Magnificiently Explosive Explorative Sound Tones
scott | Buffalo, NY | 05/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a defining moment for the guitar in the world of "experimental-avant garde" music. Thurston Moore (The Sonic Youth) w/ bombastic guitar driven explosions in close quarters with the percussive drilling of William Winant (played percussion for various composers and compositions by Zorn, Ferrari, Feldman...etc) and Tom Surgal (drummer for Rudolph Grey & The Blue Humans). Highly influenced by free and improvised jazz skronk and the freeform movements by such guitar luminaries as Ray Russell (recent reissue on Jim O'Rourke's Moikai) & Sonny Sharrock (played w/ Pharoah Sanders, Last Exit w/ Brotzmann, Laswell...) Great own for any avant-guitar-rock fan. Also equally worth checking out is the same trio on 'Lost In The City' (Intakt records) and Moore w/ Surgal on 'Klangfarbenmelodiee...and the colorist strikes primitiv' (on Dead C. honcho Bruce Russell's Corpus Hermiticum label)."
Ecstatic Piece

"Ahh, that record is one of the best pieces in my collection. It's really a classic piece: long, tempo changing, stirring, emotional. It's not really music in the usual sense of this term - and if you thought that can be applied to any Sonic Youth / Thurston Moore record, what can i say, think again. Daydream Nation is Puff Daddy near this one. It can't really be described, compared to anything ... Before i bought it i asked other Sonic Youth fans on the internet, how it is, they said "it's really a jazz improvisation". OK, i said, i like jazz and i like Sonic Youth, i'll get it. Well, it doesn't sound like Gillespy, Miles Davis or Bud Powell. It's a different kind of improvisation. Give it its fair chance."
A piece of sheer beauty

"Thurston teams with two percussionists in a live recording featuring over an hour of intense improvisation. Not for the weak, this amazing document of a great night furthermore declares Thurston to be one of the truly amazing improvisors of our time. Gentle at times but always exciting. Put it on in a dark room with no distractions and invision yourself float to heaven."
