I don't know...they are both pretty good to me...

I'll say the Sprawl, but tomorrow I'd probably say 'Cross the Breeze.

I think I like The Sprawl better, the ending is just amazing. It starts out very energetic, by the end it lulls you.

The Sprawl is the conceptual pillar of the album but I probably enjoy 'Cross The Breeze more.

I really love the both equally,

Just finished reading Matthew Stearn's '33 1/3 Daydream Nation' book (Thanks to Sonicl). It was interesting but he had a totally different view of the songs to me. So much has been written about Sonic Youth writing 'New-York music' but to me Sonic Youth has always been about wide-open sprawling America. The canyons, death valley, endless suburbs. All there albums up until Goo were driving records, hitting the highway till the sun comes up. The Sprawl and Cross' The Breeze seemed to represent this more than any other songs on DDN.

'cross the breeze. it makes me want to drive fast and i like driving fast.

i also love the sort of homage it gets on blonde redhead's "fake can be just as good."

THE SPRAWL, because the ending is the most beautiful piece of music sonic youth have ever created.

From about 4 minutes 40 sec into the song to the end is just great!
