#631 Sonic Youth – Daydream Nation

Daydream Nation is the third Sonic Youth to make it on the list. I think they are great, but three albums and two more after this is overkill. I wonder if this will be better than Sister. I am sure Eric played this album, I remember the cover. It has been widely considered to be Sonic Youth’s best album and it was their last album before they were signed to a major label.

First impression is that the songs are way too long. I had trouble focusing on this album. I had to start it over a few times and I still feel as though I missed it. I have a feeling that I would need more time than I have now to dissect this album. It is really long and the song are a bit noisy. I like the music, but I have no idea what their message is to me. I reserve the right to come back to the album and change the score. 7.5/10.
