Dinosaur Jr

Dinosaur Jr. | You're Living All Over Me

Dinosaur Jr.
You're Living All Over Me
(Sst Records)
1990

Back in 1987, they were just "Dinosaur," but they got sued by The Dinosaurs in the 1990s, so they had to change their name to Dinosaur Jr. This band, fronted by J. Mascis (chief maniac Guitarrorist) and backed up by the man with the plan, Lou Barlow (who later went on to front Sebadoh), really helped define the boundaries of indie rock in the late 1980s and the first half of the 1990s. This is not what you youngsters call "emo." This is pre-Nirvana grunge. This is blistering heavy metal guitar solos, sludge, rocks, moss, and pondwater. This is J. Mascis's tortured voice calling out to you from across the divide of nearly 20 years, begging you to come back to see the world the way it was before Nevermind. The music on You're Living All Over Me has aged well; 16 years after its release, it doesn't sound at all tired.

Beautiful songs on this album include "Sludgefeast," "The Lung," "Raisans," and of course, the lovely Peter Framton cover, "Show Me the Way." God damn, this stuff rocks.

(Also, for bonus J. Mascis points, seek out "Little Ethnic Song," which is decidedly NOT on the album reviewed here. You will be rewarded handsomely for your effort.)
