a thousand leaves has an experiemental blend that meshes amazingly with their songwriting, which becomes more epic and open-ended here. i love their use of pedals and their structures. a beautiful album.

murray street finds them relying on instrumental sections, yet for the first time, in it's grand majority it's not improvised noise, instead it's carefully constructed clean passages and interplay. it has more an emphasis on that yet, most songs are very song oriented and traditional in a sense.

both albums have a lot more in common than people realize

Murray Street. I just haven't gotten very into AKL yet. i like Lee's trax though. but in my opinion, Karen(ology/Revisited..?) would win it for murra street if it was just a single.

Murray Street, but it's close.

Live tour-wise it's very close as well, but also Murray Street.

That's a tough choice. Both in my top 3 probably. I'm going to have to go with 1000 leaves though... the sounds are so funky.

Murray Street is totally better than A Thousand Leaves. Karenology is the best song of this decade, and probably the best since Telephasic Workshop (like 6 years?)

Murray Street 9.4
ATL (lol) 7.5

The Empty Page 9.5
Disconnection Notice 7.5
Rain On Tine 9.0
Karenology 10.0
Radical Adults Lick Godhead Style 9.6
Plastic Sun 8.5
Sympathy For The Strawberry 9.0

Could someone upload the extra Japanese track if that's allowed here, please.

A 1000 Leaves contains some of Kim's best ever performances.

Vocally, lyrically and instrumentally.

A Thousand Leaves. It's definitely one of my favorite SY releases.
