Adam:
You'll notice it loads on last.fm

I'm not saying you guys dislike RR for that reason, but it undoubtedly happens a lot in this age of "now now now". Case in point: Quaristice

Rather Ripped is a meh album. Quite thoroughly meh that it almost defines meh.

I can't say it is the worst because it's just so meh.

I think Dirty has the title but I got rid of that so I can't quickly re-evaluate.

Well, again, maybe we're not going to the same shoutboxes.

Never heard any Quarastice hatred except on this board. I thought everyone agreed it was a strong album. I think Autechre just gets better with every release, personally (with Draft being my personal favorite).

The one that really gets me on the Eternal is "Leaky Lifeboat". I have listened to that song alone quite a few times. It's brilliant. I like the whole album, but that one really gets me for some reason. It's not just the harmonics.

I've been hanging around WATMM a bit more lately and all I read on the Autechre board is fans whining about Quaristice being shit. If Autechre released an album of white noise as a follow up, I can imagine perspectives will change.

I think perspective has a lot to do with how much one enjoys an album. There was a lot of complaining about Sonic Nurse until RR came out.

Maybe you're onto something. I think we're mainly talking about musicians that are pretty popular though.

Perhaps people give more of "the benefit of the doubt" to smaller bands. Like, you never heard a super obscure noise release coming out and someone going "MAN IT JUST DIDN'T HAVE AS MUCH HARSH STATIC AS THE LAST ALBUM!" For whatever reason, it seems that people into, uh, "smaller" and more "out-there" music is often less critical of the music that bands make. Of course, it's a completely different atmosphere, as those bands may release something 2 or 3 times a year compared to Sonic Youth, who release a new album every 2/3 years.

So, yeah, I guess it has more to do with the build up, the anticipation of the release. My solution is just not to get excited about anything. Maybe that's why I actually enjoy the Eternal. I wasn't expecting much.

Yeah, I see what you mean with smaller bands. I remember when Battles released Mirrored and everyone loved it. Only months later was it trendy to hate it.

I'm not sure how it is possible to claim an album is the best or worst of a discography that spans 16 full length studio albums plus a tonne of side projects.....less than a DAY after hearing it for the first time. It's the worst form of internet attention seeking, and it works every time.

I don't think SY has a 'worst album'. But they have made albums I haven't fallen in love with: NYCG&F, A Thousand Leaves...

I agree about Dirty, a powerful record start to finish. Over-bashed for sure. I saw them play it live and it was a sight & sound fury. I completely disagree with XJST&NS. First off, the packaging is cool as f. Secondly, listen carefully to the bass lines, they are masterful. The only drawback to this record is the absence of a Lee track.

EJST&NS is the only sonic youth album, EP, side project, solo record I do not enjoy.
