different albums, both excellent, one tinny, and one countryish.... One over-hyped snipe at a bald idiot.
tough call. i think maybe 'loretta's scars' swings it for me though...
Slanted>>>>Brighten the Corners>>>>Crooked Rain>>>>Terror Twilight>>>>Westing
I don't see it myself. i suppose I've never really given that record the time it perhaps deserves.
seeing as we're ranking the albums:
1.Brighten the Corners
Watery Domestic is the greatest musical release of all time.
Its the only 100% perfect release i can think of.
but it's like asking which is better:
1)winning the lottery then sleeping with a string of gorgeous women (or men)
2)sleeping with a string of gorgeous women (or men) then winning the lottery
then being given a delicious chocolate cake.
and a puppy.
conclusion: pavement - pretty ace.
all this hate for Westing!
i prefer those early EPs, they seem more personal... like you almost weren't supposed to hear em. it's just some guys with Swell Maps and Clean records having a bit of fun; they barely seem like a real band. all of their LPs sound a little too self-conscious in comparison.
it's a good record for exactly the reasons you say. But however much fun it is the songs on the later albums are generally better.
to each his own. the only record i've not heard is Terror Twilight but i just prefer those early songs myself...
i don't think of it as an album, but the sound and the songs on there i just prefer to any of the actual LPs. they're a 7" band though, for me.
