    It was time for J. Mascis to move on from his Dinosaur Jr. days. He may never leave the comfortable environs of his home studio in Amherst, Massachusetts, but at least he can import folks like My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields to add sonic deviation. "Where'd You Go" and "Back Before You Go" have a Southern rock vibe running through them. Even more revealing, however, are the moodier pieces in which the arrangements head into psychedelic territory ("Waistin," "Ground Me to You") with swirling keyboards and subtler guitar moves.
