Well, Terror Twilight is kind of the step child of the Pavement catalog because Scott Kanenberg doesn't have a song on it, and apparently Nigel Godrich was mostly interested in making a Stephen Malkmus record with the other guys just sort of playing instruments. I think it has tons of merit (actually, when I list them out it usually sits at #2), but I'm often on the other side of arguments like these. At any rate, there is a song called Speak See Remember (which I unfortunately cannot find a youtube for)
also, the Hexx http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfPCZrziows
Frank Black's record Show Me Your Tears was after a big jumping off point. Many fans had felt that Frank Black had left the realm of "college rock" for "college professor rock." Maybe he was releasing too many records that didn't contain enough real substance, but at any rate many people who I have spoken to felt a downturn in the quality after Dog In The Sand. A couple really great songs on Show Me Your Tears, including Massif Centrale and Everything is New (can't find a youtube of either of them either).
Paul Simon put out Songs From the Capeman as the soundtrack to a musical that he wrote. To make a long story short, the play was a total flop (enough to where when I saw him in concert he announced that he was going to play a song from the play and when everyone cheered he said "well, why didn't any of you see it"). At any rate, I guess I have an idea why it would have been a turn off to so many of his fans, it's a really amazing record. I really love the song Bernadette
