Each track earns five stars, but what is the corporate logic behind compiling Sonic Youth greatest hits? Sonic Youth fans are well-known completists. Sonic Youth are a classic album-rock band and songs have no meaning taken out of context. Even if it is supposed to be a "the best" compilation, or an introduction, some of the shiniest tracks from 80's SY catalogue are missing - notably "Tom Violence", "Green Light", "Schizophrenia", "She's in a Bad Mood", "Catholic Block" ... oh, well, should i go on?
The only reason i give this miserable waste of plastic two stars instead of one is the curious inclusion of "Macbeth", which really is the best track from the obscure Ciccone Youth rekkord. Mind you, that Ciccone Youth is still worth buying in its completeness, despite its wackyness and the extra star is given to the record company just for NOT ditching Ciccone Youth at all.
the songs are all good, from teenage riot to shadow of a doubt but most of us SY fans have them all anyway. if your new to SY then by all means click buy but otherwise move along.
Buy this album and you might become a SY junkie.....join the club we all know how you feel
