Inspired by the sonic phase thread. Someone on the old board loosely grouped SY's records into a chronological series of trilogies that I thought were pretty accurate, although I'm sure there are some arguments for other groupings. But here's how I see it, so which do you think is best? Right now, I myself actually can't decide.

i;ll have to think on it... as there's one favorite album in every part. BMR, evol, goo, WM, nurse... maybe goo.

Even though I don't like EVOL that much I had to go with EVOL/Sister/Daydream Nation.


Murray Street, SN were close behind, but I can't really say because I haven't heard Rather Ripped.

I like the trilogy cycle theory but It's just damn near impossible for me to say... SY/CIS/BMN was when I first got into them and will always have a special place in my heart... but then again so does E/S/DDN + WM/ATL/NYCG+F what the fuck!
