2 stars Nice old single!

Radiohead are one of my favorite bands, a band I loved since my first experience with their music, and whose album The Bends keeps as my favorite.

From that album, this single came out, one of their all time finest songs (of course in my opinion) is the last track of The Bends, entitled "Street Spirit (Fade Out)", whose video clip is also one of my top 3 Radiohead videos. So this single, contains 3 songs and also 12 minutes of total time, something really short but hell, it's a single.

The first track is of course "Street Spirit", a haunting, beautiful track with an excellent guitar work, and the amazing vocals, very moving, very touching, a track that really provokes something on me every single time I listen to it.

The second track is "Talk Show Host", you may recognized it because it was featured on Romeo and Juliet's soundtrack. This is also a great song, with a slow and soft tempo with intriguing guitars and great use of synth as a background. Very good.

The last song is "Bishop's Robes" another B-side which could have perfectly fit in their "My Iron Lung" EP, another soft track, delicate guitar and of course a beautiful voice, I insist, accompanied by those synth effects as background. This song is not that known, but is a really, really fine Radiohead track.

This is one of my favorite Radiohead singles, I would love to give 3 stars to it, but well, to be honest 12 minutes of music are not worth buying for anyone who is not fan of the band, I mean, I only recommend it for those Radiohead fans, 2 stars.

Enjoy it!
