Nevermind was perfect, this is better.,
This review is from: In Utero (Audio CD)
Nevermind was an amazing and truely incredible album but it presents you with an enormous problem, how do you follow it?
Pink Floyd followed Dark Side Of The Moon (an equally revolutionary album as nevermind) with a good but not brilliant album, Wish You Were Here. I expected In Utero to be the same. I was totally wrong.
In Utero was an attempt to shed the pop audience that found ...Teen spirit fun but were never true fans. I'm suprised it worked. This album is truely incredible. There are some screamy moments on the album like Scentless Apprentice and Milk It but unlike modern Nu-Metal, they actually work very well and make very listenable to songs.
But the thing about this album is that it really showcases Kurt Cobain's vocal skills like had never been done before.
Heart Shaped Box and Frances Farmer are very good lyrically and vocally they are just phenomenal. The 'Hey, wait, I got a new compliant' in Heart Shaped Box just blue me away as did the 'She'll come back as fire, to burn all the liars,
and leave a blanket of ash on the ground' in Frances Farmer. This album prooves that Kurt Cobain was one of the very best singers of all time.
Then we come to All Apologies which goes beyond perfect. It's a song that gets sadder everytime you hear it and the riff is one of the best i've ever heard. All in all is all we are.
Get Nevermind first to get into nirvana and then buy this, you will be amazed, believe me.
