Farm (2009)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Jun 23, 2009; Lead Performance: Dinosaur Jr.; Genre: Rock

The old adage ''Time heals
 all wounds'' may have no stronger proponents than Dinosaur Jr., a band whose original, critically adored lineup violently broke apart two decades ago, only to re-form in 2005 without missing a beat (or swinging a punch). Farm owes more to Dino's poppier mid-'90s alt-rock heyday than the '80s albums recorded by this configuration. Still, frontman J Mascis is more than capable of stirring up a whirlwind of melodic feedback, suitable for heshers of any age. B
