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 ...

Product Description

BBC Review

Received wisdom has it that, beyond the initial tour or one-off gig, reunions offer little more than a chance to briefly re-live former glories, give fans who missed their favourite bands the first time around a chance to see what all the fuss was about and for the group in question to pay some outstanding tax bills. And yet, as demonstrated by Farm - the second, yes second release since their improbable reunion - Dinosaur Jr do much to spit in the face of received wisdom whilst raising the bar for any alt rock act contemplating hitting the comeback trail.

Proving that the excellence of 2007's Beyond was no fluke, Dinosaur Jr are actually improving with age. With the internecine squabbling that ripped them asunder two decades ago firmly in check, the trio of singer-guitarist J Mascis, bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph have used their previous album as a springboard and, if anything, Farm builds on their fearsome reputation rather than diminishing it.

As the opening bars of Pieces tear through the speakers, there's a comfort to be had hearing Mascis' wailing guitar running through a terrace of Marshall stacks, his somnambulistic whine offset by Barlow's powerful 4-string chords and Murph's relentless pounding. Over It deploys Mascis' tried-and-tested wah-wah but as evidenced on the muscular grind of I Don't Wanna Go There, this is far from a cynical retread; the guitars fizz with an urgency that's both infectious and palpable and the extended coda takes to the skies and soars.

Of most interest are the album's two most considered moments. Said The People and Plans - both ballads though after a fashion - offer a tenderness not usually associated with these noiseniks and Mascis' plaintive cry of ''Save me!'' on the former tugs relentlessly on the heartstrings.

A rarity amongst those who choose to reunite, Dinosaur Jr not only set the standard in terms of musical quality, but they actually make you look forward to what's going to come next. Bring it on! --Julian Marszalek

Let's keep it simple: Farm is tight, energetic, quite loud and just full of superb tunes. To believe that those guys are well in their 40's just puzzles me, as this sounds as fresh as Bug and as precise as Beyond. It sounds like the guys have finally found some peace in their own lives and here they're just having a blast, taking us along on a beautiful rocking ride. The melodies are right down superb on the entire album and both J's and Lou's songs are as strong as ever.

I have been a Dinosaur fan for a good 15 years and owning all their previous album I can safely say this is probably their best. It's THAT good.

As Murph said in a recent interview, this album is supposed to be listened to at high volume, so yeah it might sound a little fuzzy for some but the louder you play it the better it sounds. And what a joy of an album it is.

Come on, treat yourself and grab a copy!

A solid 5 stars.

Jinosaur Dunior are back on top form with this record, I kid you not. An absolute blast of an album, think back in the day when they released "Your Living all Over Me" and "Bug" and your close to how good this album is. I seem to imagine with Lou Barlow back on the scene the guys just sat back and the pieces of this album just fell into place. I cannot recommend this album enough to anyone, even if your not the biggest Dinosaur Jr fan you still got to hear to this album, it's that good.

I'll be short and sweet with this one. Quite simply it's the best thing they've put out since Where You Been, and this new album of theirs is one of the reasons why I like guitar-based music.

The 4 minute extended solo/jam that rounds off I Don't Wanna Go There is worth the purchase price alone - sounding like something Frank Zappa could have put together in his heyday.
Once you get to the 2nd track, "I Want You To Know", you know you won't be disappointed by the rest of it.

I'm simply amazed they can still put together such raw, yet tuneful songs after all these years, when many other bands mellow out.

is this dinosaur jrs finest album ? if not its a close thing-after releasing their first album in the mid eighties and then all falling out with j mascis in the early nineties and after reforming the original line-up for beyond (a great album also)they made this album which has captured a lot of their old sound -nice and raw and pretty noisy in places -class album , buy it.

J.Mascis deserves far more attention from the guitar worshipers of the heavy music pantheon! Always tasteful, adventurous, soulful and exciting in equal measure with great song-writing makes for a most satisfying listen every time, just like the 'Beyond' album.

Nowhere near as good as anything before Hand It Over but there hasn't really been a bad Dinosaur Jr album and this does not redress the balance. Mascis can write a good tune. It's that simple. Traces of Sebadoh of course do leak in occasionally with 'Your Weather' and 'Imagination Blind' but that's ok as they are both excellent tracks. But even when J settles into his groove in his inimitable way on 'Plans', 'Said the People' and 'See You' nothing can go wrong. This is a set of completely tuneful, well-crafted, excellently performed rock tunes, covered in the Dinosuar Jr fuzz.

Lo-lights include basically just 2: 'Friends' and 'I Don't Wanna Go There' for me. The former is not bad just not as interesting as the rest. And the latter is good for about 3 minutes until it becomes a J jam track and we get a song that goes on for nearly 9 minutes with very little song in it.

But the ups eclipse the downs. Highlights for me are the awesome 'Pieces ' (best track on the album), 'I Want You To Know' (one of those tracks when you just KNOW it's Dinosaur Jr), 'Plans', 'You're Weather', 'Over It' (sounds like it should be on Green Mind) and 'There's No Here'. The rest however are all good.

Let's hope they go on for ever.

Obviously the aforementioned web sheriff of the pitchfork preview had to give and eventually and a few unrestrained fans on the brink of explosion were going to reap the benefits of it; I was one of them. On first spin it was clear this would have been more than worth the wait and naturally the guilt took over and now its pre-ordered with the wait for holding the package no way near as intense but the excitement just as real.

This is because from the word go the album is amazing, feeling initially a lot more accessible than Beyond, though this may be because the latter feels like a really good stepping stone to this one. There aren't really any filler tracks at all, with every contribution feeling as solid as the next. To some extent though it is difficult to find a stand out track, with 'I don't wanna go there' or 'over it' probably claiming the spot overall. The best moments are the solos in 'Ocean in the way' and 'Said the People'... Oh you just wait!

'Plans' feels like a continuation of songs in the same vein as 'Crumble' with the same eerily watery melodic feel with the divine simplicity of the repeated "I got nothing left to be, do you have some plans for me?" summing up the beautiful melancholy of the opening riff. 'Friends' would feel at home on 'More Light' and that proves Lou Barlow's bass would have made that album even better. I should say, you can hear the bass as well! It felt a bit overpowered by the guitar last time round whereas Farm feels a lot more balanced. Lou's tracks are a very welcome turn from J's style but suprisingly don't add as much to the album as they did on the previous one. This being said, 'Your weather' has a really solid chorus that carries the song to another level only to be anchored by another perfect J mascis solo.
