Everybody's Talking Bout The Stormy Weather....

A near perfect blend of harmony and noise. This is as good a description as any of the first CD that I bought back in the late 80's, Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation . This was my entry point into the world of Sonic Youth and to this day as soon as I hear the opening guitar chime of Teenage Riot I am hooked.

I don't consider myself to be any sort of authority on Sonic Youth but over 20 years later this album has lost none of it's quality. Kicking off with the anthemic Teenage Riot the album the album never lets up, clocking in at over 70 minutes.

Whilst most people nowadays listen to tracks rather than whole albums, this is one occasion where the album is best listened to from start to finish to take in the full range of songs.

The album is probably Sonic Youth's most accessible work and showcases the band at the top of their game.


  1. Great, great song.

  2. Quite possibly their finest moment, great opening track to a great album.
