This review is from: You're Living All Over Me (Audio CD)
I was a newcomer to the Dinosaur sound but had heard good things about them and was a fan of Sonic Youth, who i was told they resembled in sound. I was blown away with this album, there are elements of sonic youth but also Neil young who J Mascis is a fan of. Seeing this album performed in its entirety last year as part of the excellent 'don't look back' series of concerts really brought it home. Opening track 'Little Fury Things' has been a constant on my cd player throughout 2005 and i'm sure will be in 2006!. So many great tracks and air guitarists will be in heaven with the awesome solos on 'Kracked' and 'Raisans'. The guitar playing of Mascis really is incredible, a master of both rhythm and solo playing. Not to be outdone, Lou barlow contributes 'Poledo' which is a bizarre listening experience and this newly remastered version includes their crazy version of the Cure's 'Just Like Heaven' changed from the sweet pop song to guitar overload. This one goes to 11!. Murph's drumming is barely controlled and everything fits together nicely. The best starting point, I went on to purchase Bug and the self titled debut which are both excellent, but not as good as this.
