What is it that people love so much about EVOL. I find it okay, but it's definately nowhere near my favorite. i've noticed a lot of people have it as their favorite. ? Tell me how it turns you on.

cura has a couple of kiss-ass net friends
Its music and lyrics are great, but I don't think it's the best thing they made, it would be number 3 or even 4...

I really love the songs, and the atmosphere, but it doesent have the certain 'it' that BMR has, or Confusion...

I love it. I'm not very articulate when it comes to describing why I like music.

For me, just listening to Death to Our Friends and Secret Girl back to back makes me realize how great this album is. But, really, every song has something to it. It's one of my favorites.

This album is damn near my favorite for many reasons. The themes of this album are about experienceing things and newness I think. It relates a lot to teenage wildlife. Everything's new and seems exciting until it dies at around 25 or earlier. You have the love songs: Green Light and Starpower. You have the rockers: Bubblegum and Tom Violence. All of the other songs are damn brilliant as well. The rocking sonic narrative In the Kingdom #19 is brilliant. This entire album hints at Sister and beyond but is definitly its own thing. The cover is another great love of mine. LUNG LEG. You have to love that. Kim songs are just as strong as Thurston songs and overall it's really balanced out. SECRET GIRL!!!!! Totally eerie on Kim's part.....Like she's in an old attic full of used 1940's toys. The piano in the background is like a little music box.............completly creepy goodness. Shadow of a Doubt is great. Like witnessing a murder on a subway......not that that's good or anything but that's what it makes me think of. When Kim says "she knows how to make love to me" I always get a little stimulated. Overall, this record is amazing. I could go on about it but i think Ive said enough. Hopefully this gives you reasons to like this album.

Yeah, our favorites change all the time, but Evol is so awesome because of the crazy atmosphere, the music and lyrics are just so chilling. I love it.

And a little number called Expressway...

I'm not a huge fan of it. It's good, but not one of my favorites. I like CiS way more. I think Kingdom is actually the best song on the CD.

I don't know. Different music speaks to different people.

Chatham, you pretty much just summed it up there.

because of the atmosphere

i don't know, but it's got the vibe like 'shit, I did something VERY VERY VERY wrong but I can't tell"....

it's very Mullholland Drive-ish to me

I didn't know it was this popular amongst SY fans but I personally think it's really consistent. Definitely one of their best if not THE best.

It's definitely my favorite. It's the dark, noisy atmosphere of the album that (nearly) all other SY albums lack. Very moody and emotional

I thoroughly enjoy the record's music. However, I find the production a bit thin. I'm hoping for a deluxe, remastered edition in the vein of DN. All the original tracks 'warmed and thickened up' with bonuses, then disc 2 to be FAT tracks live. It's just that their 80s albums to me don't have the umphh in sound that I believe they can have with today's restoration.

I'm waiting for BMR to be upgraded too.
