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.

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

Limited 180gm vinyl pressing of this classic 1991 album from Kurt Cobain and the boys. Nevermind became a surprise success in late 1991, largely due to the popularity of its first single, "Smells Like Teen Spirit". By January 1992, it had replaced Michael Jackson's album Dangerous at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album also produced three other successful singles: "Come as You Are", "Lithium", and "In Bloom". The Recording Industry Association of America has certified the album Diamond (over 10 million copies shipped), and the album has sold over 30 million copies worldwide. Nevermind was responsible for bringing Alternative Rock to a large mainstream audience, and has been ranked highly on lists of the greatest albums of all time by publications such as Rolling Stone and Time.

"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!

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.

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.

All through time there have been bands that have influenced certain groups of people so much that they become voices of a generation. Nirvana is one of these bands. There is no point in any of you old rockers out there trying to deny it. Nirvana didn't do anything new, but what they did do was done in such a way that they made a whole generation of bored teenagers want to start a band and do it for themselves. For Nirvana, it was all about the timing. If i heard Nevermind now i would think "Yup, that is pretty heavy, but at the same time, pretty cool" but when i heard it when i was 14 years old i just thought "That is the most amazing, cool, angry, fingers up to society thing i have ever heard". It was like hearing my mums Beatles records being played with attitude, and this was something i could totally identify with at the time. The first song i ever heard was "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and i only heard the chorus first time. It blew me away so i went out and bought the single. Back in these days, buying a single or album was the most exciting thing in the world because you just couldn't wait to hear what you had just bought. I remember rushing home and putting single on. What i heard truly blew me away and i had to play it again about 10 times to take it all in. It was the verses i couldn't understand. I was supposed to be into all things angry and heavy at the time yet i totally loved the quite parts of the song as much as the heavy chorus. For me, and i'll bet for millions of other young teenagers at that time, hearing that one song was enough for me to go and buy every Nirvana record i could find, and every time having that weird sense of anticipation before you could get the record to a record player and finally hear another Nirvana masterpiece.Read more ›
