    I don't feel that bad over the end of Sonic Youth anymore. Sour still, but Body/Head is my way to recovery.

    @sunheadbowed, it's indescribable almost, isn't it? I just saw Swans this last weekend which was on par with the Body/Head show in terms of intensity for me, but I still recall that show (it was around exactly this time exactly last year, when they released Coming Apart), and I think had a greater affect on me than even Swans did live. I was front row at Swans too, five feet from M. Gira, who was amazing of course, but Kim was just bewitching to me in a way that was totally unexpected; I've never felt the way I did during/after that concert before or since. I left that Body/Head show with an internal, psychological, emotional electricity that I didn't even know existed.

    Yeah I know what you mean, scottdoesntknow. I saw Body/Head at Primavera Sound last week in a venue with incredible sound and I was sitting right in front of Kim in the front row. It was so powerful I was really moved by it..

    The best post-hiatus Sonic Youth related project, as it is consistently wonderful all the way through.

    This is super great, it reminds of their early psychedelic days. I miss Thurston but, I am always happy with Kim.

    I still am not totally over their live show I saw in September. It has trumped just about any concert experience I've ever had, including seeing Hole in the flesh, which is saying something considering they are hands down my favorite band of all time... but... there was something beyond words about Body/Head. Maybe being like one foot away from Kim Gordon was what really enhanced the experience?

    It's hilarious how people don't understand the record. Go listen to some fucking Dead C and Keiji Haino then come back to us.
