Pavement

They've become one of my favorite bands and I think they're amazing songwriters. Opinions on the band?

I heart Pavement.

Stephen Malkmus' solo stuff ain't bad either.

I used to really like them, but recently I've gone off them a bit.
They write cool songs though.

I like Pavement, but sometimes listening to them for too long starts to... not so much bore me, but tax me. It's so lo-fi. Fantastic songwriting, but I have to admit my un-indie love for good production.

One of my favorite bands ever. Unlike most people, I like Slanted and Enchanted a helluva lot more than Crooked Rain Crooked Rain. Slanted and Enchanted is great pop/rock/indie, and Crooked Rain is like Weezer with a smirk, and Weezer just doesnt work with a smirk!

I also prefer Slanted & Enchanted. Summer babe and Trigger Cut are ingenious songs.

He is just being a bitch because I don't like the Saw series, and talk about it in every Saw thread, and apparently it annoys him...

the first Saw was actually quite good. The second one not so much. It's aquired taste, really.


As for Pavement... I've been digging them a lot lately. Crooked....is a great record.

I thought Saw 1 was watchable, but the ******s that I know (and the ******s here, believe it or not) that worship the steaming pile of below-par Hollywood crap as the greatest 'horror' movie to hit the planet, really ruined it (more). As if that weren't enough, Saw 2 came along (which didn't need any ruining, although that didn't stop anyone from trying to do just that) and pushed my hatred to the limits that I didn't know existed.

(Vote for me: Best Alt/Indie Regula [when does that come around again?])

I hope the Reissue is as cheap as the others. SE and CRCR double discs (48 tracks) for $15 bucks each. I probably won't get the reissue if it isn't the same price.
