overall as an album it's pretty bad and i can hear bad u2 imitations all over it

listening to this is homework: 90s anthropology

i'll keep the single though-- and then toss the now-dated, forgettable rest

What, "Creep"? The song is ass. "Blow Out" is the only tune I'd rescue if someone pointed a gun to my head, but it's still weak. They did get better, but they're still not decent enough for me to care. In addition, god-damn they're annoying... Dude, is this anthropological project really necessary? And if so, isn't it going off the rails? :D

!@#$%! 02.24.2021 10:14 PM

creep is memorable and sticky in the head. and it's funny to sing aloud making ridiculously histrionic voices. so i keep it for the lols. similar to beck's "loser" ha ha ha.

anthropology: i was never into them although they were popular. so i subjected myself to the sacrificial torment--for knowledge!

now i can speak authoritatively haaahaaaahaaaaaa

next: smashing pumpkins lmfao. no! hard pass.

No circumstance at all justifies listening to Smashing Pumpkins.

please, like anything you like is better than 'Soma'.

r.e. !@#$%!: a solid half of Pablo Honey is good stuff - 'Creep' is great as mentioned, 'Blow Out' is also great, but stuff like 'You' and 'Stop Whispering' is also quite fun. Plus the songs generally come out much better live. Still easily Radiohead's worst.

same year!

and in my headphones right now

eta but ok they had more years to mature at that point. nevertheless... it's a whole album. coherent, no filler, great.

flying saucer attack

 


now there is some good shit here...especially when you can't hear the singing.

a lot of great music is ruined by singing. please shut up whenever possible and play your fucking instrument :D

you're forgetting "Lurgee"! Such an underrated gem of a song. I used to love it so much when I was like 16 or so. Going around the town with an old walkman (yes, it was 90s), listening to the crappy 2nd tape copy of this album and bathing in the spring sun ... yes.


Btw, Radiohead's worst is King of Limbs, not this album.

I've never really gotten into Lurgee that much; I can appreciate it but it just seems like a bad Bends song even more so than the rest of Pablo. (The band seemed to like it though, they were still playing it occasionally into 2003.)

No, no it isn't. TKOL may be weak, but Pablo is filled with some utter shite beyond the good tracks.

Lol, here's a 13 year old Jimmy Page playing Skiffle!!

_tunic_ 02.25.2021 09:40 AM

I'm listening to myself :p

I should tell myself to sing more and scream less, but musically I'm quite good if I say so myself :rolleyes:




(no this is not me, but a Canadian band, the picture is taken from their bandcamp)

Exactly. And TKOL is utter shite with no good tracks. Do the math.

I'm sorry, Morning Mr. Magpie? Little by Little? Codex? Not to mention the great B-sides from that era.

That said, if I want an electronic Radiohead album I'll just listen to Hail to the Thief.

Up to 204 albums for the year :D

XD

anyway, blowout starts great and then suddenly turns into a poor imitation of bono. fail for me.

lurgee, goes directly to poor bono imitation. the guitar is kinda sweet though, i can see liking it, and the soundtrack to one's adolescence is a special thing, so of course, who am i to say.

nevertheless, ive had creep in my head all day and was even looking for covers online. and whether one likes it or not, that's a distinctive and original and memorable song, and you hear it and you instantly know who it is and when it was from, and that particular signature is why it endures, unlike the others tracks in that album.

i'd like to watch soupnazi's reaction of billie eilish covering it hahaaahaaahaa. i mean, i found some fakes online, so some people must be desperate for it? it's coming... (unless it already exists and i missed it?)

eta: oh yes hahahhahahhaa.
