Reissue of Sonic Youth’s 2000 album NYC Ghosts & Flowers. Scene leaders of no wave and noise rock in NY since beginning in 1981, they had all of their equipment nicked whilst on tour in 1999 so were forced to write without their usual modified guitars and effects. The results are quite profound from what you would usually expect from them.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 3rd November 2016
Catchy songs are just that--they catch you, pull you in, then then when they are finished with you, they leave. True artistry may be found in catchy songs (see "Schizophrenia"), but look deeper and longer on NYC Ghosts & Flowers. Give this record time, thought, and energy, and you will not be disappointed. Thurston's overly dramatic vocals on the coda of "Small Flowers Crack Concrete" borders on embarrassing, but the remainder of the work makes up for this momentary lapse. Stop looking for rock songs and just let the noise swirl in your head.
