this record, notably for track one, "anagrama", is my favorite record I own, no doubts. I love sonic youth, but understand that they are not for everyone. Anagrama is their pinnacle of listenability, it is the music for the dream of the story of your life. the two middle tracks seem to be schizophrenic variations/degradations of anagrama, until track four "mieux: de corrosion" which sounds to me like bombs being dropped on a car wash, with all the alarms of the cars going off. it is terrifying noise and is grandly irritating, which offsets the sheer beauty of the first track. while the fourth track is a gift to long-time sonic youth fans that have watched them evolve, the first track should be a gateway for those who have never heard SY before. No mix I make for someone lacks this song. it fits in nicely with the godspeed!, mogwai type of crescendo rock, but it is inherently beautiful and (along with SY's "unwind", "snare, girl" "beauty lies in the eye") is a wonderful testament to what sonic youth primarily does -- create something with noise that is no longer noise.

Like the epic "The Diamond Sea," the four songs have shifting sonic colors, as simple riffs build and intertwine, crossing over each other before finding a new path. It's closer to avant-garde than rock, but the music isn't purely cerebral, either. Recognizable statements float in and out of the mix, providing something of a touchstone for the free-form explorations.
