I'm sorry/glad to inform you that it's the highlight of all my sonic youth live experiences (goodbye 20th century tour).
I can't even express how I felt after hearing that live...

btw, when I think about this album I "feel" a sense of spaciousness () and fullfilling emptiness ()
like floating on the sea at dawn


 

and shiny metal under the rain at night, and mirrors.
magic.

Wait, people actually like 'Lightnin'? I haven't listened to this album in a long time.

I like the music in Lightnin' but I think the vocals ruin it. It should have been an instrumental track

'StreamXsonik Subway' is one of those songs that is permanently linked to a memory for me, so much so that it's impossible to separate the two. And it's not a meaningful link, just one of those 'I happened to be listening to this song as I was performing this activity, and now the two are fused' scenarios.

In any case it's not a bad memory. It's just a random one. I was playing a lot of Mario 64 while listening to the album shortly after it came out. 'StreamXsonik Subway' just happened to come on while I was in the 'Lethal Lava Land' level where you're inside of the volcano making your way to the top, jumping from pole to pole way above the flaming base. It's those aerial pole jumps that are linked to the song the most, and vice versa.

brb starting a thread for this

this is my joint favourite record. its atmospheric, more inventive and after the guitar theft shows that they can continue in more interesting wats. having said that pretty much every record after bar parts of murray street sucks.

Fuckin, Lightnin should have started the record. I love the way Thurston "sings" Small Flowers Crack Concrete. It's a very moving performance.

i thought that it was the LEAST regarded album - it's the one that had that lass writing the review calling for them to split up out of fear that they'd sink to even more dispicable depths. that, coupled with similar if slightly less extreme reviews i'd read, and that the only song i'd heard on it, nevermind, had the worst lyrics i've ever come across (within music that i've actually chosen to listen to, rather than just being on the telly/radio/etc), meant that i gave it a seriously wide berth until the last couple of months...

i've discovered that it's pretty good, but i don't get the mindblowingness that the rest of the board seems to get. i think that it fits really nicely into the discography as an intermediary between atl and murray street, but it seems to be the least structured of the records and i personally see it as more syr than sy regular, too free and loose.

also i bet it pissed geffen right off when it got dropped to them to try and promote - wierdest record ever put out by a major label?

Probably a butthole surfers record or boredoms - pop tatari or white noise - an electrical storm or "Trout Mask Replica" or "Disco Volante" or....... well, there's been all kinds of weird albums put out by major labels over the years.

Definitely the weirdest one in more recent years though.
