Building on the sound of their previous work, Sonic Youth released Sister in 1987 to critical acclaim. The album has gone on to become a favorite of fans and critics everywhere, landing on numerous best of the 80’s lists and garnering top scores from countless reviews and publications. Easily their most accessible record to this point in the bands history, the band keeps the trademark feedback and noisy soundscapes but combines them with more and more mainstream rock and pop ideas and song structures.
Again challenging their listeners but with a far more satisfying and obtainable reward. Inspired by Science Fiction writer Philip K. Dick and his deceased fraternal twin sister, the album, featuring the favorites “Schizophrenia,” Tuff Gnarl” and “Cotton Crown,” explores the mind and prods the emotions, and captures the band ascending to the height of their career.
