The Best Day is not the first music Thurston Moore has released since becoming the most famous-and, in some circles, most reviled-divorcé in American indie-rock. It is, however, the first time he’s released a song-oriented album under his own name since his highly publicized split from long-time wife/bandmate Kim Gordon.
Also singer/guitarist Thurston Moore to escape on The Best Day, his first solo album since the ending of Sonic Youth and fourth in total. The characteristic barbed wire solos and strange chords are present in full glory again. The same is true of drummer Steve Shelley that on a number of tracks sit down and that half of his old band is restored again. The Best Day on the other hand, contains little noise and even supports to a large extent on the acoustic style of Moore's previous solo album Demolished Thoughts (2011).
The swaggering blues wobble of the title track and witchy acoustics that pop up throughout the album are all relatively new territory, but when Moore hits his stride with strange, dreamlike fits of guitar chaos, unconventional changes, and unflinching rhythms, all the elements of his very singular style come into full focus. While the newer additions to Thurston's muse are all well and good, The Best Day is most exciting when he returns to his most familiar trademarks, again investigating a sound that has spawned generations of imitators but still sounds like no one else.

Two extended benedictions open Thurston Moore’s fourth solo album and threaten to outweigh the six songs that follow them. The press sheet from Matador compares the first one to Crazy Horse, and that’s inaccurate only in that they both sound exactly like somewhat more medicated outtakes from Ragged Glory, without the epochal power chords. Speaking as a resolute heathen whose condition is not slated to change anytime soon, the first two cuts from The Best Day strike me as extended appeals one might confuse with prayer, and they take up the first 20 minutes of the record. But for all their studied repetition, compliant and mantra-like evenness, those two songs teem with a generosity that the cynicism of Moore’s generation overlooks in every-day practice.
The Best Day – which finds the frontman backed by guitarist James Sedwards (Nought), Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine) and Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth) – will be out October 21st on Matador Records. In a statement, Moore described the album as being balanced between his signature thrashing electric guitars and blissful 12-string acoustic ballads.
