Editorial Reviews

Fronted by singer-songwriter/guitarist J Mascis, Dinosaur Jr. formed in Massachusetts in 1984. Their emergence was a musical shot heard round the world as Mascis and company put the heroics of lead guitar back into the forefront of the indie rock realm-amazingly, it was a revolutionary idea at the time. Post-punk and pre-grunge, they were an intense force to be reckoned with, and when the band signed to Sire in '91, Mascis' shreddingly unique alt-rock sound was cranked up for vast new audiences of eardrums. These expanded remasters of Dinosaur Jr's first two major label albums spotlight one of the most distinctive and influential artists of the '90s in prime form.

If there's one thing I hope to achieve through my (generally mediocre) music reviews, it's to bring people's attention to some recordings that they might not otherwise hear. And "Green Mind" is one such unfairly neglected album. Over the past three years or so rock radio has been swarmed by bands trying to mix early-90's alternative rock with pop sensibilities, but unfortunately most of these acts tend to come off as almost appallingly indistinguished (think Nickelback). J. Mascis (who basically was Dinosaur Jr.) was not only doing it about ten years before any of these bands, but doing it a lot better. In a time dominated, whether for better or for worse, by self-conscious angst, Dinosour Jr. instead got by on an abundance of lazy charm.

First of all, is there any doubt that J. has one of the most memorable rock voices ever? His aching, warbling croak simultaneously brings to mind Paul Westerberg, Eddie Vedder, and even a little Kurt Cobain, but J. never sacrifices his individuality. He also accompanies himself brilliantly on the guitar, getting quite a bit of mileage out of just a few chords. Throughout the album, J. expertly mixes head-banging riffs, addictive pop hooks, and the occasional dose of gentle acoustics (see "Flying Cloud" for an example of the latter). Where J. really lets loose, though, is with his searing solos, which will bounce around in your head for days after you hear them. Throw in some truly monstrous drumbeats, and you've got something that goes well beyond your typical indie-rock album.
"Green Mind" bursts right out of the gate with the up-tempo pop-rock of "Wagon," which is easily one of the catchiest songs ever to open an album.

Green Mind was released in 1991 and is considered a transition for Dinosaur Jr. Released by Sire this is the Band's major label debut.
Although it is practically a One-man solo project ran by Dinosaur's leader/vocalist J. Mascis. Drummer Murph only contributes his drum banging on three of the original's ten tracks.
Green Mind, is the Band's fourth release and it is more mellow and less abrasive and heavy than their previous works. This does show the Band maturing and moving forward w/ the most variety so far.
"The Wagon" - starts things off on the right foot and continues the Dinosaur Jr. tradition of beginning each album with a Killer (hit) track!
The album's inner notes sum up this song Best by saying "The Wagon teeters between raging emotions and raging guitars perfectly."
Green Mind also features My All-Time Favorite Song: "How Did You Pin That One On Me" - Rolling Stone magazine says this is: "..the glorious noise every garage band dreams of."
This album also features for the first time acoustic sounds that may have turned off many hard-core Dino-fans and/or music critics, but I just LOVE this transition. I think they took their heavy sounds as far as it could go from their indie debut through my fave - "Bug"
A couple more melodic or acoustic songs are "Flying Cloud" which sounds kind of like a folky Led Zeppelin number maybe off their 1969 2nd record, like "The Lemon Song."
And the other more melodic acoustic song is "Water" - a gorgeous relaxingly catchy track w/ soothing Neil Young inspired vocals.
This Re-mastered Cd contains three bonus tracks: 1)Hot Burrito #2 - a cover from Gram Parsons and features background vocals from actor Matt Dillon! 2) "Turnip Farm" - off the "Reality Bites" movie soundtrack & 3) "Forget It" - My Favorite Bonus track of these three and a perfect closer.

Format: Audio CD
This is Dinosaur's last great CD, and perhaps even their last good CD.
Although the departure of Barlow is clear from the style of the songs, J Mascis clearly had enough material to make for an excellent album all the way through. "The Wagon" is a throwback to old Dinosaur Jr, while stripped down songs like "Thumb", "Water", and "Green Mind" offer a preview of the future. The solos are still vintage Mascis, which is to say mind-blowing.
Some folks will swear off Dinosaur Jr after Barlow's departure, and I think that's understandable. They were a completely different band sans Barlow. However, this CD stands out on its own. It's everything else after this (not counting "Whatever's Cool With Me") that is subpar for Dinosaur Jr. I continued to buy all the CDs, but clearly they weren't the same band and the departure of Lou had hit hard.
Maybe now that Sebadoh has hit the wall, Barlow and Mascis can put aside their animosity and reunite for one final and amazing hoorah.

Green Mind should be heard by everyone on the planet. This is a band who deserve much more success than what they have achieved so far. The Wagon, Puke & Cry and Muck are some of the greatest tunes ever made, and if you have do not wish to listen to this album then you don't deserve to listen to music. This is sublime

How does he do it?
Green Mind, the first all-new Dinosaur Jr album to appear after the infamous spilt with Lou Barlow, was released during the Spring of 1991. The timing should have been fortuitous, poised right at the cusp of the grunge onlaught. But despite J Masics' more poised songwriting, the album, laced with rough production values and rambling song structures that still seemed to bear the stamp of the Barlow collaboration, was still too remote for audiences, so instead of becoming the standard-bearer for the alternative movement, Green Mind was subsumed by the Nirvana/PearlJam tidal wave. Shame, too: this was probably the most manically inspired album of Mascis' career.
The Wagon, which in later years seemed to become an emblem for the band itself (listen to "Quicksand" from Whatever's Cool With Me), is so rollicking and spontaneous that it feels as if Mascis wrote in his head simultaneously with recording it. Blowing It, typical of J's ability to switch phrasing and rhythm without ever breaking the tempo of the song, is the musical equivalent of rubbing your stomach and patting your head at the same time. Flying Cloud, with its open suspensions and remote vocals, probably recalls Neil Young more clearly than any other song Mascis wrote. All in all, this is a must-have for any grungeophile.
