this is a very nice way to put it.
i remember i was thinking, when psychic hearts came out and i liked the record at the time- that he did it for more selfish reasons. selfish, doesnt exactly mean smth bad here. that he liked so much his poppy ways and he had the need to play more of it, so he did it outside the band.

I admit right now that i like clm more than psychic hearts because clm is newer and psychic hearts in some ways, perhaps lyrically doesn't relate to me as much as time goes by. But its cyclical with what i listen too, just like most things.

I do wish that keith wood had some more contrasting guitar parts, most of it is just guitar riff doubling to thurston's, though it works for that heavy laden stoner effect. I think i'm liking the newest songs more which lie more in the short concise no-wave esque tones.

There is a distinct moment during Frank O' Hara that you expect things to take off...It is so strikingly similar to the song Washing Machine. But it doesn't and I kinda wish that it did.

I agree. I think that Frank O'Hara Hit is my least favorite CLM moving song. Which is ironic because I know all of the lyrics to it by heart. At the Other Music show Thutston sang "July 25" and then he forgot the next line (Bobby Dylan, as when he performs that song live he never follows the first line with "Sunday night" as he does in the recorded version) and he asked me what it was and I told him. One of the best moments of my life.

I think CLM is very much Thurston project, because he has made all the songs alone. I think like some other great artists itīs like continuing of the great tradition. Or then same kind of evolve-process as there has been with SY (for example Syr 1 & 2 to ATL). In Psychic Hearts there are same elements as in CLM-album, but those elements are really raw when comparing it CLM. But I like them both much, itīs hard to me say which is better album. Also Demolished is very different album as CLM, but you can easily regognise them both Thurston albums.

Christgau's review:

Quote:
Chelsea Light Moving: Chelsea Light Moving (Matador)


 
For better or worse, and it's both, this is kind of what you'd figure sort of: a Sonic Youth record dominated by that band's most important member. It's also a record that makes us love Steve Shelley, because John Mooney's drums never propel Thurston past virtual pogo territory‑-and that says nothing of what a nice change it used to be to have someone besides Thurston sing. Imagine that "Sleeping Where I Fall" addresses his former bassist-wife if you want, but believe that the whole album is conceived as a bohemian history lesson. Present and accounted for are a flower child who prefers her music free, a song by Darby Crash, a song about Darby Crash, a song to William S. Burroughs, a song linking Dylan to Frank O'Hara, and "Groovy & Linda," who FYI were real hippie speed freaks surnamed Hutchinson and Fitzpatrick who were murdered in a boiler room two blocks from my apartment in 1967. B PLUS

^I think "most important member" is lame. I love SY more than any band ever. And what I love is how much each member matters. (I've always said the same about the Pixies as well).

I do like the CLM album though. And I'd most likely agree with teh score.

I agree. Also I like a lot Moloneysīs drumming. When Steve has very good basic style to SY, I think John has more interesting way to play.

This bands pretty boring. I think thurstons trying too hard too sound punky. the lyrics are lame and the riffs are just tired predictable thurston riffs. Lips sux so much ass I think

it's this familiarity that really kills it for me. I remember someone saying on here when burroughs came out that they couldn't help but yearn for steve's drumming, and when I listen to clm I find it fucking intolerable because it is an exercise in all of thurston's negative qualities which would have been otherwise reined in by lee, kim and steve.

Saw them "live" here in Mpls. about a month ago. Thought they were fan fuckin' tastic. Thurston said he needed a beer and asked if anyone else wanted one. Went backstage and came out with some PBR Tallboys and started handing them out indiscriminately. The guys divorced and trying to soldier on, why harsh on his mellow?
