The album itself isnt that good. Side A is great with Dirty Boots and Kool Thing, but Side B has quite a few duds. Its just not as good as Daydream Nation, Sister or Dirty. Few albums are, though. What, however, is great here, is the album cover. Artwork by Raymond Pettibon. The original image is a paparazzi photograph taken from a 1966 murder trial. In the photo is Maureen Hindley and David Smith who were both key witness in the Moors Murders trial. Maureens sister Myra murdered 5 children and asked David to help bury them. David instead reported his sister-in-law, who got charged with life sentence and the press called her 'the most evil woman in Britain'. Here's the original photo: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Ejl3S9aWoAEd-0k?format=jpg&name=small

This is the epitome of art for art's sake. It's so far up it's own ass it has become some kind of bagel. Not catchy, interesting, captivating or moving. It's the type of pretentious garbage I absolutely hate. It charted so poorly because it's bad music. It's a cult band, with an Andy Worhol type of self importance so vulgar I barely call it music. But hey, it's cool to be like "the themes explored really speak to the general malaise of the time...." get fucked. 0/10

Hey, this doesn't suck. It's like Sonic Youth finally discovered the magic elements of "song structure" and "composition" and used those to make an album that wasn't unlistenable bullshit noise. Still not, like, good or anything. But it's not awful and that seems to be the bar for the Sonic Youth albums on this list.

I love the start of this album you get a mix of noise, psychedelic, pop mix especially with the female voices starting in the track ‘Tunic’. The album felt very fresh even over 20 years after release, it seems like it was very experimental for the time (not sure if other Sonic Youth albums are similar). Even the heavy noise tracks like ‘Mildred Pierce’ and ending with ‘Titanium Expose’ were fantastic for keeping the dark & psychedelic mood of the album. The only track that felt massively out of place was ‘Cinderella’s Big Break’ as it was more upbeat than the track before and after, it felt like a massive jump in the movement of the album.

Great record! Love the tracks with Kim on vocals, they have a sort of effortless cool to them. Sonic Youth's most commercial album. For some reason I remember thinking this record was kind of uneven but coming back to it now it's pretty strong all around. It is kind of weird to have Chuck D on a track just to say a few kind of cliche rapper things in the background. Weird 90's thing to do (REM's Radio Song being a similar example).

I’m a big fan of sonic youth. Post-Punk Shoegaze with a bit of garage punk in there. I love what they do with two guitars and pedal fx. Their albums vacillate between symphonic distorted euphoric trances and obnoxious whiny punk rock. Whether or not I love one of their albums always depends on which dominates the album. Disapearer, Dirty boots, Cinderella’s big score are three of the former, solid sonic build up culminated by a great climax and fx driven sonic breakdown to bring it home softly. I’m able to disappear into these songs and the wall of harmonic distortion they create—somehow they are able to find a harmonic balance in there. But then there’s always a few songs with Kim monotone spoken word about something I don’t care about—generally these are the songs I skip. Mildred pierce was going great until someone started squealing. Sonic Youth can be so hit or miss, but it’s always compelling, generally an album reflects like a grassroots zine, edgy, experimental, sometimes ugly, sometimes beautiful, rarely boring. Compared to some of the other one note albums we’ve listened to this one has a lot more to say. That being said there’s a few sonic youth albums that shine a bit brighter, so this garners a 3 from me.

Sería un poco repetitivo seguir hablando de Sonic Youth ya para su tercer disco en esta lista. Siguen cuadrando mucho con mis gustos. Este es el que siempre se me ha hecho su mejor disco; mucho más melódico con canciones más estructuradas y más accesible que los otros trabajos que realizaron. No se pierde el lado experimental pero se acercan un poco más a la gente. A pesar de todo lo que me gusta el grupo sigo pensando que tres discos fue demasiado. Probablemente solo este y Daydream Nation eran suficientes, o incluso si solo hubiera estado este disco presente podría haber sido más que suficiente. Mucho de mi agrado, ya hable bastante de Sonic Youth, un poco sobrerrepresentado en la lista.

I didn't discover Sonic Youth until 1992, when Dirty was released. I quickly devoured their entire catalog, but Daydream Nation was the album I connected with the most.

