Dinosaur Jr Hand It Over Limited Reissye 180gram Vinyl LP

Originally released in March 1997, Hand It Over is a brilliant, complex, diverse and fitting end to the Dinosaur Jr major label era. Pressed on 180g vinyl this re-issue features heavyweight sleeve and newly designed inner bag.
Bouncing back from the more measured 'Without A Sound', j Mascis turns in his most eclectic album since Green Mind with 'Hand It Over'. Dinosaurs bedrock sound still hasn't changed - its still a sprawling, electric mess of hard rock filtered through folk-rock song structures - but Mascis plays with the arrangements, adding strings, trumpets, and on a handful of tracks, My Bloody Valentine's slippery guitar orchestrations and vocals (Kevin Shields and Bilinda Butcher both sing on the album). These addition make the music sound fresh, but they would only be window dressing if Mascis' songs weren't as strong a they are.
"Alone" is a three-chord feedback masterpiece which is the closest clone of Neil Young ever recorded by Mascis (and that's not a slight; it's brilliant in its own right). Then, There’ s "Loaded," with its agonized, gut-twisting vocal and chainsaw guitar line. With almost every track, Mascis has worked the song structure, vocals and instrumentation to their most intriguing possibilities.
