Rezension

Das Solo-Album des Pavement-Sängers, die es wohl mittlerweile nicht mehr gibt. Viel geändert hat sich nicht, denn laut Malkmus habe er versucht, etwas völlig anderes zu machen, aber es sei ein Pavement Album dabei rausgekommen.

Review

“How do you encore the career of unadorned rock genius? Well, first you pray... and then you pull out the bag of tricks that got you there in the first place. If nothing else, Stephen Malkmusþ solo debut proves Pavement fansþ claims to his guitar-hero status - John Fogerty meets Thurston Moore division. It also speaks volumes toward his supreme mastery of a distinctive school of languid and sardonic rock-pop songwriting that much of alt-dom adopted in Pavementþs wake. What Stephen Malkmus does not transfer from his previous bandþs mythic arsenal are the quirks, endearing "mistakes" and sense of wonder. With the muscular and whole-heartedly "professional" backing of the Jicks, Malkmus rolls out another bunch of great numbers that wouldnþt have seemed out of place on Terror Twilight or Brighten The Corners. The best of these - the frail, melancholy "Church On White" and the southern-boogie pirate tale "The Hook" - shame most working songwriters. But for the converted, they may seem like sublime epilogues to a story largely told.” (CMJ)