WoW on se rapproche du chef d’œuvre, les instruments sont forts, les Vocals sont pas incroyables mais sont originales et ténébreux. Ça ressemble à rien d’autre et ça s’écoute comme du bonbon ce qui est ma définition du chef d’œuvre. Je l’évite, les intro, les interludes et les outro de toune. Ça scrap là vibe et ça ajoute rien d’autre. On est punk oué !!! Je lévite: pas mal toute les tounes, la chanteuses je l’ai jamais vu mais j’ai le goût d’elle !!

4.1 - Here's that legendary Sonic Youth sound I feel like I've been missing. "Daydream Nation" and "Dirty" seem to find the band with some of its edges polished down. Here Sonic Youth is fully immersed in its fascination with feedback, strange guitar tunings, unusual chords progressions and riffs. Some cringe moments like the political musings on "Kool Thing" and when she keeps singing "PU!" on "My Friend Goo." To me, these add to the overall charm of an energetic record that sounds like a reference piece.

Progressive for the period. I wish I would have had my first listen a couple of decades ago. I'd say it still holds strong. There was a section at the end of Mildred Pierce that foreshadowed a lot of the thrashier and aggressive sides of punk. It was unique and enjoyable.

Noise Noise Noise and more Noise. Beautiful Noise. Sonic Youth you do it like no other, going at it like a bull in the heather. Kim Gordon didn't get enough props for her work in this band. Thurston Moore uses a Big Muff to very different effect to how I did when I was younger and more of a Kool Thing. Scream, squelch, drive, dive and rise again. One thing is for certain. I'd love to jam some of these songs live and loud. Noise Noise Noise and I love it.

This is an excellent album. Sonic Youth really mastered the effective use of distortion, feedback and noise better than anyone I can think of. A lot of bands would follow in Sonic Youth’s footsteps, but ultimately there is nothing else out there like them in music. The songs on Goo are moody and hard burning with a great, menacing undertone. Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo’s explorations of guitar are brilliant and fascinating. They push the instrument into places you didn’t even know existed. Moore and Kim Gordon's alternating vocals just ooze with an insouciance that’s so evocative of the mood of that era. Also frankly, this album just rocks. Fave Songs: Tunic, Titanium Expose, Disappearer, Dirty Boots, Mote, Kool Thing

This album is noisy AF but surprisingly listenable. I think Kool Thing is equal to Daydream Nation's Teen Age Riot, and the rest of this album is pretty solid also. Getting your head and bashed by a wall of guitar sound is offset nicely by Kim Gordon's laid back vocals eg on Tunic. According to Wiki, at one point Moore's amplifier overheated and exploded but they were fascinated by the results so they kept it for Scooter and Jinx. That's the stuff of legend.

Simple, catchy riffs. I like the song writing better on this LP than the debut. And the feedback excursions that bookend the songs don’t go on for as long. Giving Kim Gordon the mic a little more was a good idea. Kool Thing is a great song.

I like Kim's songs in particular. I wasn't aware Karen Carpenter died from anorexia related problems at age 32. Tunic's a good song and it's cool that this topic is addressed in song. Kool Thing is also a good song and it's brave to attack the Black Panthers. The second half of the album starts to experiment more with noise. The solos and,  in particular, the long fade in Mote are good examples. My views on noise change over time. I have learned to understand  that musicians have an ability to hear and appreciate sounds that us mere mortals will never be able to appreciate.  I'm good with most of the noise on this one.

Quoique ma chanson préférée du groupe (Teen Age Riot) soit sur l'album Daydream Nation, parmi les albums du groupe que j'ai entendu, Goo est mon préféré dans son ensemble. L'expérimentation du bruit et des guitares est bien maîtrisée et c'est tout de même agencé en chansons. Les chansons de Kim Gordon qui n'est pas une grande chanteuse, mais une bonne bassiste, sont mieux interprétées et moins agaçantes sur cet album que sur Dirty. J'aime bien la collaboration avec J Mascis de Dinosaure Jr sur Mote. Pièces préférées: Dirty Boots, Kool Thing, Mote, Mildred Pierce et Titanium Expose

J'aime bien Sonic Youth Il faut être dans le mood mais quand le moment est propice, ça le fait bien J'adore le ton nonchalant de kim Gordon. J'aime un peu moins quand c'est Thurston qui chante. Du gros fuzz des layers de bruits de guit, c'est abrasif mais en même temps ça bouge et les beats de drum rendent le tout plutôt facile à écouter Du bon art rock, band majeur à écouter certainement et finalement on a des albums qui valent la peine d'être sur cette liste Sans Sonic Youth pas de Nirvana

