Being a kid that did not get into SY until EJST&NS, I am always intrigued to hear people's perceptions of this time period for SY from the already existing fanbase. In retrospect, I can certainly see where this was an odd time.
For me, my first live SY experience was Lollapalooza, shortly before Washing Machine was even released. Only about a year or so of really getting into the,. So experiencing songs from this album live before knowing them, coupled with my overall euphoria just solidified this album's placement as a favorite in my history.
