EDITORS’ NOTES

The wizards of gonzo guitar licks return with an eleventh album. And while there’s the usual undertow of fuzzed-up riffs (drink in the nimble-fingered splendour of “Tiny”) there are deft, delicate surprises too. J. Mascis cedes lead vocal duty to Lou Barlow on pleasingly mellow ‘70s noodler “Love Is…” and “Knocked Around” is that rare rock beast—a reflective slice of dim-the-lights crooning that still has the power to melt your face off.

Consistently Great...As Usual!

Dinosaur Jr. has to be one of the most consistent bands in history. Each release seems to be just as good if not better than the last. Chalk that up to great guitar licks, all around great songwriting and a trio of musicians that seem to really gel musically. "Tiny" falls right in line with some of my favorite Dino Jr. tunes, and I have no doubt the rest of the album will be awesome too. Each year I hope for either a new Dinosaur Jr. Album or a J Mascis solo album. Keep this good music coming guys!!!
