Daydream Nation songs Product Information
Daydream Nation album for sale by Sonic Youth was released Nov 23, 1993 on the Geffen label. The double album that brought Sonic Youth to the attention of a wider audience and prompted the eager interest of a handful of major labels. DAYDREAM NATION, with its sleepy single candle flickering silently on the gatefold cover, harnessed their reckless live favourite, "Teenage Riot," while they ran gloriously roughshod over "Rain King" and "Silver Rocket," and offered the overtly camp glee of "Trilogy," which came with parts a, b and c. Daydream Nation CD music contains a single disc with 14 songs. ...See Full Description

||Perty darn good|
I think it's pretty good, but there's no need to go wetting your pants. It's a sweet album if you're into punk/alt rock. That's all that needs to be said. Spare me the righteous indignation at the fact that not everyone in the world is in love with it. Awww, silver rocket. Burnin' a hole in your pocket!

||Sonic Youth: Louder Than Life|
This album is the best disc Sonic Youth ever recorded, and easily a front-runner for best album of the eighties. This record, along with Jane's Addiction's "Nothing's Shocking", set the stage for Nirvana's violent coup of hair metal and Guns 'n' Roses style pop metal. While "Nothing's Shocking" combined metal riffs with an alt-rock edge, Sonic Youth had no intention of being so focussed or coherent on what would be the last great album of the 80's. Daydream Nation is a long, rambling, noisy, distorted, whispered, screamed exploration of all that is good and bad about contemporary music. The lyrics tell of complicated, multilayered issues that seem built for a concept album, but Daydream Nation was too big to be confined by any one concept. Everyone who listens to this record takes away something different. It's opening track, "Teenage Riot" is the anthem for anyone who hates anthems. It's the track that even SY's biggest detractors start to bob their heads to. Probably the best, least known summation of a generation with a running time a few seconds short of seven minutes. The edgy "Silver Rocket" is a noise explosion complemented by Steve Shelley's virtuosic, but never over the top drumming. Many tracks stretch over six minutes, with the vocals finishing a few minutes in, leaving the bewildered listener wandering in a sea of sublime guitar sound. On the subject of guitars... SY was influential to bands that sound nothing like them because of their insane guitar tunings. Some of these are so far removed from standard that some strings on the guitar must be changed to go to the tuning. Every single song on DN is in a tuning like this. All in all, this is easily my favorite album, and anyone who really listens to it, really gives it a chance, and then says they don't like it is lost. Pity them, and let them have their Sean Paul CDs. Sonic Youth didn't set out to win over the world, they set out to change music for anyone who will let them.

I love this album, you truly can not say you're a fan of the harder alternative rock scene(Nirvana,Pearl jam, Alice In Chains)until you have listened to this album. Thurston Moore is an amazing musician with his lyrics, and guitar riffs and music all around. Teenage Riot and Silver Rocket are among some of my favorites on this album. Teenage Riot makes you feel as if you're in a moshpit that has put on Slow-Mo, it just gives you the sense of what it truly means to be a teenager, I am 15 and I am totally into the grune/alter-rock scene. I also reccomend if you really want to be a true fan getting the Dirty album of Sonic Youth's and maybe The Pixie's Surfer Rosa or Doolittle, trust me. Amazing music! You'll cherish it.
