DINOSAUR JR. – SWEEP IT INTO SPACE – ALBUM REVIEW
‘Sweep It Into Space’ is the fifth new studio album from Dinosaur Jr. since their 2005 reformation, and they continue to justify their return. Recorded back in 2019 and delayed by the pandemic, ‘Sweep It Into Space’ is worth the wait for fans.
J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph have shown once again their knack for producing easy listening yet rough and ready rock music. With a little help this time from Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr. once again manage to capture the essence of the alt rock genre.
There are luscious solos, beefy riffs and catchy vocals all stirred in with the punchy rhythm section. Listening to this album is evidence again of the influence that the band has had on American rock music. You can pick out many aspects that are core Dinosaur Jr. traits that are now standard fare for other such artists.

It’s difficult to pick out particular songs as highlights here as the whole album flows perfectly from beginning to end. The likes of ‘I Ran Away’ and ‘Garden’ do however provide a good flavour of what to expect.
With the band still able to produce records of this quality, it must be hoped that the second coming of this iconic band has no end.
