i get the feeling most of you don't like this album. prove me wrong! only thing i don't like about it is the cover.

Its alright, and the cover is alright. Its never been an album where I've felt there is much to discuss.

It is a pretty good listen, and Bull In The Heather has to be one of SY's greatest songs. However, it is an album in the generic brainless sense- a collection of songs. They don't flow or link at all, and theres nothing profound about the record, not like Daydream Nation or Washing Machine. To be honest, far more can be expected of SY - but hell, did they deliver on the record after...

It's one of the better albums of the 90's era.

Who told you that fans hate it? Just because it isn't mentioned as "the masterpiece" (like Daydream Nation)?
Critics liked it a lot and somehow, it was a way back to noisy roots (after the popy "Goo" & "Dirty")...
I like it a lot (Especially "Self-obsessed and sexee", one of my all-time favs) but "Washing Machine" is better, indeed...

i like it a lot.

i like that sy have enough records that you can have 'personal favourites' which wont normally get mentioned, as well as more kind of accepted classics like washing machine or ddn or murray street or whatever...
like the beatles! or miles davis! they are like little gems waiting to be discovered after you get through the more obvious ones.

I think it's their worst set of songs. The early 90s were an awful period for the Yoof imo.

i never see any sonic youth songs as bad. because the ones i called bad before, i ended up liking a lot on a certain day or mood.

the first album of theirs to be released while I was a fan so itll always be very special to me. when dirty came out all my friends were playing it constantly but I didnt "get it" till the next year.
