(and especially the "Slanted and Enchanted" album)as happy as a squirrel
in a barrel of nuts.
Maybe some of my enthusiasm for Parquet Courts is fuelled by my love for
all things Pavement, and even though songs like "Careers in combat" and
"N Dakota" could be mistaken for Malkmus compositions, Parquet Courts
are no copycats. They bring their own flavor to the table, and this
excellent collection of short and sharp songs about sex, food, drugs
and loneliness gives me some of the same excitement as hearing "is this
it?" by The Strokes for the first time.
Recommended songs: Master of my craft, Borrowed time, Yr no stoner,
Careers in combat, Stoned and starving, Disney P.T.
Some parts Pavement, some parts Wire, some parts The Spider Bags,
some parts Guided By Voices, some parts The Fall, some parts Strokes.
All parts Parquet Courts - New York City Punk Rock at its finest.
However, it really does not justify being hailed as the greatest guitar album of the decade or the band(more ridiculously)being called the new saviours of rock. It just goes to show what a dire state the indie guitar world is in when the slightest sniff of anything exciting is expected to change the face of music as we know it.
These guys are probably laughing themselves silly at such claims.
The main problem I personally have with this album (and I'm sure the hipsters will be out for my blood) is it simply runs out of steam. The second half of the album is fairly dull and low on ideas.
Perhaps it would have made for a good EP but as an album it tends to just drag.
Still, the strong tracks "Master of my Craft", "Stoned and Starving" and "Borrowed Time" are an enjoyable breath of fresh air, and at half an hour running time it's almost certainly worth a LOUD listen. Just don't expect too much.

It really begins as too energy and good songs, but soeones wouldn't be part of this, I believe could be part of experimental pieces, ok, it has a lot of energy and power. Enjoy!Published on 26 May 2014 by Frank Bozic Jr.
I gotta be brief about this. Why not listen to the bands that these guys got their tunes from, in particular Pavement.Published on 28 Dec. 2013 by Bookreader
vying with queens Of The Stone Age for album of the year. like a mish-mash of most of my favourite ever bands - the fall, the strokes, and most of all pavement. Read morePublished on 26 Sept. 2013 by nathan ward
