4.0 excellentBrendan M. | July 10th 14

Dinosaur Jr. being on a major label was rather sketchy in the first place. While they never released an outright bad record, it seemed as if a more polished sound for the fuzzy-alt rockers could've been damaging. While they never released any masterpieces that fight against the great Your're Living All Over Me, Where You Been is the closest they ever came to topping it in these years. By basically making a noisier version of Green Mind, they basically crafted a more polished hybrid of Bug. The guitars are jangly, yet noisy, the songwriting is damn near impeccable, the sound as a band feels wholesome and welcoming. Occasionally Green Mind felt as if it was being dominated by J, but Where You Been is where Dino feels like a band once again, despite J's large presence. Some tracks may feel like filler, but it doesn't take away from the fact that this is the best major label era Dino record. Overall, a damn near perfect balance of the classic Dino sound as well as the Bug/Green Mind sound. 4.2/5

4.0 excellentHarrison Muecke | November 23rd 07

At first the album seemed linear, one-angled, and it dragged on a bit towards the end. Yet, upon further, deeper listens, the music began to speak to me in a different way. It doesn't grasp the listener at the first, or second, or maybe even fifth listen. But suddenly it becomes different notes, different vocals, different music on that Nth listen. On that Nth listen it just fits, it works, and it hit me. Where You Been is a deeper and more complex album than you would initially realize on first listen. It might boil down to be alienating at first, Johnson's inaudible bass may begin peeve you, or simply J Mascis doesn't end up having your style of voice. Yet, the impurities of this album is what makes it so honest and fascinating. There is no heart wrenching pain, no hidden messages, no joyous celebration, no over-production. It's crude, unperfected, surface oriented alternative rock. Yet, whenever i spin this CD, it makes me just want to sit down and...smile.
