Editors’ Notes

All right; so the mix is a little muddy and wafer-thin at times, despite a hefty round of remastering from Merge Records. Not that you'll notice after a few minutes of dodging J Mascis' jigsaw chords — balls of feedback and fuzz that unfurl into spastic solos and manic melodies at the most inappropriate, unexpected moments. Simply put, You're Living All Over Me is the album that made Mascis one of indie rock's greatest guitar gods right alongside Thurston Moore and, well, Thurston Moore. (Appropriately enough, Sonic Youth became a major supporter of Dinosaur Jr. after hearing this album.) That's the good news. The bad news is it signaled the beginning of the end for bassist Lou Barlow, who was barely talking to Mascis by the time their next album (Bug) came out. The pair's teeth-gnashing tension can certainly be heard in the push and the pull of noise-pop freakouts like "Little Fury Things" and "Sludgefeast." It's also hard not to view "Poledo"— an uneasy, bedroom-based mess of knob twiddling and ukulele leads — as the song that sparked Sebadoh, Barlow's next band. Eh, whatever. Internal issues aside, this album's still one of the greatest relics from a time when 'college rock' actually meant something.

Customer Reviews

Music for Geniuses

This album means many things to many people. I've heard them called sad songs, maybe due to J Mascis' doleful delivery. Personally, I think these are some of the happiest and most beautiful songs to come out of American Rock and Roll. This is an album that will change your taste in music.

A serious Sludgefest Of A Record=Essential Listening

Ther are actual songs under these layers and layers of guitar sludge and they are incredible one stoo.From the beginning fury of "Little Furry Things", to the tidal wave of riffs on "Sludgefest", lava oozing hooks on "The Lung", "Raisons" and In A Jar", and freight train guitar licks on "Lose" prove "You're Living All Over Me" to be an essential listen for anyone who wants to discover the origins of College Rock or Grunge. iTune customer's also recieve the chance to hear Dino Jr.'s mighty version of the Cure's "Just Like Heaven" which was not on the original LP.


This album and its follow-up, "Bug," are really of a piece. Of the two, this one feels much more like an indie release. The song structures are very idiosyncratic, sometimes changing key and tempo unexpectedly. The production values are clearly pretty low (even if we exclude the concluding lo-fi tape collage "Poledo") and the singing is usually off-key and sometimes incomprehensible. Once you've listened to it a couple times, though, and get used to these quirks, you recognize songs like "Little Fury Things" and "SludgeFeast" for the genius they are.

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Dinosaur Jr. were largely responsible for returning lead guitar to indie rock and, along with their peers the Pixies, they injected late-'80s alternative rock with monumental levels of pure guitar noise. As the group's career progressed, it turned into a vehicle for J Mascis' songwriting and playing, which had the ultimate result of turning Dinosaur's albums into largely similar affairs. Over time, Mascis shed his hardcore punk roots and revealed himself to be a disciple of Neil Young, crafting simple...
