With their distorted guitar-driven sound, intelligent lyrics, and slacker style, Pavement came to define independent rock in the 1990s.

Of course, any career-spanning compilation, particularly one from such a legendary group, will have its detractors—fans irked by the exclusion of their favorite tracks, or mystified by the inclusion of ones they deem inferior. pavementAnd indeed, this collection is no exception.
