Pablo Honey is the only Radiohead album where I haven't heard all the tunes, and judging from the love it gets around here, I don't think I'm missing much.

Going to stay out of this till The Bends - please rig up lots of ties during this draw.

Thinking about you is one of my favorites. But the album does get kinda weak at times, but it's not awful. I still like it better than HTTF.

Yeah I agree that the album is not awful. Some weak tunes like How Do You and Vegetable but there is good stuff too like Stop Whispering, Lurgee, Blow Out, Creep and Thinking About You!

How Do You for now.

Never bothered with this album, I've kinda worked backwards in listening to R-Head stuff, and with The Bends being such an underwhelming CD, I never felt any need or desire to listen to Pablo Honey....

So I'll seeya at Round Bends.

You also talked me into How Do You, that's one of the few I instantly remember not caring for.

Who the hell wants to slog through all this crap? This album has like 2 or 3 good songs and doesn't even deserve to be included in this poll. Couldn't we have just pulled the obvious standout tracks and called it a day?

Wake me up when it's time to either prevent Lurgee from getting eliminated or proclaim it the winner.

See you in a week.

Anyone Can Play Guitar gets my vote. That chorus is awful. Truly awful.

Oh, You (musically) and Blow Out are masterpieces. There are tunes here that are much better than Creep IMHO.

Still, about half of the songs are really subpar.

Yeah, that's their little-known first album, written in 1153.

Ah, that was during Thom's experimental "lute" period...

Ah, the troubadour days... It was all downhill after Jonny got the Black Death in 1387. Never quite the same.

Remember that song about the Anti-Pope and the Byzantines? That one had a pretty killer hurdy-gurdy riff

My favourite off that album had to be "Joust"...the video with the peasant lying in the town square was so cool, but I wish I knew what the Duke's herald was saying

The only good song on this album is Blow Out.
