ARTIST: Sonic Youth
RELEASE DATE: 1987
A Quick Overview
One year after their breakthrough EVOL, Sonic Youth continued their trend and created another masterwork, Sister. Possibly their greatest album with the exception of Daydream Nation, Sisteris also one of the greatest and most engaging albums ever recorded. Sister's production is defined by a warm tone, making it more inviting to the ear; even the barrages of guitar noise sound beautiful. Every single song on here is five-star material. Sister is a trip; perhaps one of the greatest in music history, up there with Dark Side of the Moon.
I must also stress this again as I will with any album I post; I sincerely urge you to buy this album and support the artists of these classics. You can easily get this used for around $6-$7 off of amazon.com or half.com.
This torrent is meant to introduce people to this album, and is in no way intended to act as a substitute for buying the record.
Excerpt from AMG Review:
EVOL was a major leap forward for Sonic Youth, but Sister is a masterpiece, demonstrating the group's rapidly evolving musicality. More than ever before, Sonic Youth's songs sound like actual songs, and their collages of noise, distortion, and alternate tunings are now used to provide texture and depth to the music, which is original, complex, and rewarding. Not only is there the full-throttle roar of "Tuff Gnarl," but there are shimmering layers of ambient harmonics and dissonance that are as haunting and challenging as any of their barrages of feedback. Furthermore, Sister has a warm sound, which lures the listeners into music that's defiantly arty but never indulgent. It's one of the singular art rock records of the '80s, surpassed only by Sonic Youth's next album, Daydream Nation.
