A Thousand Leaves by Sonic Youth

One of the more experimental records from later on Sonic Youth, there's still plenty of tunes to be had at. It even topped The Wire's records of the year back in 1998! 'A Thousand Leaves' is full of psychedelic suites, dissonant riffing, feedback collages and the ultra-cool delivery of three of their four members. Includes the well-known piece 'Sunday'.

9/10 Jack 28th January 2015

Along with Washing Machine, A Thousand Leaves is a clear indication that Sonic Youth have transcended the barriers of punk, noise, avant-garde, etc. and have become coincident with the core of modern music and modern lyric poetry across all genres and forms. A Thousand Leaves, sporting long, autumnal, melodic meditations like Hits of Sunshine and Wildflower Soul along ennui-laden snapshots like Hoarfrost and Sunday, is a kind of symphony for the pop/rock age and is as deep and haunting as anything the classicists ever scribbled down on paper.
