Sonic Youth - Murray Street

I've actually never listened to that much Sonic Youth (beside Daydream Nation, which is a personal favourite album) so I decided to check out more of their albums this weekend. Murray Street is definitely the one sticking out so far, great album. Awesome guitar, very consistent, and lots of interesting noise-ish stuff going on.

^^What else did you listen to, when Murray Street is sticking out? Don't get me wrong, it's a solid album, but they have much better albums imo. I was just wondering.

Sonic Nurse, Goo, and Sister. Sister was really really good as well. What do I listen to next?

EDIT: and I listened to The Eternal last year when it came out, didn't do much for me.

The Eternal didn't do much for me either and I'm a huge SY fan. I just find it uninspired.

I suggest Evol and Confusion Is Sex. They're quite different, Confusion Is Sex (1983) is SY at their loudest. Might as well get Kill Yr Idols mini album, it usually goes with Confusion. Evol (1986) is when they started to change and be more melodic, but still iconoclastic. Brilliant album, quite dark and psychedelic. If you like these then go for Bad Moon Rising (1985).

From their later stuff (90s) I find Washing Machine (1995) to be absolutely brilliant, followed by A Thousand Leaves (1998). Their 00s albums are more unified in sound, but for some reason Rather Ripped (2006) is sticking out for me. Seriously there was no need for Eternal after that album. I'm waiting for them to change their sound again.

The Residents - The Third Reich 'N' Roll

Everything about this album is absolutely hilarious - its name, its execution, its vocals, its atonality used for comedic value, its song titles, etcetera, etcetera. In my mind, two things made some Residents albums better than others; longer songs = better album. Also, a concept album = better album. This album has both of those factors, and therefore, it soars. The perfect deconstruction of Rolling Stones, Beatles, and even Iron Butterfly found here all clawing at each other's throats to an almost nonsensical level - it's hilarious and beautiful, like most good art out there. Every time I hear that moaning choir/synth hovering below the guitar solo playing the melody to "Hey Jude" in the COMPLETELY WRONG key, I start laughing and loving this album. Then the guys start saying "WOO WOO!" in the fashion of "Sympathy for the Devil"... It's just priceless. Amazing album.
