"Murray Street" is Sonic Youth's first successful convergence of envelope-pushing guitarwork and accessible songery since 1988. I'm smart enough to not go too far down the dead-end alleyway of Daydream Nation comparisons, but I'll admit it reminds me a helluva lot of that masterwork-- more so than any of their records between then and now. And I don't think it's coincidental that the two albums showcase a band more relaxed than elsewhere, letting songs stretch out to their maximum length while still coming back for a singalong-able section or two.

lp is a gatefold, only 7 tracks but still pretty good. it's nice to hear sonic youth stop messing around with those mostly noise records they'd been doing the past few years before this. features one of lee's best songs ever.
