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.
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.Read more ›
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.
Most depressing song ever? "Said the People".
Mascis fans may never recover.
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*
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

They never fail!! Dinosaur is like a fine wine, the older the better!! They really burn the air with every song! If you love Indie-rock you have got to love Dinosaur Jr. !!!Published on January 8, 2013 by chris leary
A word of advice to fans of Dinosaur Jr. from their J-Lou-Murph peak years and/or the best albums post-Bug (Green Mind, WCWM ep, Hand It Over), or even the semi-respectable Beyond,... Read morePublished on February 23, 2011 by lopez
For about five years, people have been telling me to check out Dinosaur Jr. Well I finally did and... I seriously wish I hadn't. Perhaps these guys were better in the 80's. Read morePublished on December 3, 2010 by Bryan
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. Read morePublished on July 13, 2010 by P. Couture
It is rare that a regrouping such as this should create a stir, but this one definitely did. This album is astounding. Read morePublished on March 31, 2010 by Christopher L. Zamor
