There were a lot of famous records released in the 1990s with babies on the cover. Along with Nirvana’s Nevermind and Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die, Radiohead’s 1993 debut Pablo Honey is one of the decade’s most famous be-babied records. You’ll know by now that the band themselves have an indifferent (at best) relationship with this album, but heard with modern ears this is a perfectly fine example of golden-age grungey alternativa. It's got, y'know, 'Creep' on it.

Pablo Honey is not one of Radiohead's later, more complex, and what their egotistical "true fans" like to call their most "intellectual" album. Big deal. Get over it. I love Kid A and OK Computer just as much as anyone else, but Radiohead had to start somewhere and Pablo Honey seems just the perfect place. I've heard that the band regrets writing numerous tracks off of here, particularly "Creep" because it gave people the wrong impression and almost took their careers in a direction they didn't want to go in, but it is undeniable that this album rocks with the best of the '90s alternative.
