Anyone devastated by the end of pavement will not be disappointed with this fantastic album.probably more of an easy listen than a most pavement albums,this is packed with beautiful pop songs about yul brinner,pirates and cold mornings in alaska.many pavement moments,still lyrically and sonically obscure and obtuse,this has definetely more of an accesible feel with it's pop culture references.'pink india' and 'trojan curfew' are beautiful,poignant songs with typically unusual subject matter.'jenny and the ess-dog' is a scathing but well-observed song about a relationship from a dog's point of view..perhaps? this is a very poignant and amusing journey round mr.malkmus' head,where history,geography and the banal aspects of contemporary culture collide,proving him to be the creative genius we knew him to be all along.

It's very difficult to know how to rate an album like this. On the one hand it is an album of beauty, integrity and intellect that far surpasses 99 percent of its contemporary peers. The problem is that Steve Malkmus' debut is (and I don't say this lightly), a mediocre Pavement album. There are few of the hooks, idiosyncratic timings and raw edges that underpinned Pavements best moments and while the lyrics still tower above practically anybody else, not even the beauty of "Church on White" can deny that this is another 'pavement' album devoid of the dynamic 'highs and lows' of "Slanted&Enchanted", "Wowee Zowee" and alike....As a staunch Pavement fan, I love it, as will every other pavement fan......but this release will only maintain pre-existing love affairs and may not appeal to the uninitiated.

Twelve months ago I knew nothing of SM or his previous band, Pavement, but having seen them for the first time on their visit to Manchester last year, I knew enough to try this album. Cleary SM was the heart of Pavement, musically and lyrically and this album seems to carry on where Pavement left off. At first listen, I though it was OK but nothing special - given time however this album grows on you becoming absolutely addictive. The CD is a permanent resident in my car and the tunes are never out my head. It might not be the most rocking of albums and be a little poppy at times but who cares cause it makes me happy. Give it a try and plenty of listens and you won't be disappointed.

I bought this album on the strength of interesting reviews, having never even heard Pavement. At first I shrugged and thought "so what?" ... I thought it was derivative and a bit too self-consciously New York. But having listened to it a lot I have to say that it's grown on me: great hooks, smart lyrics, nice production and - above all - a feel that a real person with real ideas and a brain has worked hard over it, creating an overall feel that permeates the whole thing, even though the songs themselves are pretty varied. (Worst track is the one about the pirates, that everyone raves about. New Order anyone?)

One of the worst album covers of the new millenium... but definitely one of the best albums lurks inside. This is a brilliant and versatile album. It's mellow and engaging enough to keep you coming back for more when you don't know what to listen to, it's poppy and rocky enough to play for groups of friends who aren't into the same music as you, it's complex and simple, fun and challenging. And Stephen Malkmus remains one of my 5 favourite guitar plays of all time.

It's unfortunate firstly that more people won't be exposed to this record due to Malkmus' underground appeal and pedigree. It's unfortunate secondly that Malkmus did such brilliant work previously with Pavement since no doubt a lot of Pavement fans have dismissed this in comparison. I think it's as good, possibly even better.

Definitely check this record out if you haven't already. Also, if you can, check out the video to Jo Jo's Jacket (the funniest music video I can think of), and Sin Taxi - the B-side to the Discretion Grove single.

Having witnessed Pavement's rise from early shows at Glasgow University, through to their final show ever at Glasgow Barrowlands last year, from abandoning Sonic Youth's concert at half time simply because Pavements support performance wasso phenomenal, from a 2.30pm appearance at reading 1992 to their double header at Glasgow's Garage and Art School. I feel better placed than most to comment on the value of Mr Malkmus eponymous debut.
Looking back on the early years of Pavement we find albums littered with works of great beauty, "Here" and "Summer Babe" - Slanted and Enchanted, "Stop Breathing" Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain and "Black Out" Wowwee Zowee, not to mention rasping pop songs - "Zurich Is Stained", "Grave Architecture" & the entire "Watery Domestic" EP however,over recent years - Malkmus' Pavement (whilst still producing works of great wit and musicality, "Shady Lane", "Spit On A Stranger" & "Carrot Rope" to name but a few) albums have failed to reach the dizzy heights set by their earlier works, that is until now !!!
Undoubtedly this is his most complete body of work, certainly more accessible than Wowee Zowee and Slanted and Enchanted, So it sounds just like Pavement, but a more melodic Pavement , a calmer and more settled pavement , and all the more beautiful for it.
