Spiderland by Slint is post-rock ground zero. It was the band’s second and final album, but it’s THE ONE when it comes to defining a sub-genre. The band featured Brian McMahan who went on to play with Will Oldham and then form The For Carnation, and David Pajo who has done many good things since such as Ariel M, Papa M as well as being in Tortoise for a bit. He was also a member of Billy Corgan’s Zwan. If you buy this on CD, be prepared to be told off. It clearly states on the back that this is meant to be listened to on vinyl. However, both are available.

Fact! This is one of the greatest albums ever made.
10/10 Guy Norton Customer review, 7th June 2014
Spiderland has topography. Not some random collusion of tectonic upheaval and weathering, but an act of omnipotent prime-movery. Unequalled. Never to be equalled.
9/10 Jonathan Customer review, 4th June 2014
Spiderland is a fabulous album - it sounds so 'complete', assured. Creepy whispered and screamed vocals, off-kilter guitar lines build a real atmosphere. I'd give it a higher rating - 10/10 - if I didn't think, in moments of doubt, that it doesn't remind me a little too much of an American early-90s attempt to make Chairs Missing. But I guess that in itself is the highest praise anyway.

Fact. This is the greatest album ever made. Fact. Nobody realised it at the time. Fact. Based on the above, everybody is stupid.

I agree, it is one of the best records from the past 50+ years…
