We all know Dinosaur Jr. is amazing, there really isn't much debate over that. However, many of their albums were released without the original lineup of J., Lou Barlow, and Murph. Their first three albums- "Dinosaur", "You're Living All Over Me", and "Bug" - are the only albums created with the original lineup ... then "Beyond" came along in '07 around the same time as their reunion tour and the original lineup was back. Personally, I thought "Beyond" could have been better (my expectations were high), but it was a really awesome album regardless. Earlier on in the year I had heard that Dino was going to release a new album and since have been anxiously awaiting. Not only that, but I was also excited that they were now signed to jagjaguwar, a very prominent indie label that has signed the likes of Sunset Rubdown, Pink Mountaintops, and Julie Doiron, among others. I wasn't a big fan of Merge and was a little dissappointed when I had found out "Beyond" would be released under them.
Personally, I think everyone should download this simply on the principle that it's a new Dino album, but I recognize that not everyone may be as excited about it as I am. The album itself sounds amazing, arguably better than Beyond, and reminds me a lot of the "Where You Been" era of Dinosaur Jr. (aside from "You're Living All Over Me," my favourite Dinosaur Jr. album). Give it a try and pick yourself up a hard copy on June 23rd (along with the new Sunset Rubdown album, Dragonslayer).

Here it is, enjoy.

EDIT: since it was taken down, I'll at least link to the Daytrotter Sessions. hopefully the web sheriff doesn't rape that too.
