As a big fan of Pavement and a big fan of alot of different kinds of music, some of which are very, very different from Pavement, I can’t help but wonder:
if they were technically proficient at playing and recording their instruments and singing, but everything else was basically the same – the lyrics, the composition, etc. – would they be as acclaimed as they are? I’m not arguing one way or the other but it’s interesting to think about. The slacker-but-sharp delivery was certainly due to the lyrical content and the messiness of the playing was a big part of it…but take Nels Cline and Jeff Tweedy; they both pull of the spazzy-but-tasteful playing well and also do plenty of accurate and tight playing. Jeff can scream and also sing like a bird (although of course, some people just dont dig his voice). If SM actually didn’t have intonation issues (in addition to the guitars’ intonation issues) while singing and the band was tighter from the start, and the recordings were engineered a bit better, would people care as much?
