    I'd say for me it's...

    1). Rather Ripped
    2). Murray Street
    3). Experimental Jet Sex, Trash and no star
    4). Goo

    ** I've only heard Teenage Riot from Daydream, considering it's one of my favorite songs by them and because it's there most acclaimed album, I should probably get it huh??!

    i can't give a definite favourite sonic youth album so i'll break it up into decades (listed are the only SY albums i own):

    1. Sister
    2. Daydream Nation
    3. Confusion Is Sex/Kill Yr. Idols

    1. Washing Machine
    2. A Thousand Leaves
    3. Goo
    4. Dirty (this is just because i only just got it so haven't listened to it enough to pass a proper verdict)

    1. Murray Street
    2. Sonic Nurse
    3. Rather Ripped

    Sonic Nurse sounds more like a collection of songs rather than an album which is why it's listed 2nd...Murray Street feels more like an album although i probably prefer the songs on Sonic Nurse to those on Murray Street (don't really like Disconnection Notice or Plastic Sun...) although Rain on Tin, Radical Adults Lick Godhead Style and Symplathy for the Strawberry ROCK.

  • 1. EVOL
    2. Daydream nation
    3. Washing machine
    4. Sister
    5. Sonic nurse
    6. Confusion is sex + Kill yr. idols
    7. NYC ghosts and flowers
    8. Bad Moon rising
    9. Goo
    10. A thousand leaves
    11. Rather ripped
    12. Sonic youth
    13. Murray Street
    14. Dirty
    15. Experimental jet-set, trash and no star

    I can't tell if it's yesterday or tomorrow and it's a real mindfuck.

    1. Daydream Nation (Trilogy is like an orgy of sound)
    2. Sister (Pipeline, Catholic, Schizo, PCH, White Kross... the list goes on for 6 more songs)
    3. Confusion is Sex (Experimental sound at its best, hands down)
    4. Goo (Disappearer, I think not, this is one for anyone's shelf, especially the list of greatest songs)
    5. EVOL (Expressway to Yr. Skull, fuck the word "your" it's all about "yr." since this song came out)
    6. Sonic Nurse (Stones and New Hampshire, two phenomenal jam songs)
    7. Washing Machine (Skip Tracer live is godlike, and Diamond Sea... enough said)
    8. Dirty (Theresa's Sound-World & Purr)
    9. Murray Street (7 songs, not much to dislike)
    10. Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star (Kim songs are "eh")
    11. NYC Ghosts & Flowers (Free City Rhymes & NYC Ghosts & Flowers)
    12. Rather Ripped (Pink Steam really boosts this album up from the bottom, that song is like the new Expressway)
    13. A Thousand Leaves (The Kim songs on here really drag it down the list)
    14. Sonic Youth (Too short to really love above other albums)
    15. Bad Moon Rising (Heard around somewhere that GWB listens to this album quite often, I however don't)

    Was pretty tough to choose the ranking of each. I actually felt bad about where I placed "A Thousand Leaves" because Sunday, Hoarfrost and Hits of Sunshine are all such beautifully crafted songs.

    Top ten is maybe...Daydream Nation, Goo, Sister, Dirty, Rather Ripped, Murray Street, Confusion Is Sex/Kill Yr. Idols (yeah I have that double collected thingy), Washing Machine, Sonic Nurse, Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star. I like all albums though. Really, it's a cliché, but it's true :) For example, I didn't list Bad Moon Rising here, but, Death Valley ´69 is one of my favourite SY songs.

    I only have six of their far.

    According to my RYM ratings:

    1. Daydream Nation
    2. Goo
    3. Sister
    4. Rather Ripped
    5. Dirty
    6. EVOL

    I like them all, though. The reason EVOL's in last place is since it has my least favorite song of theirs (Marilyn Moore) on it.

    Murray Street, Washing Machine and Bad Moon Rising are my next priorities.

  • 1. Daydream Nation
    2. Goo
    3. Dirty
    4. EVOL
    5. Rather Ripped
    6. Sister
    7. Confusion is Sex
    8. Washing Machine
    9. Bad Moon Rising
    10. Sonic Nurse
    11. Murray Street
    12. NYC Ghosts & Flowers
    13. A Thousand Leaves
    14. Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star
    15. The Destroyed Room

    Rather Ripped is a fantastic album. Slightly poppier than the normal Sonic Youth but the hooks and melodies in a lot of the songs are outstanding. I command you to give it a good listen to!

    Now I have seven—I got Washing Machine not too long ago—and it's SO awesome. I'd even put it right behind Daydream Nation.
