Quarantine The Past: The Best Of Pavement by Pavement

The Best of Pavement. Their is perhaps no greater accolade in music. From the early, scratchy Debris Slide through to the alternative hits Stereo and Cut Your Hair it's all here in its slacker-rock glory from he only band on the planet who could name a song Wounded-Kite At :17 and have it be the most melodically beautiful thing you heard all year. If you want to make a start on Pavement then buy this. If you want a nostalgic flip through those glory years then buy this.

Oh joyous day... Everyone knew it was only a matter of time before Pavement reformed to show the world who is best... That's right, best I said. Back in the 90's Pavement we're the band for me. I liked Nirvana, Mudhoney, Sonic Youth etc. but it was Pavement that spoke loudest. When pre-ordering Pavement records at my local record store the owner would rip the piss out of me because 'he can't sing'. 'He can sing!' I said... 'Malkmus is fucking king' I would shout as I ran from the shop, Brighten the Corners in hand. When Wowee Zowee came out I took three days off school to smoke it up and get familiar... Some of the best days of my existence. When I saw them play Manchester as part of their final tour I spent the majority of the time crying with joy, I don't remember being happier. One of the most distinctive and influential bands of the 90s, Pavement accompany their mega world tour with a 23 track Best Of, compiled by the band and featuring a host of classic and obscure tracks. 'Quarantine The Past' is an excellent starting point for new comers to the Pavement sound and a delight for those already familiar. The remasters sound unbelievable. I imagine Malkmus singing these songs wearing a crown.
