Hard to pick certain tracks for they seem to fit in the same category of punkish ambience...I listened to this entire thing twice over while writing stream-of-conciousness passages for a novella. This is very good for that, and even if you don't want to write down whatever passes by yr. purty little head, then just see it...let the music warp you in like a good drug, it let's your mind wander thru a series of complex and complicated dreams (or nightmares)...there are some speaking parts. Kim does her own interpretation of Goldilocks & THe Three Bears in the first track, Renaldo narrates another track with scarce freeform poetry. Can't remember names, in this case why should it matter?
Anyway, you'll either love or hate this cd. If you want to expereince SY at their most popworthy get Washing Machine or Goo or Dirty... these are easily their more accessible, then get artier with Daydream Nation and anything beforehand and A THousnad Leaves and NYC Ghosts & Flowers...then this cd will be able to entertain you. If you are are already into highly experimental music such as Mr. Bungle or Pixies, then get their whole collection or atleast half of it...yadayadayada...
Enjoy the clashing sounds of xylophones, guitar dissnonace, cartoonish noise, vocal mumbling, violins, spacecraft sounds from above, and any other ambient zigzags that can't be formed via this record 54 50 50 40-3- =22= 2=2= 2=2=
P.S.: Even Goo, WM, and Dirty aren't all that popworthy...Washing Machine would actually fit in the artier section, it's very complex beautiful most jo average music jerks wouldn't be able to withstand a 2o minute Diamond Sea.
