A brief, eight-song compilation of the group's SST singles, Fossils
effectively sums up the power and vision of Dinosaur Jr.
's early work. Not only does it contain the two masterpieces from You're Living All Over Me
-- "Little Fury Things" and "Freak Scene," respectively -- but it also gathers several excellent B-sides, including sardonic covers of Peter Frampton
's "Show Me the Way" and the Cure
's "Just Like Heaven," making it an excellent retrospective of Dinosaur
's influential and erratic indie recordings.
