CD Reviews

FYI

"This wasn't Slint's "farewell" recording as some people seem to think. Slint's first album, Tweez, was recorded in 1987, but it wasn't released until early 1989 on Jennifer Hartman Records. At that time, they recorded these two songs with the intent to release them as a 12" single on the JH label as well. But before they could do that, they signed with Touch & Go Records. T&G didn't want a single, they wanted a full album. Therefore this was shelved. Then Spiderland was recorded sometime in 1990. Slint broke up around 1991 or 92, and then a year or two after that it was decided to release this rather then allow it to continue collecting dust.

EDIT: 3/4/08

As for the music itself- There are two songs on the disc. The first song is an alternate version of Rhoda from Tweez. The second song sounds like a Tweez outtake, though I don't think it is. The bottom line is, this sounds almost nothing like Spiderland."
Too bad they are gone

"slint was an amazing band, and in many ways this untitled cd single was the perfect way for them to end their too short career. the first track is similar to the songs from spiderland (only better done, focusing more on the instrumental buildup, and without the lyrics), while the second song is a remake of a song off tweez. they are both excellent songs, showing why slint was one of the most influential bands of the last 15 years."
The best Slint record.

"Despite this CD's only 13 minutes long, it's their best record, in my opinion. There's a lot more of an experimental approach, like on "Tweez" but it's refined. Both tracks are very engaging and interesting, but their remake of "Rhoda" from "Tweez" (the second track) is the real standout, employing jarring time signature changes and unconventional guitar techniques."
