19 Sep 2010, 22:18 by HendrixFan42Sat 18 Sep – Pavement, Jenny and Johnny
The title might be a hyperbole, but seeing Pavement, the band that defined high school for me (along with the Replacements), but broke up before I even know who they were, was the day I've waited for all year. And it did not disappoint at all, with Pavement delivering an epic, high energy 28 song set that touched on the vast majority of their albums, except for their final Terror Twilight which was barely represented. Their trendsetting debut Slanted & Enchanted was most represented, but the shaky lo fi of that album was replaced with the sound of masters of live music, polished but far from slick, and truly exhilarating. The band had great stage presence, SM's voice was great, and seeing such songs as Stop Breathin', We Dance and Shoot the Singer live were simply unforgettable moments. By the time the band ended their second encore with Here, with the song's chorus of "Everything is ending here" finally turned into the power ballad it was always poised to be…

13 Feb 2010, 02:23 by ZeppledelinPerhaps not intentional, but Jimbobbins' late comment on my age-old list of debut albums made me realize how long it has been since my last journal post. Thanks for the much-needed inspiration. So, here’s another go at it, not only because I felt the old list needed an update, but also since I still have an affinity toward the unadulterated sincerity of debut albums. Let’s do a top 30 this time, shall we?
30. Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
The old school has a tendency to grow tedious; their innovations not so apparent anymore, but at least some of them retain their awesomeness. In this case it is possibly a matter of never being revolutionary, rather rock solid, wrapping together the best parts of their gangsta roots and adding a pleasant, if not entirely dead serious Eastern mysticism to the mix. And they did have humor, an incredible flow, personality and coolness, and the Wu-Tang definitely weren’t nothing to fuck with.
