Q (4/00, p.115) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...a unique cross-fertilization of British beat group blues with the abrasive Detroit power of The Stooges and MC5....touting howled vocals over bass-less proto R&B..."Alternative Press (7/95, p.104) - Ranked #88 in AP's list of the `Top 99 of '85-'95' - "...The groove from Jon Spencer comes from a possession of spirit and soul. There is enough rock 'n' roll there to hold on to but its presence is neither the purpose nor the goal. It's heavy like a hammer and sassy with organ..."Option (9-10/93, p.127) - "...like Mick Jagger and David Johansen before him, Spencer mines all the appropriate blues and soul men, from John Lee Hooker to Al Green. Unlike those, he ain't making a lot of tokens doing it..."Melody Maker (9/25/93, p.34) - "...Jon Spencer plough[s] an even more maverick furrow than before....[EXTRA WIDTH] is a great row....One of the best records in months..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's stewed in funk and soul....Spencer played sinful loverman, his lycanthrope snarl drenched in slapback reverb, sounding gargantuan."NME (Magazine) (9/4/93, p.30) - "...EXTRA WIDTH throws it all up...our Jon is willing to regurgitate 40 years' worth [of rock] any damn way he pleases..."Uncut (magazine) (p.103) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Bass-less, earnest, witty and fierce, the Blues Explosion mashed blues, rock, soul and punk on this 1993 breakthrough."0.256887

Rolling Stone (5/16/96, p.64) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...The trio must have known something was off, because only months after releasing PROTECTION, it took the unprecedented step of having the dub icon Mad Professor do this remixed version of the album....The difference is astonishing..."Spin (1/96, p.64) - Included on Spin's list of the "10 Best Albums You Didn't Hear In '95." - "...NO PROTECTION represents two of 1995's most underappreciated trends: dub's third coming, and musicians--from Jon Spencer to (soon) Yoko Ono--waving goodbye to the `integrity' of their product."0.2436593

Rolling Stone (10/3/96, p.72) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...NOW I GOT WORRY finds the Blues Explosion...stripping down to basics. Spencer and the band eschew the hip-hop influences that came to a head on 1994's ORANGE, opting instead for a more gutbucket approach..."Spin (11/96, pp.121-122) - 7 (out of 10) - "...retreats from the promising, wiggy pomo melange of 1994's ORANGE in favor of garage raunch....there's no confusing the deft simplicity of Spencer's current riff-conjuring with the nascent primitivism of his band's debut CRYPT STYLE..."Q (11/96, p.136) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...This album...is the trio's most unapologetic yet, with screeching dementia through broken-down amps, speed railroad blues and barely decipherable lyrics..."Alternative Press (12/96, p.80) - 5 (out of 5) - "...JSBX have made an album that not only honors the raw, spontaneous emotionalism of the music that inspires them...but also done so without aping them mindlessly or attempting revision..."Vibe (3/97, p.140) - "...New York City punk rockers the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion mine the Mississippi Delta for the secrets of its soil..."Melody Maker (12/21-28/96, pp.66-67) - Ranked #11 on Melody Maker's list of 1996's "Albums Of The Year."Melody Maker (9/28/96, p.48) - Recommended - "...Everything's under control, everything's allowed room to breathe. Not a note, not a beat is wasted. There are continual explosions of noise; drums roll, and guitars scrape in glorious monotony....a replica, sure. But it's so damn EXCITING!"Musician (1/97, p.85) - "...continues to smash funk backbeats, blues cliches, and sleazy slide guitar work against a wall of (literally) screaming punk mania....Ludicrous and excessive, the style works--mainly because it just plain rocks....Rackety, impolite, compulsively rhythmic, and funny as hell..."Village Voice (2/25/97) - Ranked #39 in the Village Voice's 1996 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] Spencer howling distorted blues moans over white noise and eerie harmonies..."Pitchfork (Website) - "[H]ere the abrupt breakbeat edits and dubby textures feel less like tentative dabbles and more like strategic devices used to better convey the songs' anxious energy."0.2055096

