Never really got into Washing Machine when i first got it, although the song Washing Machine is one of my favourite SY tunes.
The other week, i woke up with The Diamond Sea in my head, and i had to dig out the cd. And its fucking lush. Its been on my stereo for about 2 weeks now and i cant get enough of it. I can't believe i neglected it for so long.

So, are there any SY albums that you pick up again after years, and fall in love with again?

I never wholly realised just how good Sister is untill last year. I knew it was a great LP, but for some reaon last year the whole thing really clicked with me, and I realised just how wonderful it is.

Albums I've grown a new appreciation for years after owning it:

Faith No More-King for a Day, Fool For A Lifetime", after falling in love with "AngelDust" I just felt this one was a major let down, mostly because it was not as heavy. I had not listened to it for some time, and a few months ago I found it in a box along with other old CDs I had bought and listened to it, and find the CD a lot better then I first gave credit to. But its still no "AngelDust".

I used to hate Sister. Aside from I think Tuff Gnarl, I didn't really like anything about it. Now I love it.

I love the word "lush". And "brill". It just doesn't sound right without the accent. The UK gets all the good slang...

1 of the things i love about WM is the way some of the songs melt into themselves, the end of Washing Machine is such a contrast to the main part of the song, yet it flows into it perfectly. So smooth. I still get goose bumps down my spine. And i hadn't ever noticed how beautiful Lee's songs are.
Such a good record

This is the best record ever by any artist. The funny thing is i didn't like it when I first heard it. The only sy albums I liked right from the start were daydream nation and murray street.

I have found a new and fresh appreciation for Confusion Is Sex... I haven't sat down and listened to it properly for years, but the other day I had a real urge to listen again and wow! I adore the razor sharp brittle production... the opening chords of (She's in a) Bad Mood send my senses into orgasm etc.

I don't think theirs any albums by them that I hated then now love. I still dislike NYCG&F I can never get into it also with Sister.

Washing Machine is a pretty good album. I love Lee's contributions. He's a true genius. And I absolutely LOVE the Diamond Sea. I can't belive the band doesn't really play it anymore. I want to see/hear them do it live in the worst way.

Diamond Sea is beautiful. I find it as if it's a combination of their very old stuff with the popish stuff they do nowadays. Saucer-Like and Becuz are two of my other favorite tracks, but I never really got into the whole middle portions of the album as much. The CD that I bought and dug out later to discover it's wonders is Experimental Jet Set. Damn, every song is great on it, bu tI find EJS is really dependant on mood. You have sonds like Winner's Blues and Sink which require a certain mood to obtain the full effect of the song IMO. Great album overall though
