5.0 out of 5 stars Pavement's Infinite Spark, 11 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brighten the Corners: Nicene Creedance Edition (Audio CD)
Brighten the Corners possesses cool cover with art which reminds me of Ka-Zar (a sort of land that time forgot pre-historic Tarzan with a sabre-toothed tiger as his best friend) one of my favourite Marvel comic book characters of my childhood. Three songs, which occur at the start, mid and end point of the album define this album for me.
o Stereo kicks off the album and references Geddy Lee and from there on in catapults me back to the late 70s when I was immersed in prog rock, and to the first album I really loved, the space opera 2112, which was seldom off my stereo.
o Type Slowly starts with you waking up with shafts of sunlight coming through the window, and lyrics which paint a surreal half dream, half-conscious state, before gently stating its quiet manifesto of resistance in the urge to type slowly.
o From the initial dead man walking drum roll every note of Fin contributes to a growing sense of melancholy & resignation, even has it diverts along the line of a Shawshank Redemption-like escape, and then the song finds release in the form of a beautiful, fractured guitar solo which goes somewhere cosmic before leaving you behind in a reference to its alternative track title, Infinite Spark.

My re-introduction, following a long absence, to Pavement. Also my favourite Pavement album!
