critics' view

The days of whine and poses may be over, but don’t tell that to Radiohead singer Thom Yorke. He has survived the demise of grunge with all of his anxiety and disillusionment intact. Which hardly means that his group’s music hasn’t matured. On the contrary, Radiohead are one of the few guitar-based bands of the mid-’90s that has grown by leaps and bounds. When their first single, “Creep,” leapt out of MTV’s Buzz Bin, in 1993, it came off like a Nirvana wanna-be from hell; the song’s obligatory loud/soft dynamics and Yorke’s self-deprecating lyrics rang empty. But one listen to Radiohead’s third album, OK Computer — a stunning art-rock tour de force — will have you reeling back to their debut, Pablo Honey, for insight into the group’s dramatic evolution.
