Format: MP3 Download
Visualise the name J Mascis and inevitably it is the drawling vocals and ferocious hardcore guitar sound of Dinosaur Jr that leaps into the line of sight. Mascis is a wizard and a true star, a musician who used sonic power to best effect and probably the most influential guitarist of his generation. These days he varies his plays with a solo career which allows him more space to develop a less fuzz laden approach which in the case of "Tied to a Star" is almost completely devoid of squalling guitar heroics. If it is the "harder" side of Mascis that you enjoy most this album may not be a primary attraction. Alternatively if you are prepared to accept that he has always been a great songwriter and can make an acoustic guitar "sing" like its electric counterpart you will relish this excellent second solo album.

The predominant theme of the album is set out in the lovely alternative country opener "Me Again", a gentle ode with contemplative lyrics underpinned by a song bursting with melody. Even better is the brilliant rolling acoustics of "Wide Awake" where Mascis playing is exemplary and assisted by the dulcet tones of Chan Marshall on backing vocals. Other songs like "Heal the Star" echo previous acoustic outings on Dinosaur Jr albums where Mascis confesses that "Everybody's rollin' down town, I could use a little down town, I could use a bit less down" before the songs steers off into an Eastern coda. Elsewhere the most rock orientated song on the album "Every Morning" has a clear pop edge and sounds potentially commercial. The later "Trailing Off" also contains a nice solo and is very well constructed building to a surging conclusion.

Jay still has it. I sat down and listened to the whole album twice. Very mellow but still with typical jay vocals. Probably going to be my favourite album of 2015.
