Listening to that record again. Best new millenium SY album by far. Thoughts?

Nope. I do love Murray street, but I really do prefer the energy of rather ripped and the overall sound of sonic nurse better. I think Sonic Nurse has some of their best songs on it.

I think Sonic Nurse is the best. There are a couple Murray Street songs that I never got into.

For 'sheer class' (as I believe Hip Priest very accuratly describes the album), I enjoy Murray Street.
But Sonic Nurse probably is, to me, a better album.

^ I've probably also used the word 'perfect'. Its the greatest rock LP ever recorded.

Hello, Derek. Nice to meet you. I did a 'best track' Murray Street poll some time ago; perhaps you'd care to vote in it and give it a bump too: http://www.sonicyouth.com/gossip/showthread.php?t=254

Murray Street is good and chill (for the most part). A good record for a quiet Sunday

I'm not sure if it's my favorite millenium SY album. I got alot of love for Rather Ripped and Sonic Nurse also

I love Murray Street, but I think Sonic Nurse is better. I like Rather Ripped but in my opinion it's not in the same league as MS or SN.

Rather Ripped is Rather Shit compared to Murray Street and Sonic Nurse.

Murray Street is the best 21st Century SY record.

Murray street is by far the best record they have done since 2000. NYC G&H, Sonic Nurse and rather ripped are NO WAY near as good. (in my opinion). The only song i didn't like so much from Murray Street was radical adults. Every other song is lovely.

I see where you're coming from. It's only seven tracks (even though it's at album length which is about 45 minutes).

To have to get up and flip the record over kept me thin !!!!

i love sides, listening to sides. me and the instigators get together and bring records and the rule is each person gets a side, or two sides of a seven inch single, which is cool and every one ,listens to different stuff they may not otherwise hearand it rules.

I love it when side two is better than side one; there's nothing to make me love an album so much as really strong closing tracks. Not sure why I like that so much, but I do.

Too many bands let the LP tail off towards the end. Not good.

Yeah, I'd love to have a vinyl collection. It'd be so classy.

Though I'm 14, so I was growing up when CD's were new and cassettes were the 'in' thing.

By the way, I love Murray Street. Such a great album. My favourite track is Karenology, or Radical Adults. (I frikkin' love the horns on Radults!)
