10. Without A Sound (1994): Without A Sound kicks off with the infectious single "Feel The Pain." The accompanying video, a confection directed by skateboarding auteur Spike Jonze, features Mascis playing a peculiar, aggressive round of golf on the streets of New York City. It's a lot of fun to watch and the perfect accompaniment to the track's ingratiating melody. Regrettably, for an album that starts with so much promise, the rest of the material feels somewhat uninspired. Mascis had relieved Murph of his duties at this point, making Without A Sound more or less J's effort at being a one-man-band (Mike Johnson was still along for the ride, but seems to have little more creative impact than a session player). Mascis is clearly a gifted drummer but perhaps this final gesture of something resembling total authority is simply one consolidation too many. Without A Sound is technically proficient and amongst their most commercially successful records, but feels devoid of some of the spirit that had come to define the band in the first place.
