They had songs that followed a hard-to-gauge internal logic, sometimes drifting into the ether or flying totally off the rails, sometimes achieving an unlikely revolution. They had punk tunes and country tunes and sad tunes and funny ones. They had fuzzy pop and angular new wave. They had raunchy guitar solos and stoner blues. They had pristine jangle and pedal steel.

Released in 1995, on the heels of two instant classics [Slanted and Enchanted ; Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain], Wowee Zowee confounded Pavement's audience and took the shine off their status as can't-lose critics' darlings.
