In Utero is NOT a dirge, it is more noise (Radio Friendly Unit Shifter) and feedback (Francis Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle, Serve of the Servants, tourette's) than Nevermind or Bleach were. In that regard, you'd think the Sonic Youth community would love it even more!! I think In Utero better reflects a Nirvana live stageshow than Nevermind does..
