In 2002 I would have been torn between Karen Revisited and Radical Adults but in 2006 Sympathy For The Strawberry has won me over with it's sheer gorgeousness... also I've always really liked Plastic Sun

I'll go for Karen Revisited, because it's one of the most experimental
songs of SY, and I think that comes a little closer to King Crimson best years

Nice to see that every track has at least a couple of votes. That's the sign of a strong LP in my opinion. When an opener as strong as The Empty Page gets such a low percentage of the votes, you know that things on this LP are good.

Hard choice between Rain on Tin and Karen Revisited, but had to go with Rain on Tin. It's amazing, one of my fav SY tunes!

It's a hard decision, I like em all.
Radical Adults Lick Godhead Style stands out, along with Sympathy For The Strawberry.

Plastic sun makes alot of sense.

would have sworn i posted in this thread before, or maybe i'm thinking of 5 years ago on the old board

Radical Adults Lick Godhead Style, Thurston's poetry style can be hit or miss in the last ten years, this is lyrically one of his best of this century

The EU person is bland and featureless. He's a no-one in the eyes of the state, his individuality goes unrecognised. And he has a bizarre walk.

Am I way off the mark?

(I like the East German sign, by the way, I just see propaganda in all of them!)
Does this mean us americans are caught red-handed of some foul deed?

Karen Revisited has too much forgettable ambient noise, without that it would be my fav.

But as is, Sympathy for the Strawberry. Reminds me of waking up early in the morning and eating cereal.

Sympathy for the strawberry. It's absolute perfection.

Best album closer I've ever heard (along with Expressway of course)
