Any doubts as to the continuing relevance of Sonic Youth upon their jump to major-label status were quickly laid to rest by Goo, their follow-up to the monumental Daydream Nation. While paling in the shadow of its predecessor, the record is nevertheless a defiant call to arms against mainstream musical values; the Geffen logo adorning the disc is a moot point — Goo is, if anything, a portrait of Sonic Youth at their most self-indulgently noisy and contentious, covering topics ranging from Karen Carpenter ("Tunic") to UFOs ("Disappearer") to dating Jesus' mom ("Mary-Christ"). Even Public Enemy's Chuck D joins the fracas on the single "Kool Thing," which teeters on the brink of a cultural breakthrough but falls just shy of the mark; the same could be said of Goo itself — by no means a sellout, it nevertheless lacks the coherence and force of the group's finest work, and the opportunity to violently rattle the mainstream cage slips by.

Amazing record

Sonic Youth, the band name by itself is supercool. They were way ahead of all the grunge bands that got famous after them but they set all the standards for their followers. Like the Ramones did for a lot of other bands who got more success with the same type of music.
It takes guts to be the first in anything. The best pioneers are not the most successful ones but the ones who manage to define a new style, product or whatever without anything else for guidance but your own feeling and intuition. SY are still around while most followers are not. This album defines really well how they sound and how different the subjects and tunes of their songs can be. But each of the songs rings purity and honesty, which is probably why you'll still remember the songs of this album years later. When listening to it years later, you'll still feel the same experience you did when you heard it for the first time! A classic album!

Sonic Youth was een van de meest onwaarschijnlijke succesverhalen van de ondergrondse Amerikaanse rockwereld van de jaren 1980. Terwijl tijdgenoten R.E.M. en Hüsker Dü nogal traditioneel te werk gingen op vlak van structuur en melodie, begonnen de bandleden van Sonic Youth aan hun muziekcarrière door afstand te nemen van de traditionele rock-‘n-rollconventies. Ze werden sterk beïnvloed door de experimentalisten van The Velvet Underground en The Stooges. De band bracht talrijke succesvolle albums...
