Though Surfer Rosa proto-typed the quiet-loud-quiet thing in 1988, it was Slint's 1991 swan song, Spiderland, that proved you could take the loud parts from the Melvins and the quiet parts from Philip Glass without sounding absurd. The album is thoroughly of its era, but its six mini epics are so carefully scripted that they also function as repertory pieces, as timeless and self-contained as a centuries-old opera. —JN, 2007
