Sonic Youth's first self-titled album
This is just an amazing post-punk release, circa 1982. Obviously they were influenced by reggae on a few tracks, but there are other songs that aren't reggae influenced at all and are very, very haunting, bass-driven beasts. Exemplary of the golden age of production values, in my honest opinion. And the live stuff added to the CD is priceless. This would have to compete with "Dirty" for my fave Sonic Youth release.
