Then I would not recommend the SYR for you.

Despite defending Rather Ripped as so so and not awful, it doesn't even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as NYC Ghoss & Flowers. Given your encounter with Lee, I can't imagine how you could see the title track as anything short of completely impassioned. That's Lee's most impassioned bit of lyricism ever.

I wouldn't quite say that, but I couldn't pick a best or even personal favorite. I could easily see an argument for it being their most "impassioned", however.

Yep. NYC Ghosts & Flowers is my favorite SY song - and my favorite song of all bands actually. And I would probably say it's also my second favorite album, behind Bad Moon Rising

I've been to 5 and they were all great in their own way.
The Washing Machine gig was odd because they played on Melvins gear
and didn't sound like they normally do.

I liked Rather Ripped. And when I saw them playing it live Thurston and Lee sounded good, but Kim didn't sound so hot. But when I saw them play Daydream Nation, everyone was phenomenal.

Rather Ripped was just a fun collection of pop songs, if you're looking for something on a deeper level like EVOL or NYC G+F then of course you won't like it.

I'll listen to ghosts and flowers again today. I've only listened to it once (third album I got by them, after daydream). And I remember feeling so let down.

I remember liking three songs, finding two meh, and not liking the rest much at all.

Free City Rhymes- Pretty cool song. Reminds me on some level of really early sonic for some reason. Lyrics are kind of dumb though (easily the album's weakenss if my memory is serving me correctly which it apparently wasn't before)

Conclusion: NYC Ghosts and flowers has about four good songs, two of which are really really (very) good.
4 decent/ok songs.
And one song I don't like much at all (streamxsonicsubway).

Over all not a bad album, just not the greatness I've come to love from Sonic.
