I've heard only Puablo Honey and The Bends, and I think they're both great. I've listened to them more than any other discs in the last few months (I've only this year "discovered" Radiohead), especially the latter. That they are not original makes no difference to me--the music stands well on its own merits. Criticism of that sort is infinite. Recently I read a published review that blasted a band for using the "cliche" guitar/bass/drums/vocal lineup, as if that combination stagnated the music. As if the actual composition were flawed by it. You see, worthless criticism of this sort is endless and is biased by factors outside the music on the record. OK Computer is on its way to me, and I'm very much looking foreward to it.
