Least favorite of SY's "critically-acclaimed trio" of albums?
EVOL never did much for me; it's got some really great songs on it, but it seems much more inconsistent than Sister and DDN.

Daydream Nation

so hard! I'll have to go with sister I think. But those three are all of such high quality from start to finish.

I don't enjoy EVOL much, except Marilyn Moore.

SuperCreep 08.01.2009 10:46 AM

EVOL has some really minor off spots, but it's sill very near a perfect album for me.

Kannibal 08.01.2009 10:56 AM

can't understand why daydream nation is interesting.

I didn't want to...but I voted Sister.

automatic bzooty 08.01.2009 11:46 AM

as much as i like it, sister.

I voted Daydream Nation. I like the album, just not as much as Sister or EVOL

I'm going with Sister on this one. aside from Schiz, Catholic Block, SS, and White Kross, the songs really don't work for me. EVOL, while lacking AMAZING!, standout songs, is a solid album when taken as a whole.

Sister I think ... but somehow I can't bring myself to vote. It just seems so wrong,

Dead-Air 08.01.2009 12:03 PM

Evol is my favorite of the three. While Bad Moon Rising is my favorite Sonic Youth album hands down (my favorite music album hands down, actually!) I really was impressed by the group for doing something completely different as a follow up. Sister is the "Sister" album to Evol, and Daydream Nation is a solidifying of that direction.

I hate voting for "least favorite" things though. Such a silly way to look at great art. Which is worse Guernica or Blue Nude? I prefer to focus on favorites rather than dwelling on what I "don't like as much."

Daydream Nation. BMR through Sister is my favorite run of albums from anybody, and I don't see why Daydream is supposedly so much better.

DanielCarlson 08.01.2009 12:59 PM

Sister probably, though it's really fucking awesome. EVOL is their best album and Daydream Nation could be a little bit more perfect than Sister. But it's hard.

daydreaming days in a daydream nation. I think it's one of my least-listened to SY albums.

joe11121 08.01.2009 02:08 PM

Sadly, I voted for Sister. I love all 3, DDN is my favourite.

DDN has the best lyrics of, well, any SY release in my opinion. There's a thematic consistency and a poetic, insightful beauty that's rare, not only for SY, but in rock music in general.

Sister because it actually has one or two songs I don't like.

jerf 08.01.2009 02:47 PM

evol. sister has pipeline on it, and that is one of my favorite songs. i cant vote for sister solely on that fact.

sonic sphere 08.01.2009 05:21 PM
