Roaming the earth again.As yesterday’s slackers become today’s fifty-quid men, here’s proof that you can’t keep a lucrative nostalgia industry down. Beyond sees the original Dinosaur line-up reformed, glazing over J Mascis and Lou Barlow’s years of acrimony and their encroaching middle age. They stick to the template of old: solid melodic songwriting delivered behind a barrage of cacophonous fuzz, Mascis’ mumbling adolescent vocals eclipsed by his overly expressive guitar lines. Coming in 2007 it sounds oddly fresh, but nothing here’s as full-on as their early stuff or as lovely as Feel The Pain.
Dinosaur Jr – Beyond, released 30 April 07 on Pias.
