There hasnt been enough talk of In Prism on this board. I think it's excellent, it's the best album they've released since TAL, definately in my top 5 of the year.

Overall they arent the most consistent band in the world but fuck me, when they get it right they blow pretty much everything else out of the water. I cannot wait to see them on tuesday.

I like the album. I just feel it's a little slow so I'm often reluctant to put it on. It doesn't drag, it just doesn't feel that energetic. Not that all music should be, of course.

I saw them live a month or so ago. I went alone so I wasn't feeling particularly festive, but I felt the sound wasn't that great (I feel like I'm always criticizing the sound...I'm just more a fan of recorded music I guess). The show could have been a bit more energetic. And while the crowd was decent it also felt embarrassingly small for Seattle.

I was really disappointed with In Prisms and I didn't even have high hopes.

I could see many people finding it too different from the previous album. I think what helped me accept In Prism right away was discovering Black Taj (featuring Dave Brylawski) about a year ago. Their album Beyonder is really great, featuring a more classic rock sound but with hints of Polvo's brand of rock (though don't get me wrong, it sounds less like Polvo than In Prism, of course). I'd suggest anyone that likes In Prism check that out.

Powerful amounts of agreement, though The Pedlar has sneaked up on it! I think i like In Prism more than the new Sonic Youth album. Those who have listened to both of them probably know why i'm comparing the two, In Prism just seems like the album SY want to be making right now.

As Swim said, it is not a patch on their early release but c'mon. It's still head and shoulders above many albums this year and gives the kids a huge run for their money.

Sonic Youth are hardly kids now! I do agree though, it's been getting many plays from me this year, a definite highlight.

I was meaning more the guitar albums that are out this year and this track in particular is head and shoulders above many.

Default Polvo

For fans of Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr., Polvo is an indie art rock band that emphasizes on dense sonic structure. There's nothing that really makes them BETTER than their contemporaries, but they write some excellent songs and have some nice sounds.
