you've only listened to the cd 2 or 3 times? you haven't even given it a proper chance.

I feel like in my opinion, I think NYC Ghosts & Flowers is actually their best album since Goo. But that's just my point of view

murray street is the slow boring one. half the songs are tepid wet noodles.

Nurse is fucking RAWKIN' and Rather Ripped is 3/4 delicious.

It's a really mediocre album, they have released so much better albums. Definetly the worst SY Record, I have heard by now.(Haven't heard all)
Best song on it is, Reena, which is in my opinion one of the best songs they have ever brought out.
Sometimes I really like the album, but other times (Most of the time) I hate it.

how do you know that? that is the kind of bullshit I expect from modern day r&b kids, listening to something twice then completely dismissing, going with popular opinion.

how do I know that? well, because I bought Rather Ripped and really tried hard to get into it and start loving it but it never came. It just did not.

i love sonic youth, by the way.

rather ripped is probally my least faorite album. but still, it kicks u2 ass all over the dirtied bathroom floor. blood stained tile sometthing fierce. tile bloody tile. i just heard the news today (i wish).


love,


-swa.

Have you listened to Achtung Baby ? Not all of U2's music is boring actually (probably a lot thanks to Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois though).

To stick to the topic I liked Rather ripped for a few listens, but then it wore off rapidly. Now I'm sure I don't like it (apart form Pink steam), especially when I hear songs from it played after DDN in its entirety.

I'm not sure if that makes sense technically. There are plenty of bands that I find even worse than U2.

U2 is not horrid music. it is just earnmest jesus rock, and older people love it because it makes them feel alive.

I hate it.

you tried 'really hard' by listening to THREE TIMES? please....

it's hard to get into something when it sits on a shelf gathering dust dude. nevermind, you don't want to like this album, you've got a very firm opinion on it that won't ever budge. well done.
