I think Elphenor actually showed me some Sonic Youth once and I liked it. I think it might have been something from the Evol album.

Ouch, that is a scathing review if I've ever read one. I personally find myself enjoying both of those musical personalities, but I agree that their best momemts were when they were writing gloomy songs. I forgot to list on my favorite songs for this album on my previous post, but "Down In A Hole" is definitely my favorite track from this album and I think that embodies a lot of their best qualities.

10/10.
In my book the best album of the grunge era.

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
I like Alice in Chains but am definitely not over the moon about them, but when they kicked the LA Melvins schtick to the curb for an EP of acoustic(ish), dual lead vocal tracks it was the best thing they ever did by a mile and you should at least hear Jar of Flies before you shut the door.

Spoiler for vids:
Okay the new video system won't let you post playlists in a single video. Lame.

I doubt that AIC's campfire singalongs record will sway him but it's worth a shot I guess.

If cock rock Melvins can sway you then who knows.

Tbh "getting serious for a moment" by bringing out an acoustic is one of the most cock waggliest (wagglingest?) moves you can make.

Thankfully it didn't sound like an "Unplugged" album.

Not even when they performed songs from Jar of Flies on their Unplugged album?

Jar of Flies is their only good release IMO. I never really thought of it as acoustic though, just better.
