Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. By drawing on so many different influences, Pavement discovered its own distinctive voice as a band on Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, creating a vibrant, dynamic, emotionally resonant album that stands as a touchstone of underground rock in the '90s and one of the great albums of its decade.

Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain" is a non stop album of great songs. From start to finish, every song on it is great and different. Though a great 90s band such as Nirvana or Dinosaur Jr can release great albums, it takes just a bit more to create what Pavement create. While every song on the album is great, there are also no repeats. Every song has it's own flavour and each one is wonderful. Though every song is really good, the first three tracks open the album incredibly and "Filmore Jive" is an amazing way to close the album.

Happy birthday to Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain, Pavement’s most beloved, most surprising, most perfect album. Even devout Pavement fans were caught off guard by the lush weirdness of it - so devoid of feedback, so not lo-fi, so rock & roll, openly aspiring to pastoral beauty and lyricism and hippie shit like that. Suddenly these art-punk jokers turned into a real band, gushing with almost insultingly gorgeous melodies

Overall Impression - 10 Crooked Rain Crooked Rain is responsible for me branching out of the mainstream scene to see what else there was in the world of music. It is defiantly in my list of top ten albums. It should be hailed as big as Nirvana's Nevermind in the sense that it was something fresh and very inspirational. Crooked Rain Crooked Rain is an album that you listen to then go out and try and start a band. It's very inspiring in all natures. I adore this album with all my heart

Talk about Pavement - Crooked Rain Crooked Rain

My copy is identical to this one, including the tannish-green labels and no bar code, but the matrix/runout also includes the Big Cat UK identifiers, lightly scratched out. Side A, etched: ABB 56 A2 MPO / Side B, etched: ABB 56 B2 DROP D TO INFINITY MPO. Is this the case for all of them?
Thanks. (You just know there's some dude who worked at the pressing plant 25 years ago who could explain this.)
My copy isn't like that, just has the matrix number listed here. Sounds pretty odd
