worst sonic youth album ever; some songs are ok, but considering the quality of their output, "some ok songs" is more like "utter shit"; i can't help but think that, had they taken the time to develop them more musically and cut some of the more blantant crappy songs, it would have made for a stronger album.

i predict they probably won't be playing any songs off it live in 5 years.

experimental jet set, trash and no star is my favorite 90's sonic youth record. i love it for some reason. rather ripped is a different story.

Experimental, bad. 1994
Rather Ripped, bad. 2006.
I hope it's another twelve years before their next stinker.

rather ripped kicks ass.

it is only "bad" in comparison to other sonic youth gems, not to the rest of the music other than sonic youth from 2006.

EJSTNS is great, Rather Ripped is good. There's some really great tunes on Rather Ripped, Rats or Jams Run Free for instance are gems in my opinion. It might be one of their weakest, but it's still a very good album; it's just that it's a very good album amongst masterpieces. I enjoy it

I wonder why people always mention EJSTNS when talking about bad SY albums. "Dirty" is their worst album as far as I'm concerned. Just too generic.

This is close to being the worst though.

"Or" is my favorite single song since "Sunday", otherwise it was a pretty big let down after the awesomeness of Nurse.

shit yeah. the Rather Ripped tour was amazing. Pink Steam, Turquoise Boy, Jams Run Free...... those songs sounded incredible! The band were so into it aswell - Kim was going off dancing around the stage. brilliant stuff.

swa(y), you know why you rock? (even though I disagree with your statement)

Because you said:

That "i think" makes all the difference. That's all.

Also I think Sonic Nurse is by far better than Rather Ripped, even if I like Rather Ripped, Sonic Nurse has so many great songs

"i think" is often implied. it's a bitch to always have to remind people that something is JUST, LIKE, YOUR OPINION, MAAAAN.

I know (sometimes it's not, though). And tolerance sucks too. But I found it cool, that's all. No problem.
