It’s exactly what a Pavement retrospective should be - a heavily slanted, palpably enchanted slab of richly flawed anarcho-pop. Whether or not you agree entirely with the final selection, every track here is skewered on the band’s jagged refusal to bore; the same rickety backbone that makes each of their full studio albums to date such a valued companion for fans of angular, slippery, fiercely organic racket-making everywhere. »

'quarantine the past - the best of pavement' is a fully remastered 23 track compilation. the tracks span the entirety of pavement's career from 1989 to 1999, from the scratchy and mysterious sounds of their early vinyl-only releases to the rich, multilayered warmth of their final recordings. although the compilation does not include any unreleased material, it definitely goes deeper than the 'hits.'
