You’re Living All Over Me
Dinosaur Jr.
“A blitzkrieg fusion of hardcore punk, Sonic Youth-style noise freak-outs, heavy metal, and melodic hard rock in the vein of Neil Young, You’re Living All Over Me was a turning point in American underground rock & roll. With its thin, unbalanced mix, the album sounds positively menacing and edgy – Lou Barlow’s bass barrels forward over Murph’s clanking drums, with J Mascis’ guitar twisting pummeling riffs and careening, occasionally atonal solos. It established guitar heroics as a part of indie rock, bringing the noise of Sonic Youth into more conventional song structures” (Erlewine).

“Also, Mascis’ laconic, self-absorbed whine was a distinct departure from the furious post-hardcore rants, or the mumbling Michael Stipe imitations, that dominated indie rock. While the songwriting is occasionally uneven, the best moments of You’re Living All Over MeLittle Fury Things, Raisans, In a Jar, and Barlow’s proto-Sebadoh Poledo – retain their power, and it's possible to hear the record’s influence throughout alternative rock” (Erlewine).
