The former was listed number 40 on Pitchfork Media's 'Top 100 Albums of the 1980s.'Both albums earned spots on Beats per Minutes 'Top 100 Albums of the 1980s' and were also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. Collectively, the three albums have been lauded as important and influential works within the indie/alt-rock scene of the late 1980s and early 90s.Dinosaur Jr. had their creative differences, which caused the disbandment of the original members in the early 1990s. It took about 15 years, but in 2005, Mascis, Barlow, and Murch reunited and have since released four more records together. Their most recent album Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, came out in 2016.
