19. Dinosaur Jr. - Without a Sound
On their sixth full-length and their first to not feature longtime drummer Murph, Dinosaur Jr. found themselves finally hitting a commercial stride off the strength of their single “Feel the Pain.” Unsurprisingly, it was Spike Jonze who again directed another video on the list and pro skateboarder Neil Blender who provided the cover art for Without a Sound. Far from the loudest Dinosaur Jr. album, Without a Sound is still packed with J Mascis’s signature soloing and songwriting. Mascis also played drums on the album, which he produced as well.
