Album Review

If you want to know how good Stephen Malkmus is, listen to the A-side, an affectingly ironic portrait of a May-December romance between a burnt-out guitarist and a starry-eyed coed that sounds deeper because of his off-hand, tossed-off delivery. And if you want to know why he broke up the band, check out the three B-sides, all covers, all recorded live in Germany in February of 2001.
