Dinosaur Jr. covers the Cure? Yeah, but where the Cure did the original "Just Like Heaven" as an eighties pop piece more suited to sparkle on John Hughes movie soundtracks, J Mascis and company tear it up and put it back together as a true masterpiece of anger and grunge. The bass growls, the screamed YOUUUUUU of the chorus, and the way the song ends abruptly in a crash of guitars and feedback all contribute to a fine reinterpretation of a surprisingly emotional piece.
Not truly B-sides but clearly there to fill out some space, both "Throw Down" and "Chunks" are less complete ideas than mere snippets of songs, fun, bass-heavy and raw, still clearly from the heyday of Dinosaur Jr. The original LP, a full-sized disk played at '45, is a collectors item - the B-side of the album's vinyl is imprinted with anatomical drawings of organs and a Rice Krisps box - but even the CD's cover art is vintage Dinosaur Jr. Worth owning in either format.

This was the defining moment of the Dinosaur enterprise. Mr. Mascis steps up to the plate and swings his ax, "Just Like Heaven" could never be the same again. I couldn't either; for this is the real life song; just as I have been living it..
