CRITIC REVIEWS

Entertainment Weekly

This British buzz band’s single ”Creep” is the ultimate neurotic teen anthem. It mates Smiths-type self-consciousness (”I don’t belong here”) with dramatic U2-like vocals and guitar, with Cure-style heavy but crunchy pop.

Pablo Honey was probably Radiohead's worst album, although it is brilliant.

A.V. Club

The themes of alienation were established early, but their earliest expressions (“I’m a creep / I’m a weirdo”) were as blunt as possible. It isn’t a bad song, but like much of Pablo Honey, it feels disposable.

AllMusic

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.

I try to ignore this album's existence, just like I do with Metallica's "St. Anger."

You is a great track, and an amazing vocal performance from Yorke, other than that track this album is a shitshow of noise with guitars. its a meh grunge album and a terrible Radiohead album
