great record, its odd because i don't think its very consistent (too many crappy songs like panty lies and little trouble girl) but the other songs diamond sea, skip tracer, washing machine, saucerlike) are so good that it doesn't matter...

Production wise, I'm not sure, it's always sounded a bit too bright and the bass sounds rubbery in places. I prefer the production on A Thousand Leaves.

Song-wise, Washing Machine is half a really great record, maybe a bit more than half.

Panty Lies is great... alot of people don't like it..

I love the drum beat break down and harmonix, really creepy vibe. The drumming on this entire song is amazing actually...

As for Little Trouble Girl, such a good song - the one piano note hit over the whole song, soft guitar... one of the great rare SY ballads.

Hear/Hear---(here?)

These were the two songs that turned me off for a while, but I really dig "Panty Lies" now for pretty much the reasons you stated, Lee's great guitar sounds and the overall creepiness.

"Trouble Girl", well -- it's unlike anything SY ever did before or after, and I sincerely question its choice as a follow-up single to "Diamond Sea", but it's a very spooky centerpiece to that album.

As for the production, it is near perfect. Just great sounds all around. Wish they hadn't mixed the fucking drums into one speaker for the first part of the title track, and I'm always confused when I hear Kim's guitar panned hard left w/ Lee down the middle, but I really do love the sound of this record. Unlike "Thousand Leaves" where the vocals are twice as loud as the music.

I love the tape hiss at the end of the title track...

Every album recorded at Easley Studios around that time (94-96) sounds fucking amazing,

Pavement - Wowee Zowee
Washing Machine
Silver Jews - Starlite Walker.

to name a few....didn't wilco record their around then too?

Well, I think you can guess my opinion of the album:
 

Although Little Trouble Girl sounds somewhat out-of-place, it's still an A+ collection of songs.

do people think Little Trouble Girl sounds that bad? I mean it goes with the flow great to me, perfect balancing out of the album.

I think songs like Plastic Sun and Mariah Carey sound more out of place to me,.. but both are still great songs and good breaks from the 7+minute guitar sprawls.
