J Mascis is a stellar musician. Mascis is the lead guitarist and main songwriter for alternative rock band Dinosaur Jr.. Mascis has been recognized for his guitar expertise on multiple occasions. He was ranked number 86 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time", and also ranked 5th in Spin's list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. When Masis played with Dinosaur Jr. his vibe was a grungy sound. When playing solo, his grunge lessens as he trades his electric guitar for an acoustic. Tied to a Star is his most recent solo album. It is hard to follow such an amazing album as Several Shades of Why? but Tied to a Star has exceeded expectations. Mascis is able to soothe any listener with his seductive guitar skills and soft-spoken voice. The track "Wide Awake" features guest vocals from Cat Power. The guitar in song 'Wide Awake' is a gorgeous display of musical talent. It meshes so perfectly with J Mascis' voice. Personally, I prefer J Mascis in his solo form. Don't get me wrong, Dinosaur Jr. has been extremely influential and enjoyable to listen but there is something captivating about Mascis playing solo which we don't hear when he plays with Dinosaur Jr.. This album absolutely radiates when spun on vinyl.
