Wonderful

"Street Spirt (Fade Out): A true Radiohead classic. If you haven't heard this song, you're really missing out. Easily one of the ten best songs the band has ever done. I'm don't think it needs to be described; just know that it's amazing. 5/5Talk Show Host: Another classic. Driving repetition of a guitar riff until it climaxes, complimented by eerie vocals and lyrics. This one pops up at live shows more often than Street Spirt does, surprisingly, so there are various live versions floating around on the net that are much better than the recorded one. Was featured in the modern remake of Romeo and Juliet.Bishop's Robes: This would have fit nicely onto OK Computer. A softer song that focuses more on aural landscapes than anything. Very emotional and very good. 5/5This is easily the best single Radiohead ever released."
Amazing

"Street Spirit is a trademark Radiohead song. And in this instance, it is accompanied by two superlative B-sides, even though "B"-sides is hardly a fair tag given the quality of these songs. Talk Show Host is a somewhat experimental dig at the media while Bishop's Robes is a smooth, simple track which sees Thom looking back at his schoolboy days with a measure of melancholy. A thing of beauty."
I'd give this 6 stars if i could

"its official, this is one the best singles i have ever heard. period. Street Spirit has that really deep sounding acoustic/electric guitar line that gives me chills. It took time to make me fully appreciate it, but when it hit me, BAM! This song is great for when you're feeling depressed.
Talk Show Host has an amazing keyboard line in it. It has this weird, cloudy atmospheric feel to it. It produces emotions in me that i rarely ever feel. There isnt exactly a real chorus to it either. its amazing, just a steady flow of gray heaven.
Bishop's Robes is a very dark song. Its emotional intensity stunned me the first time i heard it, the way Thom delivers the line "I am not going back", its just powerful.
I think this single will effect you just as much as it effected me if you allow it to. Even non-radiohead fans will appreciate it."
