This is a debut album?! MY GOD?! Definitely deserving of being at the pinnacle of the 1990s!

Love Here, and In A Mouth A Desert is good, and there are some other great points on this album, but overall, not amazing.

One of the most stunning debut albums ever. Slanted and enchanted, has a perfected sloppiness about it, a talent that Pavement would master over the years. It so fresh, it sounds like it was all made up on the spot, it has a real spontaneous feel to it. Stephen Malmus' nonsensical lyrics are great and there are excellent songs here; Zurich is stained, here, perfume-v, and, trigger cut, are all superb. Slanted and enchanted, is the first of a handful of great records from one of America's best ever band's.

Nonchalant and at times blissful. Some of the tracks are a bit sloppy as you can kinda feel Pavement trying to hit that sweet spot between their off-kilter stylings and the head-nodding riffs. Great tracks like "Summer Babe", "Trigger Cut", "In the Mouth a Desert", and "Here", and even the decent ones are delivered confidently enough for you to get into it. Not as good as Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain in my opinion, but still a good record.

Lo-fi classic. Best Pavement album, and one of the best of the 90's.

Nice drums here. Great surprise. I've been avoiding this band for years.

The dirtiest, smuggest, indie-est lo-fi-iest the 90s could offer.

While its lo-fi sound may not appeal to everyone, Slanted & Enchanted has some great and catchy tunes here that can get stuck in your head after listening to them for a while
