Fantastic band. I think Fake Train is my favorite, but it's hard to say. Repetition and Leaves Turn Inside You are almost as good... and probably New Plastic Ideas as well. A extremely consistent band.

This is the best thing ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyFLIK9kP2U

I accidently bid on "leaves turn inside you" on ebay about 6 or seven years ago. because it was titled something like "Leaves unwound Promodisc Sonic Youth". I thought I was bidding on a thusand leaves.
but it turns out to be the best bid-accident I could make.
Love the first half of the album. really I love it!

Yeah, I recently got Leaves Turn Inside You and Repetition, and Leaves is good, but not great. As of right now, I definitely prefer Repetition.

Repetition is still my favorite. So incredibly kick-ass.

yeah, really.

I like the 2 minutes of feedback! Always a huge fan of well produced feedback. Also see: fiirst minute of that Drive Like Jehu song with the feedback, Glassjaw's "HURTING AND SHOVING" with like 8 guitar layers playing feedback, SILVER SESSIONS.

DEMONNN DAYZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

ditto. each one of their albums has some great/classic tracks on it, but they all just make me wanna bump Leaves Turn Inside You.

Unwound's White Album. also the perfect soundtrack for rainy days.

I got to see Unwound in Houston during their Leaves Turn Inside YOu Tour. AWESOME.

Unwound is great.

I always used to hear people say "you like Sonic Youth, you need to listen to Unwound, and Blonde Redhead.."

I enjoy Unwound far more than I enjoy Blonde Redhead, which is hit or miss for me.

I've always thought of Unwound as being more akin to Slint and (for some reason) Fugazi than Sonic Youth, but I kinda lump them all together. Again, no fuckin' clue why. Probably has something to do with the point in my life when I really got into the bands. Wire falls into that category too, and so does My Bloody Valentine (kind of another head scratcher, I know).

Where was I? Ah yes. Nowhere, because I had not actually begun to make a point.

Aaaaaanyway.. Yes Unwound is one of the best fucking bands ever. I would never in a million years claim that they are better then Sonic Youth, I have many times, said to myself, "Holy shit, is Unwound actually better than Slint?!?" (Sometimes out loud, as I did today in the middle of a teleconference at work, much to my own chagrin. My boss was none too pleased.

But honestly in terms of volume of awesome music, and degree of the awesomeness of the awesome music, Unwound is definitely at lest on a par with the mighty Slint. And because there's so much more to be heard and enjoyed by Unwound, I'm going to have to say they'e the "better" band, even though Slint is the better "band." Does that make sense?

It does. And I also think that there is no band that comes closer to being "like" Sonic Youth. Y'know how some people always want to know who the next Nirvana/Pixies/Sonic Youth is going to be? Well, Unwound is the only answer I can come up with and it's a shitty fucking answer! To, I'll might add, a pretty stupid fucking question! One which I have asked a shit ton of times.

Best album of the 00's. Leaves Turn Inside You. Best non-Sonic Youth album anyway. I think. Of '00-'09 anyway.
