SONIC YOUTH - DAYDREAM NATION
THIS ALBUM MAY BE WHAT MOST CRITICS CALL THE PINNACLE OF SONIC YOUTH'S CAREER. Daydream Nation was their fifth studio album and the one that found more success than their previous efforts. Recorded in the summer of 1988 at New York's Greene Street basement studio by engineer Nick Sansano, the album was a critical success that earned Sonic Youth substantial acclaim and a major label deal. The band's surrealist lyrics and literary references were complimented by their knack for experimentalism and tendency towards noise. Daydream Nation captures one of rock's most experimental outfits at the height of their powers.
