Dinosaur Jr. - Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not (Jagjaguwar) 2016
Dinosaur Jr. are back with something that’s way more than just “business as usual.” Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, their 11th full-length album, is undoubtedly the best of the post-2005 reunion and quite possibly (time will tell) a great highlight in their discography. The trio led by J Mascis delivers on this album an extremely satisfying experience that involves tons of amazing riffs, astounding solos, and the pop sensibility and a witty songwriting that most people can only dream about. Sure, they are not reinventing their sound, not even creating something unique/unheard, but the fact that they’ve managed to refine the winning sound they had – and that influenced countless artists – on an exciting-all-the-way-through album is as admirable as welcome. True legends.
