Yeah, I think both of those tracks are pretty shitty. But ''bubblegum" is a little better to me.

I see Master-Dik as a track which is supposed to be amusing, but loses its novelty value after one or two listens. On the other hand, I think Bubblegum is great. Probably my favourite of SY's covers.
I voted for EVOL. In terms of 1980s Sonic Youth, I think it's their definitive album - a mix between the early darker stuff, and the later more accessible stuff. Plus the album cover is one of their best.

This is truly one of those questions to which there is no wrong answer.

I picked EVOL since I listen to it more often.

EVOL every step of the way! Sister is clearly great too, but there's no competition here for me. EVOL is in strong competition for my favourite SY album, wheras Sister wouldn't make the top 5...

It's wierd actually, because I've always wished I could really love Sister, but somehow, however hard I try, something about it just never really clicks with me.

Sister is perfect except for 'Hotwire My Heart', Evol is Perfect except for 'Bubblegum', but to me Sister just means a lot more, hence the vote for Sister.

EVOl sans the bonus track bubblegum is indeed, a perfect album.

I would have to say Sister is a tad better, but I voted EVOL becase I wanna see an EVOL vs. DDN final.


Bad Moon Rising > EVOL anyone?
