like myself.......even their weaker albums like NYC Ghosts & Flowers and EVOL (though many will contest this) were either inconsistent or consistently passable. Dirty just sucks and is flat-out awful, with the exception of "Sugar Kane". On that album, they sounded like a bad parody of Sonic Youth rather than the real thing, out of touch and completely in love with themselves
DN > EJT&NS > EVOL = Sister > the rest (need to listen to more to properly rank them)
Side 1 of EVOL is amazing and deserving of the album's reputation, but side 2 just really brings it down, endless stretches of boring guitar buzzing that sounds a lot like the stuff on Bad Moon Rising but lacking that dark mood that is so crucial to that album. I do like the piano part in "Secret Girl" and the first few minutes of "Expressway" though
Confusion is Sex is my personal favorite
And yes, I do enjoy doing discography listens lately. I don't know why. Next one will probably be Flaming Lips or The Replacements.
So, to recap my SY (more for my own reference and completeness than anyone else's sake)
Sister - 9/10
Daydream Nation - 10/10
Goo - 9/10
Dirty - 9/10
Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star - 9/10
Washing Machine - 9/10
The next two I'll listen to are EVOL and Confusion Is Sex. Then I'm open for recommendations.
