J Mascis: “Several Shades of Why”

I like Dinosaur Jr. a fair bit– their 2007 album Beyond is actually my favorite; that’s sacrilege to those who revere their earlier, college rock staples, I know, but there it is– and so I was prepared to enjoy the long-awaited J Mascis solo album as a sort of Dinosaur-gone-acoustic offering. Imagine my surprise to find that the record is actually much more varied– and much richer– than that. My full review of Several Shades of Why is posted at Stereo Subversion.
