There was a time, more years ago than I care to remember, when new albums by revered artists were something that made me salivate with anticipation. They were cherished like some rare and precious artifact, probably because they weren't as readily aquirable / affordable to me as they are now, and were played on constant rotation for weeks on end to the point where every chord change, every tingle-inducing guitar squall, every snare sound became hard wired into my brain. I would pore over sleeve notes religiously, learn lyrics off by heart and even look for mystic messages scratched into the run off groove. Ho hum. Music can be everything to you when you're young. In middle age my appetite for challenging and innovative sounds remains voracious, perhaps more so in the download era where it's so easy to aquire more stuff than you'll ever manage to listen to in three lifetimes. Also, because I'm no longer limited in my explorations by an affiliation to a particular tribe mentality, I'll happily listen to The Fall, Mats Gustafsson in any one of his myriad ensembles, Autechre, Lee Perry and Merzbow in a single afternoon. The point is though, satisfying as it all is and for all my appetite to discover is still there, it just doesn't taste quite the same. With Thurston Moore's Chelsea Light Moving there is a sense that although well into his fifties he still feels that same adolescent rush in playing this stuff as I would have felt twenty odd years ago listening to it. And it doesn't even generate a cringe.
I adored Sonic Youth and their insatiable desire to journey into all sorts of waters, chartered and unchartered (check out the SYR series and countless numbers of collaborations and side projects) but found Thurston's solo outings mostly just okay.

In recent years, Thurston Moore has been concentrating his musical energies on acoustic projects some distance from the iconic noise on which he made his name as part of Sonic Youth in the 80s. No doubt spurred into action by the likely demise of that outlet in line with his split from long-time wife and band-mate Kim Gordon, Moore is now starting afresh with Chelsea Light Moving, ripping up the restraint of solo efforts like Trees Outside The Academy and Demolished Thoughts in favour of pure rawk.

Moore is joined by Hush Arbors guitarist Keith Wood, Pegasus and Sunburned Hand Of The Man drummer John Moloney, as well as Sonora Pine violinist-turned-bassist Samara Lubelski. All the same, it's near impossible to discuss Chelsea Light Moving without reference to Sonic Youth. After all, Moore is the main Chelsea Light Moving songwriter - it's only inevitable therefore his trademark style rises to the top of the band's mix like some sort of luxurious cream.

There's no surprise then that cuts like "Groovy & Linda" and "Heavenmetal" are so familiar, their catchy slacker-pop melodies total bread-and-butter stuff for Moore. It's comforting too to have his stoned drawl back for these same songs. There's a gateway moment however in the ever-intensifying second track "Sleeping Where I Fall" where the tempo suddenly shifts, allowing barbs of spiky punk and crunching guitar to swarm through and inundate most of what follows. All of a sudden, Chelsea Light Movement are no longer period fetishists, quickly contorting instead into a nasty squalling noise-rock entity.

seeing that i've been a muso geek for over 30 years thought i would write a review for the first time in ages....why this album? well simple.....its one of those gems that will more than likely pass alot of mainstream audiences who do like their guitary stuff but dont delve enough, also helps if you were - like me- part of the whole grunge scene mid 80's onwards, of course one of the godfathers of that scene was Sonic Youth, so if anyone who reads this is a bit unsure of what this new for 2013 Thurston Moore Project/group are like?......dont worry, for me its basically Sonic Youth 2013 style - less arty and more Raw.....and i love it.....one of the albums of 2013 that will sadly get overlooked by most....but for those into that scene and also dont mind having a flashback to their youth with a smile- get this and bung it on - wont be dissapointed.....now go and enjoy.

I don't use to comment track by track, it's not my style, but I was driving on today morning and I was listening to this amazing cd, so I decided to writte my impressions!

Ok 1) Heavenmetal - Typical SY song, rythmic and nice!
2) Sleeping Where I Fall - I always thought SY sounded like Pavement and Malkmus, this is an amazing example!
3) Alighted - It's growing in each second!
4) Lip - Typical SY
5) Groovy & Linda - Reminded me Lou Reed!
6) Burroughs - Candidate to be a classic
7) Empires Of Time - SY
8) Mohawk - I like this style, speaking, remember Velvet Underground Experiences
9) Frank O'hara Hit - If it is Frank, will be ok!
10) Communist Eyes - Back to the 80's punk Rock!!!

Nice Record!!! Long life to Thurston!!!
