    Re: New Dinosaur Jr. Album

    Looking forward to it also - in that it's the first new one from the original band since the early 90's days.

    The new song - "eh" - sounds a bit like their mid 90's stuff.

    I've seen Jay a few times on his solo gigs - my ears are still ringing.

    Not yet. I'll try the local indie record shop when I get a chance.

    Went and saw them last night.

    It was really, really good.

    It was also really, really loud.

    I might be going deaf now.

    I saw Dinosaur Jr. in college, and their merchandise included a set of earplugs in a purple case with their logo on it. They were $10, and I wish, WISH I would have ponied up and bought one.

    Bah, the new CD is very predictable and doesn't resemble the original band's music from the late 80's at all IMO.

    It's just a bit boring and cliche at this point - sounding very similar to DJ from the mid-late 90's. (which I liked, but have grown tired of long ago)

    I do like a few songs on Beyond - but it's more of the same Mascis - a master guitarist - but his style is just worn out for me.

    I think they can now take the "Jr." out of "Dinosaur"

    Thankfully they only played a few songs off the new album which I agree is really only OK, although it does have a couple of songs I really like.

    With the exception of Without a Sound, I love everything Dinosaur Jr. has done, including the new album.

    Well, consider the cycle complete. Jagjaguwar has announced they have signed Dinosaur Jr. and hope to put out the band's new record this summer. J and the boys are currently hard at work finishing up the disc, and while there is no release date yet, speculation is there will be a guitar solo or two on the album.

    What is this "guitar solo" thing I'm hearing so much about?

    Go here and search for a rerecording of 'Tarpit' and a new song, 'I Don't Wanna Go There'...

    Thanks for the link. "I Don't Wanna Go There" wasn't very good, but "Tarpit" was fantastic.

    Agreed. I think it might have packed more of a punch if it wasn't drawn out for five minutes.
