3 stars These two songs were written and partially recorded at the same time as the King of Limbs album, however, Radiohead said that they couldn't get them to work with the rest of the album, so they were released as a single. I think they would have been a nice addition, even as additional tracks, but this is not the case. They work well as standalone songs also, but just listening to the two of them alone only makes you want to hear more, they are just not complete by themselves. But, whatever, at least we have them. They are both very electronic sounding, not as experimental as the electronic sound on the "Amnesiac" album. They are both more accessible, so if nothing else, they serve as a good taste, or an appetizer to one of their electronic based albums like "Kid A", "Amnesiac", "Hail to the Thief" or even "King of Limbs". Since it's so short, and there is nothing that stands out as innovative about them, I would have to rate this single as Good, but non-essential. 3 stars.
