After years of anticipation for the re-release of this seminal album (it was previously almost impossible to get hold of)I was a bit reluctant to listen to it at first. Numerous great bands have remarked on this album being one of the most inspirational records ever pressed. I always had faith in the strength of this record due to the band's following release 'Bug'. 'Bug' was a really strong record that blended the pure dissonant noise of Sonic Youth (fellow label mates at the time) with frequent moments of Pop-Rock genius. So, how did I find 'You're Living All Over Me'?
In a word, brilliant. I was not dissapointed with this record. It certainly sounds very different from anything else I've heard from Dinosaur Jr. It doesn't really have the ear friendly pop elements of 'Bug' to such an extent and it doesn't have the more commercial buzz of the later Geffen releases. The fundamental aspect of this record is its' chaotic structure blended with really articulate riffs. The album fuses many genres, notably Rock, Metal, Folk/Country, Punk.
I think the most exciting aspect of this record is the way you can notice Dinosaur Jr's influence on bands to come. The most shining example I can think of is definately implicit in the first track, the phenomenal 'Little Fury Things'. When the track begins with Mascis' ear blasting screaming and the heavy, screaching riff you don't really know what to expect. However, the song sinks into a beautiful chord progression that yells My Bloody Valentine. From this it's easy to see the effect this record had on the likes of Ride and My Bloody Valentine. It's also evident to see the influence on Kurt Cobain.

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.

'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.

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.
