A mammoth project Though no one really forgot them during their hiatus, it's fair to say that alt.rock legends Dinosaur Jr have firmly re-established their importance since reforming in 2005. Since their regeneration, the influential Massachusetts trio have released two great albums and one very good one, plus a live DVD, but this new book could well be the pinnacle of their comeback - and there isn't even any music. Rather, Dinosaur Jr is a lavish oral history of the band, telling their own story in their own words, and those of others who were there, from all-new interviews. These are placed alongside a series of visually stunning photos - some previously unseen - and reproductions of vintage tour posters, zine interviews and even the original ad placed by J Mascis and Lou Barlow, when they were in search of the band's third member. Unpretentious and honest, it relates the story and the personalities that make up Dinosaur Jr in a simple but effective way. It's perhaps not the detailed history some would have wanted, but it's a celebration rather than a biography, and, as such, does its job perfectly. Presumably, the GBP250 Signature Edition will do even better... 4 stars -- Mischa Pearlman. Record Collector MagazineRezension:

Record Collector A thing of beauty -- Paul Brannigan. Classic Rock Teeming with tension that frequently explodes into cathartic rages ... talkative and open about their past in a way that hasn't been hinted at elsewhere ... an insight into the dysfunction at the heart of Dinosaur Jr... if Travis Bickle was in a rock band, this is what he'd sound like. -- Julian Marszalek. The Quietus It's almost like they knew they'd be putting this book together one day -- Matt Melis. Consequence of Sound
