UK Albums Chart - #6, 1992

"Four Stars ... its music works on so many more levels that a few spins can make your brain start to hurt ... tough, politically cool songs, blanketed with swaths of oddly tuned guitar, overtones and squeals and dissonances ringing into the ether."
- Los Angeles Times

"Four Stars ... it's the first time the band has used an outside producer and it works, giving this album added richness, clarity, punch and amp-static snarl ... it's more focused and harder hitting than Goo ... (easily ranking) among the band's most unified and unforgettable recorded works ... there's a palpably genuine group chemistry at work: warped, gonzo, righteous and loud."
- Rolling Stone

"... we should all fall down on our hands and knees and kiss the jewel box of Sonic Youth’s Dirty, possibly the finest hour from this New York noise & roll band ... a rock guitar band can still result in vital, undeniably moving music ... (Dirty) is not only musically sharper (thanks to producer Butch Vig), but also more emotionally expressive. Dirty is somber and introspective, but it’s much more than that ... every other rock & roll album that visits our planet this year will have a hard time topping it. A."
- Entertainment Weekly

Sonic Youth's foray into grunge, 1992's Dirty was produced by Butch Vig, hot off his work with Nirvana on Nevermind and the Smashing Pumpkins on Gish. Frequently mentioned by fans as one of their favourite Sonic Youth releases, Dirty peaked at number six in the UK, was named the best album of the year by Entertainment Weekly and the song 100% became a top five hit at modern rock radio in the US and a top 30 mainstream British single.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
