Daydream Nation, Again

As I’ve previously stated, if I dislike an album, I usually wait six months and give it another chance. Well, six months after I last listened to Daydream Nation, I tried again today. As with Return to Cookie Mountain, time made everything better. This album is clearly made of awesome. “Teen Age Riot” is riff-tastic, “Silver Rocket” rocks hard, “The Sprawl” has dueling guitar goodness, “‘Cross the Breeze” is indeed the right f’ing jam, etc., etc.
P.S. As part of my holiday reconsideration of critically-beloved artists (poor babies), I also gave Low another spin. Side two’s still too ambient for me, but I don’t know how I could have ever hated side one. I mean, “Breaking Glass” is so cracked out and delicious.
