    Elastic Days is Mascis at his most playful and fun, further adding to one of the most accomplished back catalogues in the history of indie rock.

    Even at 52, this Dinosaur senior is a miracle of ongoing evolution. [Dec 2018, p.88]

    The last couple of Dinosaur Jr. records in particular have been praised from all angles for their consistency, but J Mascis is continuing to fire out hidden gems under his own name, too.

    On Elastic Days, he’s somehow as accessible but elusive as ever.

    If you’re a Dinosaur Jr fan and you can live without a couple of Lou Barlow tracks per album then it would be well worth checking out Elastic Days and hearing J do what he does best in a slightly different setting.

    Like Zuma, Elastic Days takes a little time to warm up to, but once it’s sunk in, it’s as comfortable as an old pair of jeans.

    He can take his more laid-back approach too far, however, sounding as if he might be about to nod off during Web So Dense, Yet the moments of genuine loveliness more than compensate for the occasional bouts of narcolepsy. [Dec 2018, p.111]
