I really liked the Body/Head releases. They were fresh noise.

I have not enjoyed Thurston's releases. he has a, frankly, shit ear for melody, something that was greatly helped by Lee Ranaldo. Chelsea Light Moving is like listening to your old uncle trying to act like Joni MItchell.

I have not enjoyed the Lee ranaldo releases either, but I have not given them as much of a listen as T's stuff.

I find that Kim is the only one who is a die-hard experimentalist. T wants to write somewhat anthemic rock music, and Lee wants to write soft, acoustic-themed, singer-songwriter crap. I much preferred both these guys when they were in the midst of exploding skronk and noise.

That's just me though.
