Thurston Moore first saw Beck way back in the early 90s when Beck was mowing lawns with an amplified hand-push ill-blade mower at a backyard BBQ on Toul Avenue in Westwood L.A., a coconut’s throw from the 405 freeway. Beck only sang a couple of songs, both about TV destruction and toxic inhalants, before he lifted a German Shepherd over his head and threw it into the crowd. I was from ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A refined masterpiece 23 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you're a Sonic Youth fan, you will love this album. If you're not a Sonic Youth fan, you will love this album!
Thurston has crafted a masterpiece with this album of stunning acoustic and electric guitar work, subtle drums, mellow strings and beautiful vocal harmonies.
The songs fit together perfectly as a collection, with more up-tempo and feedback swathed numbers adding a dynamic between the calmer and more delicate tracks; something which is sadly missing from the recently released Demolished Thoughts (although that is also a fine piece of work.)
Stand out songs are opener Frozen Gtr. and the sublime Honest James, but the rest of the album is just as good. There's still space for some experimental, dissonant feedback, but nothing close to any SY album.
For less than 4 you can bag yourself a true, refined masterpiece - GO BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 9 Oct 2011
By John
Format:Audio CD
There's not really much I can add that has not already been written. I rate it as highly as any Sonic Youth album, and can't really understand why it is not more well known. Can highly recommend to anybody.

Any fans of Sonic Youth should really enjoy this album.
This is a Moore (see what i did there) accessible album than some of his other work, but certainly no less cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guitar album 15 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
I've only recently discovered this relatively obscure album and wholly agree with the earlier reviews. Its a great guitar album - mostly acoustic but definitely not folky just sublime rock - akin to Dinosaur Jr but with much less emphasis on grungy electric guitar although J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr does play lead guitar on several tracks! Fantastic album.
