Hand It Over is the seventh studio album by alternative rock band Dinosaur Jr., released on March 25, 1997 on Reprise Records. It peaked at #188 in the United States. According to a 2007 Magnet magazine interview with band leader J Mascis, Hand It Over is his favorite album from the group's major label period of the 1990s.[9] The band enjoyed a somewhat renewed appreciation from critics on Hand It Over. However, in the years following the band's hiatus, Hand It Over would become hard to find due to it not having the initial strong sales of Where You Been and Without a Sound which both sported moderate radio hits. Hand It Over sold 34,000 units in US. [10]