Rolling Stone (12/29/94-1/12/95, p.181) - "...With second guitarist Judah Bauer and drummer Russell Simins...[Spencer] wails fractured postmodern bluesoid stuff that's as weird, fun and spooky as original blues-dripping rockabilly."Entertainment Weekly (11/25/94, p.77) - "...New Yorker Spencer and his two bandmates jam like it's blues night in the psych ward....The resulting cross between rock and insanity can be thrilling in its fervency..."- Rating: BQ (10/94, p.126) - 3 Stars - Good - "...Blues Explosion manage to work on entertaining, lurching variations on the power trio format with Spencer himself exhibiting a hectoring deference to both Mark E. Smith and Jerry Lee Lewis..."Alternative Press (12/94, p.86) - "...ORANGE is an ambitious, well-executed release that shows growth while still shaking some action..."Option (3-4/95, p.135) - "...the third official Blues Explosion album peppers its scrungy, bar-based blues with funk, rockabilly, disco, Stax soul, several Elvis shudders, a bit o'white noise, and Beck's infamous phoned-in guest rap....More importantly, it works..."Village Voice (2/28/95) - Ranked #16 in the Village Voice's 1994 Pazz & Jop Critics Poll.Billboard (p.36) - "Fast, punky and laced with nods to the sounds of the '70s..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.58) - Ranked #68 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "Beefheart, Stax, James Brown: all get stomped under the Cuban heel of Russell Simins' monster beat."Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "ORANGE was the blues as heard from the streets of Manhattan, post-Public Enemy, punk rock and all that other New York noise."NME (Magazine) (12/24/94, p.22) - Ranked #16 in NME's list of the `Top 50 Albums Of 1994.'Pitchfork (Website) - "The Blues Explosion were honest, organic experimenters -- fusing tons of different styles into their musical assault without compromising their ferocity or making any of it sound forced."Record Collector (magazine) (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[The] balance of rough with smooth, the comic with the deadly serious, was perfect."0.1830876

Rolling Stone (p.98) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "In 1997, these slacker romantics slowed things down and serenaded their fans, delivering an album short on noise and long on artfully dissonant ballads."Rolling Stone (2/20/97, p.68) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...reaffirms what was likeable about Pavement in the first place: their angular but graceful melodies, their languorous anti-anthems and, of course, Malkmus' labyrinthine--and often funny or poignant--lyrical turns..."Spin (1/98, p.87) - Ranked #11 on Spin's list of the "Top 20 Albums of the Year."Spin (3/97, p.99) - 8 (out of 10) - "...these tunes want you and they're not shy about it. They catch you up, charm, rouse, and freak you, and don't often ridicule....BRIGHTEN THE CORNERS is a guitar-rock album invigorated by hip-hop, in the same way MARQUEE MOON was a guitar-rock album invigorated by reggae..."Entertainment Weekly (p.69) - "[A] trove of effortless pleasures, from the pogo-party frolic 'Stereo' to the rickety, fuzzed-up gem 'Date w/ Ikea.'" -- Grade: AEntertainment Weekly (2/21-2/28/97, p.125) - "Curbing their smarty-pants indulgences, these wiseacres get down to business, crafting indie guitar rock that ebbs and flows with delicate power....BRIGHTEN proves there are still signs of life in this otherwise moribund genre." - Rating: BQ (3/97, p.110) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Pavement have fallen into a more straightforward emotional gush on BRIGHTEN THE CORNERS....It's like Husker Du playing lo-fi pop punk with a spiked, almost newsworthy literate prosemaster, high on Pixies-flavoured twists..."Alternative Press (3/97, p.73) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...The licks are still crispy, and the hooks are still catchy. Toe-tappingly catchy, in fact, to the point that [BRIGHTEN THE CORNERS] is likely to appeal broadly..."CMJ (1/6/03, p.18) - Included in CMJ's list of "Top 25 College Radio Albums of All Time"Melody Maker (2/8/97, p.49) - Recommended - "...melodic, accessible and...Sixties-influenced....In the same way Pavement's early material could've been seen as a loving tribute to the off-kilter eccentricity of The Fall, their fourth album is Britpop seen through a trans-Atlantic cultural prism..."Village Voice (2/24/98) - Ranked #10 in the Village Voice's 1997 Pazz & Jop Critics' Poll.Billboard (p.46) - "[T]he singles 'Stereo' and 'Shady Lane' are among the band's best..."Q (Magazine) (p.124) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Moments of melodic pop genius such as 'Shady Lane' and Byrds-influenced 'Date w/Ikea' sit snugly next to the quieter likes of 'Transport Is Arranged' and beautiful 'Starlings Of The Slipstream.'"Mojo (Publisher) (p.122) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "BRIGHTEN THE CORNERS remains the indie subersives' sturdiest selection of songs, with a slight return of the Gen X anthem in the switchbacking, Geddy Lee-invoking 'Stereo' and a resurgence of mainman Stephen Malkmus's needling wiseacre persona..."NME (Magazine) (12/20-27/97, pp.78-79) - Ranked #24 in NME's 1997 Critics' Poll.Blender (Magazine) (p.67) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "This 1997 set showcases the band at its breeziest...as singer Stephen Malkmus muses slightly less cryptically than usual over loose-limbed guitars and honest-to-goodness hooks."Clash (magazine) (p.108) - "[With] some of Pavement's finest moments; from 'Shady Lane' to 'Stereo,' it's a welcome revisit to one of the most 'indie' bands ever."Record Collector (magazine) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Pavement] could breathlessly churn out melodies and riffs."0.08856046
