'Neil Young jamming with Black Flag' as someone once described this album to me. Its been in my collection now for more than 10 years, and gets a play now and then. It still sounds like the first time I ever played it - unique, beautiful, haunting, insane, inspired and just downright out-of-this-world amazing. Dinosaur Jr have a pretty cool body of work, and J Mascis gets a mention now and then as a big influence on a lot of bands, but no guitar trio ever touched the heights of pure melodic noise on this album. The definitive Dinosaur line-up and sound. Listen to 'Raisans' at full blast - its the best guitar break ever recorded and still leaves me speechless every time.

Ok so I feel terrible for the attention-seeking, one-star review. This is a great album, no doubt. Amazing even.

But this 2005 remaster from Merge records is another victim of the 'Loudness Wars'. The 1987 CD release of this album on SST has lots of dynamics, quiet bits are quiet, loud bits are loud (how it should be).

With this version, everything is aggressively dynamically compressed (so the quiet bits are almost as loud as the loud bits). The result is harsh and nasty; a disgrace to the band and the album.

I've taken a screenshot of a track from each version in a sound-editing package so you can see what I mean: i.imgur.com/KkSUkeS.png

Please also check the Dynamic Range Database.

Please, don't waste your money on this version.

Not the out and out classic that those wax nostalgic about but a truly astonishing second album from the then Dinosaur and soon after this release the first for the band with the added Jr. Bug was the seminal step that incorporated all that went before with a beefier production and tighter songwriting, straying periodically into the slacker country-grunge that Mascis was to direct the band towards, but You're living... is the indie classic. It's rough, raw, full of heart and just very cool.

'Little Furry Things' is a classic. It draws you in immediately from the distorted waves of guitar through to the sublime chorus. They have not sounded like this ever again. 'Kracked' is slightly edgier but transforms into a tuneful thing of beauty for the last half of the track. 'Sludgefeast' is just that. It's down, low and dirty but also again very catchy. Just with these 3 tracks the band show how diverse they can be while sounding completely unique. 'The Lung' continues the angular-yet-catchy remit well. But with 'Raisins' we get an almost-single. What a completely unbeatable song. Great chorus, perfect lead. 'Tarpit' is similar to 'The Lung' but is still very good. 'In A Jar' is merely ok really as nothing of great interest happens to beat what has gone before. 'Lose' is the weakest track on the album as it is quite average and has nothing to make you want to listen again. 'Poledo' however is great. Half of the track is a very lo-fi, shoe-gazy strum and sing acoustic, and the last half is some truly creepy walls of sound. Another left-fielder from DJ. The cover of Peter Frampton's 'Show Me The Way' is excellent. It's a great song anyway but also feels right in DJ's grungey hands.

A favourite of mine but not my complete favourite.

Both a defining moment in slacker, 80s indie culture, with it's blend of hardcore punk and mumblecore lyrical sentiment, and a virtual blueprint for the Seattle grunge scene; You're Living All Over Me is one of those records that is constantly cited as 'influencial' almost over and above 'totally rocking.'

But totally rocking it is, as J Mascis and co. borrow liberally from the fundamentals of classic rock: Neil Young soloing, Byrdsian guitar jangle, Black Sabbath sludge; and filter them through the underground's lo-fi aethetic and Mascis' dyspeptic, perpetually heartbroken angst. It's a record that sonds fairly chaotic, walls of feedback and noise underscore entire songs, but it also sounds remarkably precise and constructed, with songs coalescing into a huge hook or chorus just when you think they're on the brink of falling apart.

With song titles like Sludgefeast and Tarpit, this was always going to be a dark, grimy, record. And so it is. At times the band create a thick soup of noise; waves of wah-wah, bass rumble and pounding drumming that are like being submerged in quicksand. Only a lot more fun than that sounds. But the tunes also have a remarkable melodic brightness. The hooks on Little Fury Things, Raisans and Tarpit are immense. Dino's work here has as much in common with the melodicism of bands like the Cure and R.E.M. as noise merchants like Big Black and Sonic Youth.

This album is also particularly loved, I think, because it one of the most distinctly Lou-influenced Dinosaur records, particularly in the case of the proto-Sebadoh Poledo. To be honest, I was at least as happy when J was running the band as a dictatorship, but Barlow's imprint is certainly distinctive here. In any case, this is an awesome record.
