DOUBLE NEGATIVE: Daydreamnation: LP

Jan 06, 2011

A little put off by the Sonic Youth-copped album title and the Double Platinum-reminiscent cover? Remember this: WHOP. That’s the sound you will hear the instant before what’s coming out of the speakers smacks you square in the face and makes its way ‘round to doing permanent damage to your ear canals. One battering tune after the next, strip mining and milking every ounce they possibly can squeeze from all that was glorious about Poison Idea’s early years, including the sheer timelessness aspect of it all. Truly good tuneage doesn’t stagnate with age and there is no shortage of flat-out jaw dropping moments here. Still on the fence about this one? Trust me: WHOP.
