After more than 30 years in the music industry, Thurston Moore continues to create captivating, relevant material. His intricate knowledge and approach to sound is evident throughout The Best Day. Moore is saying something with this album.
It’s the most “Sonic Youth-sounding” recording he’s completed since the band went on hiatus in 2011. The first track, “Speak to the Wild,” radiates an inspirational feeling. The title track exemplifies the optimism felt throughout the album, both lyrically and musically.
This whole album is extra good especially considering Moore is almost 60. Hell yeah, he’s AARP rocking. Get this; it’s good and quite possibly great.
