Pablo Honey
Billboard, April 24, 1993

U.K. quintet is primed to blast onto the American scene with initial modern rock track "Creep," a tense, guitar-dominated number that appears in unexpurgated form on this debut album. Certain tracks here may remind listeners of U2 (thanks largely to Thom E. Yorke's vocal mannerisms and overall guitar texturing), but lyrics have enough bite to make it on their own. "Ripcord," "I Can't," and "Blow Out" all contain excitement enough to heat up at target radio markets.
