When I received my copy of the new Dinosaur Jr album I just couldn’t stop listening to it. In fact, I’ve probably listened to it more that any other recently bought album. It’s just that good. I actually think it’s going to end up on my top ten at the of the year.
If you’ve ever been a fan of this band you find that it was definitely worth the wait for this album. The fuzzy guitar sounds are a welcome sound since I was just listening to a lot of hardcore for a while. Also, I just needed a change of pace which this brought.
This is the “purple” version of the album. As you can see, I had to shine a light through it since it looks much better this way and is definitely more “purple” than when laying on a flat surface.
There is also a more limited clear version that was only sold at Newbury Comics, which I totally slept on. That version was limited to 500 copies which came with a 7″ as well. Damn.
Either way I’m glad this came out since it’s been four years since the last album, which is was way too long for my taste.
