Radiohead: Pablo Honey Collector’s Edition Disc 2 (2009)

Capitol Records
My Rating: 51/100
Disc 2 of the PABLO HONEY Collector’s Edition contains all of the requisite
b-sides that a fan would expect. Conspicuously absent from a completist’s
perspective though are the band’s earliest demos, particularly the ON A
FRIDAY demo and the MANIC HEDGEHOG demo. Still, it’s fun to hear the band’s
earliest tracks, particularly cornballers like “Pop Is Dead.” Just makes you
scratch your head even more that this is Radiohead. Highlights are “Stupid
Car”, the punked up version of “Thinking About You”, “Million Dollar
Question,” the gorgeous US version of “Stop Whispering” (sounds like
something from the Cranberries’ debut), and the live version of “Nothing
Touches Me.” I probably wouldn’t bother buying this reissue, but the 4’s and
the 5’s are worth buying the mp3’s for fans.
