About this deal

Barlow’s exit, to form lo-fi bards Sebadoh, was followed by a contract with major label imprint Blanco Y Negro, and a fourth album (1991’s Green Mind) that sired an unlikely underground hit in The Wagon. Following the legendarily acrimonious bust-up between singer/guitarist J Mascis and bassist/singer Lou Barlow, Dinosaur Jr. Michael Azerrad, writing for Rolling Stone, was similarly positive, writing that "their second major-label album [. I knew after getting Green Mind reissue that I couldn’t pass this one up even though already had a nice sounding original. i will say too that in the run in wax on side A there is a noticeable hum that should not be there, this does not occur on the B, C and D sides however, maybe this is just my pressing?

There was something unabashedly classic about Where You Been’s rock, deriving not least from Mascis’s copious guitar heroics, layering multiple tracks of scree and howl so the entire album feels like one epic, sky-scraping solo. He wrote that the song "I Ain't Sayin", with "its canyon-filling bookending riff to its appealing shuffle and its heartwarming “rolling home to you” chorus [.

Released to unanimously positive reviews, and containing many tracks that would become staples and fan favourites, “Where You Been” continued Dinosaur Jr’s global ascent, being issued simultaneously across the US, Europe, Australasia, Asia and South America.

All the while, Mascis' army of guitars is placed in service of his breaking heart, and the sound is majestic and moving. Formed in 1984, Dinosaur Jr carved a singular path through the latter half of the 1980s and early 1990s, issuing a number of highly influential albums in the process before finding a home with Sire Records. s greatest commercial success up to that point, reaching number 50 in the US and number 10 in the UK.

The band will play the album in full during four concerts at London’s Garage in November and seven shows at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Over the years I have collected some of those exclusive CD releases, but now I have many of those songs all in one here, and on vinyl, wow. On previous albums, the singer's relationship with the world outside seemed about as emotionally developed as a 13-year-old's. Mascis himself would go on to rank it as his 3rd best effort, saying: "We were trying really hard and it was well realized for what we wanted to do.

My only reference is my digital FLAC rip that I've listened to for years and it stands toe to toe with it. There were still moments of punked-up fury to set the moshpit alight: On the Way a slamdance immolated by howling, roaring guitar, Hide a desperate dash illuminated by passages of Sonic Youth-esque skronk.

s textbook construction of over-driven ear-worms would go on to strike chords with many later alt-90s guitar heroes. I don't know if they make a conscious effort to change, but I suppose they'd be really bored by now if they always sounded the same.Similarly the verbal spaghetti spilling over 'Hide' pre-dates Jeff Magnum's [sic] similar drawl on ‘ In the Aeroplane Over The Sea’ by a fair few years. About as quiet as I can ask for and the discs are as flat as an IHOP pancake on a Sunday after church service.
