With the frequency I listen to SY, my 9 year old daughter has shown an inclination towards their music. So after her request the first album I placed on her ipod was Goo. I have followed up with Nurse, Washing Machine and more recently Murray Street & Rather Ripped.

Gotta love it.....she is now hooked on SY.

I started with Dirty which is an amazing album. Then Sonic Nurse, then DD.

Actually i would have to say "Sonic Youth: Live at Pompeii" would be the ultimate starter point, or perhaps "Pink Floyd: Gila Monster Jamboree". Both are widely available on 16mm film format.

Silver Session for Jason Knuth unequivocally! You must first learn to embrace noise, the rest is secondary

That's the great thing about Sonic Youth. It seems like even their worst albums can work as a means of getting someone into their music.

There's not too many bands you can say that about, in my opinion.
