I hear that Pablo Honey wasn't really well received among fans/critics because it sounded too grunge like. is that really true? i don't know too much about Radioheads history as I've been avoiding the band until recently

I don't know if it wasn't well received, but they were perceived as another one of 'those bands' circa 1992/93 - good, but you know, join the queue - and I don't think, 'Creep' aside, that anybody started sitting up and paying much notice until The Bends appeared.

Listened to Supercollider, Butcher, Daily Mail and Staircase for the first time. Only Supercollider has stuck in my head. I love it! Nonetheless, I'll be listening to them again. I agree that these don't really fit in with TKOL. That said, even some songs on TKOL don't really fit in with TKOL. Just a really patchy album that doesn't know if it wants to be Thom Yorke solo or Radiohead.

Just making sure that whatever I'm reading online is accurate (especially in Japan where people tend to have different opinions about album; many Japanese guys online thought Burn The Witch was horrible, which i didn't necessarily think).

actually one guy described AMSP as "the album where all the members let Thom do whatever he wants to cope with his hardship after his marriage/relationship broken down", which sounded accurate at some degree.

It's the fucking internet, of course it's accurate.

If you really want to know how Pablo Honey was received, go read contemporary press reviews of it from 1993. The music media has the attention span of a goldfish, such that any long lived artist is condemned to have each new release greeted as a 'return to form' (like the last album, and the one before that).

I know that Discovery by Daft Punk was hated by some people when it was released. yet its considered as the house music classic. so I guess same thing could happen to Radiohead.

Also, Metallica's Load was actually decently well received in mid 90s, wtf, right?

Radiohead's Thom leaves partner Rachel Owen after 23 years | Daily Mail Online

they weren't technically married but they split last year, apparently

I've listened to RHCP plenty of times, the majority of his lyrics are nonsense thrown together because they rhyme. I once saw the lyrics of "Can't Stop" described as "cryptic," which is the most hilariously polite way they could possibly be described. It's absolutely fair.

That's, like, what the album is about.

I had the exact same reaction as Cobbler after looking over the lyrics. I heard the news when it broke but had completely forgotten about it.

Burn the Witch and The Numbers don't really fit in, but virtually everything else is about being depressed, anxious and lonely after making some terrible life decisions that you deeply regret, so yeah, no coincidences here.

I think that is a bit of a stretch. Thom's life of late no doubt influenced it, strongly maybe, but it's not as simple as that. Here's Radiohead's breakup record, guys.

According to this I should fucking love the album after perusing the lyrics.
