    Better than his solo debut, but lacking some of Pavements unpredictability.

    Pig Lib only has to spin four times before it burn a hole in your head and heart.

    Bold but not presumptuous, charming but not obsequious, limp, impish, pimpish, lathered, rinsed, repeated. A bold statement from a true American patriot.

  1. Our adult Malkmus is less prone to toss off a half-finished rough gem and more likely to polish and polish until things are a little too shiny.

    A natural follow-up to his first solo outing. [#229, p.68]
  3. What makes these songs really special is their ability to maintain a pop coherency, whilst being genuinely quirky and experimental.
