Heard it yet Laz? Got a 7.0 from the 'fork. I'll be checking it out, quite enjoyed Mirror Traffic without ever loving it. Aside from Senator, none of the tracks stuck in my mind.

Me and Peefork rarely agree on THE MALK! For instance, they rated Real Emotional Trash really low because of the psychedelia and jamming and that's why it's my favorite of his. Was a little cool on Mirror Traffic, which I imagine this is going to resemble more.

It sounds a lot like Mirror Traffic.

It does sound like a logical continuation of Mirror Traffic. I like it.

Alright, given Wowee Zowee a couple of spins. It starts off so well, We Dance, Rattled By The Rush and Black Out are all great songs, and I'd already heard Grounded, which is my fav Pavement song. It starts to meander a bit thereafter for me, a lot of more experimental, ramshackle passages, longer periods featuring just instrumentation, less clear vocals from Malkmus.

...and?

You didn't really conclude your thoughts. Supposedly the track order was totally random. Not sure I buy that story as We Dance seems like a perfect opener but then Western Homes is a majorly weak-ass closer.

Kennel District is a great standout, just a perfect catchy tune. Second half also has the brilliant AT&T, Fight This Generation, etc.

Decided to listen to Wowee Zowee right away because of these songs alone

Which means Wig out will have to wait

I didn't say that at all. Definitely some good tunes on the second half, namely the ones you mentioned.

I prefer the more... affecting side of Pavement (lack of a better word there). My fav of their tunes are the ones that make me feel something, so Elevate Me Later, Cut Your Hair, Gold Soundz, Range Life, Fillmore Jive, Frontwards, Shady Lane, Here, Grounded, Box Elder. I didn't find a lot of that on Wowee Zowee.

Wowee Zowee is my second favorite Pavement album. I love the ramshackle nature of it all (it suits their sound incredibly well) and about a third of the album is astonishing, as good as anything they've ever done.

My favorite is Crooked Rain, which is a well-oiled indie rock machine; outside of a couple bumps in the road, it's perfect. One of the best albums of the genre/scene.

I like all of these tracks as well, particularly Kennel District.

 
That said, Wowee Zowee is my least favorite Pavement album by a large margin. Cobz n I r twinz!

Watch Malkmus use the word "demarcation" when talking about mustard

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks - Over/Under - YouTube

Is this where I'm supposed to talk about Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks?

Just about finished with my first listen to Wig Out at Jagbags and I enjoy it, but am I imagining thing, or did they used to rock just a little bit harder?

Favorite tracks: "J Smoov" and "Chartjunk"
