"Kurt = God. His greatest work. Raw, powerful, emotional and haunting, a creation to touch the soul"
Vitalogy

"The strange third album but full of really amazing songs. Betterman and Nothingman are 2 of the most beautiful pieces of music you will ever hear."
Suicide Pact-You First

"Heavy F***ing Metal, with a twist of lemon!"
Doolittle

"Chuck invented alternative and this is his and the Pixies best record. If only Gigantic was on here it would be perfection itself."
The Colour and the Shape

"Out of the shadow of the drum kit steps forward a song writing hero to save us from crap music, arise Sir David of Grohl master of the riff"
Superunknown

"Dark, brooding, heavy and bloody brilliant"
Pinkerton

"Weezer's best album. Rivers went slightly mad after it was made, i think he was mad when he made it. Heavier, rawer and darker than their other records."
Live Through This

"Some say Kurt wrote it, others Courtney. Whoever was the architect this is a fantastic, poignant collection of songs. From the rocking 'Violet' to the wistful 'Doll Parts' superb"
Temple Of The Dog

"'Look Dad a super group!' Soundgarden and Pearl Jam join forces and create a very 70s, Zepplinish sounding racket. 'Hunger Strike' is the stand out track"
March To Fuzz

"Most compilation albums suck, but this doesn't. Then again it is by Mudhoney!"
Bleach

"Fuzzy, Mudhoney-esque and grinding this is a good start from a band that would become great. Even if it was rubbish 'About a Girl' would make it essential."
Bug [VINYL]

"The Grunge Jimi Hendrix produces his best work of the 90s on a slice of lo-fi, laidback, grungy brilliance. The true essence of slacker"
Dog In The Sand
Dog In The Sand
"The Pixies are dead and Frank's career was in terminal decline, therefore this emotive collection of country influenced stripped down rock songs came as a big surprise. Nice one Chuck!"

"What do you do when your first album sold over 10 million?... release an even better one as your second record!"
Troublegum

"Take equal parts pop, punk, goth and metal mix  and you get this mid-90s nugget of alternative excellence."

"NY cool, long before the Strokes."

"Cathartic, that's all that needs saying."

"British alternative rock - songs about crap flats, crap TV and hangovers but with great tunes, melodies and great big sod off riffs."
More Light

"Another class record from another fallen man of alternative rock. Returns to form don't get much better than this (except Dog in the Sand)"
TEN (+ 3 Bonus Tracks)

"A fantastic record that sounds like Led Zepplin jammin with the Who with Neil Young producing... or something like that!"
Eve 6

"Strange little late 90s/ early 2000 band but excellent songs in a laid back, jangling punky way. Warning: the songs will stay in your head all day"

"Modern alternative rock classic, the band to watch out for in the next 10 years"
Infernal Love

"A very gothic tasting piece of alternative pie. Therapy? were never ones to do the same thing twice"
Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
"The disjointed guitar of Santiago, the howl of Black Francis and the beauty of Kim Deal. The template for  the alternative rock that followed"
Metallica

"Not alternative but still bloody good"
