There are a hell of a lot of bands out there though to understand any comparison you're trying to make...

Yeah, I know. Like I said, I'm not a big fan of Sonic Youth. They are not on my Top 100 Bands list.

I'd rank Lee and Thurston evenly as guitarists, they're pretty much inseparative to me. But it's not like they're in competition with each other either. As a guitar duo they're one of the best in my view.

Daydream Nation is the obvious place to start accessibly. Sister and EVOL have some great killer songs though. I'd try those three.

i'd suggest 'Goo' and 'Dirty', my two personal favourites and probably their most accessible albums so a good starting point

I'd probably start with Goo as well. Although it's not my favourite SY album it's the best for a beginner in my view. It has a more streamlined sound yet still has some cracking songs and retains the band's key traits. Daydream Nation was where I started, as did a lot of people probably, but it can be a tough listen at first and can even put some people off.

Sonic youth is a weird one for me cause some songs i absolutely luv but others i hate..

What i do love about Sonic youth is how at the beginning all their guitar feedback and imposing noise with time start to become melodic the more familiar you get with the band.

Not that i wanna compare bands or anything but because of bands like Sonic Youth i now enjoy bands like Deerhoof Cause they sorta prepared me with those loud ass guitar effects lol

i luv the Sonic youth songs that Kim narrates, like Tunic or bull in the heather..

their so.. weird lol

like abstract feminist poems with distorted guitars as background..

I know what she is talking about but at the same time idk what the hell she's talking about

Always heard good things about these guys but never could really get into them. I'll check out of the above recommendations.

I agree with Black Francis. Kim's tracks add a certain extreme emotional quality to the whole dynamic that really shines through and makes these guys distinct.
