  • Summary: This debut LP brought the much-hyped Liverpool band frequent comparisons to (and a tour with) Radiohead.

    Absolutely essential!... It’s a coming-out party on the level of My Bloody Valentine's Loveless.
  2. The true beauty of Clinic is that they have, using a relatively standard rock vocabulary, constructed a truly distinctive, energetic, and magnetically appealing sound.

    Little short of brilliant. [#52, p.79]
  4. Part Radiohead, part Velvet Underground, Internal Wrangler is the bizarre, formless album that Thom Yorke wishes he could make.
  5. Though some of the thrashier songs like "C.Q." and "T.K." and a bottom-heavy song sequence detract from the album's flow, Internal Wrangler is still a strong debut from one of England's most promising and distinctive indie bands.
  6. At 31 minutes, the record is a short and bitter mind-melter.
  7. By twisting the features of various stylistic forefathers - the Velvet Underground, early Pink Floyd, Can, Wire - they've created a new hybrid of bratty garage rock and whimsical sonic experimentation that delights in its own mutant energy.
