Radiohead - King Of Limbs remixes
Now that they've all been gathered on one compilation, the various Radiohead remixes that have been released on 12" throughout 2011 seem to make more sense, if that's not something of a betrayal of the concept. If you were going to be fanciful and regard them as an 'album' then it's the best thing Radiohead have put their name to since Amnesiac. It works surprisingly well as a long-player, with a wide variety of styles from some excellent producers. Highlights would have to be cuts from Jacques Greene, Blawan and Shed. Needless to say, kudos to Radiohead for shining their influential light on the fertile electronic/bass/whatever-you-call-it-don't-call-it-post-dubstep scene. Interesting nerdy fact: the Jacques Greene remix cleverly changes at 1-minute intervals.
