I knew things were bad when they had a song called "Folk Jam"

"Carrot Rope" is awesome!

That b-side from Carrot Rope about harnesses is good.

Harness Your Hopes is sweet, true. It does not make up for Folk Jam.

you mean the 1st SM solo album?

yeah, my least fave of the pavement catalog. easily.

edde (edde), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 13:55 (fifteen years ago) link

i bought slanted & enchanted when it came out and really dug it and then proceeded to ignore every album after that until my brother told me how great terror twilight was so i bought it and thought it was so good that i went out and bought all the albums i had missed. that's how good i thought it was!

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 13:56 (fifteen years ago) link

"thought"?

bernard snow (sixteen sergeants), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 13:57 (fifteen years ago) link

er, i haven't listened to it in a while. i'm sure it's still good.

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 13:58 (fifteen years ago) link

thought rhymes with bought. contributes a nice poetic symmetry to his post

Charlie Howard (the sphinx), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 13:59 (fifteen years ago) link

okay, I just wanted to make sure you hadn't disregarded it as youthful folly or anything (because it's not; there are some seriously great songs on that album)

bernard snow (sixteen sergeants), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:00 (fifteen years ago) link

i liked it so much that i even went out and bought a double seven inch with echo & the bunnymen and fall covers on it. that's how much i liked it!

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:00 (fifteen years ago) link

Those covers are great, true, but you are going to have to make a spirited defense (that we can all shoot holes through) of this record.

Mr. Que (Mr.Que), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:03 (fifteen years ago) link

just scrolled the tracklist and was reminded that 'ann don't cry' was on the record. a tender song, without the usual dose of malkmus cynicism. an interesting development at such a point in the band's career.

Charlie Howard (the sphinx), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:06 (fifteen years ago) link

"but you are going to have to make a spirited defense (that we can all shoot holes through) of this record."

it rocks!

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:08 (fifteen years ago) link

The CD rom for this album was pretty shitty wasn't it? I honestly can't remember what happened in it, lots of swirly colours and shit I think.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:08 (fifteen years ago) link

Is Malkmus a cynic? I never thought so. A cynic is really a romantic anyway.

Like Scott, I was really excited about the album, bought the "Major Leagues" single for the Echo cover, loved both. Not sure about the Echo cover now.

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn (Alfred Soto), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:09 (fifteen years ago) link

what's not to like? it's a highly enjoyable album. i could only listen to that first malkmus solo album once, but terror twilight i have listened to at least...hmmm...20 times.

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:10 (fifteen years ago) link

Mr. Que (Mr.Que), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:10 (fifteen years ago) link

it does too! well, in a Pavement way it does, but still...there are cool guitars all over it.

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:11 (fifteen years ago) link

It's better than BTC but the production is gawdawful. The live show I saw of malkmus at Mr. T's Bowl in LA playing the whole record to a groovebox = 10000000000000x better. Hearing the record was a total disappointment after that show.

Steve Shasta (Steve Shasta), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:11 (fifteen years ago) link

Only Pavement album I care for, Malkmus sounds 'soulful' on it.

Billy Dods (Billy Dods), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:12 (fifteen years ago) link

don't even get me started on that first preston school of whatever album. oof, what a dog. but pavement went out on a high note if you ask me.

It is not better than BTC either. That's just nuts.

Mr. Que (Mr.Que), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:15 (fifteen years ago) link

scott the first malkmus solo is excellent, please change your position on that one

"major leagues" though, yeah, that one is also excellent - I wonder if a whole album of Wistful Steve would work

Thomas Tallis (Tommy), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:18 (fifteen years ago) link

We've had this argument about 8,000,000 times, it seems.

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn (Alfred Soto), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:20 (fifteen years ago) link

we still have the malkmus album on vinyl. maria bought it. i should listen again after all this time.

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:20 (fifteen years ago) link

I really liked it as the last chapter of Pavement, even before I knew they were breaking up. As my favourite band, it just felt like they were at peace -- a warmth hinted by Brighten The Corners that finally came through here -- and I thought that was very contagious. Maybe it wasn't as *challenging* as the other records, but at that point, I think that's precisely what I appreciated about it, perhaps in the same way I like Loaded even though it's not the quitessential VU album.

BTC is still my favourite one, but the fact that TT wasn't as overly clever kinda made it refreshing and a perfect 1-2 goodbye punch.

