It's good, but it's just hard for me to really like it since I've never really been in the right headspace to get what's going on here. I can completely see how this album could be a favorite for so many, but it just doesn't click for me :/

A good record but certainly not in the same class as the first three albums. Shady lane, is a Pavement classic, and there are some of the good tracks too, but, brighten the corners, doesn't quite have that freshness and edge that their earlier releases had. Still, it is Pavement, just not their best.

Good, but not as great as the first three. Still worthwhile...

For me each album Pavement released was a little bit of a drop in standard from the one that preceded it. That's not to say this isn't still a very good album it just suffers in my eyes in comparison to it's older siblings. The songwriting is still quality, the lyrics still hit the mark but with each album Pavement got a little closer to being a 'normal' indie rock band rather than the glorious chaotic musical magicians they were. On the plus side Spiral Stairs offers up his best Pavement songs in Passat Dreams and Date with Ikea.

I've heard in several places the Crooked Rain, Crooked rain is the most accessible Pavement album. However, after 3 listens, to my ears this seems to be the easiest to grasp. Really enjoying it so far, seems to be their most focused album. I'm falling in love with this band...too bad it's 2012

First two songs, Old to Begin and last five songs are fantastic.. The rest is not quite on the same level but good enough so it doesn't significantly lower my opinion of the album... Which is currently actually my favourite of Pavement (+ 'Fin' is - at the moment - my favourite song of theirs).
