2 stars Go To Sleep!

This is a Radiohead single that came out from their Hail to the Thief album back in 2003, besides There There, and 2 plus 2 =5, Go To Sleep may be a well known song from that album, so it was nice to choose this song as a single. I have to mention that it is an extra point the video which was created for this song, it is very original and attractive.

So in this single CD, we can find 3 songs, short ones making a 10-minute album, the first is obviously "Go to Sleep" which is an excellent song, with great acoustic guitar work, a perfect structure and as usual, great vocals, there are also some synth effects within the track that makes it even more interesting.

The following tracks are previously unreleased ones (at that moment), now you can find them as some B-Sides. The second song is called "Gagging Order" which starts with soft guitar notes that may sound as a kind of country song, some seconds later Yorke's vocals appear in a delicate manner, so actually this song would suggest you going to sleep more than the title track, nice song but not really memorable.

And finishing this short single album, the band put a song named "I am a Wicked Child", which sounds more interesting than the previous one, but in my opinion it was not a really good decision to choose this song within this single, I mean it has nothing to do so the single album is not connected, the songs are very different, this song has some kind of bluesy style but as I said in the previous song, this is nothing memorable.

So this single CD is only recommendable to Radiohead fans and collectors, nothing more.

Enjoy it!
