It actually sounds fair.

But there's WAY too much hype for an average at best tune. Granted, after the last few crap albums it's an improvement. My instincts tell me RH will screw up the recorded version beyond recognition.

I was stoned.

I thought it was interesting.

The problem was the next day, while sober.

Gonna do that right now... as soon as The Tourist (which is now playing ) gets over. Arpeggi will have to wait for a bit.

What does everyone think of Pablo Honey?

I've kind of warmed up to it:

Stop Whispering
Blow Out
You
Creep
Anyone Can Play Guitar

I love Pablo Honey. It's a completely solid album that I can comfortably listen to without skipping a single track (unlike OK). And Blow Out, Lurgee, and You are even a Bends level of greatness.

And it's hard to beat the chorus of Anyone Can Play Guitar.

Great question! I only bought it like a week or so back and am still warming up to it. I have loved Creep and Stop Whispering ever since they showed up on MTV in 1993.
