I do. They had some flashes of brilliance here and there, but everything post-I Can Hear has been an NPR mango salsa snoozefest. Audio ambien.

wasn't offended at all (if ever, I could have been offended only from 2:07 to 2:08 [in my time zone] anyway)

just an innocent couple of songs I like by them

As disappointed as I am about the sad Sonic news, this is a difficult question to answer. Part of me thinks SY has recorded their best stuff in the past and it may be difficult to ever exceed it again......but who knows when you factor in a divorce?

As pointed out above, YLT has had flashes of brilliance in the past......but I honestly feel their greatest work is yet to come. I dream of them recording a full on jazz album one day.

I love Yo La Tengo, one of my favourite bands to listen to especially in the dead of night.

I think their best period was probably the 4 albums they released between 93-00. The last 3 albums have been good but a bit patchy in places.

They're great live as well, it can tend to be a little self indulgent especially when they play a 22 minute version of pass the hatchet whilst headlining a festival. It pretty much alienated most of the crowd, It was pretty great though.

A lot different from Sonic Youth, even so I always thought Flying Lesson (Hot Chicken #1) sounded like Wish Fulfillment, still a great band.

I don't get it... like we could have chose another husband/wife band to separate as opposed to SY? Is that the concept you're implying?

Haha, I guess in a fucked up hypothetical parallel universe sort of way. Could apply to Tom Tom Club, Mates Of State, Low, Arcade Fire, Sundays or Captain & Tenille too. Didn't mean to offend anybody, just super bummed about the K&T split. Laughter's the best medicine you guys!

I don't care if YLT breaks up. So yeah, sure. But why? And who cares?

YLT released one of my favorite albums ever, and a bunch of other stuff that hasn't really interested me. So, I don't give a shit.

But I'd rather SY didn't break up, obviously.

There was a time I was more into YLT. Those days are over now... I wasn't particularly impressed with them live, either. But I certainly have no wish to see them break up. They've still got good tunes and good albums.
