Maybe I should give Rather Ripped some more listens before I say my opinion, as it is one of the few SY albums that I listen to more sparsely than others. But my main problem with RR is the lack of Jim. Who is to say that the album would have turned out better if he had played on/worked on it, we will never know. But comparing Sonic Nurse to RR the difference in the overall quality of the album is like night and day.

Not all. I love both RR & Eternal as much as the other SY-albums and I donīt think Iīm the only one here. I donīt think the Eternal has greatest production of SY-albums but the sounds are ok, if they never gonna make other album with the same sounds.

I enjoy this record but it does seem very SY B-sidey. That's fine by me, and in some ways I expect that when it's only 1 member of the 4 we love contributing to most of the creativity and tone. I think those 3/5 reviews are about right..it's good but certainly not astounding. Lip is killer, though.

And for the record, I think The Eternal is an awesome awesome album.

No fresh air on this record for sure. It's suffocatingly boring.

CLM played a very entertaining show last Wednesday in San Francisco. Thurston was in good spirits and the band sounded great. All solo material of course, mostly from the new album. But it was a fairly short show -- about a 55 min set plus a 15 min encore, done at 10:30pm. And too bad the venue was less than half filled. . .

Unfortunately, unlike at his past shows there, the venue staff did not allow audio or video recording. I'm pretty sure this wasn't Thurston's doing, as there are open recordings from earlier in this tour. There seemed to be some talk about a video crew coming in to shoot the show, which would have led the venue to limit other recording, but I never saw any pro video cameras there. Too bad.

I have listened to the stream when it was posted on here. One listen was enough for me to decide it is shite.

This finally hit my doorstep, and I just finished my first listen. Totally loved it! I was already surprised by how much I enjoyed the four songs that trickled out last year, and the album is rounded out with songs of the same quality. Sounds great - sparse, dirty, skronky, noisy, simple and fun!

I'm sorry I missed their tour, I'm sure they tear this shit up live. I'm glad Thurston put together a band like this, it strikes me as a little more sincere than some of the recent acoustic singer/songwriter stuff (that said, I was sad to see no response to the recent, well thought-out Demolished Thoughts interpretation thread, though I'm guilty of not replying myself - I liked much of that album, btw).

Looking forward to hearing this again. "Heavenmetal" really opens the CD? Odd. I was surprised to see the alternate cover lettering on the vinyl, does the CD still have the white block text version? The LP jacket/art is very nice.

Now I'll read back through the thread and see how much of this was already mentioned...

I'm not picking on you, because you're obviously entitled to your opinion (and I'm not actually sure if you're referring to the sound quality or the actual songwriting), but I'm wondering if you're basing this on one listen to a low quality stream?

I found the LP sounded a little mid-rangey and "boomy" (as somebody mentioned earlier in the thread). I hate talking about this because I'm not qualified to articulate it, I just know what I mean...haha. I was surprised though, because I remembered the preview mp3s sounding pretty damn good. I'm curious to check out the flac download (nice option, btw!) and see how it compares to the LP. I didn't hear any clipping (also mentioned in this thread), or at least nothing as obvious as some of the moments on The Eternal, but maybe the digital copy will be a different experience.
