their personalities really come through on The Eternal. Quasi-religious Thurston, introspective Lee, daring Kim, and bad-ass Steve keeping it all together.

I have been disappointed by SY before, like all of you I am sure, but th Eternal doesn't disapoint me.

Maybe you need to see what's changd about the world. That always helps m when figuring out new SY records. I mean, noise has fallen away and now is a time of a folk resurgence (I don't really know what I am talking obout here...) SY n The Eternal is tight, focused, zany and fun.

Eternal is a solid album, but probably my least favourite in a while. I liked Rapper Ripped for the catchy poppy melodies, Sonic Nurse for the intricate guitar work, Washing Machine and 1000 Leaves and NYC for the amazing experimentation. This one just seems to be a bit bland - perhaps the first album in their career where they are just resting??

I actually agree, Murray St was pretty bland, Nurse was far superior

for real, could have prob used one more long track. But will Karenology, Radical Adults and Strawberry are rad.

I loved Murray Street a long time ago. I find a lot of it a bit bland now. Still has precisely 2 of my favorite SY songs ever ("Strawberry" and "Rain on Tin").

I LOVE The Eternal, it's my favourite LP of 2009 so far. But it's not as good as Sonic Nurse. That is a classic SYLP, make no mistake. It might end up beating Murray Street. Maybe. I fucking love it, mind (The Eternal & Battery Park LPs). Antenna is an ace tune, I can't wait to hear it live....

Nice to meet someone with ears. Its true, its the most stupid thing they ever did. I remember, when i first listened to sy and someone entered my room, i felt embaressed caus i knew he/she/it would be pertubed about the noise. Now i feel the same, but because of the stupid melodies - as if someone would see me dancing to Christina Aguilera. But i like to see how they enjoy playing it. And i DO like almost 1 Minute of Walkin Blue, 30 Seconds of Malibu Gas Stations, 10 Seconds of No Way - and some of Massage the History too.

I'm stunned... I mean other than daydream they don't really have an ablum that's genuinely great the whole way through, with no tracks you really wanto to skip.
Opinions are opinions but in this case, I think you're just wrong.

are you serious?

I know I'll catch hate, but DDN isn't even in my Top 10 SY albums dude. There's so many others that I think are so beyond perfection... namely the one in my avatar.

I meant after ddn. All the other albums after ddn have definite trash on them. They are all msotly great albums, just not without their trash. How is ddn not in your top ten?

It's just not. I don't know. I know I'm a minority, but I think DDN is (gasp) a bit over-rated in the SY cannon.

MURRAY STREET is easily in my Top 10 though. THE DESTROYED ROOM may be as well. Probably.

Just being straight up based on my own personal listening habits.

WEll destroyed room is a compilation, and while it doesn't really have any weak points, it just doesn't stack up as classic to me.
Yeah... I guess I didn't think about Murray Street. Murray Street is incredible, but I find the Eternal alot more enjoyable.
