A decent EP from the last album from 90s supergroup Pavement. It was nice to see Gary Young show up for what was the group's sad swan song - and this EP leaves a bittersweet taste in my mouth. Highlights are Stub your Toe and Malkamus crooning in the cover of Echo & the Bunnymen's Killing Moon (also featured on the first Matador anniversary comp.) I could have done without the Casio inspired version of Major Leagues - even with the "You Kiss Like a Rock/ But You know I need it anyway". In all a good ep - so sad it was their last.

Hypothetical political lyrical miracle whip. Ah, Humpty, where have you gone? If you are a fan of Pavement you must own this album or turn in your fan club card. This is about as un-Pavement as they get. One song is in french which I don't speak. It doesn't matter anyways because I usually don't get what they're trying to say when they speak in english. However I know how I feel when I listen to their music. -Is there anywhere in the US where signs are in English and French? I think not.- So get this single or else you are forever cursed to be a poser when you enter a pavement chat room (are there any?) and someone talks about abstract expressionism in "Decouvert De Soleil." Is there any? I don't know it's in FRENCH. French is for fashion and hockey, right? I am for Pavement.

Major Leagues is an EP to be filed under single plus filler. Both the single edit and the demo version of "Major Leagues" from Pavement's Terror Twilight are worth owning (the single mix is cleaner than the CD version; the demo demonstrates a good song in its simplest form). The unreleased tracks are defiant B-sides (the French-speaking "Decouvert de Soleil" is a hoot). The best reason to own this single plus filler are the remakes. Pavement, no slouches in the innovation department, prove that The Fall are virtually uncoverable - the cadences of "The Classical" were written to spec for Mark E. Smith's delivery. It's a lesson in stubborn wrongheadedness. But their cover of Echo and the Bunnymen's "The Killing Moon" is inspired. Pavement invests the hyper-romanticism of the song with their ironic distance; the tug of war between the two fascinates, with romance trumping irony in the final round. The struggle is thrilling.

If you're into Pavement and want to start collecting singles, start with Spit on a Stranger, Pacific trim, and Shady Lane. Those are easily the best. However, if you have all those,Major Leagues is a great addition. Your time to Change and Stub Your Toe are excellent Scott songs recorded with original drummer Gary Young. Decouvert de Solei is a catchy little demo, half of which is sung in french, and it's great. Has kinda a surf sounding guitar and more upbeat than Terror twilight's stuff. The major Leagues demo made me actually like that song more. The two covers at the end are not quite as good as original Pavement songs, but they aren't bad.

TERROR TWILIGHT is, hands down, the best album of '99. nothing else this year even came close, really. and "Major Leagues" is a quiet, catchy little gem of a single. as for the other tunes, "Your Time to Change" and "Stub Your Toe" are odd, (almost Devoish) thorny slabs of skewed pop.
