4.0 out of 5 stars Nirvana's "Inventive-side"...sorry for the pun
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nirvana's "Inventive-side"...sorry for the pun, 8 Nov 2002

This review is from: Incesticide (Audio CD)
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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars if you like nirvana you'll love this, 4 Nov 2000
This review is from: Incesticide (Audio CD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Underrated, 9 April 2003
By 
This review is from: Incesticide (Audio CD)
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. Tracks 9-14 are the highlights of the album for me - they are all Bleach out-takes, although the majority come from their first demo on the 23-1-88. 'Beeswax' and 'Mexican Seafood' are wonderfully quirky, although 'Mexican Seafood' is more accessible to the casual fan. 'Downer' is very dissapointing, although it's rather interesting - it's one of the first songs Kurt ever wrote and it shows how he was heavily influenced by political punk bands. 'Hairspray Queen' is wonderfully new-wave - unlike anything Nirvana has done before or since. 'Big Long Now' is a wonderfully sombre piece, featuring perfect screams - its the kind of song your mother will probably hate. 'Incesticide' finishes off with the afermentioned 'Aneurysm' and closes another chapter of Nirvana. This is a highly recommended compilation that is invaluable for anyone wanting to know about the evolution of Nirvana

3.0 out of 5 stars Generic Grunge with a Few Gems, 14 May 2014
By 
This review is from: Incesticide (Audio CD)
Insecticide may not the first album that pops into your head when thinking of Nirvana... and there is a good reason for that.

With the exception of a few standout tracks (Hairspray Queen), the album does not bring anything distinctive to the table, particularly up against with some of their other albums (Nevermind, In Utero). Whilst collectors of grunge may want this album for some of the sessions they recorded for John Peel's legendary radio show, there is not much on offer for those that want to explore the phenomenon that was grunge rock.

Whilst Insecticide is not terrible, the album is just generic grunge with a few gems thrown in for the die-hard fans of Nirvana to enjoy.

an absolute gem of american alternative 90's rock, generally raw and unpolished- and all the better for it. stand out tracks?..'aneurysm' 'big long now' and 'dive' the emotional rawness and pure rock genius will just blow you away, no wonder Cobain's legacy lives on to the extent that it does. brilliant.
