I'd say your next two should be Bug and Where You Been.

probably be shouted down by dinosaur jr. purists, but "where you been" is definitely one of the better albums to start on, having said that you can't go too far wrong with any of them really.

If you like YLAOM you should really head onto the first self-titled one, especially if you're into the more noisey and psychedelic side of things. I don't know why it hasn't been suggested already? That album has some amazing songs on it...

After that get Green Mind and either Bug or Without A Sound

Rewind to the first album, then get Bug and the Fossils singles compilation (soooo good). That should keep you busy and very happy for a good while.

Then you're into Dinosaur Jr part II, which although familiar sounding is a different prospect post Barlow. Green Mind and Where You Been are both amazing records, but things start to slide a bit with Without a Sound. Still a good album, but it's essentially a Mascis solo record and he starts to over indulge himself. Hand it Over has it's moments but has similar problems to it's predecessor (Alone - urgggghhhhh).

Still don't think I like the reunion record.
