This record, along with Bug (also by Dinosaur, Jr.), helped get my through my angst-ridden rebelious college years. Without You're Living All Over Me, Big Black's Songs About ..., Slayer's South of Heaven, and Suicidal Tendencies' How Can I Laugh Tomorrow..., I don't think I would have made it.
Besides possessing one of the greatest album titles ever, You're Living All Over Me contains some of the best guitar sludge angst rock ever written or performed. This was recorded in 1987, while Dinosaur, Jr. was still a band, and not just the J. Mascis show. The vitality and tension of the band really comes through on the tracks in a way that nothing from Dinosaur's post-Bug period ever has (Green Mind was the last great Dino record in my opinion). Plus, J's vocals and lyrics are more heartfelt than any other 80's band that I can think of. The only 80's singer to come close to J's emotional intensity was Big Black's Steve Albini, or maybe Minor Threat's Ian MacKaye. Besides the singing, J. Mascis is truly a guitar hero. His ability and presence are stunning, but what makes it is the fact that he brings even more emotional intensity to his guitar solos than he does to his singing. And don't let me neglect to mention the amazing drum and bass work here. Murph is one of the best rock drummers ever. He's not about flashy chops, but his insistent beats and crazy fills give this music life.
Anyone rock/grunge/alternative/whatever fan who missed out on Dinosaur really needs to own You're Living All Over Me and Bug.

This record has more pure power than any other album ever, I really think. Sonic Youth is my favorite band, but I think You're Living All Over Me exceeds anything they've ever done. Daydream Nation, Doolittle, and Double Nickels on the Dime are incredible, but this album is the absolute apex of 80's rock music.
The album starts with a quick drum fill and smacks you upside the head with a blast of noise. Is that Lee Ranaldo screaming in the background? He gets credit for vocals on this song.
The most perplexing thing about this record is that its so noisy and powerful and has such soft melodies all the way through. The combination works better for Dinosaur Jr. than it ever did for Sonic Youth or Pavement.

If you liked their self-titled debut, you're going to love You're Living All Over Me. Unlike their first record where each song wore its inspiration on its proverbial sleeve, Dinosaur Jr.'s sophomore album blends well their love of hardcore punk, Neil Young & Crazy Horse-style garage rock, Black Sabbath-esque heavy metal riffs, twangy folk/country-rock, and goth-style moodiness. During this time, the band would often drive to New York City for shows--many times in front of such luminaries as Sonic Youth--so it's no surprise that they recorded this album in New York with Sonic Youth's engineer Wharton Tiers. What was shocking, though, was J's decision to release the album on Greg Ginn's record label SST as opposed to Homestead Records, which crushed J's college friend Gerard Cosloy and was followed by J relocating to New York.

As a whole, You're Living All Over Me is a more cohesive album than the band's debut. Although the hardcore punk influences were noticeably more muted than on Dinosaur, the overall sound was much more powerful, with the instruments often recorded very loud and with considerable amounts of distortion. While J's guitar, alternating between Black Sabbath-like riffs, squalling solos, dissonant noise-rock and occasional quiet passages, was the main attraction, Lou's bass, melodic, highly distorted and often playing thick two-note chords, competed for attention. Meanwhile, Murph played the drum parts composed by J in a very heavy and powerful fashion, resulting in a unique version of the standard power trio format. J did most of the lead singing, using a detached drawl that presented a contrast with the extreme music. The songs were highly melodic albeit with odd song structures that avoided the typical verse-chorus-verse patterns of most rock and pop songs.

The 80's was a period of continued growth and expansion for rock, it was possibly one of the last true creative times save for a few flashes of brilliance in the 90's, of the many great bands to crop up from that period (and let's face it, we'd be here for god knows how long naming them) dinosaur jr was one of the true greats. J Mascis and Lou Barlow formed Dinosaur, Sounding nothing quite like many of their SST contemporaries, Dinosaur Jr blended elements of thrash, excessive feedback, pop harmonies and catchy melodies. No other band up to this point had a front man quite like Mascis; who sounds relaxed, detached, even lazy, his vocal delivery has gone on to inspire countless other musicians, the most famous being Kurt Cobain. This is one of those rare records that from front to back is literally great, there isn't one ounce of filler nor is there a second wasted, every song on this record is solid, rocks and is catchy. The album kicks off with "Little Furry Things," which starts off in a wash of feedback and shrieking then settling into a rather catchy tune dealing with, yes, rabbits. Highlights include: the lung, raisans, poledo, and my personal favorite, in a jar. In a jar is one of those classic soured relationship tunes drawing comparisons to being kept as a pet in a jar next to a bed. The album closes with some interesting Barlow compositions, foreshadowing his next project, Sebadoh, another fine band. The expanded edition includes a killer rendition of The Cure song, "just like heaven." Robert Smith himself has stated in interviews that after hearing this, the band has since played the song live the way dinosaur jr. has here. Highly recommended for new comers to the band.
