"... percolates the same melancholy satisfaction and nervous maturity, entropy and growth, in and out, but with an urgency and impulsiveness that risks upsetting the balance."
- The Village Voice

"Even the staunchest pundits should find something to like on Sonic Nurse, while steadfast devotees are well accounted for by the record's sheer canonical breadth ... certainly on a plane with some of Sonic Youth's better work."
- Pitchfork

"... all the customary elements are in place: the luxuriously entangled guitars, the beat-derived poetry, the feedback attacks, Kim Gordon’s spooky whisper. But what’s also here, on a CD that advances the fluid lyricism of 2002’s Murray Street, is tauter songwriting, a relaxed professionalism and, in a true sign of maturity, a surprisingly sympathetic ode to Mariah Carey’s career meltdown. No big revelations, but plenty of rewards. A-."
- Entertainment Weekly

Sonic Youth's 2004 release Sonic Nurse followed Murray Street and together the two are considered by many fans as among the band's best work. These songs mark a return to form for the group, reminiscent of the Sonic Youth of the late 1980s, but honed by several years of experience.

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!
