10. Summer Sun (2003): As a follow-up to 2000's intense, disciplined And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out and 1997's I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One, which showcased Yo La Tengo's uncanny knack for genre experimentation, 2003's Summer Sun feels like something of an exhalation for a band who had been running hell for leather along the cutting edge. For the first time in many years, Yo La Tengo appeared to be operating without an explicit sense of purpose. The promisingly titled "Summer Of The Shark" is appealing enough, recalling Belle & Sebastian but without Stuart Murdoch's acerbic wit. Same goes for the Georgia-sang "Today is the Day" -- the pieces are all in place and it sounds fine, but it lacks any of the recent creative restlessness that had come to characterize the band. Not even the Beatles were perfect every time out.
