Sonic Youth's first full length LP repackaged with one of their EPs makes this vicious little number. The punk energy is here, and that strange Youth way, presenting Stooges covers like they've never been heard before. Minimal basslines are the core of all the atonal songs. Unlike later Youth, that incorporates pop and psychedelic into their sound, this is pure, insane noise. The enigmatic lyrics are delivered in manic howls or hypnotic spoken word. Not a very enjoyable Sonic Youth album, especially for a new fan, but still an fantastically odd and intriguing one.
