Thoughts on this album? I bought this album in 2006 when I heard it playing in a record store and asked someone working there what it was. Ever buy an album after hearing a small part of it playing in a record store? On a whim?Also, oddly enough, this was my introduction to Sonic Youth and is still my favorite of their albums.
the Sonic Youth album for people who don't like Sonic Youth
>Ever buy an album after hearing a small part of it playing in a record store? On a whim?Prior to... whatever people use to preview music these days, this was done all the time. Sometimes I'd buy something I'd only read about. Sometimes I'd buy something because of the record label and cover art. Granted mostly I bought used cassettes and CDS then so it wasn't a huge risk but I can't say I ever regretted any of these little gambles.
>>87160989I heard some of Coltrane's Live in Japan as a young teen on some quasi local college radio 3 am insomnia session. had a cassette that I rec'd misc bits with. recorded like a 35 minute song that slowly evolved into my favorite things. this is before id even heard of like Love Supreme... So I didn't know what it was . . . and it haunted my for a decade before I found the album . . .and I wouldn't exchange the experience for anything else.and this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAcgwXkIOHMthis fucking lyric chased me for years... sound system plays a renegade tune . . .dunno why
>>87161253the fuck does any of that have to do with sonic youth
>>87161307This thread isn't about Sonic Youth you retard
don't even pretend like this isn't their best work
>>87161307damnyoure an unpleasant cunt and id like to cut you and watch you bleed out while eating homemade beef jerky.I fucking love homemade jerky.the fat melts in your mouth. fucking delicious.
>>87161368It's not though.
>>87161504the virgin noise rock vs the chad no wave
>>87161511Pfff. Not even their best no wave record. I'll take their self-titled or their first live performance at the noise fest concert.
>>87161368*Blocks your path*The ultra No Wave Sonic Youth.
>>87161524>>87161543true, true, but studio wise i think it's their best work (or at least up there)but everyone knows the best no wave record in general is pic related
>>87161562I would say the BEST No Wave album of all time would have to be No New York. It's pretty well the definitive record.
>>87161587Into the flood agaaaaaaiiiin. Dirt is their best album.
*casually btfo's sonic youth*
>>87161619I like Sonic Youth's cover of Blonde Redhead.

>>87161671I have no problem with Kim's vocals, although I know people have issues with them.

>>87161691yeah but she just sounded like she was getting rawdogged by a black man on stage, arto lindsay's vocals were sonically blistering and abrasive, probably the most threatening ever and she just went "aaa UUU OOOAAA WAAAA" like a retard
>>87161731Never felt that way about it myself.

>>87161886the lyrics of nature scene are a cut up of manfredo tafuris architecture and utopia (only partially - but I think significantly)
>>87161917At least you didn't say Daydream Nation.

VIET NAM NAPALM>>87163694
>>87160989First post got it right but it's still a good album. And yeah, I did that once with Alcest's third album.
>>87161774i guess his mind just associated it with a sound he's familiar with
>>87161917>>87161955Their best is so clearly Hold That Tiger, the studio stuff doesn't get anywhere near that energy.
I did that once - it's how I first heard Felix Da Housecat>>87161673Based and Madonnapilled
>>87160989This was the first SY album i heard when i was like 13. Its not their best but has some good tunes and a special place in my heart.
