Karma Police is a great single, and quite the spirit of Ok Computer. This single includes two great B-sides as well. One thing to clear up is that this isnt a different version than any other Kamra Police, whether single or album.
The first B-side on here is "Meeting in the Aisle" which is a very pretty electronica tinged instrumental, thats quite Kid A. The thing that I find the most interesting of these OK Computer singles is that they reflect whats to come for Radiohead, now that we know.
"Lull" is much like what we saw on The Bends, only fresher. I thought that the Bends was very similar to much other stuff by not nearly as good bands. They must've copied, but "Lull" is quite a good song.
Again, this is an excellent single to have and to hold, till death do you part. Excellent intro to Radiohead or excellent way to continue with them.

'Karma Police', track 6 of OK Computer, is an exceptionally well-crafted song. Combine that and two other great songs, including 'A Reminder' (one of the best B-side tunes available from Radiohead), and you have yourself a worthy collectible item.
Take notice that I have used the phrase, 'worthy collectible item' instead of 'worthy purchase'. I say this to suggest that it is only worth buying if you are a dedicated Radiohead fan, looking to build a collection. However, a more 'worthy purchase' would be the "No Surprises/Running Away From Demons EP", as it includes the same two B-sides, plus three additional ones and one other OK Computer single.

Karma Police was a great song, but I think the B-Side versions of "Climbing Up the Walls" are much better.
The Zero 7 Mix is superb. Quite jazzy and the bass and beat are really very neat. The keyboars sound lovely and the guitars sound very very cool. I really like this song.
The Fila Brazilla Mix is nice, has a real percussion feel to it. Thom's singing is much slower than in any other version. Very light, not heavy at all. Airy almost. Not the best, but still quite good.
Excellent for the Radiohead collector.

the best single in the ok computer record. the band showcased the maturity of their music.. which is far better than their kick ass Creep and fake plastic trees singles. been listening to this for years and it never gets old!

This single was a bit of a disappointment. The track karma police is of course an excellent track beyond comparison. the zero 7 mix of climbing up the walls is not bad. i would give it four stars. the fila brazilia mix is listenable and enjoyable, but really not such a great remix at all. it does not change the order of the vocals at all, only the music, stripping it down completely and too drasically. the original is far better. if you are a collector, this single is worth getting. otherwise, stick with karma police cd1.

First of all, the songs on this single are great. But at the import price, you'd be better off getting the "Airbag/How Am I Driving" EP, which gives you Melatonin, A Reminder, *and* a few other excellent songs. You probably already have Ok Computer, so there's not much point in getting this, unless you really want the cover artwork.
Once again, these songs are some of the best Radiohead have written, but the disc itself isn't a very economical choice.

Its has 2 brilliant remixes on the album just as scary as the original 'climbing up the walls' especially with the zero 7 mix. if your a radiohead fan this is definatly one of the singles you should get.

This single,is arguably radiohead at their most perceptive. What makes this single work is directness of the lyric and the simplicity of the sound. The rhythm is insistent, the vocals fragile and strained, which results in a chilling record.
One not to be forgotten while we are 'still on the payroll'.
