Ok, if you were stranded on a desert island for life and could ONLY pick between having Goo + Dirty versus A Thousand Leaves + NYCG&F with you, which pair would you take?

For me it would be Goo + Dirty hands down. How about you?

Really hard decision. But I think I will take ATL & NYCG&F, just because I think ATL is one of the greatest SY-Records, so I think I will have longer time fun with those two. Even I really love also Goo & Dirty, I think I will get bored them earlier than those other two.

Dirty and Goo

But why only those choices?

I'd want to mix & match, probably a late 80's early 90's album with a late 90's early 2000's album. What if you could only listen to s/t and The Eternal and nothing in between?

In my time as a SY fan, both on and off these boards, I see a certain faction of people devalue/under appreciate Goo + Dirty, while artificially propping up ATL + NYCG&F. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion and there's no accounting for taste, but I'll take Goo + Dirty over the others 10 out of 10 times.

Well, I havenīt ever devalue Goo neither Dirty. Goo was my first Sonic record I heard, so it has a special place in my heart. And it sounds still as great as then. Dirty was first I heard right after it came, so it is also very special to me still.

We got into SY at EXACTLY the same time! A friend let me borrow Goo for a few weeks and I got hooked! Dirty was the first SY release I actively looked forward to coming out and The Pretty Fucking Dirty Tour was the first time I saw them live (Boston, October 1992). Maybe all of this has something to do with my opinion/preference??

I saw SY in Finnish television maybe 1989 (I think it was little after DDN has released). They showed program named Snub where was just alternative bands. From sy there was Teenage Riot-video, also Providence came. And there was a little interview. I wasnīt very impressed then, but I think year after that I read review about Goo & decided to buy it as christmas present to my brother. Well, it was me who was more excited about it! But anyway, itīs same time! I am really depressed Iīve never seen them live (they have been only 3 times in Finland).

There is tendency to under-value Goo and Dirty and EJSTNS here I think because of their mainstream appeal. There are some who don't think those albums represent the band best, and were mostly made to aim for a wider fanbase at just the time when their kind of music which they had been playing for a good ten years was getting attention. There may be some truth to that opinion but I don't think it takes away the listenability of those albums.

Quite soon after recording Dirty to cassette (also had recorded DDN which I borrowed from the library) I ordered my first Sonic vinyl, Sister. Found it also really great and quite soon that ordered EVOL, BMR & Sonic Death. Maybe Sister and specially EVOL are little bit more unconventional with their song structures as DDN, Goo & Dirty, but anyway I found them all sounding really same, Sonic Youth. BMR & Sonic Death sounded of course different, I think in BMR they almost find their own true sound. I liked those too already then. EJSTNS was at first disappointment to me, cause it has lack of melodic songs that are typical all the albums after BMR.
