    As a massive Dino fan i can only express mild dissapointment with this album. I like "Beyond" but i really wanted to LOVE this album not just like it so i've forced myself to listen to it every day for a week in my car. I just can't get into it though, the songs are nice but forgettable. Ther's nothing on here as catchy as Freak Scene or as raw as Sludgefeast for example As a massive Dino fan i can only express mild dissapointment with this album.

Ther's nothing on here as catchy as Freak Scene or as raw as Sludgefeast for example and it certainly doesn't compare to "Bug" or "Your Living All Over Me". I seem to be in the minority though and i still worship J Mascis, so hey ho. Expand

  1. These 50 minutes of music are as cohesive as they are conquering.

    With a sound closer to the Sire output than their SST days, Mascis throws around his best set of songs since Where You Been. [#17, p.84]

    Beyond doesn't break any new ground, but... it's as refreshing as anything you're likely to hear all year. [May 2007, p.93]
