Stop trying to make this Pavement - Weezer connection fit please, sir! Pavement made music based around dissonant melodic structures and cryptic/nonsensical spoke-sung vocals. Weezer was pretty much pure pop. Just because they wrote short songs doesn't mean anything...bands have been doing that as long as songs have existed. Weezer is self-consciously geeky, while Pavement is, practically, founded on being free of self-consciousness of any kind.

Whatever Ben, you know my need to belittle Weezer is irrational.

Pavement was a great band, probably in my top 5 favorite bands of all time. I've really enjoyed Malkmus' new album with the Jicks, Real Emotional Trash. It's got that Pavement feel and even vibes the same. I didn't feel that with his other albums, but this one is pretty catchy. Nothing beats the sounds of Pavement though.

Upon completion of listening to the album, the first though that came to my mind actaully was ‘wow that was epic’, because to me it was, especially coming from a band that I expected to produce nothing more than your typical indie rock. I suppose it was because I had very low expectations that I was so surprised, as I had never even listened to any Built To Spill before. Usually albums that have loads of really long songs annoy me, because I never usually have the patience to listen to them all the way through, but with this albums, I didn’t mind at all, the length simply added to the overall climax of each song. Favorite song would probably be either Velvet Waltz, or Untrustable Part 2 (About Someone Else). Overall I would say that although its probably not an album I would listen to all the time, it definitely is a solid album.


yup

im halfway thru, and so far a few things have come to me. this album seems to be a more scratchy, edgy album compared to the others they have released. i love how the guitars kinda drone in and out of crazy distortion and what not, its polished but rugged at the same time. more to come when i be finished.

I like how everything landscapes and seems to intertwine, plus I'm astounded by their transition from there's nothing wrong with love.
