Slint's 1991 album, Spiderland, remastered from the original analog master tapes by Bob Weston. Simply a classic album.

Although this Kentucky combo had a short lifespan, its influence has been extraordinary, presaging the underground 'math-rock' revolution and spawning spinoffs such as the For Carnation and King Kong with members playing with Palace Brothers, Tortoise and a multitude more. But don't go thinking that the foursome is a mere footnote: the bracingly dense, dizzyingly complex songs that vein this, their second full-length release, perfectly capture the smarter face of early-'90s thug-rock. Spiderland is so rife with breakneck tempo changes, off-kilter chord progressions, and bizarro-world themes, you'd be hard-pressed to go a listen without discovering something new. An immense album that every home should own.
