Reduced to clear. Not Radioheads' best by any means, but for £1.99 you can't go wrong.

Overview:
---------------
Given that Radiohead are one of the most zealously bootlegged bands in the world--nearly every public utterance is out there somewhere--the emergence of I Might Be Wrong, the band's first ever official live album, would seem a tardy and superfluous gesture. Conversely, Radiohead have never gone out of their way to actively discourage the black market trading of their live wares. Which makes you wonder just what is the intention of this live album? Could it be for hardcore fans who wish to remain on the right side of the law? Or could it be symbolic; the drawing of a double-ledger line under the sporadically interesting but frustratingly contrary anti-guitar rock intransigence of the Kid A/Amnesiac era and the opening-up of whole new chapter? Or perhaps it's because they just wanted to put out a live album? We must wait and see. And so, in all probability, must they. Nevertheless, I Might Be Wrong--featuring eight songs culled from live shows in Berlin, Oslo, the Roman amphitheatre at Vaison le Romaine (how very Pink Floyd of them) and their triumphant homecoming gig at Oxford's South Park--is pretty much beyond reproach, even if the renditions here--"National Anthem" (Charlie Mingus inspired with a raspy Motorhead bass line) "I Might Be Wrong" (Led Zeppelin meets Blondie's "Rapture") deviate little from the script of the original studio versions. The notable exception is an enchanting recital of "Like Spinning Plates", wherein the backwards electronica of the Amnesiac original is superseded by a romantic, ornate piano accompaniment for a classic Radiohead moment. Long-term devotees will also notice the first ever appearance on record of "True Love Waits" (Yorke with solo acoustic guitar), a song which Radiohead have grappled with for years and which finally finds a handle--and a home--right here. --Kevin Maidment
