Pablo Honey
“Radiohead's debut album, Pablo Honey, is a promising collection that blends U2’s anthemic rock with long, atmospheric instrumental passages and an enthralling triple-guitar attack that is alternately gentle and bracingly noisy. The group has difficulty writing a set of songs that are as compelling as their sound, but when they do hit the mark – such as on Anyone Can Play Guitar, Blow Out, and the self-loathing breakthrough single Creep – the band achieves a rare power that is both visceral and intelligent” (Erlewine).
