A series of hazy 8mm vignettes, accompanied by a soft, lilting voice over, in which girls skulk around schoolyards, spray graffiti, drink, smoke, pose and embrace, evoking the loneliness, confusion and overwhelming wonder of growing up.
i found everything about this DVD to be really enjoyable. everything was really done well. i was very impressed with the opening and the little montage that plays at the main menu. it pumps you up and it's just fantastic. i'm a Sonic Youth fan obviously and i've never seen all of the videos. and the DVD served that purpose and satisfied it. to the fullest. featuring videos from Goo to Murray Street, they're all very unique in it's form. not that some videos felt more commercialized than others but they all truly had that Sonic Youth-feel to it. also the videos have various Director Commentary and all of them have commentary from the band themselves. its very enjoyable and informative as they talk about not seeing some of the videos in a long time. i was really surprised that fellow Sonic friends Kathleen Hanna and Jason Lee provided commentary for the they were in. that was a nice treat.
special features include various other music videos i guess that weren't released i suppose.. or just extra videos. including a video for Thurston Moore's song Ono Soul from his solo album Psychic Hearts.
besides that, the DVD was created to serve one purpose.. to please Sonic fans (both hardcore and new ones) and provide them all of the music videos with some extra treats. i was pleased by this.
