Bad Moon Rising was only the second record for these presidents of noise rock, and saw a reverence for classic rock and all its idealism hit a brick wall of distortion an disdain. Sonic Youth made feedback the new pop music, and this record helped them on their way to that very reasoned idea: this is a piece of accessible dissonance.

Bad Moon Rising by Sonic Youth

8/10 Jack 19th May 2015

After the claustrophobic nightmare (I mean that as a compliment) of Confusion is Sex came Bad Moon Rising. And yes it does seem quite a bipolar album. Not as scary as Confusion but then not as entirely mellow as their recent releases. Obviously the most accessible track here is Death Valley 69 with additional vocals from Lydia Lunch. It's good but what makes this album really good is it's sense of flow - there's no sense of upstaging the other one or the other track. Sure it has it's highlights but it doesn't feel like a disjointed album.
