Ive just realised what a great record this is. Ive had it for years, one of the first SY records i got, but i hardly every listened to it and thought it sucked ass. But recently, due to the fact that ive overplayed every other SY record ive started 2 groov to this one. An my gawd its really somehing else. Really fucking genious. Contre Le Sexisme "Hes soo...quiet....Alice, Alice come back....hes just a kitten.....HES JUST A KITTTEN" Also the guitar riff acompaning it is just sweeet. My favorite on the album is wildflower soul. This was one of my most despised songs when i first heard it. But now i love it 2 bits. The bridge part is definately one of my fav sy moments. French Tickler and hoarfrost are very cool indeed. And i love the looong jam section in Hits of sunshine. Really good for a blazing session, as is Snare girl. I could trip for hours with these. I lov singin along "im here for youuu...cant u seeeeee....wht im doing......i bring...." I really love this album...loadss

I could see how one might think that, but I disagree. Murray Street was just as amazing....

i think by murray street, sonic youth had lost their unique sound of the previous records...but evolved further into a different style of music. Its like that with every sonic decade. the 80s were very dreary and atonal...the ninetys were more sparkley beautiful...and now, its more arty than ever.

Thats just my opinion.

I can't see how someone could dislike this album. Every track is an absolute journey. & what a great way to start an album then w/ "Contre Le Sexisme".

Here's an IMO rating of the album:

Contre Le Sexisme ** (out of 3)
Sunday ***
Female Mechanic Now On Duty **
Wildflower Soul ***
Hoarfrost **
French Tickler ***
Hits Of Sunshine (For Allen Ginsberg) **
Karen Koltrane ***
The Ineffable Me ***
Snare Girl ***
Heather Angel ***

& not to mention, this record has some of the greatest lyrics of all-time.

Hoarfrost is a beauty. The video fits it as well.

I don't think the 80's were atonal, SY always played tonal music, i mean everysong on Sister and DDN has a key of its own.

Yup, it's one hell of a good record. I really like Sunday. Thats a great song. Lee's solo is womderful, goin all crazy with the slide. Hits of Sunshine for Allen Ginsburg was a little bit tediously long, but I absolutely love the LSD reference in the title.

what's really sad is that I still haven't bought this record. I'm really looking forward to the day I buy it.

That being said I still really like hoarfrost's video. Any video full of wintry images will instantly win me over.

segerandpriest has a couple of kiss-ass net friends
both 1,000 leaves and washing machine have songs that begin with kinda throwaway punk riffs that give way - with varying degrees of subtlety - to beautiful, can-like vamps that are major-key, but not quite so clean and melodic as the present-day vamps.

I've had this cd for a few years now, actually bought it on the street in Bangkok. Yeah it's a shame but I combined two passions, travelling and sy.

Anyway it's really good but it's loooooooong. I find it too much to listen to the whole thing in one session, but then you get to rediscover some songs that are amazing but forgot about. Karen Koltrane comes to mind.

one of the first ones i bought. I recently just got back into it as well. It truly is an amazing album. The bridge in wildflower soul is my favorite sy moment too. Every song is amazing. I think my least favorite is hits of sunshine. I really started to like heather angel a few weeks ago.
