The Eternal" is the sixteenth studio album by Sonic Youth, released by Matador Records on June 9, 2009, their first on that label. It was their first studio album in three years (since "Rather Ripped"), making it the band's longest delay between studio albums.
The Eternal is Sonic Youth's first album for legendary indie label Matador Records after a nearly 20-year stint with Geffen Records, which dovetails nicely with the fact that this is also the band's first album with former Pavement bassist (and Matador alum) Mark Ibold. Sonic Youth even changed their usual songwriting approach, writing and recording tracks in quick batches instead of planning an entire song cycle at once. Dust wasn't allowed to settle on these songs, nor could it - the most striking thing about The Eternal is how hard it rocks.
Sonic Youth – The Eternal. Matador) UK release date: 8 June 2009. Legendary New York indie-rockers Sonic Youth are back with their 15th studio album, The Eternal. To Sonic Youth fans, though, this is more like the fourth in a series of albums that has seen the band become totally revitalised with the turning of the century. What started with the majestic Murray Street and was further honed with the retrospective Sonic Nurse and the forward-looking Rather Ripped has been completed with The Eternal. Even the grandiose title evokes a sense of finality and timelessness.
And if there’s any SY record to catch up on, it’s The Eternal. The Eternal is basically the band’s complete embrace of the hook. Opener Sacred Trickster sets the stage, featuring Kim Gordon’s signature lyrics and vocals placed over some of the most ferocious instrumentation the band’s played in years, aided by new fifth-wheel Mark Ibold.
