This is an Original SST pressing from 1986 in strong condition, complete with the lyric inner. I have a very tough time ranking Sonic Youth albums but this one is definitely top five for me, featuring classic cuts Tom Violence, Shadow Of A Doubt, and Expressway to Yr Skull (titled Madona, Sean and Me on the cover). It sounded great in a quick listen, with just a touch of surface noise behind some of the quieter intros / outros. Allmusic gives the albums 4 1/2 stars and calls it "a remarkably strong effort".
Vinyl: VG+ (only light superficial wear)
Cover: VG+ (very solid, light corner crease bottom left)
Play notes: Plays well and sounds strong, a bit of surface noise in quietest parts
We prefer to overdeliver and therefore grade conservatively. Our scale runs Near Mint (NM), Excellent (EX), Very Good Plus (VG+), Very Good (VG), Good Plus (G+), Good (G).
