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.

In the late 1980s Nirvana established itself as part of the Seattle grunge scene, releasing first album Bleach for the independent record label Sub Pop in 1989. ... Read more in Amazon's Nirvana Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

One of the defining moments of the 1990s, despite happening at the start of the decade. The guitars start jittering, then "BOOMA-ABOOMA-ABOOMA-ABOOM!", the drums kick in and grunge splatters itself all over a generation of MTV viewers. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" will surely always speak to alienated teenagers, while giving them something to thrash around their rooms to, kicking the whole thing off as it means to go on. "Come As You Are" is dark and twisted, while "Lithium" and "In Bloom" show Kurt Cobain's often overlooked sense of humour, and "Stay Away" highlights the best way to shred your vocal chords. It's nigh-impossible not to love this album, and it will remain Nirvana's most affectionately remembered work. It's just a shame that a misplaced sense of "selling out" (stupid term if ever there was one) led to such an internal rejection of "...Teen Spirit". A work of genius, no question. --Emma Johnston

2.0 out of 5 stars A deluxe edition that's worse than the original 27 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
"Deluxe", "Remastered"! That sounds good! Yes?

Well, no.

The simple fact is that the mastering on the original version of Nevermind was excellent. Howie Weinberg was tasked with making the original sound as good as he possibly could. And the result was a clear, lively, dynamic and very punchy record indeed!

Then this came along. Unfortunately, the music industry no longer cares in any way about quality - really, they don't! So for this supposedly "Deluxe" version, they simply asked the mastering engineer to forget all about sound quality and just make the album sound artificially loud. And he's done that! All of the dynamics are gone, clear passages are replaced with digital distortion, the drums sound flatter and the whole album has a flat, lifeless and fatiguing sound to it.

And there we have it. A "Deluxe" version of this album which sounds 10 times worse than the original.

Sure the bonus tracks are a nice addition, but they aren't anything which hasn't been floating around on bootlegs for the last 15+ years. So, my advice is to keep hold of your superior "original" copy - A good memorial for those times when the music industry used to care about the quality of the stuff they release. Don't touch this shoddy re-release with a barge pole!

----

As a quick update to this for all those who are curious about the sheer number of positive reviews here (or why I seem to have reviewed it twice), Amazon have pulled all the reviews from the original album, the "remastered" album and the "deluxe" album (remastered plus bonus material) all together into one group. Hence these reviews here also now cover the original release as well. Personally, I'd give the original 5 stars as well. It's this shoddy "remaster" that only deserves 2. If you haven't heard this album yet, track down a copy of the original. You won't regret it!

Let me get one thing straight: Nevermind is a fantastic and incredibly influential album. However with this version, there's one major problem.

The simple fact is that the mastering on the original version of Nevermind was excellent. Howie Weinberg was tasked with making the original sound as good as he possibly could. And the result was a clear, lively, dynamic and very punchy record indeed!

Then this came along. Unfortunately, the music industry no longer cares in any way about quality - really, they don't! So for this supposedly "Remastered" version, they simply asked the mastering engineer to forget all about sound quality and just make the album sound artificially loud. And he's done that! All of the dynamics are gone, clear passages are replaced with digital distortion, the drums sound flatter and the whole sound has a flat, lifeless and fatiguing sound to it.

And there we have it. A "Remastered" version of this album which sounds 10 times worse than the original.

So, my advice is to keep hold of your superior "original" copy - A good memorial for those times when the music industry used to care about the quality of the stuff they release. Don't touch this shoddy re-release with a barge pole, the quality of it is rubbish!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nirvana - Nevermind 20 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you don't already have this album in your CD collection, I suggest that you purchase it now, because it's an absolute must-have.
It may be over a decade since the band was abruptly halted by singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain's suicide, and yet this is still one of those albums that keeps selling and keeps selling.
Thousands of teens every year get their first taste of Nirvana. More addictive than any narcotic, and there's no horrible come-down. You can just keep listening and keep listening, and the high just gets better and better.
Smells Like Teen Spirit is the band's most famous song, without a doubt. The raw guitar into, the moment where the drums cascade into action and the fuzz peddle is pushed hard to the floor...it's the soundtrack to so many great experiences.
Come As You Are is arguably one of the best songs they ever recorded. With Krist's watery bass into, and the infectious yet simple vocal arragement is truly magic.
But skip straight to number four if you want something to headbang, jump around, scream your lungs out to! Breed is the epitome of all things loud and amazing.
Then Drain You, Lounge Act and On A Plain are the best of the rest, although it broke my heart to have to choose my favourites. This whole album is astoundingly good, and you should buy it immediately, and play it as loud as your stereo will allow you.

1.0 out of 5 stars JUST SAY NO!!!!! 5 Dec 2011

Terrible...just terrible..
What has happened to quality? This is a pile of garbage, loud and flat
They have already destroyed Jesus Lizards Goat with their so called superior mastering..
Keep hold to your original copies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not quite a box set, but "Nevermind". 4 May 2012
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Nirvana always struck me as the type of band to be heard either live or on vinyl. So the CDs are pretty good, but they don't come close to this.... this is ferocious. The packaging isn't what I expected (it ISN'T a box set), but it's still pretty neat.... like I said, never mind ! Treat yourself to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars There are no words !! 5 July 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's all in the title. This album changed my musical world for only the better at a time when i was a musical outcast and having no particular preference of genre i was played this album and i never looked back. Nirvana are now the most important band in my life and even though has expanded from the one copy of nevermind the 12 track album to now over 2000 songs I only ever get a feeling while listening to the angst driven rough voice, guitar chords, unbelieveable drumming and exellent bass of Nirvana. Come on there has never been and never will be a better album in exsistance.
