Pavement had a reputation for being lazy, but I'm not sure if I buy into that; especially seeing as they released so many quality B-sides and showed such dedication to fans. When I first picked up the Spit on A Stranger EP my initial thought was "man, this is better than the album that it's supporting." A little time and a lot of listens changed my mind about Terror Twilight (which is an excellent album) but this is still one of my favorites. Spit on a Stranger was probably Pavement's prettiest single, and it's followed by two excellent numbers which embody the rock-oriented side of Pavement during their final years. The final two tracks are much more experimental; well written songs played like they are demos from a jam session led by a keyboard. Tremendous fun. In short, this consistent EP sums up everything that was great about Pavement; great songs, an experimental ethic and music that really, really rocks.
