Notes and Editorial Reviews

You have to give Christopher O'Riley credit. Even though he's already put out an excellent CD of Radiohead piano compositions, there's enough great material in the band's studio albums that he could have easily filled this second disc with crowd-pleasers. And while he did include "Street Spirit" and "No Surprises," he also threw in some surprises, great B-sides like "Polyethylene Part II" and "Gagging Order." That's not the mark of a hustler looking to cash in on one of the best bands making music today--no, it's the mark of a true fan. You have to give Christopher O'Riley credit.
