    Radiohead have been the subject of many, many books, and it might have seemed difficult to develop a new angle. But by focusing on one album, and looking at the music, movies, books, politics and other factors that influenced its creation, Footman has come up with a really good read. You might not agree with everything he says - I certainly don't - but he's an intelligent, articulate writer, whose enthusiasm made me want to listen to the album again (hadn't for a couple of years). Also, for those of you who think Radiohead are just doom and gloom merchants, he's got a real sense of humour, sometimes at the expense of the band and their too-serious fans. This book is highly recommended. Give it a go.

    This book is good. Not sycophantic. Well researched. Nicely Paced. I think it will satisfy the die hard fans, and the casual fans- Its as much a piece about pop culture and sociology in 1997 as it is about okc.Agree with previous reviewer. Would also add if you have to get a radiohead book, I would recommend this one. The 'story' of radiohead approached in other books isnt that interesting, but this, the story of their music, is fascinating.

    I really enjoyed this book. It beautifully captures the spirit of the band and the music. It's comprehensive, but you don't have to be an obsessive to get a lot out of it. What appealed to me most was the good thinking and good writing. I don't usually review books on Amazon, but this one stands out for me. Best enjoyed mellowing out with a glass and the music playing.

    The iconic band Radiohead. This is such an interesting read about a band that shuns publicity. If you have an interest in Radiohead, who makes up the band, how they all work together, how they met, touring, relationships etc, then this is for you.
