Still sounds fresh,
This review is from: Slanted and Enchanted (Luxe & Reduxe 2CD Edition) (Audio CD)
Is it really a decade since this was released? In many ways this sounds fresher than Pavement's later albums - a pick n mix of ideas being thrown together, always surprising, sometimes touching.
This was the first of Pavement's 3 classic albums (along with the less erratic Crooked Rain and Wowee Zowee) and is a must-buy. 'Trigger Cut/Wounded-Kite at :17' is still a great pop song, while 'Here' is truly beautiful. Packed in with the original album are a collection of Peel Sessions, live tracks and b-sides - the cream of which has to be 'Secret Knowledge of Backroads', a sparse and surprisingly touching song.
Worth going back to.
