Anyone know where I might find the Sonic Youth/ Jim O'Rourke album Invito al ĉielo?
Edit: ok forget I asked, found it in iTunes. For some reason wasn't coming up in search.

I'm guessing that the hype has gone and the music has been left behind to stand on its own merits.
Do you need to bother? It depends which Sonic Youth might appeal to you, as they went through various phases:-
- early albums are as aggressive as punk
- tristan's pick of Bad Moon Rising is "an eight-song tapestry of droning guitar feedback, distant clattering percussion, and dreamy vocal mumblings"
-their mid-career albums are more conventional hard rock, with some excellent long guitar passages.
-in parallel with that, they recorded the very experimental "SYR"series of avant-garde material. In my opinion, most of those albums are short on songs and long on self-indulgence, but of course many people here like that kind of unstructured approach to music.
Here's Mondo Bungle, OH and others talking me through their discography, with Mondo and me deciding that "Diamond Sea" was their best song ev :-
