As someone who's had this week's Slint reunion circled on my calendar for quite some time, I would never take issue with a well-deserved victory-lap reunion tour. And it's actually some of these "new lease on life" reunions that have come to fruition over the last decade that get me most excited. While Dinosaur Jr. and Wire both re-emerged to deserved critical acclaim in recent years, it might be Mission of Burma that have had the most stunning resurgence. I wasn't born when the Boston post-punk quartet released Vs. before calling it quits back in 1983, and I was in college when I first came across the band by way of their 2004 comeback album, ONoffON. That staggering gap would mean little without something new to show for it, and the off-kilter aggression transmitted by Mission of Burma since their return has taken them to new heights.
