Ok this is my first poll ever...

Partly inspired by Hip Priest's marvelous poll usage and some chit chat about the SYR's.

Also as far as I know there hasn't been a poll about them before so this should be interesting.

Go for it.

I say. You only let us choose one.
I like multiples. As far as getting my juices flowing, I've only fucked to 1-3.

Thanks, toxic. I've had practice on the Fall forum though, so I'm an old hand really!

I think SYR6 is a stupendous piece od work. It's certainly equal to if npot better than the best improvised work by other artists. At times it feels almost scored, but I suspect this is because the group were performing along to a selection of Stan Brakhage films and therefore had something to guide them.

Marvellous.

I haven't heard them all, but some of my favorite Sonic Youth songs are on SYR 5.

I only have SYR4...not a fan. I want to try some of the other ones though. I'll probably get whatever one wins this poll...so vote wisely.

I've only got the first SYR so I can't be sure. Heard parts of all of them though. Maybe SYR5 because its more noisey, Kim's SYR I call it.

Invito al Cielo is my favorite one...

I'd say:

1) SYR3: Invito al Cielo
2) SYR1: Anagrama
3) SYR6: Koncertas Stan Brakhage Prisiminimui
4) SYR4: Goodbye 20th Century
5) SYR5
6) SYR2: Slaapkamers met Slagroom

But they are all great (I gave them all 18/20 in my reviews)

the last time i was asked this on the old board, i chose syr3... now i don't know, i would have to listen to them again.
alas, the majority of my record collection - including all syrs but one - are far away from me at the moment... so i just cannot vote right now...

plus i still haven't managed to listen to syr6 because i could not find it in a shop... (and i don't want to order it, because i still assume i should be able to find it in a "real" record store)
