as good as ever,
This review is from: Sonic Nurse (Audio CD)
I had lost touch with Sonic Youth over the last few years and on the evidence of this release they seem to have mellowed out somewhat (and also acquired a fifth member in Jim O'Rourke). This is a beautiful album - laid-back and sprawling tracks, opaque guitar lines topped with their usual cooler-than-anyone vocals.
Best tracks come from Kim Gordon - the wonderfully messy "KG and the Arthur Doyle handcream" and the spaced-out drone of "I love you Golden Blue" but overall there isn't a weak track here (except perhaps the bonus track). Well worth getting if you were a fan of SY in their heyday.
