4.0 out of 5 stars Best served with lashings of volume!, 4 May 2006
This review is from: Goo [Deluxe Edition] (Audio CD)
I have to completely disagree with the last reviewer. Nirvana fans will hate this record. They'll buy it and realise that Kurt Cobain wasn't that iconic after all. SY were the movers and shakers!

This album is aggressive youth, but not in a Daydream Nation proggy/punk way. This is a different aspect completely. Somewhere between the metallic drone and the beautiful noisecapes they create, they found a place on this record that is constantly surprising and re-defining their own style. A truly marvellous record.

Stand out tracks.. Dirty Boots -simply for the most catchiest riff SY came out with, Tunic (song for Karen) - the only record that could give a tribute to Karen Carpenter, slate the media and sound so cool in the same song, Mildred Pierce, for scaring the life out of me just when I was comfortable!

Great album, but not necessarily a good buy for a Sonic Youth virgin. For a good intro to SY I'd recommend getting Daydream Nation and Sonic Nurse.
