A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1990’s Goo was considered to be their most accessible album to date: it does after all contain the popular tunes ‘Dirty Boots’ and ‘Kool Thing’, virtually pop hits for Sonic Youth. LP reissue on Universal / Back To Black, with a variation on that great Topshop T-shirt design as sleeve art!

9/10 Jack Customer review, 23rd November 2015
The last of five indispensable albums Sonic Youth released in the late 1980s, they had the good sense to ensure their first release with 'major label muscle' behind it was also their most accessible. Like all great Sonic Youth albums, Goo manages to simultaneously give an immediate pure noise thrill, whilst ceaselessly pushing the boundary of popular music. By ceaselessly innovating Sonic Youth have changed the face of `alternative' music. Almost every great band of the past decade is forever in their debt and Goo is the best place to begin finding out why.
