The music is enough to make even the most dedicated lyricists overlook the scratchy, oft-out of key vocals and generally incomprehensible words. I would argue that the lyrics and vocals are part and parsal to the overall DJ experience, though.
I have purchased this album twice, and am getting ready to buy another copy of it.Read more ›
I've heard the argument over and over about how this is the worst Dinosaur Jr. album and that the earlier stuff prior is way better, but honestly I believe that the reason for this is simply because prior to Where You Been, Dinosaur Jr. were regarded as punk, and that with this release they got grouped into the whole grunge scene. This I feel is unfair, I highly doubt that Dinosaur Jr. intended that, they simply made a great album that happened to get sucked into the vortex that was grunge at the time.
From start to finish this album is amazing, I'm really glad that I finally got it on vinyl — I had the feeling it might be out of print, but luckily that was not the case. So many hit potential song are on this record that my only disappointment is that it wasn't as big a hit as it could have been, and more disappointingly, is the fact that Dinosaur Jr. never quite surpassed it — but that is one of the downsides of truly amazing records — they are hard to top.
When I think back, the first time I got this album while still living in South Africa, it was on a horribly noisy bootlegged cassette tape where the last song was cut off half way, I then searched for years to no avail eventually finding the CD in a little record store in Taipei City and now years later I finally have it on vinyl. Out of all these experiences, not surprisingly, having it on vinyl is by far the best.
I'd highly recommend this album if you are a fan of Dinosaur Jr. or if you really love 90's music and want something truly exceptional that you might not have explored yet, to relight those years the best way possible — with a little 90's Dinosaur Jr. fossil fuel!

The packaging was clearly not up to the task as my beautiful 180g vinyl arrived looking like a Pringle. Dissappointing.Published on March 22, 2014 by Marcus
