I think the Friends soundtrack is what, $18.99 at wal-mart? Go pick that up, call Coco and congradulate her then find out if she masturbates as i'm sure you're wondering. I'll be listening to Sister.

Daycare Nation 08.02.2006 11:19 PM

I don't care whether she masturbates. But I do care about one thing....great pop songs!

drrrtyboots 08.02.2006 11:20 PM

I know you do daycare, i know.

Daycare Nation 08.02.2006 11:21 PM

And how is that?

drrrtyboots 08.02.2006 11:24 PM

Because you've said it twice now in the past 10 minutes.

Daycare Nation 08.02.2006 11:26 PM

I don't recall having said that I have an interest in Coco's masturbation habits.

drrrtyboots 08.02.2006 11:26 PM

No, that you like pop songs.

Daycare Nation 08.02.2006 11:27 PM

Who doesn't? Noise albums are only fun if you are the one making them.

drrrtyboots 08.02.2006 11:32 PM

This may be true, but sonic youth have made very few "noise" albums considering what most people classify noise as and what you probably are right now (wolf eyes, merzbow etc.) Sister is NOT a noise album. SY love feedback and walls of white noise but don't rely on it to write songs. Pop albums are fun but they can lose their touch easily and get boring after a few plays.

Cantankerous 08.02.2006 11:33 PM

take it outside or shut the fuck up. PLEASE.

Yeah but Rather Ripped is not getting old, and neither does any truly great pop record. Only bad pop gets old.

Easy now, Robot!

She's got a point, this is neverending. I'm done.

Daycare Nation 08.02.2006 11:39 PM

You're done, and Rather Ripped is the winner! Incinerate!

Rather Ripped IS a bad pop album. Sonic Youth are not used to making such a low-key pop album, so it came out subpar. If they had thrown in more noise and signature dissonance, it could have worked out much beter. If you listen to mid 90's Flaming Lips, they mix noise and pop effortlessly into perfection. SY are lazy with the approach. It's like they didn't really try all that hard. I have no idea how you can support this album in such a manner.

And the last few SY albums HAVE NOT been boring. Murray Street was amazing and so was Sonic Nurse. Both albums hit a couple of small snags that throw off the album some what, Murray Street has Plastic Sun and Nurse has a couple of breif spots that slow it down near the end of the album. NYC Ghosts & Flowers may have been a bit of a misstep, but there's still enough material on thier that's worth listening to. A Thousand Leaves also has a few great tracks as well. It's not one of their besat overall albums, but still some great songs. These albums are jsut a biut mellower than their 80's material. You have to learn to love it. I have no idea how you can sit there and honestly tell me you like Rather Ripped than any of these other albums. It's lunacy. Pure lunacy.

I can support it because another album with "signature dissonance" would have been boring.
