This decade has seen the reunions of plenty of great underground-rock bands—from The Pixies and My Bloody Valentine to Pavement and The Jesus Lizard—but none of these reunions have been less probable than that of Dinosaur Jr.’s original lineup of J Mascis, Lou Barlow and drummer Murph. On Dinosaur Jr.’s 2007 comeback album Beyond, they made up for lost time, quickly bridging the gap between their edgy ’80s albums and the cleaner, sprawling ’90s albums made without Barlow. This year’s Farm is even better, a beast of a record with a bigger sound, bigger hooks and bigger guitar solos. It ranks among the band’s finest, which is high praise indeed. All reunions should be as fruitful as this one.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
