AllMusic Review by

Released in conjunction with Dinosaur Jr.'s appearance on the 1993 Lollapalooza tour, this four-song promo disc spotlights the Where You Been track "Goin' Home," arguably the softest, sweetest moment in the band's oeuvre. An acoustic breakup song filtered through J Mascis' typically laconic worldview, it's as much a showcase for his guitar playing as any of the band's eardrum-splitting freakouts, capturing the nimble dexterity at work behind the sonic assault. Three exclusive live cuts -- "Quest," "Kracked," and "Keeblin'" -- round out the disc, and while interesting, they collectively prove the sheer impossibility of accurately documenting the full scope of the Dinosaur Jr. live experience on disc.
