9. Hand It Over (1997): For a man who has a habit of sounding incredibly exhausted while singing, J Mascis has always worked at a tireless pace to achieve his artistic goals. 1997's Hand It Over represents a restless talent trying to figure out what's next. He experiments on this record with instrumentation from horns ("I'm Insane") to strings ("Can't We Move This") to fruity mellotron and high harmonies ("Never Bought It") to kooky, flanged synths ("Nothin's Goin' On") and all of these ideas work, relatively, but also have the habit of gilding the lily. The result is an ambitious collection of songs that does not always hang together as a cohesive whole.
