I can see this, actually. It's not an opinion I share (like, at all) but I can see it. I can see how GBV at their career best (like, say, 1990-1999?) might be more appealing than Pavement's discography, especially if you're into rollicking rock tunes, of which Pavement never had many.
But I like to take the whole into consideration. And Pavement's career is one of more hits and fewer misses than GBV's, in my opinion. GBV stopped being great many many moons ago. Now you're lucky if you can get an album that's more decent songs than throwaways. Just sayin'.
