My uncle is the craziest Pavement fan I will probably ever meet. I remember when I was 13 and quite vividly him showing me Silver Jews just to get an idea of how mind altering and earth shattering Pavement was. Five years later and I still (basically) say to this day: "RAWR XD SILVER JEWS>PAVEMENT MAJOR UWU"

He hasn't texted me in over a year.
The end.

It's a classic for a reason, but you'll never find me listening to this on my own free will.

The day I like 'Christy' is the day this album jumps to a 100. Something about her voice and lyrics just creates these environments in my head. Like a mix of modern and the 1950s. Maybe a few moments I've gone through myself. "New music for an old soul" is one way to word it? I dunno. I highly recommend giving this one a spin!

I remember my uncle giving me a 32GB USB stick full of albums for my thirteenth birthday and this album being a highlight for me. Even to this day I love this band to death. One of these days I'm going to find this on vinyl and play it start to finish at 2 in the morning. "Mysterons" is a fat mood for me.

I honestly think his demos feel more lively and organic than any of his finished releases. It's hard to like Onfroy's lyricism period and that's no exception here. I do enjoy Kanye's feature and the first 4 tracks in terms of beats. Other than that this does feel like a cash grab and I hope this isn't a running theme for the next few years. That AllMusic liner has a point though.

(Its his best because he doesn't have a set of instructions)

About
I'm that one guy that knows the people you actually adore on this website. I really enjoy gardening so if you ever need pointers just hmu (see why you haven't heard of me hahahaha) These scores are mostly personal than critical so don't expect that with me too much.
If you have a recommendation just drop it in my shout box and I'll listen to it! I always keep my promises! :D
