8/10 Jack Customer review, 18th February 2017

This album is worth hearing for Kim Gordon's trumpet playing alone; like her vocals it's calm, world-weary and quietly amused. Jim O'Rourke also plays on the record, and his presence lends it a few more non-guitar sounds than are heard on other early Sonic Youth records - and with that a bit less guitar sound - but especially on the third track the electronics blend wonderfully with what the other Sonics are doing. Note: this isn't really a pop record, and if you expect it to be you'll probably be disappointed.
