Is there a finer stamp of approval than your album appearing in a pre-millennium episode of the Simpsons? Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation, is one of the American indie underground’s epics, and was their last before signing to a major label (take from that what you will). LP box set comes with live versions, covers, and a booklet with previously unpublished photos.
8/10 Steve Customer review, 15th April 2015
I bought this because I missed the grunge seen when it first came round. I didn't get it, I thought there was much better music around at the time and I was a sucker for not wanting to follow the in crowd. Now I've heard a lot over the years about Sonic Youth but heard nothing by them. I've recently bought myself a turntable and bought a few (well if you can say 150 lps over a year a few) records. I've recently finished collecting all the Nick Cave albums so I needed the next band to move onto so I went with Sonic Youth. Yes I like this album but I also bought 'Goo' and 'Dirty' box sets at the same time. I think all three are good but 'Goo' stands out above them all. I am as we speak waiting on my copy of 'Bad Moon Rising'. I will be collecting the rest of the sonics albums too. I'm rather glad I missed them when they were first out because now i think I can listen to the music and like it for the music not just because the music was made by a band we all should have liked.

I think Sonic Youth fans all have their favourite Sonic Youth album. This is due to their three decade spanning career, it depends which was the one that came out when your interest in them spiked. For me it's a toss up between "Goo" and "Dirty". I know people a few years older than me that would pick "Daydream Nation". This is classic Sonic Youth after all, a double LP too. It opens with "Teenage Riot" which is probably their best song and sits nicely alongside Dinosaur Jr's "Freak Scene" as a perfect 80s alternative slacker anthem. Then there's "Silver Rocket" , what more could you want? Oh, how about "Eric's Trip"? A song so good Julie Doiron named her band after it. This is a brilliant album, if you're going to buy one Sonic Youth album - don't - buy three, this and the the other two I mentioned. Then checkout their other stuff but avoid "NYC Ghosts and Flowers"
