I dont often say wow but......

"WOW! No matter if you are a new fan, old fan, if you like amnesiac best, or pablo honey... you really need to get this single. Paranoid Android could be not only the best radiohead song on ok computer, but maybe their best song ever. To put this song on a single accompanied by two b-sides that will leave you speachless makes this purchase totally worthwile.Ok, so heres what the songs are like... Paranoid Android is just such a good song. Once you hear the 4 beeps in the beginning of this song you'd better take a seat. It has such an unbelievable feel to it created by possibly thom's best ever singing, and a guitar riff that gives you the chills. The background sound effects and such make the song all the more breath-taking. It goes into an electric guitar hardcore part towards the end proving the variety and talent involved in the making of this song. If there is one song that will leave a lasting impression on you from the OK computer cd it will be this.Polyethylene (parts 1 & 2) comes next on the single. It begins with a nice little accoustic guitar and voice piece (part 1), that would do fine as a song on its own. But then you hear 2..3.. and the electric guitar comes in adding so much to this song. Thoms singing in this part is quite powerful and meaningful, it has a cool kind of off-beat to it. Would definitely go well on the ok computer cd.Pearly* is the next and final song on this great single. As if they needed another great song after the first two, but hey, we're talkin about radiohead here... This song sounds somewhat beatles-esque in a way but with a great radiohead twist to it. I would buy the cd for this song alone. Interesting crashing of cymbals and bells lead the way in this song accompanied by a harmony of singing and guitar. Outstanding song for an outstanding cd."
Definitely one of the greatest Radiohead singles

"This single surpasses many of Radiohead's (and other artist's) singles. Not only is Paranoid Android an unforgettable alternative rock song, but the bsides are fantastic as well.Polyethylene (Parts 1 And 2)--such a great track. this could have definitely been on OK computer. it begins with an acoustic, calm snippet (part 1). but then, it breaks into an all out rock song (part 2). the track has great, meaningful lyrics and such an incomparable tune. one of their very best bsides ever.Pearly*--also a great bside. it has a different sound to it, like it could fit into OK computer in some ways, but not completely. it does have great repeat listenablity value and an addictive theme."

"Quite simply this is the greatest record of all-time.
To hear this work of genius in your living room played very loud after a hard days graft is special. To have heard it played very loud with 45,000 other people in Oxford one rainy Saturday was the one of the highlights of my life.Forget music listen to this."
