Biography

There is nothing quite like a Dinosaur Jr. album. The best ones are always recognizable from the first notes. And even though J tries to trip us up by smearing "Don't Pretend You Didn't Know" with keyboards, it's clear from the moment he starts his vocals that this is the one and only Dinosaur Jr., long reigning kings of Amherst, Massachusetts (and anywhere else they ...

Since bassist Lou Barlow left Dinosaur Jr. in 1989, the band--whose last record was 1997's expansive Hand It Over--has largely become an alter-ego moniker for guitarist/vocalist J Mascis. But now the original trio (including drummer Emmett "Murph" Murphy) has reunited for the first time since Barlow's split, and the 11-song outcome makes one ask: Why did they wait so long? Mascis's thunderous "Almost Ready," featuring both his combustible guitar and weary vocals, is the perfect blast-off, allowing Murphy's backbeat to set a turbulent pace early, and while songs like "Been There All the Time" and the Neil Young accolade "This Is All I Came to Do" have Mascis as primed as ever, Barlow (whose '90s-era Sebadoh set the bar for lo-fi bands) reappears with two of the record's strongest tracks: the poppy "Lightning Bulb" and "Back to Your Heart," which recalls late-in-the-game Hüsker Dü. These 50 minutes of music are as cohesive as they are conquering, and whether the same can be said of the once-prickly relationship between Mascis and Barlow will ultimately decide if this is a one-off reunion or if the real Dinosaur Jr. is back for awhile. --Scott Holter

So J and Lou have kissed and made up, but was it worth it?

You bet your ass it was!!

If you liked the original stuff then you won't be disappointed here, everything is in place from J's drawl and mind boggling, teatering on the edge guitar work to Lous unique strummed bass and Murphs powerful tub thumping. Also, caught them live a couple of times since they reformed and they are as gigantic a live experience as ever. Only down side is it may have you thinking "was that REALLY 20 years ago!!!?"

But nostalgia aside this is a great album in its own right. If you've never even heard of Dinosaur Jr but like melodic powerful guitar driven music you should check this out. I reckon it's as good a place to start as any of their original stuff, and that's saying something!!

In the late 80's, early 90's I was a big fan of alternative rock from

the US, sebadoh, pavement, pixies, polvo, arcwelder, superchunk, mudhoney, early nirvana, trumans water, archers of loaf, sonic youth, lemonheads, smashing pumpkins, sugar,screaming trees - they all had that slacker vibe which appealed to my teenage self. Come university in 93 and for me it was Warp records all the way as the records became less fresh sounding. In the past couple of years i have been dusting off my old vinyl and some of it stands up pretty well. In this sense there is nothing on Beyond which i haven't heard before, especially in terms of general song structure eg a chunky riff, a wistful/pained first verse and one line choruses repeated.

However, the quality and production of the songs is good and there are some awesome sounding guitar solos - DJ have basically taken all that was good about that scene and assembled it into an effortless and contemporary feeling package. This album could not have been released at the time, as the whole has been informed by history and put together by musicians who have consistently produced quality music in the years since - happily Beyond is all the better for it.

As a long-time fan of Dinosaur Jr I have to day that this new LP is right up there with their greatest works, like Your Living All Over Me and Bug. The Lou Barlow songs are brilliant, and J Mascis revisits his entire output during the 1990's, as well as his solo ventures. Standouts? Depends on what mood you are in but 'What if I knew' and 'Almost Ready' are instant classics, 'Were Not Alone' is a thing of beauty, and 'Pick Me Up' has that weird progressive rock riffing, culminating in a supercharged slurry of amazing guitar work. I just cant think of any other band being able to command this kind of energy more than twenty years after the first got it togther in Amherst in the halcyon days of SST and all that great Amercian music. In a way, Dinosaur Jr really have evolved, its just that their particular brand of evolution is all about getting better at doing what you've always done, and knowing that its always been different class.

I got a pre-release copy, and was also lucky enough to see Dinosaur Jr. recently in Galway, where they played 2 new songs from Beyond. Starting with 'Almost Ready', J Mascis reminds us that it was Dinosaur Jr who put the G in Grunge, with blistering guitar designed to be played as loud as possible (hit the pain threshold, then keep going), and a simple chord sequence played as only J can, with speed and accuracy. Pick Me Up shows the guys still have that killer instinct when it comes to catchy but heavy riffs, and Been There All The Time simply rocks your socks off. A truly refreshing album showing that there still IS decent music out there.

You would think a group of 40 somethings would be producing 'dad rock' but much like Primal Scream, Dinosaur Jr, now boasting the original lineup from some 20 year ago, have produced a very good album indeed. After 5 or so listens the songs really stick with you. It reminds me of the standout tracks on 'You're Living all over me' and 'Bug'. The sound for those unfamiliar with Dinosaur Jr is a bit Neil Young, a bit Husker Du (pop/rock faze) but mainly original Dinosaur Jr. To sum up, if you're 36-45 and like the original lineup this is a must buy. If you're 16-25 this is a must buy, sees off those young pretenders such as the Kings Of Leon, The Strokes and Cold War Kids etc.. Album of the year so far...just.

Having come to this after their more recent (as of 2011) release, Farm, I was glad I did not purchase this in 2007. It was a relatively big deal that DJ had reformed with the original group, last seen on Bug and I was rather excited but had almost overdosed on all of their previous albums so was not as eager to indulge as I would have been 10 or so years ago. But when Farm came out it was the cover that hooked me. Very old skool DJ. And the music reflected this as well. It was a mixture of the later stuff with a tinge of Sebadoh for good measure. Beyond is good but just the least interesting album they have made.

'Almost Ready' is a good opener and quite upbeat; a great intro to a newer DJ. 'Crumble' however sounds very reminiscent of their post Green Mind country-grunge but has no hook or finesse. 'Pick Me Up' starts better and almost sounds like a throwback to Bug. The first half of the song has great power and melody and should have stopped at 2 or 3 mins in length. The final act is all widdly solos from an increasingly overindulgent Mascis. You can tell 'Back To Your Heart' is written by Barlow as it sounds like a Sebadoh song which is odd on a new DJ album. Ironically however, it is the best song on this album by a long shot in my opinion. It's well crafted and paced and has a great melody. 'This is All I Came to Do' is ok but does go on slightly too long for its own worth. It revolves around a typically catchy Mascis chorus that loops and repeats many times. This has worked on past tracks that use simple melodies to great effect, like 'Seemed Like the Thing to Do', but here it gets a bit boring. The single, 'Been There All the Time' is good and has energy but does not outshine any of the great DJ back catalogue.

'It's Me' I really like.
