Thanks for all the feedback, everyone. It sounds like almost every album has been recommended by someone, and there's no consensus. It will take a while, but I'll give some of those a try and let you know how it goes.

I started with Washing Machine and can say that I definitely like The Diamond Sea--minus the 15+ minutes of unnecessary noise. The first non-Experimental song I like--yay! Too early to judge the rest of that album as I always need a lot of time to let music fully soak in.

Before I saw SY play live I never enjoyed the noise jam parts of songs.

The "noise" is what I first fell in love with when I heard Daydream nation....

My favorite 4 minutes of sonic youth is the last 4 minutes of MOTE

I really have always loved Diamond Sea! After singing period there is really first that "sound sea" I really enjoy that, then those wondeful guitar feedbacks! Also really love that longer backward ending.

For me it's the part where Silver Rocket hits the skids and fragments into shards only to fuse together again like the liquid-metal cop from Terminator 2.

This came to mind immediately for me as well from my first listening of Daydream Nation in the year of our Lord 1999. Can't imagine being able to stomach a full SY album without possessing a certain penchant for noise (even if it's dormant) from the get-go.

Can I just add that EJSTNS is one of my favourite all-time albums. By anyone ever. To me it's just so perfect that this album came out in '94 at the height of commercial grunge. I mean that just adds to it, there's so much more to its allure than that... but it's ineffable, of course, so I shan't pontificate further...

I find this thread funny is all. I don't mean to insult you or anything. It's humorous to me that you absolutely loved this album yet...didn't like a single song in DDN....

I'm not good with words. so I just say....lol.

it's hard to like "experimental, jet set" as a whole. "tokyo eye" and "sweet shine" are so different. if you like the howling guitar of "tokyo eye", older fans like me will redirect you to "eliminator JR" and if you like the tenderness of "sweet shine" you will be advised to listen to "contre le sexism". in conclusion "Exp, jet set" is more than an album. it's a "best of", a crossroads in which each song can find a soulmate in another SY album. the two others album that I understand someone can not like are "washing machine" because it's too erotic and "sonic nurse" because it's too sad, but for daydream nation and Dirty i don't understand that someone can not like them

I like Experimental as a whole. As a matter of fact I like every SY-album as a whole, I think theyīre all really strong entities (of course almost every album has some weaker song like Sister has Hot Wire, but really I canīt think Sister without Hot Wire). Hard to understand why someone thinks Washing Machine erotic or Nurse sad. I havenīt find much erotic in SY (yes, I know there is that dirty picture in some dirty cd-versions and or course there is something erotic in Flower and yes, Addicted To Love-vid is erotic). Also I think there is much sad in every SY-album. Thatīs the one reason why it is my favourite band.

thanks for pointing me this out, I never noticed it. it's true that the most erotic song of sonic youth is "on the strip" but "washing machine" has a languorous sound that is one of the reasons why I don't listen to it anymore. and for the sadness of nurse it's at least melancholic according to the titles of the songs "unmade bed" and "i love you golden blue" and also the video of the man disguised in frog

I think I donīt understand you at all. On the strip is one of my favourite SY-songs (I have never understood the lyrics of it like most of SY-songs). Washing Machine is one of my favourite Sy-albums. Also I love you golden blue is one of my favourite Sy-songs. But anyway, itīs just opinions and they always differ.
