We gave it a C+

Singer-guitarist J Mascis cooked up some of the past decade’s tastiest rock by blending elements of Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix, and the Stooges into a messy musical stew, but Dinosaur Jr’s ninth album, Hand It Over, is none too appetizing. Aside from the moving eight-minute opus ”Alone,” the new songs sound formulaic, and Mascis’ stumblebum guitar-hero persona and wearier-than-thou vocals have grown, well, tired. Extinction beckons.
