Without a Sound

Without a Sound

Without a Sound is the sixth studio album by alternative rock band Dinosaur Jr, released on August 23, 1994. It is the first Dinosaur Jr. album not to feature Murph on drums, who is replaced by vocalist and guitarist J. Mascis. It is also their most commercially successful album, peaking at number 44 on the Billboard Top 200. However, it is probably the band's least well-regarded albums by fans and critics. Mascis later admitted that his father's death affected his writing and performance on this album, and he took three years to deliver the the next Dinosaur Jr LP, 1997's Hand It Over.

"Feel the Pain" was confirmed as a playable track for the 2008 video games Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour.
