what is everybody’s (not EVERYbody’s) problem with Green Mind, i think it’s amazing, with songs like Water, Thumb, Green Mind, The Wagon and Flying cloud i think it’s up there with the best. For me, there isn’t a bad song on it.
I mean, people are entitled to their own opinions but i was just wondering why so many people dislike it?

For real. It’s always been one of my favorites. Not to mention a college radio friggin smash! I agree, not a bad song. But alas, I also agree, everyone’s got an opinion. About pretty much everything.

I totally agree. The album is great. The Wagon is a masterpiece as good as any. And there are lots of other good songs on it.

I think its because its such a drastic change from the previous DInosaur Jr albums which where all hard rocking and had a completly different sound, those like me who loved there old sound, loved the old albums more, even Green Mind is a really good album but, its not the dinosaur Jr of old

I love Green Mind
the Wagon got it all started for me. Theumb is so good in any situation Water It is great every time I had trouble in Tony Hawk I just put that Disc on to calm me and it always came through

It was year -92 when I first time heard Dinosaur jr song Wagon and soon after that I bought a Green Mind album. It was like a kick in the face. Since that day I’ve heard all the Dinosaur jr and J albums numerous times and I love them all but it was Green Mind that was my first love with J’s music and in my alltime favorite albums chart it’s still number one and I guess it allways will be.

no beef with green mind here…in fact I quite love it…check out my reply to tony(deepsludge) in the lyrics section for my view of WATER [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]September 29, 2001 at 4:36 pm #56695
Green Mind started things for me too, specifically Puke +Cry. Agree on solos and lyrics. Ten years later, I am still finding new things to relate them to. Thanks ta yawll, I have a better conceptual vision of what he gets at in a lot of the songs and also how sometimes J’s lyrics can be approached and understood from multiple angles. Thanks a’gin to FreakScene.September 29, 2001 at 5:38 pm #56696
Green Mind never sucked, continues to thrill me to this day…every single song [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

Of the albums where the artist is listed as Dinosaur Jr., Green Mind is my favorite album.September 30, 2001 at 2:02 am #56699
Just wanted to reactivate this topic, what does everyone think of Green Mind now? Particularly since there are so many more members now than when this was posted first.
I got it yesterday and my first impression was that the production sounded to me like Bug, I notice both were made at Fort Apache North.
Like to know more from you guys, particularly the great Salamiguy.September 30, 2001 at 2:36 am #56700
Here’s a few reasons why I love Green Mind so much:
The cover photo
The wicked songs (most of them simple enough to figure out the chords to in no time)
The lyrics (J at his best, IMHO)
The guitar sound (mellow, but with claws that shreds)
The maximum kick ass sabre-toothed solos
The wicked backing vocals that I’ve often missed so much in the later Dino albums
The way Blowing It rolls over into I live for that look
