the whole SYR series is mostly instrumental though it's also generally some of their most difficult music. The last one SYR9 is a soundtrack/entirely instrumental album and of them all the most accessible except maybe the first one.

One of their best songs too



SYR1:

^ Thanks Mondo Bungle. This is great news for me as that's just how I like songs to go. Your recs are my favourite SY tracks so far and I'm just loving Diamond Sea: blown away by how it really hots up at 14 mins in. Many genuine thanks!

You think it’s the greatest SY song of all time?

I think that album A Thousand Leaves would suit you well on the whole. It's among their spaciest offerings.

My top favorite is Murray Street though, which is definitely another good choice for that kind of stuff, although not as drawn out and krauty as a Thousand Leaves. Still has a good bit of low key acid numbers





and high key mostly instrumental post rocky guitar worship

The lack of Swans in this thread is disturbing.

Best Sonic Youth song is this imo



I'm incredibly far from having a solid opinion of the band on a track to track basis though. I can see their influence clear as day but they only rarely hit God status for me and when they do, it's usually as a part of the SYR series.

Anyway, this thread is a failure without any mention of Clutch who is clearly the defining rock band of this century.
