i think by murray street, sonic youth had lost their unique sound of the previous records...but evolved further into a different style of music. Its like that with every sonic decade. the 80s were very dreary and atonal...the ninetys were more sparkley beautiful...and now, its more arty than ever.
Thats just my opinion.
