Shit Talk Crooked Brain, Crooked Brain

Tonight at Linda’s somebody put the entire Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain album by Pavement on the jukebox. My reaction: “Awesome! I love this album!” My friend’s reaction: “Meh.” I was shocked to find out that my associate, who likes most of the same music as me, doesn’t care about Pavement, one of the best bands of the nineties. Even if he didn’t celebrate their entire catalog I figured that he at least would appreciate their finest album. “They’re like Modest Mouse to me,” he said. “Everybody else likes them but I just don’t get it.”
I never thought of Pavement as a band that someone just “wouldn’t get.” Do a lot of people feel this way? Who doesn’t love Crooked Rain?
