Lee Ranaldo’s previous solo works feature a unique range of tones and textures. While fans of the Sonic Youth guitarist have appreciated his experimental efforts over the years, many have longed for a more accessible, rock ’n’ roll Ranaldo to emerge, and that’s what happens—brilliantly—on Between the Times and the Tides. From the first roiling guitar notes and the brooding charge of “Waiting on a Dream,” it’s evident that Ranaldo’s songwriting skill is on show here. “Off the Wall” has a friendly jangle, sounding like Sonic Youth at its poppiest, and “Xtina as I Knew Her” has the shadowy undertones of guitar unrest he’s known for. Clearly we’re in good hands, with a confident Ranaldo unpacking a whole bucket of goodies for us to sample. He serves up some chewy psych-rock and no shortage of acoustic moments that are surprisingly poetic and romantic. Between the Times is a beautiful and well-crafted record, one that his patient rockist fans should adore. Wilco’s Nels Cline contributes, as do Jim O’Rourke, John Medeski, Steve Shelley, and composer/writer Alan Licht.
A good album from beginning to end!
Even better than an album's worth of LR contributions to an SY record
If you can believe it. Fantastic.
Worth the wait
As a long time SY fan I often thought Lee was never given the chance to shine this albums gives him that chance . Solid all the way through and with a great band backing Nelson Cline , John Medeski and Steve from SY on drums killer . A must for any Sonic Youth fan or even the casual listener .
