Try not being an closeminded prick, ass.

(This is what I call a rational, mature discussion )
Sorry I was so abrasive last night, we can chalk that up to the asspocket of whiskey I polished off earlier at the bar.

Obviously I disagree that the alt. version has no redeemable qualities, and I'm just surprised you don't at least like Claycourt's menacing bass (which would have fit even better in the more monstrous album version).

The chorus and outro of NLOTH2 are both much better than the album version.

I have no idea what NLOTH2 is. A alt. take b-side or something I'd guess?

Yeah, it's an alternate take of the track, found as a B-side to the Boots single. I think iTunes had it lumped in with the digital preorder of the album as well. Or something like that.

I don't like Daydream Nation. Or more than a few Sonic Youth songs and maybe one or two records, really. Always felt bad about that, but it doesn't seem like I'm going to come around, any time soon. Been trying for a while, by now.

No problem. I have a hard time hating NLOTH2, it's breezy and brings back good memories of NLOTH's release, just doesn't feel nearly as full and complete as the album version to me, which is appropriate enough.

Just, for the record, does anyone know which was recorded first? I know it's called NLOTH2, but it feels, erm, embryonic.

NLOTH was first. NLOTH2 was their one-off attempt to make it more punk, but they never went farther than the one take they did. They then went back to NLOTH. My understanding is that both tracks were done in one take.

I think they originally had NLOTH but when they got to Olympic studios in London the band recorded NLOTH2 that apparently they wanted but Eno didn't.

As the guy who almost threw away "Streets," Eno knows best.

I'll amend my generic "album version is better" to say that I do really appreciate the looseness in NLOTH2, and love the NO! NET! bits at the end.

But I still prefer the album version overall.

Thanks for reinforcing his point completely.
