Simon Price reviews Olympian by Gene, 11th March 1995.

Final part of the Gene trilogy. Posted this more because of the contrasting ‘importance’ implicit in the treatment Gene get here (full page colour review by Price) compared to Jennifer Nine’s review of The Bends by Radiohead (black and white, shared review etc.)

And this despite the fact that using MM’s own clumsy star rating Gene comes out as just ‘Recommended’ compared to Radiohead’s ‘Bloody Essential’

I don’t know if this simply testament to the fact that Radiohead weren’t that important back then or if it’s proof of some MM or record company agenda to break Gene.