Recently, I reviewed a Britpop LP and commented that it was either my age or my nationality that was presenting an obstacle to my understanding of what the artists were trying to express. A listen to 'Goo' confirms that it must be a cultural thing rather than age, for most of 'Goo’s' themes and name dropping I did comprehend- ‘Tunic,’ for example, as a platform to uncovering the root causes of anorexia, while honoring the musical legacy of Karen Carpenter, or the criticism of misogynistic attitudes among male rappers and the hypocrisy of African American rappers, in particular- LL Cool J, to be exact- in perpetuating this archaic climate (‘Kool Thing’). I don’t know how important a comprehensive understanding of Sonic Youth’s lyrics is anyway to one’s enjoyment of their music. I don’t mind some mysteries left unsolved: What does satan (who, in the place of a cat, got someone’s tongue), a liason with a witch in a coffee truck, and the phrase six-sex-six have to do with ‘Dirty Boots’ on the opening track, and what do those dirty boots even signify? 'Goo’s' lyrical proclivities aside, Sonic Youth is always more about the music. Kim Gordon’s bass remaining one note steady while Steve Shelly goes all Keith Moon on his kit, and guitarists Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo sonically swirl around and around, like a pair of tornados emanating from their amplifier fans. And somehow it always works. Sonic Youth is liquid fire. A sure way to create some goo. And I'm glad to get stuck in it.

Certainly accessible, with the experimental bits spread unevenly across the runtime. The first few tracks are certainly the strongest, though the fact that Chuck D is so easy to miss is disappointing. It would be a stronger record if it was more firmly in the pop-structure or noisy-sound camp. Or more Kim: Her appearances were the strongest songs and sections of songs.

Reminds me a little of sleigh bells or white stripes. An old school kind of sound that could easily pass for music of today. Most songs are too long, and I can't hear 90% of what they're saying.

A bit of a mixed bag, although I like it on whole. Has its highlights: Each of the vocalists has a great song, including "Dirty Boots, "Kool Thing" and "Mote", but some songs like "Mary-Christ" and "Cinderella's Big Score" are just a waste of time. The musicianship is stellar, some amazing drumming and the weaving wall of guitar noise is hypnotizing at times.

"Kool Thing" is obviously a killer track that really steps up when the rest of this album does not. Their album "Daydream Nation" seemed a lot more earnest of an effort to me. Like it was just naturally an interesting and cool take on indie guitar rock, while this one felt like Sonic Youth knew they were seen as a "cool" band and really tried to sound like it. I mean why name your album after a goofy ass, childish track like "Goo," if you didn't want everyone to think "Oh whoa they just really don't give a fuck, sick. Yeah the song sucks but they're sticking it to pop music." Idk, I just have a hangup with Sonic Youth's pretension because I don't think they are making the artistic statements to back it up.

The “Pump Up the Volume” movie soundtrack introduced me to Sonic Youth - great soundtrack! and pretty good film too - “Titanium Expose” was the cut from Goo that made the cut. Overalll, pretty good Goo. I like the hit, “Kool Thing”, and I really like the first half of “Mote”, but the second delves into experimental art/noise/rock that turned me off. A solid 3.5, but I’m rounding down; the good sections just can’t pull the messy parts up to a 4.

I want Sonic Youth to be a jam band. The world needs a noise rock jam band. I like Murray Street. They jam on Murray Street. An album called Goo could definitely jam. There's some jam, some noise, lots of indifference, some cool as hell Kim Gordon. I really liked it, and it brought me zero joy. It took two days to get through it. Maybe it's been too packed of a work week and work weekend. The end of Disappearer really does it for me. I love how they use suspended chords. Imagining a Sonic Youth live show in 1990 NYC. Is it a shared experience? People are not outwardly expressing emotion. Is there a hidden, individual trancendance that each person is experiencing in stoic isolation, shoulder to shoulder? Are people just thinking way too hard?

