I have read some pretty scathing reviews regarding the books in the 33 1/3 series. If those books are indeed rough reads that miss the point, than this one is smooth and on target, maybe even a high-water mark. I can only hope that Atfield works on more books for this series. I would even suggest he does another Dino album, maybe Green Mind or Hand It Over, as his notes and writing would be a great addition to any future box-set or reissue involving them. Atfield could even accomplish a compelling and thorough biography of the band if he ever sought to.
I've read dozens of online Dinosaur Jr bios (Wikipedia, allmusic, etc.) and I've read Michael Azerrad's terrific "Our Band Could Be Your Life" so I wasn't sure how much new info I'd stand to glean from this book. The answer: a lot. Attfield repeatedly cites Azerrad's book and uses it as an opportunity to build on it and/or offer additional insight from a different point of view. Essentially he uses it to his - and the reader's - advantage.
Finally, I know a lot of people complain in these reviews about 33 1/3 writers inserting their own autobiographical bits into their books. Just for the record, Attfield does not do this whatsoever. His fantastic entry into this book series is 100% Dino. He paints a great picture of who J, Lou & Murph are and how they got started. Plenty of great info, facts, trivia nuggets, etc.: exactly what practically everyone wants from a 33 1/3 book.
