I mean yeah

Soundgarden Faith No More Alice In Chains Pearl Jam Tool Mars Volta

It all blurs together as post Sonic Youth guitar bands with nothing interesting to offer

And yeah itís true I never listened to it beyond what happened my way because it takes about 20 seconds to realize itís not worth an hour of your time

And sure to someone who cares the bands I mentioned are probably seemingly unrelated

But hereís the thing

Even Zeppelin couldnít have been Zeppelin post Sonic Youth

Maybe in 2030 a new retro space will open back up this **** no

Suggesting that every rock band should give up because of other good rock bands comes off a weird brand of the music was better in my day stance.

HmmÖ honestly I don't really like Sonic Youth, and though they were certainly an influence on some of the bands you mentioned, I don't hear it all with Faith No More.

Thatís the problem

Sonic Youth was the final chapter on rock guitar

And @ Frown

Maybe thereís some of that because Sonic Youth was like directly my day as in you know 18 years old and there they were

But I donít think my listening habits really support your hypothesis

Maybe with popular music it does

I rejected many guitar bands right off on my sonic youth litmus test

Iíll think about that

That's a disappointing ending to the rock guitar saga.

I love them so much but after Daydream Nation they released several records they shouldnít have. Bad Moon Rising was the real last word.

**** Sonic Youth.

Anyway, I ended up much closer to Janzoon's stance on Dirt than I thought I would. Monumentally boring. I'm actually really hyped on the upcoming AIC album, if only because I really dig the new single, but I was never a fan of the band and Dirt is just an amazingly boring album. I can hardly find anything on it to care about. To me, the songs aren't even catchy. There sure isn't any musical nuance to speak of, so a lack of memorable songs is the kiss of death.

Them vocal harmonies tho

2/10

I have never heard anything by them that I liked enough to listen to more than once.
