if beyond was dinosaur jrs return to form, farm is proof that this band continues to deliver rock worth cranking up to 11. at times wholly 70s guitar epic, at other times perfect for sitting by a babbling brook with joni and neil, farm encompasses dinosaur jrs signature palette ? soaring and distorted guitar, unshakable hooks, honey rich melodies, with songs that get into your head and, bouncing around happily, stay there. the worry about the reunion of the original dinosaur jr. line up, more than 20 years after their formation and legendary dissolution, was that these guys were just flogging the back catalogue as a marketing gimmick. with the release of beyond, in 2007, the band gave a hearty marshall driven f**k you! answer to those inquiring ears. farm was recorded in j.mascis bisquiteen studio in amherst, massachusetts, and was produced by mascis. the video for over it, shot in atlanta, sees the band performing crazy bmx and skateboard tricks.
