I love Thurstons vocals on it. They're so... sort of... lazily done... in a way. Sort of Stephen Malkmus-y. Y'know? I especially love Mary-Christ's vocals.

The vocals are very lazy. Especially Kims. Sounds liek she was half asleep.

Yeah, Kim's are poor, but Thurston's singing fits his lyrics well.

Sounds like Thurston was going for a different vocal style though. I find it a little humerous at times.

SISTER : the best album i've ever heard, from the beginning to the end, no bullshit, just brilliant songs. And this sound, so special, so warm. Firts time I heard Schizophrenia, I got shivers. First time I heard Catholic block intro since 5 years, I couldn't believe i 've waited for a so long time to listen to this milestone. GOO : not so bad, but no so powerfull. Good songs, but as not linked as Sister's.
SISTER is still the best album of the 80's.

Not really. EVOL was the album that did that. Part of why Sister is named that is that they considered it a "sister" album to EVOL. A lot of people, myself included, like it a little better, but EVOL was very much the pop deviation from the noisier records Bad Moon Rising, Kill Your Idols, and Confusion is Sex.

Yupyupyup. Both albms are absolutely delicious.

And no matter what you fucks all say, Rather Ripped is a fan-fucking-tastic album. One of '06's best.

I like goo on a different context than sister. I like goo's more pop-oriented song structures, while sister is amazing on another plateu. the lyrics are just brilliant on that one. Both are good.

I think that hits it on the nail... Sister and Goo are both brilliant for completely different reasons. Like OK Computer and Nevermind...

But if you put them both on a list, I'd pick Nevermind without even thinking about it. Radiohead I've never really liked.

I love both Nirvana and Radiohead, but Nevermind takes it, no questions asked. Plus, OK Computer gets too much credit as Radioheads best album... no it ain't!

In Utero is far better than nevermind, and Bleach beats In Utero.

Word. Bleach, however, is my least favourite. The drums sound so sucky on Bleach. (recording, that is)

No Nevermind is my least favorite. I have In Utero and Bleach on Vynil, I just need Nevermind.

Yikes.
I broke a couple of record players... (by "scratching" with them...) I learned from my mistakes, I got free replacements every time though, because I lied and said it was natural causes!!! (Mind, this happened thrice hahaha!)
