Opinions are opinions but in this case, I think you're just wrong.

its def consistent with walking blue being the best track but doesnt have the orgasmic highs (and lows) of the other albums. no parts that make you sit there in a stupor wondering what the fuck just happened.

Yeah... I guess I didn't think about Murray Street. Murray Street is incredible, but I find the Eternal alot more enjoyable.

I consider compilations of previously unreleased material to be albums. And for some reason DR is really special to me.

Yeah I can agree with that. I don't know, Malibu Gas Station and Antenna, while not mindblowing per se, are pretty damn great.

I'm not arguing there. I fucking Love THE ETERNAL. I think it's one of their best albums of the last decade, along with the other 2 I mentioned and NYCG&F.

I think the track order on the Eternal is wrong. I think it is very good (better than RR, not as good as SN) but it would be much better with a different running order.

Sacred Trickster
Antenna
What We Know
No Way
Calming The Snake
Anti Orgasm
Walking Blue
Poison Arrow
Malibu Gas Station
Thunderclap
Massage The History

Or somrthing like that. And yes, taking off Leaky Lifeboat

Wait what? I genuinely consider both EVOL and Sister to be completely perfect releases.

What tracks could one possibly want to skip on either of those albums?

He already said he meant the albums after DDN.

But since you asked.. Hotwire My Heart.

Haha.

I just meant, he didn't make the cover art specifically for the album... since he's.. y'know.. dead.

To mysonichaircut: If you're embarrassed about the music you like, you should really evaluate yourself and stop being so self-conscious.

To o'connor: So The Eternal doesn't sound like Sonic Youth to you? What does sound like Sonic Youth? Sleepin Around and The Neutral? Why wouldn't you want to hear something different?

To badgercorn: I really dislike your order preference. Also by the way, Leaky Lifeboat is an essential track, which a lot of fans love. I think the song order flows magnificiently.

To noisereductions: Daydream Nation isn't in my top 10 either. Actually, it's more like #9 but I feel you.
