what is your favorite album?
 
I was kind of surprised this thread isn't already on here, and it probably is if I looked, but I didn't. I was also going to do a poll, but I didn't feel like listing every album. I guess I am lazy today, sorry.

So what is your favorite SY album? I think, after much deliberation, mine would have to be Sister. I just straight up love everything about this album, it doesn't have a single flaw.

sarramkrop 04.05.2007 08:42 AM

Velvet Underground's 'White Light White Heat'.

nicfit 04.05.2007 08:47 AM

EVOL and NYC G&F.

fluxequalsrad 04.05.2007 09:03 AM

Washing Machine / Murray Street

Rob Instigator 04.05.2007 09:38 AM

DAYDREAM NATION (always and forever my favorite album of all time)

gmku 04.05.2007 09:47 AM

I've had a longstanding affinity for Goo. Big nostalgia factor, but I also think it has the most interesting cover and packaging art and some of the catchiest songs. It's sort of like pre-Nirvana grunge meets alternative pop.

sarramkrop 04.05.2007 09:58 AM

Yeah, but what your is favourite album?

demonrail666 04.05.2007 10:37 AM

A toss-up between the first two Velvets albums and Can's Delay 68.

As for SY, probably BMR

Forensic Scene 04.05.2007 10:43 AM

1. Sister
2. Sonic Nurse
3. Confusion is Sex
4. Washing Machine
5. A Thousand Leaves

Toxa 04.05.2007 11:41 AM

I can't choose all-time favorite....
atm - Murray Street

Massassinated 04.05.2007 11:55 AM

Definitely EVOL.

Inhuman 04.05.2007 12:07 PM

guitarpro 04.05.2007 01:38 PM

Goo

LittlePuppetBoy 04.05.2007 02:26 PM

Daydream Nation (with Bad Moon Rising in a close second place)

SonicSam 04.05.2007 02:57 PM

DDN. I don't get people who think washing machine is their best album. Of the 10 SY LPs I've heard It is probably the worst!

I'm more a Face Value man myself. Thurston and Lee's guitar work was really something.

EDIT: WHEN will this Big Phil madness ever end???!?!!!

hotwire my heart, a major flaw

Everyneurotic 04.05.2007 06:40 PM

1. (tied) dirty, confusion is sex and syr4: goodbye 20th century
2. pretty much everything else
3. daydream nation and rather ripped

atari 2600 04.05.2007 06:51 PM

Sister

youthoftomorrow 04.05.2007 07:09 PM

Daydream Nation or Sister. depends on the season.

EVOL and Nurse close behind.

auto-aim 04.05.2007 08:39 PM

I always see these kind fo questions pointless because there really is no answer for it - i mean to have one favourite out of all the records youve ever heard, i mean if you did have an answer to that you'd have to have a pretty narrow view of music.

I like sonic youth because they're consistantly great and it's like i cant see one album of theirs existing without another. That being said I'd go between sister, evol and nurse - i think. see! i cant even do it.

samuel 04.05.2007 08:40 PM

For the past two years, it's been A Thousand Leaves.

cagedbird 04.05.2007 08:40 PM

What is an album?

Mitch Albom? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitch_Albom)

Balm?

Malibu?

In college, my roommate had the Hole album with Malibu.

This is a post about my favorite album.

ahhavalon 04.05.2007 09:38 PM

It really depends on the mood, to me...
But, Daydream Nation is the one I would probably pick.

the ikara cult 04.05.2007 09:50 PM

the old personal meaning thing means that Sonic Nurse is my favourite ever.

Bubblegum's not on the original, its a bonus track on the re-releases.

it does not count.

that makes Evol a flawless album.

Dead-Air 04.06.2007 02:13 AM

Bad Moon Rising hands down. Not just my favorite Sonic Youth record, but favorite record period.

HECKLER SPRAY 04.06.2007 09:00 AM

Sister, a fucking good album from the beginning to the end...

to.w 04.06.2007 09:05 AM

confusion is sex (for the moment)

Why do you say " for the moment " ?

MellySingsDoom 04.06.2007 10:42 AM

For me, it's "Bad Moon Rising". There's not a weak moment, and the sequencing of the tunes is perfect.

Exactly. :D
I nearly systematically skip Bubblegum when I listen to Evol.
Expressway is a far better end to the album.

Not my fave, but a close second (I would rank it #3 after Evol and DDN).
Slightly uneven, but with a very special tone that makes up for its flaws.
And No queen blues + the Diamond sea are amongst the finest songs of SY.

luxinterior 04.06.2007 12:43 PM

I agree with all of you Bad Moon Rising people. I haven't had an urge to listen to Sonic Youth in quite a while, but if I did I would most certainly pick that album.

atsonicpark 04.06.2007 12:44 PM

vision creation newsun.

oh wait.
