Editorial Reviews

Some twenty years after their formation and legendary dissolution, Dinosaur Jr. returned to form with 2007's "Beyond", continuing their march into rock greatness. "Farm" is proof that this band continues to deliver. At times wholly 70s guitar-epic, at times perfect for sitting by a babbling brook with Joni and Neil, "Farm" encompasses Dinosaur Jr.'s signature palette - soaring and distorted guitar, unshakable hooks, honey-rich melodies - songs that get into your head and, bouncing around happily, stay there. Their fifth full-length with the original lineup. Double LP comes in beautiful litho-wrapped gatefold jackets and contains digital download coupon for free MP3s of the album.

This is the rock album of the year.

1. Buy it
2. Listen to it
3. Repeat step 2

I was floored when "Beyond" came out. I was always a huge fan of the band, and was absolutely overjoyed to hear they got back together. When I listened to that album for the first time, I felt like it was 1989 all over again, but in a good and relavent way. That great feeling I got with "Beyond", is present ten-fold with "Farm".

"Plans", "Said The People", and "I Don't Wanna Go There" are instant American classics. They're catchy and substantive. Not always an easy combo to find. Hearing Barlow sing "Imagination Blind" and "Your Weather" is a wonderful thing. More bands should mix up the singing duties. It just completely diversifies a band's sound.

Oh, and even if you don't like amazing music, you should buy the album just for the art. I haven't smoked weed in years, but it ALMOST makes me want to puff again:P I might even buy the vinyl just for the creepy but cool art.

Buy it now.

The first decade of the new millennia, often characterized by an extreme sense of nostalgia, saw the resurrection of many 80s and 90s era rock bands. While each band who came back from the bargain bin engendered reactions ranging from "I should have known" (The Smashing Pumpkins) to "I never would have thought" (The Pixies), there were a couple of groups who truly did the unthinkable and released new indie rock albums that were just as good as their old alternative rock albums. One such band, Dinosaur Jr., shocked everyone when they came together to record a new album not only because of their vitriolic breakup, but because the album in question, Beyond, wound up as one of the best albums of the year. In a turn of events that should have surprised no one, but probably shocked many, Dinosaur Jr.'s follow up, Farm, is even better than their last album.

Farm's cover art, consisting of two Ents carrying naked children in the palms of their hands, provides a psychedelic connection from J. Mascis to the guitar rock gods of yore (c. 1970s). Some of the longer set pieces twist and turn until they invert themselves to reveal expansive guitar solos. The penultimate song, the almost nine-minute "I Don't Want to Go There," begins with a tempo that chugs along like an old car, but as it makes its way across different landscapes, the soaring song finally ends with a monster solo that bites off the entire second half of the running time. Mascis's proficiency with guitar solos so sharp they could skin cats is a singular gift to be sure, but his talents can be traced back to his acknowledged inspiration, Neil Young.

(This review is on the vinyl sound quality -- the music itself gets a solid five stars from me as well, regardless of the medium).

I've had the CD for some time, and although I've enjoyed it, it was definitely too LOUD (if you know anything about the loudness wars, you know what I mean). Granted, this is a Dinosuar Jr. album so you expect distortion, but a brickwalled CD is just noise and not much else.

The vinyl doesn't seem to be as badly affected, I'm happy to report (purchased it at their last East Coast tour). Distorted as expected, but not as ear fatiguing as the CD imo. A dynamic range check between the two seems to confirm that -- the CD comes in at a "6" (which is bad) but the vinyl comes in at "11" (which is much better).

So, if you have a decent turntable I would recommend the vinyl over the CD.

Great album, but somebody should mention that this CD was mastered TOO FREAKING LOUD. The mix is fuzzy-on-purpose (OK!) but the volume adds constant distortion. Beyond had the same problem - blurry sound, a gauzy roar between me and the music. But hey, ruinous uber-mastering is the industry standard. Who even notices anymore? I remember a time when CDs weren't designed to blow your head off and consumers could be trusted with a volume knob.

Wow! When the original Dino Jr. trio got back together, no one expected 2007's 'Beyond' to be as great as it was. That record pales in comparison to this one though, 'Farm' is simply brilliant from beginning to end. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this album, every track is brilliant, the playing is great, J's solos are incredible, Lou's two tracks are among his best. If you are a Dino fan, this is essential!

This cd is nothing short of spacticular ****

And no I would not consider myself a big Dinosaur Jr fan either

I have gone into depth with a couple of theiir albums Green Mind and Where You Been. But have never heard as much polished songs as on "Farm"

On this album FARM its thou they have "cultivated" all of their previous works with and without BARLOW lineups, into one great album........

Stand out Tracks are

*Said The People*
*See You*
*Plans*

but all could easily stand out which is the bueaty of this albm........
No songs sound the same
Not to mention the Guitar work
One thing about Dino Jr if you like guitar your prlly gunna listen to them, very melodic and catchy riffs that get stuck in your head,
almost painting a vivid picture in your mind, almost taking you on a trip for say ;-)

Highly recommended to those who like an orginal sounding band
Perhaps and overlooked band
Great guitar work, and no i dont mean play as fast as you can
A flat out great album that may be in your player for awhile
