Dinosaur Jr was one of the first bands that I loved and I didn't care if anyone else liked it or not.
My introduction to Dinosaur Jr was 'Bug' and it's still my favorite album of his. Over the years I had pretty good luck using "Freak Scene" to evangelize my friends to the band. Though I abruptly lost a few when I played the Dino Jr. cover of Just Like Heaven :) Of late, my favorite is "I walk for Miles." One of his best riffs IMO. Can't wait to see the recent documentary about them. The Dino Jr. chapter in Our Band could be your life reads like a scary cautionary tale about being in a band.
Song for song, this is my favorite Dino Jr. album. That’s saying a lot because I’m a big ol Sebadoh fan too. The two SST albums are close.. they both have some flaws but that’s part of the charm.
