I am. I have bought completely useless compilation albums as intros to bands (e.g. The Fall). However on the other side of the coin ive bought really great ones (Tindersticks) which i still enjoy as much as the full albums. I tend to feel Sonic Youth wouldnt work in compilation mode, but it can vary.

Hey, Perhaps i werent clear. I dont mean in Nick Caves case, i havent heard much of his stuff. I meant in general some bands dont work at all in compilation format (e.g. The Fall, IMO) but some work just as well (e.g. Tindersticks IMO). I reckon Screaming Fields of Sonic Love wouldnt be a great intro cos the albums those songs are drawn from are very different in feel, albeit maybe not obviously so. I really am not making any sense in all aspects of my life at the moment so i probably have confused you with my rambling nature.

SY's problem compilation-wise is the same as The Fall's - Too long and varied a history. It would take at least a 4CD set to do a half-decent SY compilation. But Screaming Fields was a good roundup of the pre-Geffen era.

yea i guess it all depends on what type of music they like now. rather ripped is rather excessible to a non fan so is dirty and possibly goo. i know my first album was confusion is sex/kill yr idols it blew my mind but i was more into "punk" then

  2. "Eric's Trip" 3:49
  3. "Candle" 4:59
  4. "Into the Groove(y)" 4:35

  15. "Making the Nature Scene" 3:00
  16. "Brother James" 3:12
  17. "I Dreamed I Dream" 5:19
(those are wikipedia links btw)

that record fucking RULES!

of course i love evol the best, but my personal favorite does not necessarily make a good intro. this one does.

what Sonic Youth CD would you recommend as a starter for SY newbie? I would say Murray Street would be ideal - it's accessible and has some great tunes on it while not turning back on experimental soundscapes and feedback paranoia at times (Karen Revisited). Dirty would do as well.

what do you think?
Dirty

i didnt forget, that's how that album is set up.

however, i have to say, you got a point. in that case, the friend should receive a well-documented representative mixtape, rather than an official album; then they can go & pick whatever they want according to their tastes.

DeathValley89 has a couple of kiss-ass net friends
If you want to fet a feel for the early days of the band, look for a copy of the Screaming Fields CD. Or if your taste is more "mainstream", Rather Ripped is a good palce to start.
