I have 'Goo' and 'Daydream Nation'. I much prefer Goo, what should i go for next?
maybe rather ripped as well. those are their most "pop" records.
sister/evol/bad moon rising have the same kinda sound as daydream but the songs are more concise.
confusion is sex is brilliant but pretty divorced from the rest of their catalogue.
washing machine is great but again a number of the songs are very drawn out.
their more recent records tend to be more jam-my. i really like murray street out of those.
this reminds me that i still haven't listened to the eternal.
go for Dirty, Rather Ripped or Washing Machine
two of the songs are very long (and brilliant imo) but the rest of the album is very concise and accessible
it strikes exactly the right balance between melody and experimentation (in my opinion anyway)
Yes, some of songs are long winded, but the album has moments of brilliance and is never less than very, very interesting. I think its an album that sums up Sonic Youth perfectly... Enjoy!
their best imho
