Pavement's third full-length, WOWEE ZOWEE, split the difference between the wry lo-fi art-pop of their 1992 debut, SLANTED AND ENCHANTED, and that album's more polished follow-up, CROOKED RAIN CROOKED RAIN. In 2006, Matador Records gave WOWEE ZOWEE the deluxe treatment, adding an additional 30 tracks--including an entire second CD of b-sides, radio sessions, compilation tracks, and live cuts--and an extensive booklet with photos and liner notes. The deluxe "Sordid Sentinels" edition captures Pavement in their prime as players and at their most progressive as artists, making this reissue a must-have for fans and a nice bonus for those who missed the album the first time around.
