Performer Notes
  • It stands to reason that rock revisionists Easy Star All-Stars would follow DUB SIDE OF THE MOON, their dub-inflected take on Pink Floyd's all-time classic DARK SIDE OF THE MOON, with a similarly styled version of Radiohead's OK COMPUTER. Both OK COMPUTER and DARK SIDE OF THE MOON were the landmark statements of sophisticated art-rock in their times, and the All-Stars bring the same respect, care, and creative imagination to RADIODREAD as they did to the Floyd project. Even better, All-Star masterminds Michael G. and Ticklah rope in some top-shelf reggae acts--Israel Vibration, Toots & the Maytals, and Horace Andy, among them--to interpret the songs from OK COMPUTER. The resulting reggae-rock creations are clever, evocative, and highly enjoyable.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.86) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Robust horns replace the driving guitars on 'Paranoid Android', while patois-inflected Rasta sits in for the android on 'Fitter Happier'....Thoughtfully considered..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.78) - "The most radical, and best, track is 'Let Down.' Fueled by Toots Hibbert's grainy gospel fervor, it turns Yorke and company's anguished ballad into an uplifting rocksteady tune." -- Grade: B+

The Wire (p.71) - "'Airbag' is the standout track, with its guitar-meets-cello riff and extended disco mix with a dubwise reprise at the album's close."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.106) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[O]n hearing Airbag's ominous riff scaling a heavy Two Tone skank before Horace Andy's aching staccato enters, you have to admit it, this works."
