NYC Ghosts & Flowers

I think it's the best song since Mote, in 1990

Minimalism? I don't hear any minimalism.

I think it's an ok album. Not nearly as bad as some make it out to be.

gotta say NYCG&F. I think it's Lee's best songs, but I've never heard Genetic, so I really couldn't make that opinion justified. I would love to see it back in the setlists... HINT HINT.

obviously NYCG+F. the best SY song after Expressway. I think of it in the same group of songs with I love her all the time, Expressway to yr skull, Diamond Sea, the Sprawl and Schizophrenia.

with the exception of NYCGF, the first track and lightin' , the rest of the songs off NYCGF are not even interesting. i dislike that album - and murray street and s nurse.

It's my least favorite album too, but I still love it.

I think NYCG&F is my favourite Sonic Youth album. It's in the running with Evol, Washing Machine and DDN.

I agree in that my least favourite is EJSTNS.

NYCG&F easily. Free City Rhymes and Rengade are honorable mentions. And if Kim had only come up with different lyrics for the middle part of Nevermind (Boys go to Jupiter...) that would probably be my top actually. But she didn't and Lee prevails with his amazing poetry.

NYCG&F is one of two SY albums I don't really dig, but don't hold against them, the other being jet set, of course. I mean, their gear got stolen before this one and they hadn't really worked into their new gear yet... and the production, no offense to jim, just doesn't fit right most of the time. Too thin. As for jet set, kim was pregnant and there were no lee songs. It's a fuckin odd ball.

It's probably the only SY record that I didn't hear hundreds of times but perhaps a maximum of 5 times instead
Surely liked "Nevermind"
