5.0 out of 5 stars Me likee, 8 Aug. 2007
By 
This review is from: Stephen Malkmus (Audio CD)
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.
