ive always heard of the band but never got around to listening to them. i just now started listening to then nothing turned inside out because i saw it in the listening thread. i like it a lot. they have a huge catalog so i'm just wondering which album of theirs i should check out first

any suggestions?

That one is what I'd recommend first, then Electr-o-pura, then I Can Hear The Heart Beating as one. Can't really go wrong, I don't think.

Not that all the new people who've joined the board since shouldn't chime in, but for those who've already posted, why do so again.

The newest one ...Not Afraid of You... is excellent from top to bottom, imo.

You can always start with that and work your way backward.

There aren't very many shows in that site, but those you'll find there are really hot.

Wow, that was some pretty cool stuff. Yo La Tengo with Alex Chilton doing Wire and Kiss covers! Thanks!

My favorite Yo La Tengo album for some reason seems to be I Can Hear The Heart Beating as one. Electr-o-Pura is decent but not a solid throughout in my mind. My first YLT album though which I also like a lot is Summer Sun.

I'm torn with Yo La Tengo. Half their songs are amazing and the other half are boring as.

Soooooo
You should continue with Electropura
then Painful
then I can hear your heart beating

this the core of their output
but then they released a bunch of sophomore LPs before that
Ride the tiger, May I sing with me, Fakebook et alll.... I'm a bit less into these they're very good also.
The later stuff (I'm not afraid and Summer sun) are tad less inspired but man it's all good.
Good band, saw them live a couple of years ago and the dude ripped his guitar frantically, amazing. Far from groundbreaking but damn nice!!!!
GO!

I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One is one of my favorite albums ever... those songs are timeless.

I've only listened to five of their albums and would rank them like this:

1)I Can Hear the Heart Beating As One
2)Painful
3)I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass
4)President Yo La Tengo/New Wave Hot Dogs (2 in 1)
5)And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out

Very good band.

I'm surprised there's not a lot of people agreeing with me.
If you took the rocking songs off their holy trinity (Painful, Electr-o Pura, I can hear the etc) and put them onto an album, it'd be the best album of the 90's, I shit you not.
