The concept is this: the band get an all-star cast of Sonic Youth fans to pick their favourite tracks, which includes everyone from actress Portia de Rossi (the delightfully dour Disappearer from Goo) to Beastie Boy Mike D (100 per cent from Dirty) and Radiohead (touting Kool Thing). The latter is equal best pick along with indie film director Allison Anders selection of Stones (from Sonic Nurse) and Daydream Nation's Teenage Riot from Eddie Vedder. Sonic stuff indeed.

Stars: 4/5
