    As I'm listening to the piece now I can only concur with the accompanying review, though not convinced about Ayler or Hendrix. I've always admired Sonic Youth's democratisation of influences, whether it be the who's who of classical avant-garde in Goodbye 20th Century or Karen Carpenter on Goo. The sheer love of those starting points is one thing, but their real strength lies in their wonderful noise aesthetic, really driven by Thurston Moore and given full reign here. This is beauty, spirit, joy in controlled noise. One of the best avant-garde releases of modern times.
