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 and Bug — "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.
