Your Review
When I truly think of indie rock this is the first thing that pops into my mind. Pavement are one of those few bands till this day I still love listening too and this is hands down my favourite album of theirs. They are truly great catchy and emotional song-writing on here. For me there is no single dud songs on here.

Fav songs: Silence kid, Cut your hair, range life and Hit the plane down.
Another one of my once iconic albums gradually fading out of my mind. First 4 tracks and "Range Life" are still legendary, though.
This record is just as diverse as “Slanted & Enchanted” (1992), meaning that it has something for just about everybody. The tracks here do sound more refined than their debut but don’t pack as much of a punch, but the important thing that this record shows is that Pavement, even though by refining their sound, still stay true to their core.
A fun example of what indie rock in the 90s could be; a fun but strong composition of tracks.

Favorite track: Cut Your Hair
