Imagination Blind

April 3, 2010


Dinosaur Jr. bringing you Imagination Blind. Here’s Lou Barlow doing an acoustic version, I love it.

This track is the closing track to Dinosaur Jr’s 9th album Farm released in June of 2009 2 years after their 2007 release Beyond. Now whats interesting about this is that Beyond was their first release in 10 years. They hadn’t released an album since 1997’s Hand it Over, and when Beyond came out and I heard it I thought it was great and they would never be able to top it. Well I was wrong, 2 years later they released Farm and I have a tendency to listen to Farm more than Beyond. It’s an awesome album, don’t get me wrong they are both great, but I like Farm more. Especially the album art featured below:

Here’s a quote from Marc Masters (who I agree with wholeheartedly with) at pitchfork about the album:
Beyond, the first album to feature the original Dinosaur Jr. lineup since their 1980s heyday, was so surprisingly good it was tempting to call it a fluke. Tempting, but wrong– two years after its release, it still sounds great, on par with the early, hallowed triumvirate of Dinosaur, You’re Living All Over Me, and Bug. For any cynics still chalking Beyond up to luck, Farm should blast the scales from your jaded eyes. Energetic, confident, and catchy, it’s even more compelling than Beyond.
