And now we get to the heart of the matter. The very meat of the discussion, if you will. Sonic Youth have a huge discography that, like nearly artists with catalogues of such size, varies wildly in quality. Yet someone, even towards the tail end of the career, they will still able to produce an album as cohesive and consistent as Rather Ripped.

After some more discussion around what “cool” is, and how Sonic Youth are still considered as such despite their increasing commercialism, Chris gives us a highlight reel of their career before we discuss Rather Ripped as a whole.

We’re not saying Rather Ripped is their best album, but does it classify as Unsung? Does it deserve to be in our discography? Vote below.
