Though Pablo Honey is generally met with a lot of ambivalence around these parts, it's still a pretty significant milestone. It may not have played to their strengths, but there's no denying that without the success of Pablo Honey and Creep  we wouldn't have had some of the most intriguing band careers of the past two decades.

I wonder how many people who just loved Pablo Honey are still around as Radiohead fans?  I mean the people that bought it in 93 and gave the band enough support to let it do what it eventually did. 

 

I know I didn't follow REM to the end after jumping on hard at the beginning.  To me they'll always be Chronic Town - Green (and a smattering of later offerings).  I wonder if there are a lot of Pablo - The Bends people out there.

 

I suppose I'll give it another listen now, just to jar my brain after six or seven listen throughs of Amok, lol.

Believe me, there are plenty, especially here in the UK. Just look at the comments section on literally any NME article about Radiohead.

i was a fan since the bends but i had this english teacher who didn't like ok computer and beyond and it just weirded me the hell out!

 

as for REM I followed them since out of time and only jumped ship with around the sun and actually really liked kollaps into NOW!

 

20 years though...

 

reaching the point where a good number of radiohead fans weren't even alive then!


FREE TILL!
then make him do tricks!

I used to only know rem through automatic for the people but this forum helped me discover that even though one album was awful and the rest had a few sub par songs, ultimately rem still made a lot of really awesome music post-major label switch even some great songs up until the end

Conversely I also have no major problems with Pablo honey and definitely enjoy some songs while others I'd be happy never hearing again. The bends is really awesome but has a couple of those too

I love Lurgee. Everything about the song is fantastic. I still give it regular listens. The rest of the album is good and I'll give it a listen every so often for a change-up though that's all it will ever be as the rest of their catalog is miles above.

 

The Bends is one of my fave albums so yes, there are definitely still a few fans. Gotta love Bullet Proof. Fell in love as soon as I hear that song.

Why on earth would you do that to yourself? NME is fucking terrible.

 

I agree though, the comments just boil down to 'Use loads of guitarssss agaiinnnnnnnn'

NME isn't great, but it's alright for music news.
