BUG Band: Dinosaur Jr. Release:1988 Genre:Alternative/ Indie Pop/ Indie Rock This is a relatively cleaner-produced and more accessible album than You're Living All Over Me. Bug expanded on the strengths of its predecessor and firmly established Dinosaur Jr. as a major band in the American underground. Although the majority of the album is firmly situated in the sprawling, noisy metallic fusion of hard rock and avant noise it also shows J Mascis' talent for winding folk-rock, particularly on "The Post" and "Pond Song." Like the album before, the songs on Bug are quite uneven, but it is a major step forward for Mascis, particularly on the masterpiece of the record, "Freak Scene." I love this album along with, You're Living All Over Me, Beyond, and Farm. 10/10.
