The ever-reliable Dinosaur Jr. are back with their eleventh studio album, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not , and their sound is just as scorching, raw, and strangely vulnerable as it was when they first burst onto the scene in 1984. The band’s original line-up of J Mascis, Lou Barlow, and Murph kick out the jams in full force on this one, with two songs by Barlow (“Love Is” and “Left/Right”) and the remaining nine by Mascis. Album opener “Goin Down” wouldn’t be out of place on one of the band’s first three LPs, with heavy drums, piercing guitars plus Mascis’ simple, plaintive vocals — yet it never sounds like a throwback, just a coming-home of sorts. The band tone it down a bit for the lovely, longing “Lost All Day”; it’s one of those unexpected tracks Dinosaur Jr. sometimes makes that sneaks up on you by appealing to your sense of nostalgia for missed opportunities and time gone by. That slight melancholy ramps up even more on “Love Is,” a highlight of the album that’s insistent, lovely, and world-weary. This album should net the band some new fans, while simultaneously appealing to their longtime supporters.
