On their second album, Pavement had a lot to prove. Their debut album, 1992's Slanted & Enchanted, recieved such enormous amounts of praise that it must have put a lot of pressure on the band to follow it up with a record equally as great.

And that they did. 1994's Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain is yet another lo-fi masterpiece. I don't know a person alive who won't want to tap their foot when they hear "Cut Your Hair".

In addition, Stephen Malkmus's lyrics are better than ever. On songs like "Stop Breathin" and "Unfair" he flows like some sort of quirky poet hero.
