As someone who’s been a casual Pavement listener, I can tell you that it’s hard to know where to start with their career.  Hardcore fans would tell you that Slanted & Enchanted is the single greatest album of all time, but my first introduction to the band was in 8th grade.  I heard “Cut Your Hair” on a promo for something on MTV and was quickly introduced to Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain by the Tower Records staff.  I bought most of the albums that followed but Crooked Rain has always been my favorite.  Now Pavement is releasing a best of album titled Quarantine The Past.  And if you didn’t know what to buy first, then this is the perfect 23 song introduction.  It’s out a day early on itunes so buy it here.
