I stuck Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain on for the first time in ages the other day and instantly berated myself for the fact. This used to be a constant play in our house but I'm not sure that L was that impressed, she has commented on Malkmus voice being irritating more than once, so there are some similarities with the Fall. I'm not sure why or come to think of it when I stopped playing this album as much but sometimes you do need a bit of a break from something to realise just how bloody marvelous it was in the first place. I think that Fillmore Jive would be in my top 5 Pavement songs. The thing I love about it is that it seems that it is all going to fall apart a few times but just when you think disaster is going to strike the band pull it back from the brink. It is also when I come to think of it quite a bit longer than most Pavement songs clocking in at 6.39.
