5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant surprise, 7 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Martin & Me (Audio CD)
This album surprised me as I'm sure it did other Dinosaur Jr fans who may have been wary of the acoustic sound. The combination of Mascis' raw, emotional voice and faultless strumming creates a wonderful sound which it is obvious the crowd appreciate. One of the highlights of the album for me is Mascis' outstanding cover of The Smiths 'Boy with the thorn in his side' which sounds at least as good as the original. Superb!

4.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic album from the Dinosaur Jr frontman, 20 Mar. 2001
By 
This review is from: Martin & Me (Audio CD)
J mascis has never gained the sort of recognition that he deserves because he doesnt have the commercial sounding vocals that other big names of the same style, like Kurt cobain and Eddie Vedder, have. I had never heard his acoustic songs before, and wasnt sure what the would be like, because all his dinosaur Jr albums, like More Light, have been electric, and heavilly based around his outstanding solos. This album did not dissapoint me. His rough and sometimes messy vocals complement his sound amazingly, and his song writting is still on top form. Fans of Dinosaur Jr will love this album, as will fans of Blind Melon, Pearl jam and John Frusciante. This is an amazing album from one of the most under-rated artists around.
