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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Less a swansong more a screaming roar. 30 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This is the bands last album and arguably their finest. If you are a fan of Dinosaur jr, or even just a fan of seriously out there sonic sounds, you must hear this record. Be it
'I'm insane' where pounding guitars meet french horn in an profoundly catchy way, 'Alone' Which sounds like Neil Young singing a gentle song whilst crashing a supersoic jet or the subtle elegance of 'Never baught it' this record will suprise you, all in all this is a masterpiece of altenative rock.
After hearing hearing 'Hand it over' you may never be the same again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Here you go... 14 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The last album before their reunion in the 21st century, Hand It Over felt like a much safer version of Dinosaur Jr. It still stands as one of their best, not a classic as such, but the songs are more rock played with a grunge sound. Gone is the edginess of Bug and also the darkness of Wher You Been and Without a Sound. It felt like a nice, breezy, summery album. With a Dino Jr twist of course.

The best tracks are the first 2 (I Don't Think and Never Bought It), I'm Insane, Mick and Loaded. The others are all good but just not as special. Alone for example is great but at 8 minutes it's too long and slightly dirgey. However I would highly reccommend you try as all of the band's albums are good - they haven't produced anything bad as of yet (2011). It's also the most similar album to their most recent at time of writing, Farm.

5.0 out of 5 stars How does he do it? 19 Dec 2000
By Sean S McVity - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Hand It Over is a brilliant, complex, diverse and fitting end to the Dinosaur Jr era. While I thought all the bad press from fans and critics for Without a Sound was hugely unfair, it's true that this album really shows a much more involved and dedicated J Mascis. With almost every track, Mascis has worked the song structure, vocals and instrumentation to their most intruiging possibilities.
What defines this album is the variety and the particulars. The opener, "I Don't Think," leads off with a thunderous, bass-driven boom enveloping a falsetto vocal, then lapses into a wistful folky chorus. "Nothing's Going On" is a straight-ahead, slow-tempo rocker with heavy guitar overdrive and a straight snare-drum beat. "I'm Insane," one of the album's strongest cuts, features a loopy trumpet doing an off-key dance as the song switches between a dark stall and a manic chorus. "Can't We Move This" is the most probably the most satisfying track for fans of the middle albums, with a lot of slashing guitar work and the Marshalls set on Kill, again set against the fascinating counterpoint of an almost inaudible falsetto vocal. "Alone" is a three-chord feedback masterpiece which is the closest clone of Neil Young ever recorded by Mascis (and that's not a slight; it's brilliant in its own right). My personal favorite is "Loaded," with its agonized, gut-twisting vocal and chainsaw guitar line. The slower cuts, notably "Never Bought It" and "Sure Not Over You," are more classic Mascis, reminiscent of "Where You Been." "Getting Rough" is played on a banjo and might be taken as J's reflection on - and farewell to - Dinosaur Jr. This record really shows what music can be in the hands of determined genius; thank you J, and farewell Dino.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is "Loaded" with good songs. 20 Sep 2004
By H3@+h - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There's some "DJ" fans who will only listen to their early albums, but I actually really enjoy everything they've done, and this is no exception. "Hand It Over" is probably most similar to "Without A Sound", which would make sense. In fact, "Nothin's Goin' On" is kind of the "Feel The Pain" of this album, to my ears anyway. "Never Bought It" is a great track, as is "Mick", and "Alone" has the old "Neil Young" epic feel to it. The only track that's a bit jarring is "I'm Insane", mostly because it has horns on it, which some may like. I'd say if you're a fan of 90's "Dinosaur Jr.", you'll want to dig this up. They do have a collection out also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't expecting this. 6 July 1999
By Doomsday - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My favorite Dinosaur Jr. Albums are the ones with "Lou Barlow" in them. Specifically "Dinosaur" and "You're Living all Over Me". I kinda lost interest in the 90s. But i must say, this was a shocker. I never thought this album would be this good. His work with Belinda Butcher and Kevin Shields from My "Bloody Valentine" on this record certainly adds soemthing to it. All of you who are nervous about getting this because of their last few albums, try it. I'm sure you'll like it. Also check it out if you're an MBV fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Last stand for Dinosaur Jr. 28 Jun 2004
By Paul Kath - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This may be the most underated Dinosaur Jr album that J Mascis and co. would release. People had so-so thoughts about how this would turn out and it turned out to be another more exprimental album.
Even though the sound is almost completely oppisite to the Bug/Where you been sounds it can still be something. The guitaring is there and so is the lyrics/vocals but the only thing different is the sound. It's nothing to complain about and it's nice to hear what J would try before he disbanded the group and went solo. This is alot like what J Mascis does with the Fog but with a more authentic Mascis trademark. Meaning it's what Dinosaur Jr would probably sound like today.
There are a few filler songs on the album. Mick and I Don't think are examples. I don't Think isn't s very strong opening track to get someone into the album and Mick just kinda goes on and on. The last track Gotta Know and I'm Insane are my favorite tunes on the album. Gotta Know has a great sound to it and the it just ends the album very, very well. I'm Insane sounds more pop-rockish with the trumpet and harmless sound. While other songs like Can't We Movie this and I know Yer Insane is just POWER. Same with Loaded to a lesser extent.
Either way, it's a great way to end what was a great group.

5.0 out of 5 stars J Mascis refreshes his conviction in "Hand it Over" 23 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Dinosaur Jr has definitely gone out with a bang. With the exception of "Where You Been," this album is the band's most emotionally and instrumentally diverse effort. Regardless, almost every song on the album is played very loud. The feelings J is able to get out of the guitar are not only heartfelt, but powerful, muscular, and absolutely huge. Perhaps the two best tracks on the album, for their emotional content, are "I'm Insane," and "Alone." In the former, a trumpet melody uncannily and hyperactively hits notes that almost seemlessly fit into the songs main tempo. The beautiful, tight trumpet melody is eventually smashed up against J's completely out of tune, loud guitar chords which add meaning to the theme of emotional instability and frustration. "Alone" portrays a similar emotional presence by drowning J's falsetto voice with his trademark power chords and a continuous lead solo. As a whole, most of the songs deal with alienation, solitude, and a relationship that never occured due to J's inability to relate to women. This specificity of content may turn off some, but for those who can relate to J's problems the album is pure magic.
