5.0 out of 5 stars Future classic, 13 May 2004
This review is from: SONIC NURSE ENH (Audio CD)
It's a cliche I know, but this really is their best album since Daydream Nation. Murray Street was a shock to everyone who had written of Sonic Youth of has-beens, a band of 40-somethings who could no longer write a decent tune and had gotten so pretentious that their most recent records were deemed unlistenable. Murray Street showed a band growing old gracefully and it had a sense of comfort to it, Sonic Youth were happy where they were, making music they wanted to make, and this time round it just happened to be excellent music. Sonic Nurse is a step forward, back into the limelight. The band have something to say, something to prove: they can still write a damn good tune. And this album is full of them, no 10 minute plus feedback jams like Karen Revisited, just straight to the point, anthemic, hard rocking, contemplative, contemporary sounding rock songs. But this isn't a simple album, this isn't Goo or Dirty, Sonic Nurse retains the tuneful levels of experimenting last seen on Daydream Nation and wraps them around some of the best songs the band have ever written.
2004 will be a good year for new music from old bands - Sonic Youth, The Cure and Mission Of Burma back to doing what they do best and teaching all their followers just how it's done.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Return to Form, 18 Jun. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Sonic Nurse (Audio CD)
A cracking album from a band whose recent efforts I have been disappointed with. If you enjoyed Sonic Youth around the Dirty/Experimental../Washing Machine era then this may sit well with you.
The stand out track is Paper Cup Exit. Quite amazing.
