1988 was a hyperactive year fOr Sonic Youth. A time of side projects. A highly productive discovery phase, they should finally weld together a classic band. As Ciccione Youth they recorded cover versions of Madonna as the legendary "Into The Groovy". As Sonic Death they looked back at their early stage, which began with an avant-garde noise thunderstorms in the "Symphony No.3" of Experimental guru Glenn Branca. About FIVE albums they had explored the full range of New York No-Wave scenery between feedback orgies and high-speed tunes. Now everything fell together in those two summer months in the Green Street Studio. Guitarist Lee Renaldo said at the time that "Daydream Nation" a direct result of the numerous live performances of that time was. "We had nothing Planned and were again very free-flowing on it. Various sound surfaces were running over each other. A work like a painting where produced with simple means something very complex. "
Already the cover artwork, the simple and sublime Gerhard Richter Painting "candle" maps, marks a change of the previous Sonic Youth aesthetics. Even the slow Einklimpern the first song "Teen Age Riot" tells of a now relaxed and confident dealing with their own (sound) past.

With their jingelnden, scratching and oddly tuned guitars Sonic Youth have also straight punk-songs like "Silver Rocket" run aground in a distortion-cascade to weiterzurocken several bars later calmly. Repeats melodies suddenly crashed into the wall. With "Provindence" announces a trip from piano loops and rumble to the rocker ballad "Candle", which in turn is brutally blown up in their midst. Emotion and structures that Sonic Youth merge over 14 songs to a complex dynamics.

No wonder really that Kurt Cobain, the album in the "personal preference" list of his favorite albums led. Almost twenty years later, "Daydream Nation" in all relevant decades charts of Rolling Stone About
