Definitely not their best record. I like it and can listen to it enjoying a band that showed more enthusiasm for being Sonic Youth than the record that came before it. It's a good thing it came out and then they all fucked off to sort out whatever personal problems they were dealing with at the time. If it's the last we hear from them as band, it's an enjoyable record. They'd never be able to do Confusion is Sex again or whatever. And why should they, anyway?
