"Screaming Fields Of Sonic Love" and "Hits Are For Squares" are both, essentially, greatest hits albums.

I kind of agree with this.

Greatest hits are good if you don't own any music by whatever band and want a collection of good stuff. I find though, on many greatest hits albums that they aren't the songs I really really enjoy.

i have only nine albums not inclding the syrs and i want to collect all sixteen or seveteen but in my opinion most of the time greatest hits cds suck but are always the finishing peice to any bands collection

Well at the moment they haven't released anything since "Hits Are For Squares" came about, so I'd say it is a career-long retrospective. So far.

hey, you started with that middle finger, young man.

now go to your room and stop thinking about greatest hits...which, by the way, if it happened, would only include "kool thing" since that's their only hit.

hahahahaha "get off this board"

hahahahahahahahahahaha.

a hit means a song that has been played on the radio and is bought enough so that it makes the charts of the most played/sold songs at the moment, and as awesome as sy's music is, pretty much none of it has charted.

learn your terms, sonny.

you should leave this board if you think you need a greatest hits to really like a band.

Everyneurotic strikes again...

What a piece of work. I told him he could have a free Greatest hits CD but In exchange he'd have to let me spend an evening with his Mexican grandmother...

this thread could have been so much cooler if you all just shut up and listed what you would think would be an awesome greatest hits track list

like personal hits but retrospective list

Greatest Hits are good maybe for lame mainstream rock bands who are built off singles.

Needless to say, that's not Sonic Youth.

You make it sound like Sonic Youth aren't mainstream. Anyways I've seen greatest hits put out by some great bands just as relatively known as Sonic Youth. Ear-Bleeding Country is a pretty great "best of" compilation.
