Description:
This group is for fans of Sonic Youth's NYC Ghosts and Flowers, who think that this album is underappreciated and underrated.

For too long has Sonic Youth's 2000 album NYC Ghosts and Flowers been severely underappreciated. From several people scrawling "pretentious" across messageboards to pitchfork's lol 0.0 review of it, this album is far better than most people think.

For all you people who enjoy and appreciate NYC Ghosts and Flowers, this is the group for you!

    I still think it's their worst album but I'd still give it a solid 6/10. It has a couple of nice songs. It's no use getting worked up over Pitchfork reviews, they're more about what'll get attention than what is a legitimate review of the album. Examples: This album, Zaireeka, Lateralus

    Probably my favourite by them is 'Sister' but this one (with maybe 'A Thousand Leaves') is the close second. At least it is something very distinct in their discography. And as much as I love'em, I wouldn't say most of their albums differ greatly.

    it's not bad, but it's not particularly good either. it's just sonic youth doing their thing.

    it's not their worst album, just another kind of work, of how they understand music, art in general. last goodbye to beaten generation's time. delicious

    What the hell is 'Pitchfork' anyway ?

    Yep, I agree. While I still give it an okay rating, it's still SY's worst album. It has nothing to do with Pitchfork, album just stinks by Sonic Youth standards.

    i am still "sad" that they changed afterwords and never came back so far. it is a wonderful piece of art.
