Dinosaur Jr. got a break with a record label and so Murph was offered the drumming job. The drums are beaten hard but he doesn't force any attraction, just going mostly with the flow of the compositions. He doesn't exhibit much pizzazz or embellishment, but his beats aren't absent. Then again most of the songs move with a relaxed and easygoing pace. Track number ten, Mirror, starts with the drums playing a mixed combination of beat tones. The guitar strums out a high note series of chords in the fashion of eighties blues rock. The album's title, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, sounds like a challenge of irony. In turn they themselves show influences of other genres that they're not associated with. They borrowed some melodies from David Bowie, who is classified under glam rock. Some of the vocal lilts sound similar to Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam, which is a grunge band.
The latest from the re-reconstituted Dinosaur Jr. proves the equilibrium they discovered on their 2007 comeback Beyond remains intact. On their latest, the steady and excellent Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, it’s clear that their well for inspiration has not yet run dry. Beginning with Beyond in 2007, each of the Dinosaur Jr. new records have been relatively consistent in form, structure and quality. Although regularly cited as a return to the original band’s sound, the recent songwriting truthfully draws less from the trio’s first go-around and more from the melodic guitar pop of J Mascis’ underrated solo records More Light (2000) and Free So Free (2002)
Arriving four years after 2012's I Bet on Sky - the longest stretch of time between albums since Dinosaur Jr. became an active band again in 2007 - Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not doesn't offer any surface surprises, at least not along the lines of the roaring reunion of 2007's Beyond, or the keyboard colorings of. I Bet on Sky. That's not to say Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not doesn't surprise, because it does - namely, it shocks by sounding as vital as Dinosaur Jr. ever has.
