Quite unique. Within the space of their two most recent albums -“ Kid A and Amnesiac -“ Radiohead have snatched old concepts of new romanticism from the Casio-poetry of the early 80s while re-directing Lo-Fi from the trash culture advocates of New York’s Hudson River art-rock scene. Like architects, not poets, the new guise of Radiohead involves the creation of works characterised by qualities of designed fragility, elegant minimalism and permanence of state. I just thank God all that bloated prog-rock bullshit of OK Computer is over -“ it was like every Brooks Brothers yuppie had rediscovered their soul in lyrics that crossed concepts of Apple Macs and pig gristle. Hip-ly vile. I Might Be Wrong is a live album that focuses on the new Radiohead sound, offering eight brilliant tracks including The National Anthem, Morning Bell and True Love Waits. An utterly awe-inspiring piano and vocals version of Like Spinning Plates is the feature. The one and only drawback on I Might Be Wrong is the fact that despite near flawless engineering and musicianship on the recordings, Tom Yorke as a vocalist suffers from the tedious disease of world-weary rockstar-itis on The National Anthem. Like shit dust on wings, Yorke’s vocals inflict an excruciatingly lazy, sloppy and disinterested edge to the live version of this track.
