it would feel wrong to systematically rate each of their releases in one list. they're all unique, and i don't think ranking them actually says much about my reaction to any of them.

i will admit that daydream nation is my favorite. former favorites include a thousand leaves and sister. those two are still up around there somewhere, along with murray street, evol, and dirty.

Talk to almost anyone else who is not a hardcore SY forum nerd, and they'll agree with me.

completely misinformed opinion again. why are you consistently berating people because of their view points, you dont have the authority or the right to do so, please stop because every fucking thread you start starts a slagging match between you and someone. now im not starting to slag you off or anything because i dont know you from adam but please, stop being so confrontational and folk may get to like you..... and im a hardcore sy fan and have been for nearly 18 years and i prefer the earlier stuff but rather ripped is a good album for sonic youth, and a great one for any other band.

That cracks me up. It's like when a racist says 'Now, I'm not a racist or anything..'

I don't think the opinion is misinformed.

And I don't think they're worried about getting folks to like them.
