Your favourite uncle of noise rock, ok, maybe more like wisen parents, Sonic Youth’s 1983 album Confusion Is Sex is a dark backwards step into their more primitive state. Noisy, disjointed and clanky as hell. Guitars being destroyed for your listening pleasure. Repressed by Goofin’, good work guys. Yes. Just Yes.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 12th December 2016This is not a pretty album, this is not for everyone by any means; it's pure noise and I love it. "Kill Yr Idols" definitely achieves the menace the Sex Pistols were going for, blowing away any sign of melody with a vengeance. There's an immediacy and charming rawness to the overall sound of Confusion is Sex. Despite the tuneless shouting, the untuned guitars, the absence of professionalism (see: the brutally lo-fi version of "I Wanna Be Your Dog"), this album isn't as inaccessible as you might think. Somehow, the songs just move.
