Got to love an album that starts off with a line like "There is no castration fear"

Great album, although admittedly not all 18 tracks are as great as "We Dance"

There's a lot of filler on this album, but the songs that are good are some of the best songs pavement recorded. Rattled by the Rush, Grounded, At&t, Kennel District are some of the best songs ever in my opinion. Grave Architecture, Black Out, Father to a Sister of a Thought and more are also pretty good. But then you also have songs like Expedition and Serpentine Pad that bring it down a little. Still a very good album though, would recommend.

Ok album. Best 10 songs average is 80,2/100 and the album can get ok 80/100. Bit too experimantal for me. Best song is "Father To A Sister Of Thought" good 85/100. All other songs ok to below-average.

Instant classic.

Pavement's peak in a non-rigid, chaotic sea of great LPs.

Wowee zowee, is Pavement's masterpiece. It's an epic record, Stephen Malkmus' white album. Great songs here; rattled by the rush, serpentine pad, and, best friend's arm, are just three of the many wonderful songs on this LP. Slanted and enchanted, is probably most people's choice as best Pavement record, but for me, it's this one. Casual genius.

Pavement's best. The songs are fuller and more melodic here, yet the overall atmosphere is one of starkness. I've got this one down as top 10, maybe top 5 of the decade. America's answer to Sticky Fingers.

The Pavement album you have to work at...stick with it though and you'll be rewarded. Make no mistake this is a very very good record, very mellow with a few shouty numbers thrown in to keep you on your toes. Great stuff
