Biography

Nirvana were formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, the longest-lasting being Dave Grohl, who joined the band in 1990.

Whatever you can say about Nevermind and In Utero, for me this is Nirvana's most original record. That's not to put the others down - Nevermind is a fantastically energetic and powerful album, while In Utero is by turns elegant and degenerate despite remaining about as emotional as you can get. I'm not going to talk about Bleach btw.
Anyway, Insesticide while not always easy to listen to has more passion than anything else Nirvana have done and at times Kurt's voice sounds clearer and more agonised than I've heard it elsewhere. His vocals are varied throughout, shifting through paranoid sounding mumbles, to piercing screams and aggressive grunting through to sweet tunes along the way.
Obviously a rough recording at times and not likely to remain in your cd player as much as the two major records but for raw talent, emotional fire and unusual rock inventiveness, this is a good place to come.

i have known of this cd for some time now and have only just added it to my collection of other nirvana stuff. Wow! the quality of this album took my breath away particularly tracks like Dive,Big long now,and aneurysm. These and others are timeless and further underline the genius of Kurt Cobain. This album is certainly much more worthy than being labelled a 'b sides album' and could be off putting to potential buyers Miss it at your peril.

Another great album from the rock/grunge legends.
Not the best album in my opinion, but considering Nirvana's ok stuff is a whole lot better than some bands best stuff you just cant go wrong

This is a good album, but not as good as Nirvana's other albums such as Nevermind and In Utero.. But there are some really good songs on here, it's just not 100% consistent.

OK, 'Incesticide' is hardly Nirvana's most popular album.
OK, 'Incesticide' will hardly inspire you if you're new to them.
OK, 'Incesticide' is a bit of a mish mash.
OK, 'Incesticide' doesn't contain the rarest of the Nirvana back catalogue (much of the material here had been already or has since been released on bootleg CDs).
But, 'Incesticide' is STILL a great LP that can be enjoyed by everyone, if they give it a little time. 'Dive' and 'Sliver' show how much Kurt's song writing style changed between 'Bleach' and 'Nevermind' - going from dark and bitter grunge/metal to light and furious heavy rock. 'Stain' is another great representative of that fact. Even though it is about parental resentment, a topic that should be sombre, it's played at great pace and features great, almost lennon like harmonies from Cobain. Tracks 4, 8 and 15 show another side of Kurt - how often he was dissapointed with Nirvana's music. During their 1991 tour to promote Nevermind, they performed at the Mark Goodier show in England. The band decided to re-record some of their older songs that had not come out to their liking in the studio. In some cases this worked - they played a blistering version of 'Aneurysm', (which, luckily enough for us, is included here) and a haunting, electric 'Something In The Way'. Sadly, the sped up 'Been A Son' and 'New Wave Polly' do nothing BUT dissapoint. Luckily, we are treated to some much better radio session material - in the form of the covers 'Molly's Lips', 'Son Of A Gun' and 'Turnaround', which are fantastic and the band oozes confidence - they had every right, as they had they perfect drummer - Dave had joined them in October of 1990, only a short while before these tracks were recorded.

Incesticide has some great songs like Aneurysm, Dive, Molly's Lips, Son Of A Gun, Sliver, Downer and Big Long Now, but it also has a few tracks which upon listening multiple times to, i still would opt to skip them.......I wasn't really feeling Mexican Seafood or Aero Zeppelin.

Saying this, it's still an album Nirvana fans should own as no other album contains Big Long Now, Turnaround Molly's Lips and Son Of A Gun.
For casual Nirvana fans I probably wouldn't recommend this unless you really like the aforementioned songs.
It isn't the best album by Nirvana (That would have to be In Utero....very very closely followed by Nevermind) but worth buying because of the B-sides and covers not available on any other CD's.
