Recently, I've been listening to tonnes of Kim's stuff now that I have Washing Machine and Jet Set, and they contain (in my opinion) some of her best stuff. Songs like Sweet Shine simply amaze me. When I first got into Sonic Youth, I really didn't like her voice at all, and now I think she's one of my favorite vocalists. She has a very unique singing style.

The question asks for favourite, so it's Kim. If it was for best in an objective sense it would have been Lee.

I like them all equally. They all bring something different to the table as vocalists, and I can't imagine any of their songs being sung by another member.

But you know when I really enjoy Kim's vocals? When she's not so much screaming or shouting, but when she's almost whispering. Like on "Love You Golden Blue", "Shadow of a Doubt", "Sympathy for the Strawberry", etc.

It's a tie between Kim and Lee, but man, Steve has a SEXY voice. I was listening to the Whitey Album for the first time last night and "Me and Jill" came on, and I was wondering who was the man with such a cool and smooth voice. Steve has to talk more.

Well Lee would have to be my least favourite, hands down. I went for Thursdon because he has the attitude without going into the hyper abrasive territory that Kim tends towards sometimes.
That said, stuff like Halloween, Brave Men Run, Sweet Shine, The Sprawl, I Wanna Be Your Dog, Shoot, Becuz & it goes on & on...

Yes, Steve should sing songs... Well, I like them equally, but if I had to choose, I think I'd say Lee.

I voted Thurston. He has so many different styles of singing, whereas Lee can't really sing very much, he sorta sing-speaks (I love his songs though). And Kim... well early Kim vocals were quite good but she can really get on my nerve sometimes (sorry Kim).
