Sonic Youth's fifth album and one that, along with "Evol," "Daydream Nation" and "Goo," forms the backbone of their oeuvre. What's it say that my favorite song (and I probably shouldn't be coming to a Sonic Youth album for the songs) is a cover of Crime's "Hot Wire My Heart?" It lacks a great centerpiece like "Expressway to Yr Skull" or "Teenage Riot" and their too cool for school-ness is really coming to the forefront, both in the collage artwork and the name checked in the liner notes, which include J. Mascis, Lydia Lunch, filmmaker Richard Kern and James Ellroy, who would most likely hate their guts. This reissue contains the bonus track "Master-Dik," which, along with the title, is a reference to sci-fi guru P.K. Dick. They could've used some of his unpretentious pulpy energy.

Sort of surprised to see only four stars on this one. Sister and Daydream nation are where they first had some songy songs, and complete mastery of their art & technique, without losing any of their punkiness, artiness, craziness, etc. I listen to this frequently and it never gets old.
