iTunes Review

On their early singles, Pavement was composed of two recent college grads hanging out in suburban California recording willfully obscure art-damaged ditties at local hippie percussionist Gary Young's ill-equipped studio Louder Than You. 1989's debut single "Slay Tracks" was really good but seemed a tad insular and precious, the fancy wordplay the result of smartypants with too much time on their hands. Over a few years, singer-songwriter Stephen Malkmus' songs got more confident, Scott Kannberg's pyrotechnic guitar effects became more twisted, and Young's sound grew clearer, until the majestic Slanted & Enchanted dropped in 1992. This album boldly channeled the most cathartic elements of indie-rock's then-canon: Velvets, Fall, Swell Maps, B.A.L.L., Tall Dwarfs, etc.-all of it reconfigured into a fractured mess that's very catchy and often dazzling. We dare you not to hum along to "Here" and "Summer Babe"!

Customer Reviews


This album is one of the greatest albums of all time. Pavement is the best band of the nineties. If you don't buy this whole album, don't bother ever listening to music again.

One of my favorites

This cd is perfect from Summer Babe to our singer. The highlights are Summer babe In The mouth A Desert, Conduit for sale! , here , two states and fame throwa. But you should get the whole thing. the only song that is below perfect is No life Singed Her. You should also get the watery, Domestic EP from the deluxe edition (Texas never Whispers - Shoot the singer) this album is a master piece.

Unlike anything of Its Time

Bought this album a week before seeing them on this tour. Was not initially impressed with the stoner-drag of its tempo, but completely changed my mind after seeing them do this album live. It proceeded to grow on me in a big way since. Revolutionary in its style and attitude, Slanted is one for the ages. Still listen to it regularly 16 years after its release. A very special piece of work.

Years Active: '80s, '90s

With their fractured songs, unexpected blasts of feedback, laconic vocals, cryptic literate lyrics, and defiant low-fidelity, Pavement were one of the most influential and distinctive bands to emerge from the American underground in the '90s. Pavement, along with Sebadoh, were the leaders of the lo-fi movement that dominated U.S. indie rock in the early '90s. Initially conceived as a studio project between guitarists/vocalists Stephen Malkmus and Scott Kannberg in the '80s, Pavement gradually became...
