You Say: “Made good all the bit­ter­ness, and a fan­tas­tic record to boot. Rolled back the decades.” Ol­lie Lloyd, via e-mail Few bands seemed less likely to re­form than the orig­i­nal line-up of Di­nosaur Jr, whose nearly-two-decades of frac­tious spite had played out across back­stage tantrums, ac­ri­mo­nious law­suits and the oc­ca­sional un­guarded lyric (Bar­low’s mea culpa The Freed Pig). But, fol­low­ing their suc­cess­ful re­u­nion tours a cou­ple of years ear­lier, J, Lou and Murph cut their first al­bum of new ma­te­rial in al­most 20 years. And if Be­yond owed as much to the group’s post-Lou Sire out­put as to their orig­i­nal tril­ogy of al­bums, it was of a stan­dard that did the re­main­der of their discog­ra­phy proud – the sound of a band not merely re­vived, but re­viv­i­fied.
