Sonic Youth Daydream Nation on 2LP + Download Card

1988's Daydream Nation was Sonic Youth’s sixth full-length, their first double-LP, and their last for an indie label before signing with Geffen. Widely considered to be their watershed moment, the album catapulted Sonic Youth into the mainstream and proved that indie bands could enjoy wide commercial success without compromising their artistic vision. 

Daydream Nation kicks off with the anthemic "Teenage Riot," again pairing Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore vocally, and never lets up, boasting an unprecedented three Lee Ranaldo songs, another Mike Watt appearance (on the solemn piano/amp burnout collage "Providence"), and the sprawling "Trilogy" which closes the record.

Daydream Nation has been recognized as a classic of its time: Pitchfork ranked it #1 on their “100 Greatest Albums of the 1980s”; Spin listed it at #13 on their “125 Best Albums of 1985-2010”; Rolling Stone put it at #45 on their “100 Best Albums of the Eighties” list and #328 on their “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.” It was one of 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry in 2006.

2007 saw the release of an expanded four-disc vinyl box set of Daydream Nation, but now the album is back in its original form as a 2LP-set after years of being out of print and highly sought after. As a special 21st century bonus, the vinyl now includes a digital download card as well.
