3 stars The best of Radiohead or merely the last that their old record company will be able to put out? I wouldn't mess with the CD, of course, but this is only way to get these videos other than 7 Television Commercials. All of those videos there are also here, but what I really wanted to get it for was the videos for Amnesiac and Hail To The Thief. Though titled The Best Of, it's basically a collection of all the videos they put out before making break with the record company. I could do without the Pablo Honey vids, which weren't present on 7TC. They weren't particularly inventive with those anyway. Still a nice collection of songs and indeed some of the best.

They really did start getting more creative starting with The Bends videos, quite likely due to having more funds thanks to the commercial success of the first album. They must have decided to take a break from doing videos for the Kid A album, there's nothing from that here nor have I been able to find out about the existence of any internet searching. They did come back to do four for Amnesiac and three for Hail. There's also a live version of 2+2=5, so maybe their old record company isn't through with them yet. If they put out that whole concert on DVD, I'd certainly go for it. This one probably could have been a better package had the band been involved, oh well.
