4 stars This album delivers the incredible Radiohead live show, showing off how dynamic and energetic this band is.

This version of "The National Anthem" has so much more life and atmosphere. Radiohead obviously enjoy playing this one and make it a real favorite to play live. "I Might Be Wrong" is played with much more speed and sounds more livelier than the Amesiac version. Another brilliant reworking from its original and the crowd respond really well. "Morning Bell" is quite similar to the studio version and gets a good crowd response as it is one of the best tracks on Kid A. "Like Spinning Plates" is the most different from the studio version. I love this version. The Amnesiac version was a technical racket of noise. This live version has evolved into a gentle yet exhilarating piano with tranquil vocals from Mr. Yorke. This is definitely the standout track on the album even though every track is incredible. The vocals and lyrics get their spotlight as it is a lot easier to digest than on Amnesiac. "Idioteque" was probably the best track on Kid A and it works wonders here. It is played excellently live as it is a difficult track to recreate. Obviously they gave it some tweaking to bring something new to the stage. If you listen close enough you will hear the crowd singing along to Thom's strange ramblings. "Everything in its Right Place" is extended a lot here with a strange build up intro that is new to this album. The track is everything that the studio album is and more. "Dollars and Cents" is a lot livelier and the bass sounds even better here. The last two minutes are exceptional as they progress further and further than the studio track dared to go. Then we have "True Love Waits" which is an extra special acoustic piece by Thom Yorke alone. Still one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard. Thom's voice is emotional and moving and it's probably his greatest moment as a singer and a songwriter. This is a brilliant close to a fine live album. You'll love this piece of music.

For a short live album, it is excellent and should be considered one of the band's best albums. Because of the passion of the songs and the uniqueness throughout most of the album, it is definitely deserving of your time.
