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.
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.Read more ›
Any fan, passing fan, or other will love songs 1 to 8, there just simply good punk-pop, or grunge (hate the word) tunes. Beeswax, Downer, Mexican Seafood, Hairspray Queen are weird songs which took me a while to get used to. There very strange songs which don't involve much melody but do involve the patented Cobain Screach and mumble, with weird guitars to back that up. Aero Zepplin, Big Long Now and Aneurysm put you back on track with tipical Nirvana songs.
Overall this album is Good. But some songs do let it down.
I would recommend this to a Die hard Nirvana Fan and anyone who loves most of there stuff on Bleach and In Utero. If you are planning on letting this be your first Nirvana purchase or even second DON'T, there are other albums out there that are far better.
Anyway, the album is, as a rule, good. Aneurysm is far and away the best track, closely followed by Dive and Sliver. Beeswax is terrible, as is Mexican Seafood, but Hairspray Queen is an overlooked masterpiece. Big Long Now gives us our standard Nirvana depression, and Aero Zeppelin the rifftastic air guitar track.
If you a Nirvana fan, by all means buy it. If you are just a curious onlooker, don't.
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
