2 stars Radiohead is not a "complete" "convincent" prog rock band, so if this album were a masterpiece, i cannot give it 5 stars because this isnot a prog album so, lets start:

As we know, Radiohead is one of the most well known bands around the world, well i think that, and their first bomb was that song Creep, a love song a pain song i dont know, but that is included in this album, i think the most of the people who bought this album, was because of only that song, but anyway, this is their debut album, and it sounds too simple, with guitars, in every song we can find similar chords and always the same time signature. You is i think their first single, a good song, all Radiohead fans (like me) enjoy it for sure, then the song Creep. their most overrated song, then How do You, Stop Whispering, another two songs, nothing in special, but then here comes one of the best songs here, Thinking About You, it is the acoustic version, because the fast version is horrible, this is beautiful, excellent lyric and for me the music is quite simple but sounds good, then Anyone can Play Guitar which talk aa bit about Jim Morrison, then Ripcord, next Vegetable, i dont know really what is the beauty of this song, but i really love it, next Prove Yourself, I Cant, Lurgee, three simple songs ... and for me the best track of this album is the last one Blow Out, it has a very good sound, distorted guitars and great composition, of course this is heir first and worst album, but it was the beggining of a great band, Thom Yorke`s voice is great like always, but this album is not so good, so for progressive fans im sure it is horrible, for me its not horrible but i will give it only 2 stars.
