They certainly aren't for everyone. If you felt that way about MPP, I can't even imagine what you would think of Sung Tongs....

Strawberry Jam is my favorite, but MPP may be the best one to start with.
Feels is probably my second favorite, with The Purple Bottle being my favorite track by them....

Yo La Tengo[quote]The name came from a baseball anecdote. During the 1962 season, New York Mets center fielder Richie Ashburn and Venezuelan shortstop Elio Chacón found themselves colliding in the outfield. When Ashburn went for a catch, he would scream, "I got it! I got it!" only to run into Chacón...

I wouldn't expect it to last too long
83% strand rate

Still a solid pitcher though....

Mistaken for Strangers
Wake Up Your Saints
Terrible Love (alternate version)
I was going to do some honorable mentions, but then I realized I was...

Yep, it is one if my favorite albums to listen to beginning to end. Gigantic is probably my least favorite song on the album actually.
