DINOSAUR JR Green Mind (Original 1991 UK 10-track CD album which spawned the single The Wagon complete with picture sleeve inlay)
Le silence qui précéda la sortie de cet album trois ans permit au leader de Dinosaur Jr de faire le point. En même temps, ce très peu médiatique J. Mascis sy livre à un exercice nouveau pour lui : il offre en effet avec Green Mind son premier album solo (même si le batteur Murph officie sur trois titres). Est-ce la solitude devant la création, ou ces années dabsence de la scène, toujours est-il que Dinosaur Jr présente là un album où la guitare acoustique fait une apparition remarquée, à côté des très stridentes électriques que J. Mascis a toujours utilisées, lui linventeur même de la guitare à la soude caustique. Cest vrai que cet homme produit dailleurs le même effet avec sa voix triste, désabusée, larmoyante et ses doigts sur le manche. Une émotion crispée, à limpact direct, cinglant comme une mauvaise nouvelle. Cet effet curieusement se fait plus vif encore lorsque Mascis sempare dune guitare sèche très sèche et parle des nuages ("Flying Cloud"). En véritable père spirituel de ce qui devint le grunge plus tard, Dinosaur Jr poursuit cependant son assaut vigoureux et propulse ici une poignée de chansons inoubliables ("How Youd Pin"), soffrant même une surprenante incursion en territoire funk ("Muck"). Ce qui domine au final, cest, malgré lindomptable énergie qui submerge le disque, une grande lassitude, celle qui donne à Dinosaur Jr. et à la musique de son créateur ce caractère si singulier et si attachant. --José Ruiz

First of all, is there any doubt that J. has one of the most memorable rock voices ever? His aching, warbling croak simultaneously brings to mind Paul Westerberg, Eddie Vedder, and even a little Kurt Cobain, but J. never sacrifices his individuality. He also accompanies himself brilliantly on the guitar, getting quite a bit of mileage out of just a few chords. Throughout the album, J. expertly mixes head-banging riffs, addictive pop hooks, and the occasional dose of gentle acoustics (see "Flying Cloud" for an example of the latter). Where J. really lets loose, though, is with his searing solos, which will bounce around in your head for days after you hear them. Throw in some truly monstrous drumbeats, and you've got something that goes well beyond your typical indie-rock album.
"Green Mind" bursts right out of the gate with the up-tempo pop-rock of "Wagon," which is easily one of the catchiest songs ever to open an album. "Wagon" is followed up brilliantly by the massive hooks of "Puke + Cry," the hard-driving rhythms of "Blowing It," and the dense, metallic "I Live For That Look." Later on, J. scores again with the moody alt-rock of "Water" and the slow-paced curveball "Thumb," which even brings a mellotron into the mix for some added atmosphere. The album closes with yet another brilliant piece of noise in the form of the title track, propelled by a classic riff and some maniacal drumming.
For sheer enjoyment, it's pretty tough to top this album. It's too bad Dinosaur Jr. never really managed to break out into the big time, but that doesn't mean they're not worth checking out. For fans of bands like the Pixies, the Replacements, and Husker Du, "Green Mind" is absolutlely essential.
Although it is practically a One-man solo project ran by Dinosaur's leader/vocalist J. Mascis. Drummer Murph only contributes his drum banging on three of the original's ten tracks.
Green Mind, is the Band's fourth release and it is more mellow and less abrasive and heavy than their previous works. This does show the Band maturing and moving forward w/ the most variety so far.
"The Wagon" - starts things off on the right foot and continues the Dinosaur Jr. tradition of beginning each album with a Killer (hit) track!
The album's inner notes sum up this song Best by saying "The Wagon teeters between raging emotions and raging guitars perfectly."
Green Mind also features My All-Time Favorite Song: "How Did You Pin That One On Me" - Rolling Stone magazine says this is: "..the glorious noise every garage band dreams of."
This album also features for the first time acoustic sounds that may have turned off many hard-core Dino-fans and/or music critics, but I just LOVE this transition. I think they took their heavy sounds as far as it could go from their indie debut through my fave - "Bug"
A couple more melodic or acoustic songs are "Flying Cloud" which sounds kind of like a folky Led Zeppelin number maybe off their 1969 2nd record, like "The Lemon Song."
And the other more melodic acoustic song is "Water" - a gorgeous relaxingly catchy track w/ soothing Neil Young inspired vocals.
This Re-mastered Cd contains three bonus tracks: 1)Hot Burrito #2 - a cover from Gram Parsons and features background vocals from actor Matt Dillon! 2) "Turnip Farm" - off the "Reality Bites" movie soundtrack & 3) "Forget It" - My Favorite Bonus track of these three and a perfect closer.
Although the departure of Barlow is clear from the style of the songs, J Mascis clearly had enough material to make for an excellent album all the way through. "The Wagon" is a throwback to old Dinosaur Jr, while stripped down songs like "Thumb", "Water", and "Green Mind" offer a preview of the future. The solos are still vintage Mascis, which is to say mind-blowing.
Some folks will swear off Dinosaur Jr after Barlow's departure, and I think that's understandable. They were a completely different band sans Barlow. However, this CD stands out on its own. It's everything else after this (not counting "Whatever's Cool With Me") that is subpar for Dinosaur Jr. I continued to buy all the CDs, but clearly they weren't the same band and the departure of Lou had hit hard.
Maybe now that Sebadoh has hit the wall, Barlow and Mascis can put aside their animosity and reunite for one final and amazing hoorah.
Green Mind, the first all-new Dinosaur Jr album to appear after the infamous spilt with Lou Barlow, was released during the Spring of 1991. The timing should have been fortuitous, poised right at the cusp of the grunge onlaught. But despite J Masics' more poised songwriting, the album, laced with rough production values and rambling song structures that still seemed to bear the stamp of the Barlow collaboration, was still too remote for audiences, so instead of becoming the standard-bearer for the alternative movement, Green Mind was subsumed by the Nirvana/PearlJam tidal wave. Shame, too: this was probably the most manically inspired album of Mascis' career.
The Wagon, which in later years seemed to become an emblem for the band itself (listen to "Quicksand" from Whatever's Cool With Me), is so rollicking and spontaneous that it feels as if Mascis wrote in his head simultaneously with recording it. Blowing It, typical of J's ability to switch phrasing and rhythm without ever breaking the tempo of the song, is the musical equivalent of rubbing your stomach and patting your head at the same time. Flying Cloud, with its open suspensions and remote vocals, probably recalls Neil Young more clearly than any other song Mascis wrote. All in all, this is a must-have for any grungeophile.
