CD Reviews

A great follow-up to the greatest album of all time

""Bug" is an outstanding album on its own, though it is not-- in my opinion-- as good as its predecessor. Still, there is little to complain about on this CD. Even the uber-obnoxious "Don't" is tolerable due to J Mascis' extended jam in the background. "Freak Scene" is a Dinosaur staple. "They Always Come" is a punk delight that transforms into an orgasmic, heavenly, layered guitar burst for its second half. Even the overlooked "The Post" was good enough for the Cowboy Junkies to later cover (with questionable success). This is a must-have for any respectable Dinosaur fan, or for any fan of true indie rock."

"While many say "You're Living All Over Me" is the classic (and it is amazing) this is the one that got one Dinosaur Jr. on the list of "high-class" indie rockers. With good reason too. J Mascis' lazy voice, which is not a bad thing, and noisy distorted guitar spiked with feedback, Lou Barlow's (who went on to form the wonderful band Sebadoh) catchy bass lines, and Murph's laid-back one second and crazily energetic the next drumming all form to make an amazing sound. In fact, back in the day along with "The Minutemen," "Husker Du," and "The Meat Puppets" helped define the SST scene. From the open toe-tapping song "Freak Scene," you know this is a winner. How J manages to make an amazingly amazing song out of just five chords (E,D7,A,Em,and F#m) is beyond me. I'd assume the song is about the indie scene at the time, least that's what I'd think. "Let It Ride" is the first example of old Lou's bass skills. "Pond Song" is a melodic song with good vocals and cool guitar work. I'm pretty sure there are two guitars on this one, and maybe on some others, too. The other songs are just as good, in their own way. I'd say "Don't" is a midunderstood song. It's supposed to be ironic, J screaming "WHY DON'T YOU LIKE ME" at the top of his lungs, making it obvious why "they" think he's obnoxious and don't like him, all on top of endless fancy guitar sounds and solos.All in all, you probably don't want to get a newer Dino Jr. record first because, while I still really like the new ones, most fans have to admit those albums weren't particulary revolutionary. I'd reccomend this because it's at least a little more accsesible than "You're Living All Over Me," and still represents Dinosaur Jr. at their peak."

"To start off what a great album you can't get any better grunge than this folks i mean with songs like "POND SONG and FREAK SCENE" they are so good but also have really amazing harmonies in the back. So good don't miss this one it's such a classic and it's to bad they never really got the spotlight."
