I liked "Heatehr Angel" from the moment I heard it. It's one of the greatest closing tracks ever.

Hits of Sunshine is a masterpiece.

I still haven't gotten this album. I need A Thousand Leaves and Experimental to have all the major albums.

"Suburbia" is a great movie, w/ a decent soundtrack as well. Wasn't a track from "Psychic Hearts" in that movie?

I'll have to get the soundtrack for this movie. BTW, "A Thousand Leaves" is an excellent record, w/ amazing lyrics. Some of Thurston's best work. (IMO)

This was actually one of the last SY records I got, tho sunday was my frist favorite sy song. I don't listen to it all too much because it's sooooo long. But When I do it's great. I remember once I was listening to it really baked and this one kim song was far too intense, I had to throw off my headphones and skip the song. Same deal with wildflower soul's loud intro/outro.

What's the kim song that goes "free time free time' I really like that one

this was my first sonic youth album along with dirty. it was the first sonic youth album i ever loved. strangely, i don't listen to it all that often either. don't even know why. it's still one of my favorites.

I met someone today who only owns one Sonic Youth album.
That album is (of course, per the thread) A Thousand Leaves.

He told me that he bought it because he liked the Rolling Stone review. (My theory is he bought it on the heels of the initial SYR excitement).
And he told me that he burned a cd-r from it purposely excluding the tracks that the Rolling Stone review described as filler.

Sonic brethren, I implore you to be as appalled as I am.
Now I realize that this sort of thinking is unfortunately all too commonplace, but yet I still find it disturbing nonetheless.

Furthermore, I looked up the RS ATL review and it makes no mention of which songs the reviewer considers filler material. There is a shot taken at a lyric in "Contre Le Sexisme," however.
The album is given three-and-a-half stars which is a fairly good rating, but the write-up itself is hardly glowing either.

Spin magazine doesn't have an online review for the album, so I can't check that one in case the guy is just mixed-up.

Anyway, just thought this little slice of SY-themed demographic research might be interesting to someone out there reading.

Listen to the album and write a review.
