I've never really liked Sonic Youth, so I was surprised that this album was by the same people.
The layers of processed guitars screech + roar across a variety of frequencies, yet are firmly rooted within a base of droning noise and mechanical beats ... despite this though, the tunes remain catchy enough, and there's a sense of humour present that prevent the songs from sounding too self indulgent...

This is one of my favourite SY records and it comes from arguably their best period. It contains the Kim Gordon track G-Force and their Into The Groovey cover (both essential), and guitar experiments all essential, and some other Sonic Youth throwaways that no fan could throw away. There is some other stuff that is dated but its not much and with the exception of the Mike Watt piece it is very very short. The whole album has a nice feel and sound and value to it. I haven't had Geffen's "expanded" version yet but it looks the same as the Blast First issue.

cover versions aside, this album is exceptionally disappointing. Kim sings well but that's not enough to hold this album up on it's own.I bought this album in France about ten years ago and the only thing that stands out are the cover versions. Buy "Goo" instead.

Well, this isn't the best Sonic Youth album but this is where they started to make music for others as well as themselves.
It's worth buying purely for Into The Groovy, probably the best Madonna cover ever!

What is this all about? An LP by Sonic Youth/frenz, in tribute to...what? Madonna L Ciccone, Robert Palmer, Neu, J Mascis, Hendix/Cosby...all this, yes, but why? Back in the day(dream Nation), before Kurdt, Liam, Damon, we (Indie kids) weren't allowed to have pop. Pop was for other people. We could only have pop if it was IRONIC. We had Noise Bands.
This is the sound of the UBERnoiseband, giving us pop, but with noise. Some of it sounds irrelevant today (or horrible - 'Addicted to Love', now we can like pop unabashedly. Other parts still sound pretty exciting though: Both of the Madonna tracks add to the originals, and Me&Jill/Hendrix Cosby is well worthwhile. If you like Krautrock, and don't have this already, then go ahead...plenty here. So there you are: it's rubbish. It's great. Why haven't you already got it?
