Now disc 2, a brand new mix of the album done by Steve Albini himself, let me tell you, it is AMAZING!!!! After owning this for 1 day, I have listened to this mix multiple times and it has become the definitive version of In Utero for me, things are different on this mix, alternative guitar solo's, alternative lead guitars, the mix itself is raw and edgy but thicker with more body, it has its feet planted in the DC Alternative Music Scene, one problem I always had with In Utero was that it didn't seem know if it was either alternative or mainstream while trying to be both, this mix sorts that out 100%, it's personality has been defined as Alternative Punk and its a glorious thing to listen too.
Now, I didn't give a full 5 stars for one reason, the extra tracks from disc 1 and 2 should be swapped, then it would be perfect.
The Steve Albini 2013 mix is In Utero as it always should have been.
Like many of my generation, Nirvana were more than just a rock n' roll band. Nevermind, and the band that made it, were the gateway into a whole world of underground music and art that people like me still are still burrowing into two decades later. At the time, In Utero was met with a degree of bafflement, and to some extent derision from the press and the legions of fans the band had accumulated in the preceding two years. The band, and particularly Kurt, had made it clear that they were deeply uncomfortable with the level of fame thrust upon them and this was their attempt to wrest back control from the big machine. Ironically, Kurt's pop instincts were never sharper than on this record; look beyond the raw production, the feral performances and the layers of feedback and you'll find a record with better songs and vastly more emotional weight than it's more famous predecessor. If Kurt had lived, they probably would never have made another record - I mean, where can you go from here?
This record is the best representation of Nirvana's "classic" line up. Dave Grohl, who on Nevermind was actually playing the parts written by former drummer Chad Channing, here shows us what he's made of - driving the songs forward with his Led-Zep-goes-hardcore beats that seem to spur the band on to another level of hugeness. Plenty had happened in Cobain's life in the preceding two years, and he had no shortage of things to write about - marriage, his family, drugs, childbirth, selling out, sociopathic perfumers... It's a testament to how good Nirvana were as a band that despite the dark subject matter and hair-raising performances that what resulted was a record that stands up against any other album from any other decade.Read more ›
Although many speculate about the circumstances surrounding Cobain's death, it is difficult to believe when listening to this album that Cobain was not a man nearing his end; a man whose inner demons were getting the better of him. The greatest tradegy was that such incredible songs had to be the product of one man's pain and anguish.
An album to be listened to with a heavy heart, but certainly not one to be missed.
And this is nirvana, in the same way that mellon collie as smashing pumpkins and the fragile is nin.
Its certainly not easier to listen to than nevermind, but surely that says it all.
this is nirvana at their peak, incredible vocal harmonies, full and rich guitar sounds and varied...
Classic doesn't really cover it.. nirvana were more than just a band in the early nineties and in utero is more than an album.
The 2013 mix of the album works wonderfully with the guitars sounding more edgy and Kurt's vocals made clearer giving a whole new take on a classic album. A remastered version of the album is also there but to me, this doesn't sound much different from the original, it's the 2013 mix that you need to hear! Also included are the b-sides (also given a new 2013 mix) and some original 1993 mixes from when the album was originally released. The demo's and instrumentals are also superb offering great sound quality and further insight to how great this band really were! There is also a demo of 'Marigold' which is the earliest know recording of Dave Grohl so you even get a little piece of history too!
The dvd is also superb. A full concert from December 13th 1993 in Seattle. The venue isn't big but in my opinion it's Nirvana at their best. I honestly don't think you will find any footage of Nirvana as raw as this. Kurt is at his best from start to finish and the introduction of 2nd guitarist, Pat Smear, shows the direction in which the band were going. The dvd also contains rehearsal footage for the gig and various other live performances totalling over 2 hours of footage! If that wasn't enough, you also get the full concert on disc 3 as well as a hardback book with rare pictures and all of Kurt's handwritten lyrics to the album.
All in all, it's a fantastic package and worth every penny. If you're a fan then you must have this in your collection! It further makes you realise the talent of Kurt Cobain and how much of a loss he is to the music industry.
