Pavement - Brighten The Corners 12 inch
1997's Brighten the Corners, a shorter, mellower and more conventional record than the previous album, was produced by Mitch Easter. Malkmus stated on the Slow Century DVD that the album was an attempt to show audiences that Pavement had more mainstream and classic rock influences than it had previously portrayed. The album contained two of the band's best known singles in "Stereo" and "Shady Lane". It was the only Pavement album to include a lyric sheet except Slanted and Enchanted and sold better than its predecessors.
