I have a good feeling about what the next SY album could be like. Rather Ripped was, I believe, another SY album that started life as a prototype Thurston solo album. Now that T has got the urge to write a solo album out of his system, I predict an SY album that is more of a group effort, and is correspondingly brilliant.

Fingers crossed...

I felt that the real problem with RR is that SY didn't have anything to say.
They just made it because they had to. They didn't put enough time and emotions into their work.
Hopefully they will have something to say with this one and they will find the time together to explore some new ideas.

No I agree. I thought some of the lyrics were a bit generic for SY.

Nevermind another ''experimental'' effort, it would be cool to hear another ace Sonic Youth album, since the last two were a disappointment. Like atsonicpark said, I too have a feeling that this might be a good one. Thanks for the news, Moshe.

Yeah, it is. The only person I know who has shown interest in SY was a friend of mine - they listened to Goo, and their favourite song was My Friend Goo.

So maybe they'll come back with a more experimental album... Look, back in 1995 they released a really pop album, Washing Machine, after a serie of pop records, and then they took three years to write A Thousand Leaves, which was preceded by SYRs, and A Thousand Leaves is far more experimental.

Now they're probably gonna release this on 2009 which means three years after Rather Ripped, a pop record, and they're about to release two new SYRs.

I predict a harsh noise / jazzcore album coming

Despite a lot of catchy songs, I think Washing Machine is a very experimental song. Don't forget that "Diamond Sea" was the biggest "hit" from that album (including the song they made a video for)! The title track is also awash with noisy goodness (pun semi-intended...)

Washing Machine came on the tail of their arguably least experimental album to date (the one with "experimental" in the title, those wacky kids!) and after that one and Dirty, WM was totally a return to Sonic "we ain't gonna break in the charts so we better stop trying and just do what we do best" Youth. Sure it's got "Becuz", but A Thousand Leaves has got "Sunday" which is significantly more poppy really.

Which all doesn't mean you might not be right about what they'll do next (never can tell with them, thankfully). I just hate to see my favorite album from the '90s (except arguably SYRs 3 & 4) mis-characterized.

Thurston as Luke: We should try and make a more ambitious album.
Steve as Yoda: No, try not. Do or do not.....there is no try.
