Depth? I don't think that's quite it. They're more dynamic, maybe. I mean, they have touched on a broader range of genres.
But actually that might not even be true... SY has done hardcore/post-hardcore/punk/noise/grunge/pop/experimental and even dipped their toes in electronica and jazz. I mean, look at SYR and the Mats Gustafsen collabo's.
Pavement was more colorful, let's put it that way. They had a brighter and crisper and more immediate sound. But I think that SY had more along the lines of actual "depth", but that's a subjective and hard to define term.
