About this deal

Robert Christgau was less positive, finding that "somehow his axe and his voice sing the same tune, momentarily transmuting his self-pity into simple sadness". Over the years I have collected some of those exclusive CD releases, but now I have many of those songs all in one here, and on vinyl, wow. He wrote that the song "I Ain't Sayin", with "its canyon-filling bookending riff to its appealing shuffle and its heartwarming “rolling home to you” chorus [.

I don't know if they make a conscious effort to change, but I suppose they'd be really bored by now if they always sounded the same. For those of you who know what I'm referring to, the amazing 10 min live version of "What else is new," from the Japanese "Feel the Pain" live EP is included. Collected together here with related B-sides, BBC session recordings and a previously unreleased live recording made at St Paul Civic Centre in June 1993, and accompanied by in-depth sleevenotes from Mojo’s Keith Cameron (based on recent and exclusive interviews with J Mascis), this edition provides a glimpse of a band in rampant form riding a hard-earned wave of popularity and credibility. Some of the bonus tracks included here were exclusive to certain countries such as Japan and Australia back in the 90s, but available now for the first time on these reissues.

They've stopped sounding the way they did on Bug, but they've built on the same basic premise and kept those very recognisable guitar sounds. s greatest commercial success up to that point, reaching number 50 in the US and number 10 in the UK. s textbook construction of over-driven ear-worms would go on to strike chords with many later alt-90s guitar heroes.

to follow them into the big-time; after all, their 1988 single Freak Scene coined the quiet/loud dynamic Smells Like Teen Spirit would later ride to phenomenal success. i will say too that in the run in wax on side A there is a noticeable hum that should not be there, this does not occur on the B, C and D sides however, maybe this is just my pressing?

The song "Start Choppin'" was their biggest hit, reaching number 3 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart in the U.

Mascis reacted at the time, "We're just making records and, I mean, every one sold more than the last one. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Hüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould spoke positively of the album, commenting, "I've heard Where You Been, their new album. erano pure alternativi al grunge , suoni stupendi, linee melodiche mozzafiato, con la voce stralunata di J Mascis ciliegina su una torta pazzesca! Released to unanimously positive reviews, and containing many tracks that would become staples and fan favourites, ‘Where You Been’ continued Dinosaur Jr’s global ascent, being issued simultaneously across the US, Europe, Australasia, Asia and South America.There were still moments of punked-up fury to set the moshpit alight: On the Way a slamdance immolated by howling, roaring guitar, Hide a desperate dash illuminated by passages of Sonic Youth-esque skronk. It just makes the record better having all the people there contributing something, rather than the last one. On previous albums, the singer's relationship with the world outside seemed about as emotionally developed as a 13-year-old's. Released as grunge was at its height, 1993’s Where You Been hazily evaded any Nirvana-esque commercial crossover (it peaked at number 50 in the Billboard charts), but was a ragged masterpiece that found a fine new voice for the band. have announced plans to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Where You Been, their influential 1993 grunge album and fifth full-length overall.

Similarly the verbal spaghetti spilling over 'Hide' pre-dates Jeff Magnum's [sic] similar drawl on ‘ In the Aeroplane Over The Sea’ by a fair few years. I cleaned all my albums, but there is definitely crackle when the needle drops and between songs, as well as on the quieter acoustic tunes. But given the outstanding quality of the packaging and song selection for the bonus tracks, I don't mind so much in this case. Outstanding job by Cherry Red Records in my opinion for these wonderful albums that most Dinosaur Jr fans think are under appreciated. That pressing is very crisp - great articulation between vocals, guitars and drums - where as this pressing seems a bit muffled.Like many of its peers," he concludes, "Dinosaur Jr is a musical cargo cult, turning the detritus of another culture into something that can be used — and maybe even worshiped. Mascis explained on an interview with 120 Minutes, "It's the first time we've felt like a band for maybe six years, or something. Formed in 1984, Dinosaur Jr carved a singular path through the latter half of the 1980s and early 1990s, issuing a number of highly influential albums in the process before finding a home with Sire Records. Goin' Home's gentle world-weariness sounds for all the world like it could be an Eels rip-off if it weren’t for the fact that E was still just a bespectacled teenager who was into birds at this point. Where You Been”, their fifth record, emerged in 1993, at the height of enthusiasm for grunge and the alternative American rock scene the band had long been part of.
