Rank the Tracks: Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation (1988)

Postby Honorio » Sun Aug 13, 2017 4:05 pm

Let's start a teen age riot!



Sonic Youth's "Daydream Nation" (1988)

Tracklisting:
01 | Teen Age Riot
02 | Silver Rocket
03 | The Sprawl
04 | 'Cross the Breeze
05 | Eric's Trip
06 | Total Trash
07 | Hey Joni
08 | Providence
09 | Candle
10 | Rain King
11 | Kissability
12 | Trilogy: a) The Wonder b) Hyperstation z) Eliminator Jr.

I've decided to count "Trilogy" as an only track and not three because in the initial release was like that, even if posterior releases (including the Spotify album) list it as three separate tracks.

Don't look back in anger, we'll meet Oasis on a couple of weeks...

This was a present in the summer of '94 for my 16th birthday.

Ha, I think I know where "Providence" is ending up Sunday.
Hole – Pretty on the Inside. 1 star/5.
Dear God, is there a single song here? (Imagine buying The Buzzcocks' Singles Going Steady on the same day, and having to compare the two.) Somehow, their next time at bat, they got 500 million times better.

Possibly my all-time favorite album, still the essential alt rock album out there. Only 'I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One' competes in terms of quality (not influence), in my opinion.

1. Silver Rocket
2. Teen Age Riot
3. Total Trash
4. Hey Joni
5. Trilogy
6. Cross The Breeze
7. Eric's Trip
8. Sprawl
9. Candle
10. Rain King
11. Kissability
12. Providence
