Yeah i downloaded the album, suck it if thats a problem for you, I will for sure buy it the first day it comes out. I haven't listened to it much, but wow, kim is great on this album, star of the show for the vocals. singing in key? who would of thunk it? although I like kim's voice quite a bit on alot of songs, sometimes her voice is a distraction when she is going all dischordent. but yeah, I like her vocals on this album, its a very catchy album as has been said over and over, it kinda reminds me of how Fugazi got very catchy on The Argument, but obviously in an SY way. I like it, at least for now, Sy stuff that i like alot immediatly sort of starts to diminish in pleasure faster that the more difficult and complex stuff. but overall, im happy with the album, it sounds like sonic youth...

Hey, thanks, I didn't know it was there... Incinerate is great

neongod, you're from baltimore? do you play in any local bands? i may know you. hehe.

but anyways, i think i'm going to weigh in with my two cents on this album. i'm sorry if anyone is frustrated that i've already heard it, but i can promise you that i will purchase the album and that jesus has already died for our sins.

1. reena - perhaps my favorite track on the album. great opener, very strong. terrific vocals by kim, nice arrangement. it will be a great live song also, i can tell... especially on the little breakdown part.

2. incinerate - not a bad song, very catchy. it sounds A LOT like green mind-era dinosaur jr. doesn't sound much like sonic youth though... sounds very clean and accessible in the verses.

3. do you believe in rapture? - not my favourite song, but it might be growing on me. i like how they took some chances with the production, but it sounds kind of like an arena rock, hold-up-yr-lighter song.

4. sleepin around - sounds sort of like an unfinished sketch of a velvet underground song. the drums on the mix that i have heard are way too quiet, and its not as driving as it could be.

5. what a waste - sounds like it should be on experimental jet set. again, it sounds sort of unfinished. kim doesn't sing it as well as she sings the other songs on the album, but i do love the lyric, "i can't wait to taste your face."

6. jams run free - this song sounds like it would normally be a b-side or bonus track or something... theres just not a whole lot to it. maybe i need to listen to it more, but i find it sort of boring.

7. rats - fantastic. lee's catchiest song since "genetic." arrangement is very effective and it sounds like theres some light tape delay on his voice that reminds me of the vocal production of "hey joni." and it will definitely be a great live song.

8. turquoise boy - a pretty song with a nice piano track. kim sings it very well, and it has a light and airy quality to it. much more melodic than the typical sy song.

9. lights out - so far i'm not really digging this song. i don't care much for the lyrics and the chorus is kind of boring and poorly executed. maybe it will grow on me.

10. the neutral - very catchy, fresh verse. very stale chorus that sounds very much like a sonic nurse rip off. great vocal production though, sounds very warm.

11. pink steam - epic-ish arrangement. definitely thurston's best vocals on the album. strong song and the recording does it justice.

12. or - a nice, introverted closer... with bad lyrics. but the textures are there and thats what counts.

all in all, i approve. i can't wait to hear the final mixes, and i have a feeling that the album will really grow on me.

Hi!
I download the album yesterday, (as my own birthday present;-) I have only listen to it 3 or 4 times but I like it a lot, I will continue listening to it and maybe later I will write s´t about it, of course I will buy it when it comes out (both cd and vinyl versions as always)

I am still amazed how is possible that the album is already on emule, soulseek, etc...

Do you believe in rapture? is my favourite song at the moment...
cheers

Pedro

You honestly cannot excpect that they should sound like they did 25 years ago. This is peculiar. Everyone wants 20 albums that sound like sister (or whatever you love from SY in the 80s).

Quite the opposite. We are amazed at how they've evolved over the years. And the ones that don't like it I can understand...it abandons a lot of what was their signature sound.

I've listened a few more times and it has some decent songs

Listen to the new JESU ep instead.

I have yet to check them out, but I've seen them in stores a lot. Aren't they similar to Khanate?

At first I was slightly disappointed, but fuck, this is really growing on me. Listen closely, everythings sonic is in there, for crissakes. "Rats" is definitely an instant classic, typical Lee brilliance, and makes me think of running through a dark night-time field with a crazy multipattern-jacketed wonder-soaked hippy girl.

The album is growing on me too. I think it's more of a return to early 90s alternative rock. Like early Pavement with fuller guitar sounds (not single note playing) but mixed with unconventional, yet *consonant*(as opposed to the usual dissonant stuff you would expect from Sonic Youth) chords.

There is nothing radical or revolutionary, they're just good nostalgic songs. But it's not nostalgia for the sake of nostalgia. It's more like a nod of appreciation to the early 90's.

First off, do some of you work as markters, they way you put on a spin on a yawnfest...

Also, SY members have kept up the "noise" experimentations in their side projects, so it's not that they evolved as they redirected it...
