I hate how Dinosaur Jr went back to their lo-fi sound once the original lineup reunited. You guys have money and better technology now, let's hear how you sound with good production now. If i want retro i can listen to YLAOM and Bug.
GGD have become increasingly poppy, commercial, and wimpy with every new album. But if you go back to early stuff like Hold Me Up, Superstar Car Wash, and A Boy Named Goo they had some pretty hard rocking tunes, with killer, modded Marshall tones. The albums before those were pretty punk rock...
Tight band, energetic performance, cool guitar riff, and the audience dug em. Vocals are pretty brutal though, i'm hoping the singer refines his voice or they outright replace him. Rooting for them otherwise, rock cannot die!
Dude's one of my favorite players, i truly hope this is all BS. Apologies if it's already been posted, i just found out about it now.
I didn't think it was possible to make Chamberlin sound crappy but Rubin somehow managed to. I hate Billy's post-Machina vocals and they should at least be buried deeper in the mix. Generic riffing and not even a guitar solo? They're dead, RIP.
