Nirvana "Nevermind" - Great Album!

Was reminded after seeing the "classic albums" Nirvana on Netflix, why this album turned the music industry upside down...

I re-listened to it last night and loved it, Primal, angst ridden in a real way, Live they were energetic, brash and unstable.... Fender Duosonics, Jaguars, loud amps set to stun!

Kurt Cobain had a real gift for writing songs too. He may have many detractors, but he unknowingly and singlehandedly changed the musical landscape of his time. Great Album!

Yep. It is a very good album, Butch Vig really got the best out of them too, what is often under appreciated IMO is how tight a rhythm section Dave and Krist are. In the classic albums Vig points out how tight it was on In Bloom, such a great grove.

Yeah, really loved Butch Vig's take on the sessions.... can't believe it's been 20 years! Yikes..

Right up there with hendrix, morrison, and all the other classics imo. (not referring to the 27 club myth, just musically speaking)

Great Album, great band. The great thing is that ALL of their albums were superb.

I agree!

When I talk Nirvana up to my bandmates they keep insisting that other Seattle bands were around first, but that Nirvana just happened to 'break' nationally first. Well, maybe so, I don't know, and I really don't care, because to me Nirvana is pretty much the only grunge band that still sounds relevant today (with the POSSIBLE exception of Pearl Jam's "Ten"), IMO YMMV.....

I enjoyed it initially, but I quickly got sick of that album, that band, and alternative music in general.

I still like the tune Come As You Are. Not sure why but I still like that one.

I love every song on this album. I dig that I can listen start to finish without feeling the want to skip a tune.

Peace,

One of my favorite albums of all time. Still listen to it once in a while. Drain You and Lounge Act are two of my favorites.

A favorite of mine. 90s Seattle-based bands may be my favorite singular music scene.

the album spoke to me being the same age as Cobain and suffering the disillusion with life that comes from not be satisfied with the options being offered......20 years of schooling and the put ya on the day shift,working 9 to 5, it that all there is?
No solos but tight rhythm guitar and lyrics that were more poetic or with some depth.....more so than cherry pie wanted dead or alive.

Almost every song on it had a solo, from what I remember. Melodic solos (mostly embellishing on the vocal melody) in a more old school vein than the "look what I can do!" hair-band solos, but solos, none the less. Not that it's important...;)

I relented, as the saying goes "a good song is a good song" and in addition "a great album is a great album"!
