Just Radiohead

AT LEAST the compilers of this remarkable band's Best Of had the sense to produce it over two CDs.
For Radiohead, since 1992's Creep, have forged a name for themselves as one of the greatest, most innovative and creative and yet consistent makers of music since The Beatles laid down their instruments.
There is nothing I could write here about individual songs that you don't know already, suffice to say all the band's big hitters are here - Just, Street Spirit, Paranoid Android, Pyramid Song, etc. etc. - minus the latest LP In Rainbows' tracks, as EMI didn't hold the rights.
So as a companion to In Rainbows for anyone who doesn't know the band's back catalogue intimately yet, this would be as good a place to start discovering the Oxford five-piece's songbook as any.
