Editorial Reviews

Review

"A growing Alexandria of rock criticism (Los Angeles Times, 2008) Ideal for the rock geek who thinks liner notes just aren't enough (Rolling Stone) One of the coolest publishing imprints on the planet (Bookslut) These are for the insane collectors out there who appreciate fantastic design, well-executed thinking, and things that make your house look cool. Each volume in this series takes a seminal album and breaks it down in startling minutiae. We love these. We are huge nerds. (Vice) A brilliant series...each one a word of real love (NME (UK)) Passionate, obsessive, and smart (Nylon) Religious tracts for the nock 'n' roll faithful (Uncut (UK)) For those of you who really like to know everything there is to know about an album, you'd do well to check out Continuum's "33 1/3" series of books." (Pitchfork)"

This book covers everything Dinosaur, from the Deep Wound days to the reunion years of Beyond and Farm. That's not to say that there isn't a heavy emphasis on You're Living All Over Me, but the book is anything but one-dimensional. Writer Nick Atfield never comes off as pretentious or self-important. His album and lyric analysis make you think more about things as opposed to some writers whose analyzations of art are so off-base that they are cringe inducing. He also interviews the band members and they all contributed a separate foreword to the book. The only complaint I have is that there is one photo in the book. With 132 pages before the reference section, a photo every 10 to 13 pages would have been an extremely rewarding addition. I would recommend this to the casual fan as well as the Dino die-hard.

I have read some pretty scathing reviews regarding the books in the 33 1/3 series. If those books are indeed rough reads that miss the point, than this one is smooth and on target, maybe even a high-water mark. I can only hope that Atfield works on more books for this series. I would even suggest he does another Dino album, maybe Green Mind or Hand It Over, as his notes and writing would be a great addition to any future box-set or reissue involving them. Atfield could even accomplish a compelling and thorough biography of the band if he ever sought to.

anything about dinosaur is a must read, as is this, but it left me wanting more. even though its intention was only to cover one album, he does a fair job of covering the early days of deep wound, and alludes to the reunion era, which is awesome and sort of a tease. his analysis of lyrics and music are fair. he even admits to the problematic nature of writing about music, especially music that's as vague and abstract as dinosaur's, making the band more about the experience of seeing them and their interpersonal relationships. there's so much here to write about and investigate, this band needs a full length book that covers both j and lou's careers (sebadoh and the fog). i know i'm not alone in the sentiment, and am confident its only a matter of time.

Wonderful story about the transition from adolescence to adulthood and the strife that went in to one of the great guitar albums of the 1980s.

Format: Paperback
This is a fairly straight-forward entry in the 33 1/3 series, and I mean that in a good way. Nick Attfield chronicles Dinosaur Jr's history with, obviously, a heavy emphasis on You're Living All Over Me. His writing style is pleasantly unembellished and unconceited: no pretentious, over-intellectual bombast to speak of.

I've read dozens of online Dinosaur Jr bios (Wikipedia, allmusic, etc.) and I've read Michael Azerrad's terrific "Our Band Could Be Your Life" so I wasn't sure how much new info I'd stand to glean from this book. The answer: a lot. Attfield repeatedly cites Azerrad's book and uses it as an opportunity to build on it and/or offer additional insight from a different point of view. Essentially he uses it to his - and the reader's - advantage.

Finally, I know a lot of people complain in these reviews about 33 1/3 writers inserting their own autobiographical bits into their books. Just for the record, Attfield does not do this whatsoever. His fantastic entry into this book series is 100% Dino. He paints a great picture of who J, Lou & Murph are and how they got started. Plenty of great info, facts, trivia nuggets, etc.: exactly what practically everyone wants from a 33 1/3 book.
