City Rocker review: 

Radiodread is a remix of Radiohead’s hit album OK Computer. Most remixes of popular bands tend to be horrible; Radiodread is definetly an exception to remix album failure. This remix is awesome!

The first great aspect of Radiodread is dub music. All the clangy guitar riffs and spooky sound effects of the original OK Computer album is replaced with dub music you can dance to. Another great quality of this remix album is the singing. In place of Thom Yorke’s erie vocals, are singers who give off the “soul” vibe.

What a unique album! Everytime people are in a gloomy mood, Radiohead seems to fit the mood. This album tends to cheer people up! Very strange. Very unique. Just a great album. Have a listen, and you’ll notice yourself singing along with a smile. Then you’ll ask yourself this is the wierdest feeling because dub music and Radiohead isn’t suppose to mix! Yet the Easy All Stars have done it. They made a “dub” remix of Radiohead’s OK Computer.

Music Style: 

Dub, Ragae, Psychedelic, Party, Soulful-Singing, Warm, Chill-Out

Favorite Tracks:

  1. “Let Down”
  2. “Karma Police”
  3. “Climbing Up The Walls”
  4. “No Surprises”
  5. “An Airbag Saved My Dub”