Charlie Howard (the sphinx), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:30 (fifteen years ago) link

I love TT and I can't understand the unbridled hatred towards it. Sure, it's Pavement's Prog (as opposed to Punk) album, but they do it very well. Major Leagues is lovely, Carrot Rope is fun, The Hexx is their most ambitious piece of work, Folk Jam really isn't a Folk Jam at all. Also "The lion reaps his own reward/Serengetti nightmare for the eco-tour" is brilliant. So shush.

Pig Lib is awesome too.

And American Water is awful.

wogan lenin (dog latin), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 14:35 (fifteen years ago) link

American Water is great, but... I feel it is a bit dismissive to consider it as a Pavement album.

People don't like it because (I'm guessing the conventional wisdom here or speaking for myself) the tempos are dull and plodding the drumming is awful and it just sounds flat and devoid of any kind of energy or enthusiasm that the first three records had. Pavement were good at being a fake punk band (Serpentine Pad) country band (Range Life) and noise band (Fork Lift, Chelsey's Little Wrists) but they sound better when their prog is more Fillmore Jive than TT. They also sound better when it sounds like they are having fun, and this album--great lyrics aside--does not sound like they are having fun. It sounds like work.

Mr. Que (Mr.Que), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 16:03 (fifteen years ago) link

funny stuff, keep it up ilm!

hstencil (hstencil), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 16:07 (fifteen years ago) link

Major Leagues, Spit On A Stranger, Folk Jam, Carrot Rope, Anne Don't Cry are all great. The Hexx is good too, although I'd be intrigued to hear the live riffmungous version of legend.
Stuff like Cream of Gold is pretty turgid though and Nigel Godritch's production, while nicely layered, is a little too clean for Pavement.
But it does have a nice swansong quality to it. Carrot Rope is simultaneously silly and elegiac - there's a slightly wistful drift to the slower sections - making it an ideal way to close the lid on the band.

Stew (stew s), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 16:24 (fifteen years ago) link

scott seward (scott seward), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 16:28 (fifteen years ago) link

The "riffamongeous" version of the Hexx can be found on the b side of the Spit on a Stranger EP I believe. It's called "And Then."

Mr. Que (Mr.Que), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 16:36 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah that was the earlier version. i like both versions tho.

hstencil (hstencil), Tuesday, 12 September 2006 16:39 (fifteen years ago) link

it feels like such an odd mismatch of band/producer i just wonder if it would've worked any better with a different producer

or NO producer, as they had on every previous album

lold jamar (lpz), Tuesday, 8 July 2014 04:57 (seven years ago) link

i was trading tapes of Pavement shows back then and The Hexx seemed to be an absolute beast when they were playing it live ahead of the release of TT. it got neutered in the studio, tho.

just listened to this album for the first time in, i don't know, a dozen years? it might actually be worse than i remember. little bits of good here and there, but mostly pretty forgettable.

alpine static, Tuesday, 8 July 2014 07:02 (seven years ago) link

I was disappointed by TT when it came out but I really like it now. "brighten the corners" otoh hasn't aged well. I loved it when it came out but it sounds so sluggish now.

it's weird how from Wowee Zowee on Malkie wrote so many ballads in the same plodding time signature/rhythm - I like a lot of them but really they all sound like variations on the same song

global tetrahedron, Monday, 10 November 2014 19:25 (seven years ago) link

After slowly (!) making my way through many of Malkmus' solo albums, I'm amazed how much he improved after BTC/TT which were the nadir of Pavement. I was on a road trip and listened to WZ->American Water->Stephen Malkmus and it made a bit more sense.

Pretty intense:
http://musees.angers.fr/collections/oeuvres-choisies/musee-jean-lurcat-et-de-la-tapisserie-contemporaine/jean-lurcat-la-grande-menace/index.html

(via Google Translate:)

The "great threat" is the nuclear danger embodied by an eagle spreading its wings over the Earth. This one drops a bomb on our planet, symbolized by a circle on which one can recognize big capitals (bell-towers of Moscow, Eiffel Tower of Paris, skyscrapers of New York, pyramids of Cairo, pagoda of Beijing, temple ancient Athens or Rome). Through the flames of an explosion, one can read "HIROSHIMA". Under the Earth, a volcano is erupting. Jean Lurçat materializes here the idea that "the world lives on a volcano".
On the right, a man at the rudder of a boat moves away from the threat by carrying various animal species. Most are in grisaille. They are contaminated by the buffalo that spreads flames, symbols of atomic fallout.
However, a note of hope is emerging. Three animals stand out and seem to take care of the destiny of the man and his boat: the dog, the owl and the rooster, respectively symbols of loyalty, wisdom and hope. At the front of the boat, a vine takes root and seems to indicate that life is reborn.

