I am actually starting to lean towards Incesticide.
But In Utero is mighty fine.

I wouldn't go so far as to say In Utero is the greatest rock album. In fact, probably not even near the top. Ha. Best Nirvana album, though.

It might be that I was so massively into them at the time that they were still kicking around, but I love both Nevermind and In Utero in equal measure. Bleach is a good album too, but i prefer those too. They also had to be witnessed playing Nevermind live, if you really think that those songs aren't up to scratch.

Best Nirvana album, in my opinion. Love it.
Best rock album of all time though? Nah.

When this first came out I was consumed with trying to perfect the drums to Scentless Apprentice. It's a lot harder to pull off than you'd think.

Dave will always be one of my drummer heroes.

boring. there's a couple okay songs, but it sounds like they're trying so hard to appeal to their early fans AND their nevermind fans -- and it doesn't work. i really dig the drums/drum sound, of course, but as a whole, the album is boring and .. i mean, rape me, heart-shaped box, pennyroyal tea, tourettes, and all apologies are amongst the worst songs nirvana wrote, so..

bleach is a really good album, and "from the muddy banks of the wishkah" is actually really good, but i think incesticide has thier best songs.

Probably my favourite and most-listened-to album of all time. I Still have it on tape, which is starting to die from constantly repeated plays in my walkman, and sometimes if I don't change the tape, it'll be the only album I hear for weeks .

Definitely my favourite album, but that's probably also because it's nearly impossible to choose a single favourite Sonic Youth product...

And as a second-place Nirvana album, I'd pick unplugged.

I think a lot of the most hardcore Nirvana fans are probably people who first heard them in grade school, and it was their first taste of alternative or heavy/distorted music with yelling and whatnot. I know that was the case for me.

One of my friends had only listened to classical music and oldies before he started listening to Nirvana in highschool. Now he has every Nirvana release, listens to and creates post-punk/new wave/noise rock whatever-music...

It's a great gateway album into new and interesting things. And if you ever read any books about Nirvana and whatnot, it pulls you out of the mainstream world into a crazy world of magical and adventurous artists you've never heard of before, and gives kids the idea that even THEY can create music that could become popular.

Yay Nirvana!

alll very very true.

I first heard Bleach in 11th grade, and nevermind shortly thereafter. Loved them both. wore out the cassettes, but they were never relevatory to me, having already been listening to sonic youth and jane's addiction and shit.

I have never been able to sit through al of in utero. I find the production terrible, and a wack attempt to sound like smashing pumpkins' records. (sound quality wise) I know there is something floating on the internet with steve albini's original recording of In Utero, but I have never heard it. It may change my mind somewhat.

I liken Nirvana to JD salinger. Both wrote self-tortured anthems for angst-ridden painfully over-emotional teenagers. I just got sick of both their whining.

in utero is to 90s music what Paranoid was to 70s music.

Yes that is how it was for me when I listened to Nirvana in the Tenth grade. It blew my mind, before I was listening to all these pop-pink bands like Green Day, Blink 182 and all that shit. When I found them, I started looking for interviews and whatnot. Finally I read books about them and discover other bands. Through interviews I first heard of Sonic Youth. Then I heard 100% and it blew me away. I agree that if you really get into nirvana you it will be a gateway to other greater bands.

good album but flawed.

rape me has to be their worst song ever. "hey guys, let's re-write smells like teen spirit but have riot grrrl lyrics over them! yeah, it's going to be a hit AND have social awareness!!!!"

i have the tape and the cd, something i can't say about the rest of nirvana's oevre (nevermind on tape, bleach and incesticide on cd-r) and definitely my most listened album of theirs. albini's production is top notch.

albini's opriginal production is NOT on In Utero. They had someone else come in and re-master everything after albini was done.
