Back in 1991, Nirvana were not really considered as gods of garage music, with Kurt Kobain not really making an impact on the music scene. This all changed when this amazing album came along, 12 of the best tracks you could find on one album, from trashing punk right though to more sombre affairs, Nevermind really defined who Nirvana was, and who they were going to be.
Some of their finest moments are here, from all out rock of Smells Like Teen Spirit, through to the rather more thoughtful Polly. Some great stops along the way include the rather cool In Bloom, brilliantly written by Kurt; Stay Away, with it's angry guitar riffs and cool lyrics and Something In The Way, a sort of ballad. There's also the rather singable Come As You Are, with it's excellent plucked theme.
This is a great album, and has to be part of the classic albums of all time, it's hard to describe what feelings you get from this, but it's good fun to dance to, talk to friends and even have on while doing the cleaning, that's how versatile it is. I think it's their best album, very close with In Utero not so far behind. Kurt's voice is excellent and his talent shines here, a real classic rock voice.
This is a must have, even if you don't like grunge and garage, this will appeal to you, on many levels.
