Sister is probably their most consistent album, I prefer Daydream Nation though.

I don't understand how someone can single out Schizophrenia, White Cross, and Tuff Gnarl, the best tracks on the album, and say that they're overrated.

Sister, Evol and Bad Moon Rising are my least favorite SY records. To me I'd take Washing Machine and the SYR series (except 5) any day of the week........ Historically relevant, but artistically they've continued to push themselves and these records aren't particularly interesting to me..........

Catholic Block, Beauty Lies and Cotton Crown are fantastic tunes, but its really not remarkable as a collection of songs beyond that in ones humble opinion

It doesnt help that when i saw the band a couple of years ago the only song they played from that whole period (bar DDN as it was a DDN gig) was Schizophrenia.

Am I alone?

You're not alone. Osama Bin Laden, the devil and deaf people don't like Sister either.

It's not top 5 for me, but it's really solid.

I will confess though the "vintagey" sound quality really doesn't do a lot for me here. Which is odd because it does work for the albums before it.
