iN Terms of sonic youth.
unless you don't like pop songs.
if you love the feedback- Washing Machine
if you love the melodic touches- Murray Street (my personal favourite)
if you love the heavier stuff- The earlier the louder..
Oh, and get Murray Street next.
Do you prefer the noisier or more melodic side?
THe new one's got merzbow, jim o rourke and mat gustaffson on it and it is very much a noise record (SYR8 I think) 'ander sider auf sonic youth'. Excellent noise.
Sister is a true classic. Whenever i think of true sonic youth sound sister is what comes to mind; but if your more into melodic and structured sonic youth then I'd say Murray St. which is probably their best effort since goo at a straight "rock" album.
then dirty, then sonic nurse.
that is all...( i gotta catholic block...)
a thousand leaves
and sister are the bestest
I really like it.
