Awesome as only Radiohead can be!!
Jason
TKOL was more of a slow grower for me, but these tracks feel more likely to grab instant interest but not hold on for long.
Pen Name?
I was blown away by the performance at Austin City Limits!

2011 was a busy year for Radiohead. A new album, a "record store day" single, the Radiohead newspaper, another From The Basement, multiple tv appearances, and a boatload of remixes. As for The King of Limbs, reviews have been mixed at best. Some will agree it's another great Radiohead record, while others wrote it off as mediocre and derivative of their earlier forays into teh beatz. Regardless of how you felt about The King of Limbs, I think both parties will be able to agree that these two tracks represented here are of the highest quality and are certainly among the best Radiohead tracks released in quite some time, Staircase in particular. If you've seen TKOL: FTB, you'll know what to expect. In fact, these recordings are the same takes as the ones used in those From The Basement sessions. While I do think Staircase could've used an extra dash of studio magic, both tracks have been heavily re-touched and re-mixed to acheive near perfect audio fidelity. If I'm hearing correctly, Thom's voice has definitely been re-recorded in rough areas as well, giving these songs a nice ready-for-primetime polish. As for the songs themselves, Daily Mail is a haunting piano driven number that harkens back to the days of You And Whose Army? which crescendos into a hot mess of guitars and horns. Staircase is a beautifully life-affriming dance song (!) that ends with what is simply the greatest Radiohead ending in existence. Seriously, it's that great. Download these, listen to them. Cherish them. This is music for the soul that goes beyond what any review could try and explain.

The Daily Mail is an amazing song, Staircase isn't great but it's not bad. A must have for any Radiohead fan.

Kind of makes you wonder what would have happened if Radiohead wasn't so stuck on the whole 40 minute album thing, what TKOL would have sounded like. It doesn't matter, cause they released both these tunes and they are both fantastic. Read other reviews for details on the performances from IN the Basement or whatever, bottom line is that you will listen to The Daily Mail 100 times in a row once you buy it.

I was blown away by the performance at Austin City Limits! Staircase, Daily Mail and Identikit were new to me, I hope they signal a new direction for the band, and a new album?! There is so much more in these pieces,the brilliance of the compositions, the complexity of the sound, Thom Yorke's voice, the added drums (thank you Clive Deamer!) and the layers upon layers that Jonny Greenwood paints... There is a lightness to them too, a dreamlike quality, they don't feel like the abandoned spiral towards the abyss of Weird Fishes ( as much as I enjoy that!) or the helpless doom of Where I End and You Begin ( as much as I enjoy that too!!) Reckoner came to mind, they seemed to continue the line of thought.
It's hard to describe the complexity of what they achieve, Tangerine Dream came to mind all of a sudden, Philip Glass with a dose of Telecaster, A Love Supreme! Radiohead is a sound machine operated with extreme precision, and professionalism. Oh, gosh, they are great at what they do, and they have fun experimenting!
Glenn Gould! I watched Lotus Flower on you tube and it crossed my mind,I just hope Mr. Yorke will keep sharing his brilliance with us, yes, we do appreciate the beauty and we are grateful, keep playing!

I purchased this after seeing the songs performed on a cable channel. The sound quality is poor and does not even come close to what I heard on the video production. I am a big fan of Radiohead but am disappointed with this,
