It consists of a repeating echoing guitar and is later joined by orchestrated sounds. Very mysterious sounding yet nice. You hear early experimental sounds from Radiohead here, but no vocals. A slow rhythm is established with shimmering guitars and Thom's vocals start.
There is a slow build, but it remains mostly mellow until the last minute where guitars start to whine and groan and then eventually drop off just before the end. This goes on for a short time before it abruptly ends seeming like a false start almost, then goes into the full band which carries it through the rest of the song.
This one is an excellent track and would have fit on perfectly to the main album. This is also a fan favorite but is more rock oriented than it is experimental. It sounds simple but is a very challenging song to sing because of it's jumps in range. Percussion starts on the second verse, but it is quite subdued.
It starts out mellow, but becomes more intense after the first verse with an instrumental break, and continues with that pattern. The bridge after the 2nd verse remains intense and continues through the next instrumental break, then quiets again for the third verse, but feedback is added this time.
It finishes intense with the last chorus and ends with sustained feedback. This is another track that would have fit well on the main album. This EP was nominated for a Grammy, and competed against full length albums. It also fulfills it's purpose quite well as a bridge between two different kinds of albums in that all of the tracks would have fit quite well on either "Ok Computer" or "Kid A". These songs are all good as stand alone songs too, and that is why this EP works so well. The only issue here is this, is it worth searching for?
So, if you see the EP in the discount bin, definitely pick it up, but it has pretty much been made obsolete by the Collector's Edition of "Ok Computer". As a lover of b-sides and rarities, this is my kind of record It has those songs that couldn't be fitted on the album, or to independent for that album a masterpiece to be said: OK COMPUTERso, it shows a very dark and somber, sometimes ambient direction that in time was tamed by the band This is a very strong EP from Radiohead.
This collection of songs proves how Radiohead were writing a lot of strong material at the time of Ok Computer. But don't listen to this expecting Ok Computer 2.
On many of the songs on this EP, the band were trying a lot of new things, and increasing t You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not. Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker.
None of the tracks quite match up to the songwriting skills on OK Computer but they are still excellent tracks. The best offering here is Polyethylene, one of my favourite Radiohead pieces. Part one is short acoustic intro that explodes into a much more distorted guitar based tune which is part two. This EP is definetly worth tracking down if you love Radiohead.
I am rating this album 4 stars because it is an excellent EP to have, yet i would never consider it essential. Although I could not give it 5 stars because there is a sense of some promising ideas not quite developed as far as they could be and as with many RADIOHEAD works, I wish it had come with lyrics because I can barely understand what's being said even though English is Airbag - Radiohead - Airbag / How Am I Driving?
(CD) native language! Stylistically, the album seems somewhere in between The Bends and OK Computeralthough not quite "classifiable" as either.

Yes, they are songs that didn't make the cut for OK Computer, but hey, it's Radiohead and it's 7 bucks. Meeting in the Aisle is probably my favorite, even though it's all instrumental.
Pearly is an interesting song and Thom's voice sounds awesome on it. I had to listen to A Reminder over and over because every time I listen to it I derive some new Airbag - Radiohead - Airbag / How Am I Driving? (CD) from it. Polyethylene is pretty to listen to. Palo Alto is a just a classic b-side any Radiohead obsessive like me needs to have, Airbag - Radiohead - Airbag / How Am I Driving? (CD). The album art is also really interesting, complete with excerpts from Noam Chomsky.
I do wonder why they billed this album as "aimed at the USA". Excellent companion piece to OK Computer. I love the packaging too, a simple digipak with a booklet glued to the inside front that's, um, interesting to read. All songs flow well and all songs but the title track are B-sides, a pretty awesome deal if you get the new re-releases for 6 bucks. Gotta get this one if you're into this band at all.
I am a rabid Radiohead fan and this CD was no disappointment! If you add these tunes to your iPod's library they blend right in with all of the other Radiohead tracks. A must-buy for anyone who is a fan.
One person found this helpful. If you enjoy OK Computer, but are tired of it and want something new, but similar; this is the perfect mini-album. Definitely give it a listen if you haven't already.

Well this used to be a costly item for completists Airbag - Radiohead - Airbag / How Am I Driving? (CD), formerly only released in the US and deleted quite quickly. But now March it is available again at a sensible price anyone who likes OK Computer should buy it. Great artwork and some good tunes including the haunting instrumental Meeting in the Aisle and the beautiful A Reminder.
Apart from Airbag the Airbag - Radiohead - Airbag / How Am I Driving? (CD) of the tracks are B sides and they feel more like OK computer than The bends. My favorute track is Reminder because of the electric guitars. Slighty expensive but is worth every penny.
Go ahead and buy it. This interests me. It still does interest me, after having listened to it many times. That's a good thing I think. Report abuse. Mostly the b-sides from OK Computer, worth purchasing of you don't want to buy the singles individually. The tracks on there would easily fit within the original album.
Amazing addition to the collection. A studio version of Palo Alto on a mini album is very welcome. Pages with related products. See and discover other items: Explore melatonins for adults.
