EVOL never did much for me; it's got some really great songs on it, but it seems much more inconsistent than Sister and DDN.

so hard! I'll have to go with sister I think. But those three are all of such high quality from start to finish.

I don't enjoy EVOL much, except Marilyn Moore.

EVOL has some really minor off spots, but it's sill very near a perfect album for me.

I'm going with Sister on this one. aside from Schiz, Catholic Block, SS, and White Kross, the songs really don't work for me. EVOL, while lacking AMAZING!, standout songs, is a solid album when taken as a whole.

Sister I think ... but somehow I can't bring myself to vote. It just seems so wrong,

Evol is my favorite of the three. While Bad Moon Rising is my favorite Sonic Youth album hands down (my favorite music album hands down, actually!) I really was impressed by the group for doing something completely different as a follow up. Sister is the "Sister" album to Evol, and Daydream Nation is a solidifying of that direction.

I hate voting for "least favorite" things though. Such a silly way to look at great art. Which is worse Guernica or Blue Nude? I prefer to focus on favorites rather than dwelling on what I "don't like as much."

Daydream Nation. BMR through Sister is my favorite run of albums from anybody, and I don't see why Daydream is supposedly so much better.

Sister probably, though it's really fucking awesome. EVOL is their best album and Daydream Nation could be a little bit more perfect than Sister. But it's hard.

daydreaming days in a daydream nation. I think it's one of my least-listened to SY albums.

DDN has the best lyrics of, well, any SY release in my opinion. There's a thematic consistency and a poetic, insightful beauty that's rare, not only for SY, but in rock music in general.
