1994’s Experimental Jet Set, Trash & No Star was kind of an unexpected beast from and for Sonic Youth. Showing the world they were more than capable of making songs that weren’t entirely reliant on discordant noise, but featuring an almost delicate side with a majority of the songs having clean guitar tones throughout. Reissue LP on Universal.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 22nd September 2016
For some reason this is perfect for around 5 in the morning, it just has that scary feeling, but in a seductive, sexy way that borders on the pornographic when Kim is droning up numbers. Kim's songs are very good on this album by the way, "Doctor's Orders" could almost be a Nirvana chorus. There are some spots that kind of pass by almost unnoticed (could have done without "Androgynous Mind"), but at least they're not grating so they fit in with the rest of the record when you feel like hearing the highlights.
