5.0 out of 5 stars Sit back and slack, 15 Jan. 2001
This review is from: Where You Been (Audio CD)
Dinosaur Jr reside with Husker Du and Throwing Muses as truly seminal to the american alternative rock scene. With bands such as Nirvana citing Dinosaur as influences it isn't hard to see that a great deal of american alternative rock owes a great deal to this band. Where You Been is seen by many to be the quintessential Jr album blending folk, rock and ironic content to produce a brilliant album. The lazy drawl of leading light J Mascis is perfectly set off against guitar work that is both technically impressive and aurally astounding.
It is hard to believe that a band whose whole premise is slacking and making rock to slack to could bring forth classics like Out There and Start Choppin, few bands can ever sound as majestic as Dinosaur Jr at the peak of a guitar solo.
The only unfortunate aspect is that their stuff is so hard to get, Where You Been is a good starting point, but Bug, Green Mind and You're Living All Over Me should not be overlooked, or indeed J Mascis' solo album with The Fog (more light).
To summarise, I'd like to give you a track by track review, but I can't its all good, yes all of it. Buy it, play it, sit back and order pizza.
