The closest thing we have to a proper Radiohead live album, “I Might Be Wrong” documents how the band transforms its intricate songs for the stage—an especially tricky feat when talking about the moody, unconventional tracks of the Kid A and Amnesiac era. Some are redone here completely: The unearthly, backward-playing “Like Spinning Plates” becomes a glowing piano ballad, while the free-jazz horns of “The National Anthem” are replaced with Thom Yorke’s frantic beatboxing. Others, like “Morning Bell” and “Idioteque” are tweaked just enough to turn them from chilly and ominous to furious and alarming. The whole thing concludes with what was, for ages, the only official release of “True Love Waits” a mythical fan-favorite live staple that’s forever preserved here in its original, acoustic-guitar-driven form