Sonic Youth on ollut itselleni aina hieman liian taiteellista rokkiräminää, vaikka olen sille mahdollisuuksia antanut. Thurston Mooren soololevyt ovat olleet paljon enemmän omaan makuuni. Tämänkin levyn kohokohdat ovat Mooren laulamat "normaalit" indierock biisit, kuten Dirty Boots ja Disappearer. Kokonaisuuden pilaa kuitenkin ihme instrumentaali- ja mölinäsekoilut kuten Mote ja Mildred Pierce. Epätasainen levy, mutta parhaat hetket nostavat kokonaisuuden kuitenkin lievästi plussan puolelle. Ylöspäin pyöristyvä 2,5.

Never previously gave this band much of a listen, despite being a fan of a lot of the bands that they influenced and inspired, but I really liked this record. There are good songs, but with the addition of lots of layered noise and feedbacking guitars, which is definitely my kind of thing when done well (which it is here). Not sure how often I would listen to it, but good background music for when working.

This was another surprise because I always have some previous bad impression of Sonic Youth, but this album was pretty good. The first songs are great songs and if the album ended there, it deserved 4 or 5 stars. The last songs were a little bit strange, too experimental for an album that does not start with an experimental approach. I don't dislike these experimental songs, but also don't love them.

The older I get, the more I like noise in music, but my relationship with it is complex and ever-evolving. In general, I enjoy noise as a way to deepen the emotional content of music or to provide complex sonorities that are unachievable any other way, rather than noise for its own sake. Sonic Youth challenges this idea, making noise the central component of their music, overshadowing composition, or even being an element in composition. That's a bit much for me, which is why an album like Goo (or Dirty) is an ideal entry point. On these albums, Sonic Youth retreats a bit from their initial focus and subordinates the noise elements in favor of pop songwriting, at least to some degree. But there are some problems here. Not every song is as assured and magnetic as Kool Thing, Tunic or Goo, and it's no coincidence that those songs are fronted by Kim Gordon, an infinitely more charismatic vocalist than Thurston Moore. But for me, the more conventional songwriting provides much-needed ballast for the varied guitar squalls of Moore, Lee Reynaldo, and guest guitar terrorist J Mascis. The tug of war between traditional rock conventions and sonic terrorism makes for an invigorating listen.

Listening to Goo pretty much summed up my feelings for Sonic Youth. It's respectable, has some great songs and interesting subject matter, but don't love it.

I wouldn't buy or download it all but will definitely revisit some tracks I liked.

I absolutely love Sonic Youth, and that's not changing here. This is probably their most accessible album, very noisy but came before the grunge movement, so you don't have the inspirations that made their next album Dirty so amazing. It's fantastic for its era, but honestly doesn't have as many great songs as other albums. There were some odd experimental choices that are cool and impressive but not too great. To appeal to a mass audience, you have some lighter hits too, but besides "Kool Thing", they lack the Sonic Youth charm and so they feel like a marketable compromise. Still, I enjoyed the album and there were plenty of standout moments. Favorites: Kool Thing, Moot

Bueno a ver, Sonic Youth es una banda que siempre he querido escuchar, ya que según tengo entendido The Velvet Underground es una de sus grandes influencias, y definitivamente se puede apreciar bastante bien con este disco, pese a que creo que las expectativas me han jugado una mala pasada. La primera mitad del álbum es genial. El opener Dirty Boots y su infeccioso riff son un highlight del disco. Me encanta la letra temática de Tunic y los backing vocals en Mary-Christ son tremendos. Kool Thing, la canción mas icónica del disco, es otro punto altísimo en la tracklist, y es una gran sorpresa la aparicion de Chuck D (Public Enemy). A partir de aquí, al menos en la primera escucha, se empieza a desinflar un poco. Se siguen apreciando los rasgos por los que tengo entendido se caracterizaban Sonic Youth, su uso de la disonancia y de los efectos en las guitarras. Aun así, creo que el album es difícil de descifrar del todo en la primera escucha, y preveo que voy a estar reescuchando este disco bastante. Quizás encuentre algo más de lo que he encontrado ahora, o quizás no.

A few really great tracks, especially on the first half. Tunic and Kool Thing are keepers. Vibes of Velvet Underground in a 90s setting. It’s very distracting, however, that they seem to be fascinated and self-impressed by the noise and sound they can make with abused electronics without having any intentions of meaning in it. And “it’s just ennui and nihilism man,” wouldn’t convince me at all. What they’re singing, particularly the lady vocalist, is very important and deeply felt.

