Sonic Youth's fifth full-length release is regularly cited as their masterpiece, establishing the art-damaged quartet as part of the pantheon of 1980s American indie rock alongside R.E.M., the Replacements, and Husker Du. Originally released as a double album (remember those?), Daydream Nation is 70 minutes of punk, sprawl, and white noise. Not only is it nerve- wracking, otherworldly, and prone to clear the room of less-adventurous listeners, it's also frequently gorgeous and maybe even a little pop. Maybe. Featuring the anthemic "Teen Age Riot", a chugging, Velvet Underground-like masterpiece that practically predicts the alternative rock revolution that would ensue three years later, the Youth's last indie effort constantly challenges and amazes. --Neal Weiss

Sonic Youth are my all time favourite band, and I consider the albums which bookended "Daydream Nation" to be outstanding and among their finest.
I try to revisit this album every few months, in the belief that I may suddenly have an epiphany moment, and realise I was wrong and that this is an excellent SY album. It's not happened as yet.
I can't help feel that this was a sellout in order to gain wider acceptance pending a contract with a major label.
There are definitely some songs that rise above the others in their construction, but generally I feel this is a mediocre alt. rock album
with none of the detuned sonic exploration/ experiments that SY excel at.
Another thing I have noticed is that no good alternative band sounds like another. Sonic Youth don't 'sound' like anyone else ever. Inspired by VU's minimalist melodies and produced with the 80's guitar ethic of 'heavy is best' means this album is set up to be a drab and dreary ordeal. But it isn't, in fact it is absolutely fantastic.
Though at first listening it is only impressive the second will have you stunned. The album mixes both origional texture and guitar tone and timbre with insightful lyrics which cynically satirise 'gen-x' and are sung with the scornful voices of Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon. All the tracks evoke a different sense of the apathetic attitudes of the 80's and 90's.
The music is quite engaing and listening to this should be done in one sitting ie. no skipping tracks, no listening to one track only. Engage your mind slightly and you will enjoy this album emmensly.
