I Really love this Album!
Just Radiohead strait out of the gate to show the WORLD what talent they have!
Always My Favorite Radiohead
The majority of people heard "Creep" and dismissed this album as second rate Nirvana. They are missing out. This album is straight forward, yes. And freaking brilliant about it. This was before Radiohead went on their quest to be as experimental as possible (which often comes off as pretentious to me). I love straight forward Radiohead much more than anything they released after OK Computer, but this is my favorite. I can’t really say which are the standout tracks because they are all awesome in their own way. What I can say is "Creep" (while a great radio cut) is IMO the weakest track on this album. And "Creep" is still leaps and bounds better than anything from most bands' entire catalog.
I recommend listening to Lust for Life by Lana Del Rey as this album is pure trash. Ugh as if.
Such a flop
Such an underrated album!
This debut from one of the best bands ever, Radiohead, deserves much more praise than it received. “Creep” is the standout track, and needs more praise.
Creep pls come back 2 me
By Dont be a moron!..
I juz bought it. But cannot find in purchased music to download again, need help!
Start with The Bends
Hardcore fan here, if you're trying to get into Radiohead then start with The Bends. This album does its job by being a 90s grunge album, but that's just it. Radiohead is a band that goes beyond conventional limits and breaks musical barriers that most wouldn't dare to touch. Pablo Honey is the only album in their discography where this artistic bravery is absent.
Another issue here is that the album sounds like a big mess. Radiohead' albums are known for being sewn together with one cohesive sound and idea. Pablo Honey meanwhile, sounds more like the band trying to get a grip on what they want to be.
In a nutshell, don't feel bad about skipping this one.
Also Creep is bad.
Perfect (to me, at least)
By Reaper Zeke
This is one of those very few albums in my collection that I call Perfect Albums - one that I can turn on and listen to from end to end without being tempted to skip even a single track. Maybe it's not the dreamy, ethereal, or even the downright bizarre Radiohead of more recent years; this is the powerful Radiohead of old, and listening to this album not only makes me smile but it makes me miss the days when Radiohead was a rock band.
Not even creep

If you're a fan
If you're a fan, this isn't an album to be shunned. Plenty of great tracks that are a bit reminiscent of Jeff Buckley in the arrangements, ("you" could've been on "grace") and of course many just straight original songs.
If you're not a fan it may not be the best introduction. Still good though.
(Since when did iTunes reviews start having the tenor of YouTube comment trolling? Is no one regulating this stuff?)
