Clearly one of my incipient favorite albums (actually it was on the top of my fictive list for many years) Recently, i haven't revisited my thoughts very much, but for sure it will always have a special place in my mind. When i first heard it it blown my mind. It was the most radical album i ever heard at that time, but time chages things... In my opinion a really good record and Nirvana's best, but it's a little bit too much to say it's the best record ever (by the way, i don't think such thing exists... there is no best record ever, it's just YOUR favorite record...that's all)

Just a few tracks were remastered. I think just Pennyroyal Tea, H-S Box and dumb. And Albini's original production is available on 12"

i knew someone was going to say that.

albini RECORDED the album, that means he made the sounds and captured them on tape (that's what the production credit usually mean), scott litt MIXED those songs and then got mastered. yes, the mastering was smoothed out, and i did mean albini's PRODUCTION, the way he recorded the guitars, the bass and the drums.

contrary to popular belief, i love the production, one of albini's best...besides, the remixing and remastering was just in a couple of songs, not on the whole album.

I've never taken 'Rape Me' to be a literal song about rape. Especially considering the sarcastic/dark sense of humor and use of metaphor that goes through most of his songs. And I've always found it funny when they do happy sad songs or sad happy songs also... oh well, whatever, nevermind.

It's a shame that Nirvana is 'to blame' for lame false-depressed emo bands and Nickelbacks out there... the ones who likes all the pretty songs, and they like to sing along, like to shoot their guns. But they know not what it means.

Albini has distanced himself from that album saying thay made wholesale changes to the mix, thereby altering each and every song from what he recorded.

Scott Litt just remixed Heart Shaped Box and All Apologies.

But I'd also read that they squashed the sound of the whole album at the mastering stage, to make it more radio friendly. It was remastered with extra compression and EQ, and whatnot.

i like it better than the bob rock-like production of nevermind by lightyears. if i wanted to hear something that glossy, i rather listen to the fucking cre's dr. feelgood (and that's not a very good album either).

Am I the only one who thinks the hidden song on Nevermind is probably the single greatest part of that album?

This album is by far the best Nirvana album. the rest can't even compare. But where the hell is the bass on this record? That always bothered me. Krist is my fav part of Nirvana.

Im no huge fan of Nirvana apart from In Utero which i have alot of time for, i remember seeing Thurston Moore on one of the various documentaries saying he didnt think they would have been the massive thing they were if it wasnt for Kurts voice, which is pretty fantastic even if you dont like the songs.

endless nameless is a gem!

in utero has nothing to do with the 21st century. the blueprint for that was carved in stone before that! how can in utero be more influencial than smells like teen spirit in the bigger picture? maybe its my age, i was 14 when i hard nirvana first, i was 19 when in utero came out. i was into sonic youth before i heard nirvana. nevermind bored me to a point but it was like all the people who hated my music now loved my music and wanted me to tape dinosaur albums over their motley crue tapes..... fuck that sheep shit! if an album gives you goosepimples may they be for the right reason, not a fashion statement or a NEW WAVE.......... in utero gave me the pimples because of scentless apprentice and his scream in tha song....... in utero is a classic album of the 20th century, a bookend to a too short career and more importantly a too short life. it was an attempt to see who would be left on board... by the way, many people wanted me to tape motley crue albums over their dinosaur albums a few years lter... i laughed, i pointed and laughed!

for the record... nevermind is an iconic album, it has many wonderful tunes
in utero is a brash horrible album which saved me from disliking an exciting band and to fal in love with them again....
bleach is poor bar 3 or 4 songs, sorry adam but i have to disagree with you, bleach is a poor album........

the rest i dont count as albums proper but side 2 of incesticide (tracks 7 to end for the kidz) is amazing........ aneurysm..... the best nirvana song?????

anyway, im off to my knowitall corner and read my paul gambaccini book on how to be hated by people who think thy know music.........





ill get my coat....i mean anorak!
