Brighten the Corners is the fourth studio album by American indie rock band Pavement, recorded in 1996 and released the following year. All songs were written by lead singer Stephen Malkmus, apart from Scott Kannberg's "Date with Ikea" and "Passat Dream". After their last release, Wowee Zowee, Pavement’s drummer, Bob Nastanovich, said of this album, We were going to go into people’s rooms and brighten their corners with music. All tracks written by Stephen Malkmus, except where noted.
Brighten the Corners' more focused, melodic approach could thus be heard as the sound of Pavement making amends, but it arguably came too late- by 1997, modern-rock radio was already tuning out brainy indie-rock in favour of pre-fab pop-punk and numbskull nu-metal. Pavement understood this shift all to well, which could be why Brighten the Corners sounds like their most self-aware and, by extension, honest album- when Stephen Malkmus yells, "listen to me, I'm on the stereo!" on the album's excitable opening track, it's with the implicit knowledge that he'd. But on no other Pavement album do all those bon mots and non sequitirs form such a coherent picture of the band's emotional state.
And the record is calm, with none of the full-out blasts of noise that marked all of their previous releases.

A rather joyous pop explosion after the complications of "Wowee Zowee", "BTC" received both critical acclaim and commercial success. This four-LP vinyl box set includes eight extra tracks not on the CD, five of which are previously unreleased, plus one great unreleased song. Also includes material from the CD version: the remastered original twelve song album, ten non-album B-sides, ten outtakes, and fourteen live radio session tracks. My brother showed me them about seven years ago, he had gotten a recommendation from some cool townies in the local record store.
