GOO special edition,
This review is from: Goo [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
I always felt Goo was a patchy record - Sure it has some killer toons esp. Dirty boots. But it also has some pretty forgettable toons as well - Which is why I don't rate it anywhere near as highly as most fans.
Let me now say that I do like Sonic Youth & this is a good record..
I don't think it has the same cohesion that Daydream Nation had which in my opinion is along with Sister Sonic Youths finest records.
It's all a matter of opinion - I know.
The extra disc is prob more than I needed - but I was keen to hear it prior to purchasing.
Many of the versions on the 2nd disc sound mightily close to the final versions.
If your a fan of this record - You couldn't ask for more - The booklet & presentation in general is a 5/5.
Sound wise it is excellent.
I'm giving the music a 3/5
