Which one next, do you think?
and I'd have to agree.
Thereafter, most people seem to prefer Brighten The Corners next before Terror Twilight. However, one advantage TT has over BTC is no terrible Spiral Stairs songs.
Congratulations on exploring such an amazing band though.
Pavement's best release in my opinion is the Watery Domestic EP. Probably the easiest way to get hold is on the special version of "SandE".
over a year or so ago, I just got sidetracked before I got into them properly. I don't know what I like better, the lush sounds like Here, Grounded and In the Mouth a Desert or the mental ones like Serpentine Pad, Half a Canyon, Chesley's Little Wrists and Dancing With the Elders. Hmm.
I can't stand it personally.
Falling Away is probably the best post - Pavement release.
It has Stereo, Shady Lane, Type Slowly and Embassy Row on.
Not enough spare material or something.
Anyhoo, BTC has some classics but isnt a great album. TT is much under-rated and sits together brilliantly and ends on a lovely positive note - unlike nearly every other album ever.
I heard that this one had the most unreleased material. I think Malkmus said that a while back.
But cant help buying them. Malk always had a very good qality control sensibility and the albums sound worse with a load of chaff around them.
I've never heard Crooked Rain. Feels like i've commited a crime.
it's awesome - and would probably be my favourite, if it were not for Crooked Rain. Terror Twilight is pretty good too. Mmm, Cream Of Gold...
are wonderful albums.
You should just get all of them, and definitely Westing.
Run, don't walk.
