4 stars First i want to say something that i have said in another reviews, in PA Radiohead is not a "whole" Progressive Band, they are in Art Rock section, but we dont really know where they belong (subgenre), so because of that i cannot give to this beautiful DVD 5 stars, because it is not a masterpiece of progressive music, if this site were about rock, i will give it 5 stars, but not in this case. The DVD title is 7 television commercials, it was made int the OK Computer era, when Radiohead was in the mouth of every kid, (at least in my country). Well, if youre expecting some live video, then dont buy this DVD, here we can find only comercial videos, the first is Paranoid Android, maybe the proggiest song, or one of the most enjoyable songs for a prog lover, the video is an anime, a crazy history of two kids, its really a good but weird video, next it is my favorite Radiohead`s video , Street Spirit, it was made in black and white, it is fabolous, really beautiful, with time changes and a great direction, No Surprises is a cool video, Thom Yorke`s head into a fishbowl, then Just, is the strangest of all because it is a history about a man lying in the middle of the street, there are subtitles to understand the conversation, but subtitles dissappear when the last sentence will be mentioned... and that leave us with doubts, great video, then High and Dry, another god video but not the best, i like the girl in there, next Karma Police, another great song and aan amazing video, at the end we can think in so many ways, i dont knot, but thats the beauty of that kind of videos, and the last is the beautiful Fake Plastic Trees, like the song, the video is beautiful, showing us how fake the world is, so after that points, and because im a huge Radiohead fan, im going to give it 4 stars, if you like "modern" and different music, this will be a great addition for you.

Pretty Good!
