Can a band follow the best album ever made? Sonic Youth proved you can, and then some. Goo is a great album, and even though it goes for a more conventional "sound", the music itself is way more difficult than Sister or Daydream Nation. Those two records got the fusion just right, and that kind of consistency is nearly impossible to maintain. Most people criticize Goo for being too pop-rock and too “mainstream”, but evidently they didn’t bother to listen to the album before you talk! There isn’t one bad song one here, though some take several listens to sink in, and the band's sense of humor has never been more present. The Chuck D hip hop cameo on “Kool Thing”, subject matter about dating the Virgin Mary on "Mary Christ", and the hilarious lyrics to "My Friend Goo". If these songs were "traditional radio music" like they are often labeled, maybe I would listen to the radio. The balance of humor vs. drama keeps the album afloat, as songs that tackle past tragedies ("Tunic"), old movie stars ("Mildred Pierce", the lovely mess), and just plain poetry in motion ("Disappeared", "Mote") make up the serious portion of the music. Songs of this magnitude set an example for all of rock music, and in my opinion, this is the best guitar playing found on any rock record of the 20th century (yes, better than Daydream Nation in that respect). Just listen to "Dirty Boots", "Mary Christ", "Disappeared", and "Titanium Expose" and get the example of how complicated music should be played. "Titanium Expose" in itself is one of the band's best songs, with its unbelievable structure (a song within a song within a song). There is some challenging material, like the earlier mentioned "Kool Thing", "Mildred Pierce", and the most different of all, "Cinderella's Big Score". I know what people say to themselves here, because I said it too at one point. But Sonic Youth is a band that takes risks and their difficulties make them great. If you can't get it and don't like the more difficult passages (oh, who doesn't love the four minutes of static at the end of Ranaldo's "Mote"?), I assure you will at least like something from Goo. This album remains as the 3rd in the row of great Sonic Youth masterworks. If you are interested in Sonic Youth, Goo would be a fine place to start, if not the definitive place.
