AllMusic Review by

In 2010, Radiohead's studio albums released through 2003 were issued in two-for-one sets and distributed by EMI in some European territories. Some copies were exported to the U.S. For whatever reason, the sets paired the band's first and third albums, their fourth and fifth albums and, lastly, their second and sixth albums -- The Bends (1995) and Hail to the Thief (2003) -- which make make up this particular set. This is a straightforward pairing, with nothing fancy -- just the albums, straight up, as they were originally released, with two jewel cases within a thin cardboard sleeve. EMI added a sticker proclaiming "limited edition," but there's really no extra enticement.
