Following 1994’s milestone ‘Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain’ album, Pavement were at a crucial point in their career. They became music snobs’ favorite new band thanks to the fractured art-rock and lyrical/musical discord of their 1992 debut album, ‘Slanted and Enchanted.’ But then they surprised everyone with a set of songs with super-catchy melodies that, gulp, sounded an awful lot like pop music on ‘Crooked Rain.’ They countered that a year later when they made ‘Wowee Zowee,’ their most messed-up and demanding album.

But ‘Slanted’’s follow-up, ‘Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain,’ is the better album, a tuneful exercise in noise-rock restraint and myth crumbling.
