After few listens to RNR:
Exalted compared to the live version, which is much more loud, sounds a bit weird here, very silent at the beginning that you can barely here these interesting riffs. Then when it comes to the vocal section and echoing, um well it's messy and not in a good way. It kind of sounds like someone haven't spent enough time for production here.
Cusp is just interesting, something different from Thurston.
Turn On is ok, cool sounds and expansions. Some nice vocals then some bad vocals when the song gets higher tunes.
Smoke of Dreams is dreamy and I like it.
Aphrodite is the best track on RNR. Sounds like sonic youth could do that in the 80's, and the vocal sections are interesting, cool and different.