With this vessel gathering the various species of creation, Lurçat resorts here to a biblical reference, the episode of the Flood and the ark of Noah in Genesis. Steeped in Judeo-Christian culture, he is inspired by it in his creation.
We also discover here the richness of his bestiary.

two weeks pass...

Sometimes I get in the mode of listening to “The Hexx” and the two versions of “And Then...” (its predecessor song), over and over. The studio take of “And Then” seems like the first time Malkmus is taking the band through the song (announcing the changes, etc.); and he’s basically singing “dummy lyrics.” The lyrics of the live take are more fleshed-out, but still pretty random and provisional-seeming.

By the time the song was reworked for “The Hexx,” however, Malkmus had written ornate and highly developed lyrics for the verses that were different from most his others (http://songmeanings.com/songs/view/43974/). It’s the only Pavement song where the lyrics don’t scan well for me; they feel belabored, like the song trips over them. (It also seems like a series of elaborate non-sequitors to me; but others seem to find “meaning” in the song.)

Maybe “The Hexx” was just overworked? I like what they did to it musically – it’s cool how the chorus comes just once, early in the song; and the vibe is unique – but I’m not sure it’s necessarily an “improvement” over the “And Then...” template.

Let's just say... it's a Terror Twilight evening for me.

I've said it here and elsewhere: this is nowhere near my favorite Pavement record, and arguments about its place in the discographies are always a bummer.

BUT

It has some very strong and satisfying component parts that, when they're on, kick my ass. The 3-4 songs that (imo) don't work, or just feel too un-Pavement wind up overshadowing the rest, sadly.

Legalize Suburban Benches (Raymond Cummings), Thursday, 13 January 2022 00:43 (one week ago) link

Maybe not "un-Pavement" - maybe they just don't quite resonate for me or something. That's songs like "Ann Don't Cry," "Billie," "Major Leagues." (Brighten The Corners has a couple songs like this too.)

Legalize Suburban Benches (Raymond Cummings), Thursday, 13 January 2022 00:44 (one week ago) link

Glad the reissue is finally happening; I love this album. It was the first Pavement I heard, at age 13 when it came out. It was this blurb review in Time magazine that piqued my interest:

Listening to this avant-rock band's new album is like arriving late to a mystery movie. You wonder, "Have I missed something?" In the case of Terror Twilight, you haven't. About a third of the songs on this album lack musical coherence, substituting aimless dissonance and artless artiness for melody and emotion. On a few tracks, however, Pavement lives up to its cerebral reputation; these boast a smart mix of studied elegance and ethereal sweetness. Still, this is a band that needs to replace indulgence with consistency.
--By Christopher John Farley

I was starting to get into "the hard stuff" around this time, so "avant-rock," "artless artiness" and "aimless dissonance" sounded promising to me. When I finally checked the album out at a record store listening station I was very surprised to find that it was by and large mellow, pretty, and conventionally melodic, with only the occasional measured diversion into noisy weirdness (e.g. the deliberately ugly chorus of "Billie"). At any rate, I loved it and bought it and got really deep into Pavement shortly thereafter. I still think Terror Twilight is a better album than Brighten the Corners, though BTC has the higher highs.

In retrospect this whole episode taught me to read album reviews with a great deal of skepticism and to trust my own ears more. So thanks, Christopher John Farley, for missing the mark on Terror Twilight!

This reminds me a bit of the Rolling Stone review for Wowee Zowee. The writer was like the father of a misbehaving child - “I’m not angry, and just really disappointed” - and that bristling exasperation made me curious enough to buy that tape and ultimately become a big fan.

That review is a very one listen response to wz and of its time as I remember it being a high point of "alternative rock" popularity and people were expecting them to build on the "success" of cut your hair and they dropped this sprawling mass of a record & blasted through the songs in front of empty pavilion seats at daytime lollapaloozas. Looking back now, it's clearly a masterpiece and shows the band's progression as artists, but this is the terror twilight thread and that album is underrated, the production & sequencing were great on cd & hold up just fine.

terror twilight was actually the first pavement record i heard somehow, i was smitten with malkmus's songwriting and lyrics and esp guitar playing

I remember the cool-guy record store clerk saying he didn't like it (and was only into their early stuff).

When I bought the album the summer after it came out the record store guy excitedly told me "This album restored my faith in music!" (RIP Aboveground Records, Edgartown MA). I find it enjoyable enough but always felt sort of let down after that build-up.
