- Awesome Music: Why else would Spiderland be so influential? Highlights of the album include:
- The part of "Don, Aman," in which raging electric guitars burst into the mix.
- The chorus of "Nosferatu Man."
- The ending of "Good Morning, Captain," with Brian's famous "I MISS YOU!" screams.
- The untitled EP is also pretty great (if not quite as great as Spiderland), and the currently unreleased "King's Approach" is probably on par with Spiderland.
- Paranoia Fuel: Spiderland seems designed to invoke either this ("Don, Aman") or outright Nightmare Fuel.
- Short-Lived Big Impact: Despite only two albums and a posthumous EP to their name, Slint are considered the be the Trope Makers of Post-Rock.
- Tear Jerker: "Washer" by far is their most depressing song.
YMMV / Slint
