Dinosaur Jr. – Hand It Over – Review

May 1, 1997

Hand It Over is vintage Dino Jr. – Sonic Youth-like noise rock, married to Neil Young-esque whomping, feedback-drenched melodies and lyrics of tragedy ‘n’ loss.

J. Mascis – Martin and Me – Review

June 1, 1996

Call it Dinosaur Defuzzed. I feel kinda bad for ol’ J, having to watch former band mates rake in the kudos while Proto-slacker Number One is left in the lurch.

The Goops – Lucky – Review

May 1, 1996

This disc is simply loaded with attitude, both lyrically and in terms of its delivery, due in no small part to the raspy, smart-ass vocals of Eleanor Whitledge.

Angus Soundtrack – Review

November 1, 1995

Ash – Trailer – Review

November 1, 1995

Filter – Short Bus – Review

May 1, 1995

“Hey man, Nice shot” was on the Demon Knight soundtrack and got so much radioplay, the release date was pushed up to now.

Dio – Strange Highways – Review

April 1, 1994

Don’t expect any extreme diversity, this is a straight forward power extravaganza of the true metallic sort. This may well be Dio’s heaviest to date.
