Sound As Ever is an album by You Am I released in November 1993. It was recorded at Pachyderm Studio in rural Cannon Falls, Minnesota and produced by Lee Ranaldo, (Sonic Youth). Tracks include the singles "Adam's Ribs", "Berlin Chair" and "Jaimme's Got A Gal".'

A raw sounding first album produced by Lee Ranaldo, Sound As Ever was a departure for Tim Rogers, Andy Kent and Mark Tunaley as a back to basics, punk-influenced Australian rock band.

Tim Rogers said of the album, "Lee was the sweetest man in the world and continues to be so. Nirvana had just packed up after In Utero and we were the next ones in, this bunch of little yokels from Australia."[2]
