I say that like it's a good thing, natch!


maybe that's why i love it so.

mind ya, i think i hear neil young everywhere i go.


The guitar here, from J Mascis, does have NY influences, but he also goes in a very different direction often.

This is obviously the guy of the two of them who hung out with the Pixies, Bob Mould, and Nirvana etc as opposed to Stephen Stills and Nils Lofgren.

Sonic Youth is a match for both guitarists.


the beezle luvved sonic youth!

Really nice string arrangement - not exactly expected from them!

The banjo player tells us the scores:

https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/3bdx ... r-j-mascis

This album is at number three.

Interesting that he talks mainly about Nirvana when discussing this album. I would say this album is very far from anything Nirvana ever did.

Which may well be the point, and certainly does not contradict anything he says there.

I don't think there is - timpani are definitely members of the kettle drum family.

I would say that after you get over the Neil Young comparisons his guitar work is fairly unique.

He certainly gets a lot of props from the geetar press:

https://www.questia.com/magazine/1G1-13 ... inosaur-jr
https://www.guitarworld.com/features/in ... inosaur-jr

I like that phrase used to describe his work - 'sublime articulation'.

I employ a similar expression to describe my message board postings.
