Dinosaur Jr music album review Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not

Music Album Review: Dinosaur Jr. - "Give A Glimpse Of What Yer Not" (8/10)

Dinosaur Jr. (for the past three decades) have been running with the ball passed on by the Ramones and Hüsker Dü–great anthemic rock & roll, bathed in loud and distorted guitar tones. Their latest is more of the same (meant in the best way possible!) of their strong melodic approach. Guitarist J Mascis writes nine of the 11 songs, but two songs by Lou Barlow (a towering talent in his own right) add perfectly. That said, Mascis continues to impress with his twin voices–his thundering chordal technique overlaid with wistful lyrics and his incredible lead guitar technique. Listen to songs like “Tiny” and “I Walk For Miles” and believe!

Score: 8 out of 10
