Synopsis

Album Description
Originally released in April 1995, fresh off the success of "Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain", the band recorded a deliberately chaotic and eclectic album that sounded nothing like its predecessor. With influences from the Groundhogs to the Frogs, Captain Beefheart to the more obscure mid-'80s central California hardcore bands, "Wowee Zowee" confused critics and alienated fans. Yet it became a fan favorite over time. The songs have a darkness that now seems appropriate and with Bryce Goggin at the mixing desk, the production was the band's most rocking to date. This super-deluxe re-mastered comp contains an embossed slipcase with two CDs and a 64-page perfect-bound book, fifty tracks total; eighteen unreleased recordings, nine non-album b-sides, four compilation tracks, five BBC Evening Session tracks and much more.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the album where it all came togather for Pavement. This captures their full range of music/emotions perfectly. Starting off very slow with "We dance" to a more typical later Pavement song, "Rattled By the Rush". Its got the fast/dirty playful tunes like "Serpentine Pad" and just over all brilliant songs like "Grounded". Thats not even counting the Pavement classics like, "Grave Architecture", which has a whole slew of musical styles in one song.. This album is just plain brilliant and should work with ANY Pavement fan.. Be it the newer or older albums (like Slanted and Enchanted, etc..) A perfect album.. start to finish. Refreshing in todays world of singles and 1 song downloads.. Nice to hear a great peice of work, with no songs to skip."
