j’s decidedly acoustic approach suits his knack for lush pop melodies down to a tee while his athletic electric guitar solos keep us dinosaur jr fans grinning with glee.

the gentleness of the approach here will draw easy comparisons to Neil Young's range between solo and Crazy Horse. ‘Elastic Days’ brims with great moments. Epic hooks that snare you in surprisingly subtle ways, guitar textures that slide against each other like old lovers, and structures that range from a neo-power-ballad (“Web So Dense”) to jazzily-canted West Coasty post-psych (“Give It Off”) to a track that subliminally recalls the keyboard approach of Scott Thurston-era Stooges (“Drop Me”). Fans of wilco, stephen malkmus and john frusciante’s mid 2000’s output should pay close attention to this. “this dinosaur senior is a miracle of ongoing evolution” 8/10 – uncut.