Sonic Youth is the first repeat artist I have received on this list so far, and they were not a band I necessarily wanted to come back to after visiting the overly abstract 'EVOL'. I looked back at my review for that album before giving 'Goo' a listen, and I said that I could see them possibly progressing/diving more into a traditional pop structure through future releases. After giving this album from four years later a listen, I definitely found it more accessible and entertaining overall while not straying too far away from the avantgarde style the band had in their earlier work. They arguably took the safe route by cleaning things up a bit (not that it's pop in the slightest), but I feel it worked for the best. 'Dirty Boots' and 'Kool Thing' were really solid alternative rock songs (I recognized KT from Guitar Hero III, but I feel like the game might have used a rerecorded version as this sounded different from what I am used to hearing). The overt weirdness was still present in tracks like 'Tunic', 'Mote', and 'Mildred Pierce', but most of the time, the strange moments were pushed towards the end of the song instead of extended across a whole track which was an improvement. The cleaner production and flow of the album also help make these abstract moments less polarizing. There was nothing on here that I absolutely loved, but I enjoyed it overall and can respect their progression. 3/5. NOTE: Sonic Youth somehow has five (!) albums on the 1001 Albums list. I'm not saying they are a bad group, but that high amount puts them in the "best band ever" category which I would definitely disagree with. Maybe my opinion will change as I listen to more of their work.

Guitars! Lots of guitars! I’m happy to get some classic alt-rock on this list because there are a lot of classic bands like Sonic Youth I’ve never listened to before. Cool to listen to this right after the Velvet Underground albums. You can draw a pretty straight line from them to Sonic Youth, especially the noisy back half of “Mote.” I dig the energy more than the songwriting. Not a lot of songs stood out to me, at least on a first listen. I bet they were great to see live though.

I’ve never quite been on board with all the Sonic Youth hype. The first time I heard “Daydream Nation”, I couldn’t really stick with it and ended up half dozing off. I was only half-listening and it may well have caught me on an off-day: Sonic Youth are a band who might reward repeated listens. In “Goo”, they supposedly levered their sound towards a broader audience, alienating their devoted fans as they screamed towards the mainstream. It’s not as if they were lip-syncing on Top of the Pops every week, more just trying a bit harder to get to a melody. As enjoyably uptempo as “Goo” may be, it’s still just a bit too sour without enough sweetness for my taste. It feels a bit like The Velvet Underground’s early period reimagined for a late 80s audience, foreshadowing shoegaze and grunge without possessing enough nuance to really tick. When the band really commit to aggression, it can be astounding. The explosion of noise three minutes into “Dirty Boots” is the runaway success of “Goo”: passionate fury, howling feedback, with a meaty riff and juicy hook over the top. If the rest of the album can never quite match it, it’s because it encapsulates all the best qualities from the outset: they don’t leave much room to go. The other highlights are the similarly uptempo, fiery tracks: “Mary-Christ”, “Mote” and “Cinderella’s Big Score” are all enjoyable, if sometimes overlong. On the other side, the songs with Kim Gordon deadpanning her way through the vocals might have great lyrical depth, but if I’m being honest they feel a bit hit and miss. “Kool Thing”, despite being the lead single, doesn’t do much for me and is one of the most bizarre ways to include a rapper I could think of. As much as I’d like to be cool enough to have Sonic Youth as one of my favourite bands, I think they’re still howling way over my head.

Cet album est un exemple parfait d'un album que je n'adore pas, mais qui a clairement marqué l'histoire. J'ai fais une recherche et ce groupe est adulé par les fans de musique pour l'influence qu'il a eu sur ses contemporains. Je suis certain que c'est vrai, mais pour une personne l'écoutant en 2021, alors que plusieurs autres artistes ont utilisés, et surtout perfectionner, les avancées amené par cet album, c'est difficile de l'apprécier à sa juste valeur. Je réalise qu'une liste composée des 1001 album à écouté avant de mourir ''en raison de leur impact sur l'histoire de la musique'' serait très différente d'une liste basée simplement sur la qualité du produit final.

This has a few moments where it doesn't suck. "Kool Thing" was actually halfway cool, funnily enough. And overall I'll have to admit it's at least more accessible than other shit I've heard from this band. But it also is well and truly still 100% in that space where they try to pass themselves off as punk, when really it's just noisy Gen X loser rock. Jangly fuzz guitars, strange/pointless song structures, the guy sings like a wuss and the chick can't sing at all. Or maybe she's just really punk, ha ha. 2/5.
