Statrted off with Dirty, over the years I've gotten more into their more recent stuff. Think its because I've lost that young adult angst.

I once heard Evol, Sister and Daydream Nation described as "The Holy Trinity," and it's hard to disagree. I would keep those three consecutive albums before anything else they've done.

kinda tough....era's as in string of consecutive albums....for me....

Goo-A Thousand Leaves....so I guess that'd be the 90s. But that's not to discount there earlier or later material....I spose I'm considered a commercial sellout admirer, huh ?

Daydream Nation.

This album started it all for me and it was the soundtrack for one of the best and most fun times in my life. Times that I will never forget.

i think you're on crack to put thousand leaves and nyc ghosts and flowers together!! they are SO different. i looove thousand leaves and really dislike nyc ghosts (except for lee's song). thousand leaves and murray st i will pop in as regularly as any sy record, but nyc ghosts and sonic nurse, almost never. probably never.

ps. i voted for daydream, but it's hard to think of a flaw between evol and thousand leaves!

good way of looking at it - the last few years have been better for me than my twenties, I guess they're noughty albums are the soundtrack to my best times. Basically WM onwards is what I listen to most.

I voted for sister but generally would go for the BMR thru to DN era. There are later and earlier albums that I might prefer (CIS for example) but as a period the Blast First era is what I instinctively think of when I think of the band.

The earlier Geffen era (Goo, Dirty, EJSTNS) is probably my least favourite. It seems to me that during that period they weren't sure where to go and as a result were too keen to respond to developments taking place in the Grunge and Riot Grrl scenes. In a sense, this was a period where they became followers rather than leaders. They wanted to hang with 'the kids' a little too much and at times it got a little embarrasing.
