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 ...

4.0 out of 5 stars not their best, but better than the rest. 17 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
People dont give this album enough credit. It was the link between the earlier, sonically diverse albums and the later more commercial albums (eg Where You Been). The songs are well put together, standout tracks being Water (one of the best Dino songs ever) and Thumb (excellent use of the flute sound). Just because this album was lighter and had acoustic tracks on it (flying cloud) doesnt make it any less superior to the other albums, but makes it a good introduction to the band and their style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best album ever ???? 28 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
This choice might be a little contoversial amongst the D.J. loving fraternity, however it needs to be aknowledged as an absolute masterpiece of an album. I am actually listening to their latest release (Farm) at the moment and casting a disparaging eye across the bounty of 5 stars reviews I can't help thinking that it needs to be more choppy and direct a la Green Mind - and the cover of the young girl smerking a tab is better than the Ents imho ! I will re-visit and re-listen to my D.J. collection but I suspect that Geen Mind will retain its position as top of my personal hit list. Fast, energetic and straight to the point - that's what I like.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic slice of early 90's rock 22 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album has received quite a lot of hostility from both the press and Dinosaur Jr fans in the past, but I think it is actually a very good album - a collection of solid songs with excellent riffs and melodies. The opener, 'The Wagon', is a classic, being both tuneful and tuneless at the same time, and the whole record has a sense of hope about it. This album doesn't really offer the variety of their earlier efforts such as 'Bug', or the more easily acceptable almost-commercial sound that followed it with albums such as 'Where You Been', but it is sort of unique, fusing elements of both the Barlow and post-Barlow years. For these reasons, it is a recommended addition to any rock fan's collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Promising but not there yet 10 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Green Mind is the major label precursor to what many people believe is the quintessential slacker rock album, their 1993 cd Where You Been.
In a time when Nirvana were getting angry and Pearl Jam were getting whiny, Dinosaur Jr never refrained from dropping out.
Green Mind is a pleasing blend of laid back alternative rock with folk crossover. The stand out tracks are the electric 'How did you pin that one on me' and the maudlin 'Puke and Cry'. With this CD, the ever eclectic J Mascis shows that he has the potential to rock you to your very roots and still soothe you to sleep afterwards.
The CD is let down by the fact that the rock never quite rocks hard enough, however, as an introduction to a fine band that provided inspiration for much of the current US left field rock scene, this album is A OK. Although the CD will never reach the classic status of the now sadly deleted 'Where You Been' at mid price it is a must, this will never disappoint as it is slacker rock and never raises expectations.
Listen, like it and wear baggy T shirts a lot.
