Dinosaur Jr is heavy, guitar driven, noise pop. Most of us probably remember these guys from their records that hit in the early nineties. With their heavy, guitar driven, distortion pop reminiscent of early Sonic Youth and Screaming Trees.

This release offers us 10 stripped down, raw and dirty songs, 8 of which are off of their first three releases. These recordings may not sound refined and well produced, but they're great. If you are a connoisseur of ultra lo-fi, basement sounding sludge rock, you are in for a treat. This release has the dirtiest versions of "In a Jar," "Leper," "Bulbs of Passion," yet to be released. Dinosaur Jr. may not have had a hit single in the past 5 years, but they are still rock prodigies and band leader J. Mascus is considered a hero among his peers. These are fine recordings spanning Jr's masterful career.
