Exit Music: Songs With Radio Heads (2006)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Apr 18, 2006; Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genres: Pop, Rock

Radiohead may have inspired more disparate musicians than any ''rock'' group since the Beatles — they've been covered by jazzman Brad Mehldau, classical renegade Christopher O'Riley, and jam-blues ace Warren Haynes. Exit Music: Songs With Radio Heads set finds R&B, jazz, and electronic acts exploring Thom Yorke's strange soul music and further exploding his band's heady rhythms. It's a mixed bag, but nothing is less than interesting, from Osunlade's ecstatic electro-samba to Bilal's sultry soul-jazz take on ''High and Dry.'' Proves well-built songs can do many things.
