The second of our Dinosaur Jr. remastered 180g re-issues, is their fifth official studio album 'Where You Been' and was originally released in Feb 1993. The album featured the single 'Start Choppin' was their biggest hit, hitting number 3 on the Rock Charts in the USA and Top 20 in the UK Singles Chart.

There was something unabashedly classic about 'Where You Been's rock. Released at the height of 'grunge', it cleverly avoided any Nirvana-esque crossover, not least from Mascis's copious guitar heroics, layering multiple tracks of scree and howl so the entire album feels like one epic, sky-scraping solo. With his fondness for extended guitar play, his country-soaked rock crunch, his cracked and sweet vocals, the album identified Mascis as hewn from the same stone as Neil Young before him.

The album still reveals moments of punked-up fury to set the moshpit alight. "On The Way" a slamdance immolated by howling, roaring guitar, "Hide" a desperate dash illuminated by passages of Sonic Youth-esque skonk. But the albums best moments were more considered; "Not The Same" all windswept mourn, strings and tympani and Mascis' affecting whine achieving a moving drama Billy Corgan would later imitate with Smashing Pumpkins and "Get Me" the albums standout, a simple but perfect country strum sent into heaven by wave after wave of wracked, ecstatic guitar soloing that lent grand emotional erudition to Mascis' mush-mouthed mumblings.
