Is there any love for Wildflower Soul? The part where it goes from kooky slippin' and slidin' back into that manic intro is one of the best SY moments imo.

I'm a bit odd I know. I copied and pasted everyone's lists (off all 9 pages) into a spread sheet. I tallied them up. This is what happened. Of course "votes" aren't really votes, they're "mentions". Forgive me.

This upsets me. Folks do realize that Sonic Youth had some really good albums AFTER 1995 right?? RIGHT??

Yea and I suppose you think 2pac(kets) was the greatest rapper of all time? pfff. We all know that this accolade belongs to the one, the only Bob Marley. He sang that great song Straight Outta Compton which featured great composition and melodic structure but most all mystery...because no-one actually knows if he really made this song or not. It's like the Area 51 mystery. But this myth was proved true after the release of the 1990 Megadeth album Rust In Peace which had a photo of an Alien on it's cover proving that Aliens do exist in Area 51. So really it's more of a...why is water wet mystery.

Personally, I'd replace "Teenage Riot" with "Pattern Recognition" if that makes you feel better.

Lack of Lee songs is a little more upsetting.

I agree, it is impossible to make one list. Although I pretty much still stand by the earlier post that I made on this thread, I decided to make a top 10 list of songs for each decade they were active. Though somewhat creepily, each list ended up being exactly 14 songs (I decided to only include album/EP songs, if I had included b-sides, the 90's list in particular would be even longer than it already should be).

1980's: Protect Me You, Inhuman, Brother James, Intro/Brave Men Run (In My Family), Tom Violence, Expressway To Yr. Skull, Schizophrenia, The Sprawl/'Cross The Breeze, Candle, Eric's Trip/Hey Joni/Rain King.

1990's: Disappearer, Cinderella's Big Score, Theresa's Sound-World/Chapel Hill, Wish Fulfillment, JC, Bull In The Heather/Doctor's Orders/Sweet Shine, Starfield Road, Skip Tracer, The Diamond Sea, Sunday, Hoarfrost.

2000's: Nevermind (What Was It Anyway), NYC Ghosts & Flowers, Disconnection Notice/Rain On Tin, Karenology, Unmade Bed/Stones, I Love You Golden Blue, Reena, Pink Steam, Sacred Trickster/Massage The History, Antenna, What We Know.
