Prog Reviewer
4 stars It's often sniffed at by those who are more taken with their later albums, but I always found Radiohead's Pablo Honey to be an intriguing debut album which successfully blends the American grunge style with early Britpop and incorporates into that mix a subtle touch here and there which proves that even at this early stage of their career, Radiohead were more inclined to experimentation than many of their contemporaries.

Little touches like the organ on Thinking About You or the angry, frustrated guitar line contrasting with the otherwise gentle and placid performances on Creep may be minor embellishments, but they show a band who understands how such a minor embellishment could completely transform a song. So on the whole I'm going to vote with my heart instead of my head and give this four stars.

Warthur | 4/5 |
