nooooo

you'll get in trouble sharing illegal files from a military installation

but if you want to back up your own files for your own protection at the same quality for future proofness...

look for FLAC encoders and go from there (took about 1/3 the space as i recall... don't know these days)

o man, i remember the ripping era... luckily i no longer need

last time i tried to back up my discs, a few years ago, i did it on itunes on a mac. and the thing automatically found cover images, etc... then deposited them on my local file server

but holy fuck i got bored with the process and then hardware failure kiboshed the whole project (the cloud was not quite there back then, this was like 2 years before icloud was launched) and oh who has the TIME to look after this. i must work for a living.

i lack patience to manage collections. i love the library, but i prefer to use it than to manage it

(i have made peace with this now)

anyway, yeah... be nice to your discos. cd-r is particularly fragile

Sonic Nurse is when Sonic Youth started to tread water, it's not bad but if you programmed an AI to make an SY record it would probably sound like this. If i remember correctly it was around this time that Sonic Youth got their foot in the door with Starbucks.

Today's been the most depressing SYG day I can remember. The quote above makes me nauseous, and at the Trump thread there was so much conservative horseshit from people who should know better that I unsubscribed from it.

T&B is pretty spot on about Sonic Nurse. How can you compare what came before to this record? It's Sonic Youth suddenly being a bit boring. The fact it's not entirely rubbish helped me through the trauma of hearing Rather Ripped for the first time. A couple of songs, maybe three, worth loving between these albums.

It isn't helped by Jim O'Rourke's production style either

I remember coming back here to say that Sonic Youth's peak was in the 80s and someone posted that they had "five different peaks" and named Sonic Nurse as one of the reasons why the mid 2000s were a peak for them. Why any band would have five different peaks of their career is beyond me. I dunno, a lot of later Sonic Youth just sounds so uncreative to me now. The 80s records encapsulate a moment, sound, mood, idea etc. and ride it out to its full potential. They lost that starting with Goo.

Goo was the first SY record to have a few wack tracks, but they still did a lot of truly great stuff in the 90s, and Dirty, ExpJetSet and 1000 Leaves are pretty much end to end brilliance.

Yeah they're good albums but they don't aim for something grander like the 80s records do. There's something missing in them that made EVOL or Sister so mystifying and almost otherworldly.

I think ExpJetSet is a fairly mystifying/mysterious record, the Kim songs especially

I don't know about that.

This song for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vSo0InPQlU

It's lyrically as dark as anything they did in the 80s and the ending is pretty fantastic. It doesn't sound like there's a lack of creativity going on to me, but I understand taste is taste etc. Fair enough. Besides, I think Sonic Youth at that time were too enshrined in the mainstream but not exactly a band that fit into it to please all the underground, blank cd creatives that were gathering momentum at fast pace.

Oh no, there's definitely individual songs that aim for something grander, but front to back as a unified album concept not reallyyyyy.
