Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 199/500!
Celebrate 30 years of Pavement's debut full-length, Slanted And Enchanted, which was first released in 1992 via Matador Records. It remains a truly monumental album - one that defined/ruined a generation and a genre, depending on who you ask.
Pavement were the quintessential American independent rock band, and this is the quintessential indie-rock album. The playing is loose-limbed, the production laid-back and primitive, the lyrics quirky and playful, the melodies sweet and seductive. But the sound is as intense as the white noise of the Velvet Underground, even as songs like 'Summer Babe' reflect singer-guitarist Stephen Malkmus' love of Seventies AM pop. Slanted and Enchanted is one of the most influential rock albums of the 1990s; its fuzzy recording style can be heard in the music of Nirvana, Liz Phair, Beck, the Strokes, and the White Stripes.
