    One of my favorite 90's albums from a great 90's band. Great reissue. I highly recommend this record to anyone who loves the time period and the music made therein.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. From Stereo to Startling on a Slipstream Pavement's Brighten The Corners still puts a huge dent in my listening time. Now If only I was old enough to hear them live back in their adolescent days of dreaming to make it big I could find out just how exhilarating it would be to hear them in person. Fortunately this reissue of Bright The Corners:The Nicene Creedence Edition does with there various extended live tracks. This reissue is filled with even more distortion hard to hear lyrics and sounds that make Pavement even more unique as they already are. I highly recommend this Reissue to any Pavement fans and a perfect beginner album to anyone who is yet to realize just how awesome Pavement is. Expand

  1. All this extra material may not carry the same deliberate weight as so much of Brighten the Corners, but it enhances the album considerably, bringing it closer to an album that can stand with Pavement's first three classics.
  2. Individually as good as much of BTC, the bonus material is almost as listenable as the album itself.
  3. Many of the unreleased, B-side, and cover tracks here are less immediate, but no less joyful for the Pavement completist.
