Product Description

Product Description

2009 expanded deluxe three disc (two CDs + NTSC/Region 0 DVD) edition of this 1994 album from one of the biggest and most critically successful UK bands of all time. From their beginnings sandwiched between the Grunge and Britpop music scenes to their groundbreaking internet releases, Radiohead has consistently and successfully challenged themselves musically with each album and continue to raise the bar with every passing year. Disc One contains the original album while Disc Two is filled with rarities, B-sides, BBC sessions and more. The DVD contains promo videos, live footage, television appearances and other surprises. Features 48 tracks (34 audio tracks and 14 videos). EMI.


It's that old story: unknown British band gets an American hit single, gets huge off the back of that one song, and the success ends up destroying them. Fortunately, Oxford quintet Radiohead were the exception that proves the rule. Radiohead's albatross was "Creep"--a titanic anthem to paranoia, self-hatred and self-obsession, utterly huge in every way. Pablo Honey, though, is much more than filler. "Anyone Can Play Guitar" is certainly as good as "Creep"; swathed in walls of feedback, it races blindly into a apocalyptic chorus, frontman Thom Yorke singing "As the world turns and as London burns, I'll be standing on the beach with my guitar." Certainly, indie-rock seldom got better than this, and elsewhere "Vegetable" and "Prove Yourself" pulled similar pyrotechnical tricks. Pablo Honey was later superseded by first The Bends, and later OK Computer, but it's certainly much more than a curious debut. --Louis Pattison

I'm probably one of the most unorthodox Radiohead fans. Instead of starting with "OK Computer" as my first Radiohead album, I started with "Kid A". At first I didn't like it too much, but after listening to it over and over, it began to grow on me and I eventually loved Radiohead. So I proceeded to buy OKC and "The Bends", which I really enjoyed. Then "Amnesiac" came out, so I bought that and I thought it was okay, but not up to par with "Kid A". Then, I bought the live EP, which held me over until the next album "Hail To The Thief", which is also a good album (not great, though). So that brings me to this album. This was the last Radiohead album I bought, and I have to say, it's not that bad considering all of the bad reviews I've read of it. So anyway...on to the album.
First off, you can definitely tell it was made during the late grunge era, since most of the songs are loud and self indulgent. However, the way that Radiohead performs these songs makes them a whole lot better. After this album and before The Bends, Radiohead was known as the Creep Band, but Creep isn't the only good song on here. In fact, all of the songs on here are pretty darn good if you don't start into comparisons with their other albums. My personal favorites are "Stop Whispering" and "Thinking About You" because they're the most emotional songs. But the rest of them are also really good, especially "You", "Anyone Can Play Guitar", "Vegetable", and "Blow Out". The only song I don't really like is "Ripcord" but it's still okay.

Sometimes its hard to extract an album from a whole catalogue of work, difficult to contextualize something that led to so much more. But let's try.
Way back when, a group called 'On a Friday' became a regular fixture on the local Oxfordshire band-scene before changing name and releasing Drill EP in 1992. We (some friends and I) met them at the Cambridge Junction that year and did a fanzine interview. Small venue, small audience, but there was a growing rumour in certain scenes that this one song, Creep, had serious potential. People also talked in excited tones about Lurgee, apparently the band's favourite track, and Stop Whispering, which later propelled them into the Japanese market.
The truth is that this is a record firmly rooted in the indie scene of the late 80's/early 90's, when the kids were still dorks and wore band t-shirts and converse all-stars before they were cool. we all had stupid hair and jumped up and down, stinging our eyes with our sweaty curtain-like hairdos (see the music video for the Charlatans The Only One I Know), and all because our new hero was Kurt Cobain, rest his soul. The punky energy that Radiohead had was a great live experience, but it wasn't until a year or more later, when they returned with the My Iron Lung EP that we started to notice that there was more to it, a mellow side to the rabid intensity of songs like Pop is Dead. Seeing the band once more a few months later at the end of the tour for The Bends it was like seeing the butterfly emerge from the chrysalis. The audience was twice the size and the jumping up and down had morphed almost into a group sway. Nothing of the genius of a Fake Plastic Trees, will be found in Pablo Honey.

Regardless of where it stands in relation to Radiohead's later work, Pablo Honey doesn't stand up that well on its own. It sounds kinda... amateurish. Which is completely expected. This is definitely a band that matured as it went along, that learned and grew and eventually made some of the best music of the past decade. The problem isn't that Pablo Honey is simple and uncomplicated and unexperimental- cue the Bends- but that its just not very good.
Part of this is the fault of their label. They were treated as late-comers to the grunge scene, and the aimless guitar in some of the songs and the lackluster production work point to a lack of enthusiasm on the part of the producers. Large parts of this album are unfortunately forgettable.
The record has some real standout moments, though. "You" has a kickass opening guitar line and is just a very cool song throughout. "Creep" is a great song in its own right, but it is probably hurt the most due to its huge overexposure (I STILL hear it on the radio sometimes). Among the rest of the tracks, most prove to be mediocre, although I really like Lurgee (a very sweet melody) and Blow Out. Anyone Can Play Guitar has always struck me as annoying, although it has one of the coolest intros of any Radiohead song.
This album isn't considered weak because RH fans are snobs- great pop albums like the Bends are amazing. Pablo Honey isn't a great pop album, though. It has some brief indications of their future greatness, but on the whole its endearing but subpar.
