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.
