I read an interview with Thurston in Magnet magazine today that said most of the songs from Rather Ripped came from little 10-second riffs he wrote as jingles for HSBC bank commercials.

I like Rather Ripped, it mellows me out. But I won't say it is their best nor their worst.

Hey porkmarras, I don't know what you are trying to say with that, but I'll take it that you don't like Rather Ripped.Funny though.

Edit: I'll take that back. I listened to it a few times and decided it wasn't worth my time.

nature scene, you will loove rather ripped someday. I promise you. I felt the same way when NYC ghosts & flowers came out. I fucking HATED IT, but years later, I sat down to reappraise it and I loved it for all the reasons I hated it when I first heard it.'


sonic youth is asclose to a god as there exists

Rather Ripped does not suck Hayden. Damn it, now I am definitely stealing your Xiu Xiu shit, out of pure spite.

It wasn't up to SY's standards. It wasn't the worst album of the year by any means but there is much better shit to waste my time listening to.

I mean, it's still sonic youth... and there are still some good songs.

But the record sounds too formulaic and forced.
I was convinced they weren't having fun when I saw them this summer. Just going through the motions.

After careful examination, I concur. Such art is rare in these times.

So i hadn't listened to it in a long time until today. I'll admit I do like some of the songs. As an album it still doesn't click.
There's a lot of standard time tracks and the tempo just seems too slow to me.
Also, I've never been big fan of the vocals and melody following each other.
