This was the Pavement I liked. A sloppy sprawling lo-fi charm fest taking heavy influence from the Velvet Underground and the Fall but stumbling blinking in the sun with classic melodies glinting through the fuzzy production and madcap drumming. On top of that add Malkmus wordplay and you get an eternal classic.

10/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 8th October 2014

This is Pavement's best, or second best album depending on my mood - the other being its more Pavementy follow-up "Crooked Rain Crooked Rain". If there are any negative points with this album then I guess I would point out that musically, they ripped of The Fall a bit, which was not the case with the follow-up. On first listen, this blew my mind. Stephen Malkmus is arguably the greatest lyricist ever and some of his best work is on this album. "Summer Babe", the album's opener is as sublime and ramshackle as Pavement get and pretty much lets you know what you're in for as soon as you're through the front door. (the sound also spawned some low-quality copyists i.e. Sammy). "Trigger Cut" is their first great pop song. "Zurich is Stained" highlights the band's off-kilter, just-holding-it-together sound perfectly and the highlight of highlights is "Here". Lo-fi perfection. It is worth trying to get hold of the expanded Luxe and Redux edition as it contains the fantastic "Watery, Domestic" e.p. bonkers, improvised Peel Sessions and a classic live set.
