8/10 Jack 12th December 2016This is a recording that is well grounded in eighties pop culture, yet still sounds avant-garde. The album is full of Sonic Youth's trademark feedback-drenched explosions of noise and beat-inspired poetry, yet this is unlike any other SY recording. Not only do most of the songs involve a beatbox and samples, there are even Madonna and Robert Palmer covers. Humour and irreverence combined with an anything-goes approach. It sounds like the band is having a lot of fun, and that energy passes to the listener.
