This single contains artwork similar to that of the Amnesiac album, and the song Life In A Glasshouse returns as the last track, this time the full length version, which gives the single much less of a single and more like part of the album. The only real prize on this single is the extra bizarre B-side Cuttooth, which sounds like a train because of it's beat and the piano that follows it in the background. The band actual plays together on this track, specifically the bass and drums, once again the main key figure for the present Radiohead sound. That, and wierd sound effects, which are also present on the song. The song sounds bizarre and yet is very optimistic and upbeat, something which is utterly enjoyable. The CD also comes with a computer side to it which allows you to put into the computer and watch the video to the Amnesiac song "Pyramid Song". This single I bought for only 8 bucks, and for three tracks and two of them I already have (one of them is different, but oh well), this single should have been a bit cheaper. But it's from Radiohead, and someone who doesn't have Amnesiac and doesn't have the money to buy it should definetly pick this up just to briefly see what they're missing. I just wish it was packed with one or two more B-sides, maybe ones from Kid A.
