Stone cold classic album. The three-track opening run on here could beat out most albums in existence. I feel like most retrospective discussion of Nirvana tends to focus on the lore of Kurt Cobain or the grunge movement that he inspired, but what gets lost is the fact that Nirvana really ROCKED. Sometimes it sneaks up on you, like on "Lithium" and "Come As You Are." Or verses will be softer followed by heavy hooks. The point is that pretty much every song on here hits hard. Even the deeper album cuts are great, no fat on here to trim. And I never knew that Nirvana was a three-piece band! That in itself always impresses me. All three do an excellent job, but special shout-out to Dave Grohl for his drumming, especially on "In Bloom." Favorite tracks: In Bloom, Lithium, Smells Like Teen Spirit, Something in the Way. Album art: Iconic. I can't imagine how many teens brought this album home from the store to absolute shock from their parents. "What kind of pervert crap is this, Lucas? You can see the baby's dink! Is that what you like, sicko? Go to your room!" I've always felt like I shouldn't look at Nevermind Baby. He's chasing a bag, and I should mind my own business. I wonder if Nevermind Baby is still alive? Has he learned about clothing yet? Maybe that's why he was chasing a dollar, so he could afford a diaper. Nevermind Baby is all alone in this open water world. 5/5

the third album I get that is currently on the top 20 of the generator. This is it people, the top tier, I mean, no one hates on Fleetwood Mac (I myself rated it 5) but Nirvana has had a lot of haters ever since they came out, so its high rate is even more impressive. Nevermind is an almost perfect album, I've been hearing it ever since it came out (I was 5 at the time) and I have always loved it. this is one for the generations.

Nirvana’s “Nevermind” is one of my favorite albums of all time. It means so much to me that it’s difficult to articulate why it‘s left such a massive impact on me over the years. “Nevermind” is a masterwork of power and emotional potency...a tremendous force to be reckoned with. “Nevermind” is possessed with a unique energy that transports me to the time in which it was released, and the excitement of that era must have been palpable. Almost 30 years after its release, “Nevermind” remains utterly vital and absolutely fantastic. Kurt Cobain had a brilliant knack for melody, and each song on this album is crafted to such perfection. The catchiness of those melodies matched with the unbridled ferocity makes for a spectacular experience. Kurt’s voice has such a unique quality to it, and he takes it to daring places throughout this album. Kurt’s guitar, Krist Novoselic’s bass, and Dave Grohl’s drums sound so heavy across “Nevermind”, and there are so many different sounds on this album that I love. Butch Vig’s production on this album is excellent, and the cover art for this album is perfect because for me, this album sounds splendidly aquatic and frequently like the color blue. I always feel so greatly energized and in awe by “Nevermind”, an album that I will continue to cherish for the rest of my life.

Just because it is the most accessible Nirvana album doesn't mean it is the weakest; not by a long shot. A tour de force of bringing the grunge movement into the mainstream purely on it's incredible songwriting and melodies, not to mention the great rhythm section between Grohl and Novoselic

“Nevermind” by Nirvana (1991) In my eighteen years as a Protestant minister, I experienced, on dozens of occasions, the responsibility/privilege/horror of that moment in funerary rituals where ‘the preacher’ stands at the head of the open casket, aiming to project empathy and comfort, and looking into the eyes of each mourner filing past and gazing upon the deceased. Some of those eyes were inconsolably sad, some were forlorn, some loving, some fearful, some resolutely formal, some unconvincingly nonchalant. But there were those occasional eyes, easy to spot, that expressed a feeling of being cast off, alienated—emoting an anxious disconnect with the universe of human interrelation. The expression of that precise feeling is the artistic achievement of Nevermind. Throughout this album, singer/songwriter/guitarist Kurt Cobain evokes, battles, and embraces abjection, like snapshots from the biblical Book of Jonah (e.g., 1:16; 2:4-6a; 4:7-9). And he does it with a lyrical and musical integration that grips the listener and won’t let go. By the fifth measure of the first song (“Smells Like Teen Spirit”), the listener is hooked. Punk power chords, heavy bass and raspy, blood chilling screams prompt the sympathetic listener to engage the mystery, dangerously tilting toward the irrational (e.g., the completely capsizing outro to “Territorial Pissings”). Variations in mood and dynamics march us steadily toward the wilderness of alienation. Even in mocking the listener who doesn’t understand, but just thinks it’s cool (“In Bloom”), Cobain is relentless in his darkness and brutality. And the rage of this track is immediately and necessarily followed by the almost convincing invitation (“Come as You Are”) to the friendly fellowship of the remembrance of things past, horrifying though they may be. “I swear”, he says, “I don’t have a gun.” Fearsome apathy in the face of erotic longing (“Breed”) is followed by an anti-therapeutic prescription (“Lithium”) for the poet’s psychotic pose In the line “I'm so happy 'cause today I found my friends, they're in my head”. Recorded music doesn’t have to be redemptive or morally uplifting to soar as art. The listener calls to mind literary analogies (think of Mailer, Capote, Burgess, Poe, Wolff, and even the Bible, if one has a little imagination [Hint: the Book of Ecclesiastes]). But it does have to have resolution. And on Nevermind, the closing dirge (“Something in the Way”) resolves in the despair of a barely-surviving homeless man who nevertheless musters a certain level of sensitivity to the animals he encounters. He cannot bring himself to eat or otherwise damage sentient creatures. There’s ‘something in the way’. Listen to this dark, dark album to fortify an appreciation of the Light. The experience will, perhaps counterintuitively, make you grateful. Like Jonah in the belly of the fish (Jonah chapter 2). 5/5

If you ever want to understand or explain Gen X, just listen to "Smells Like Teen Spirit". There are so many lines that could serve as a motto for Generation X. "Here we are now, entertain us." Or my favorite, "Oh well. Whatever. Nevermind." Yes, this is the one that fulfilled all the promises of grunge, underground and indie music, as Nirvana blended all of their influences, from John Lennon to the Pixies and the Meat Puppets, in ways that spoke to the masses. But I think more than that, it was the perfect Gen X signifier. One of the more surprising things on relistening is how there are no skips. The only skippable song is the closing track, "Endless, Nameless". But since it's the final song, you really don't need to skip it as much as you can just stop listening to the album. Whether or not that was Kurt Cobain's intention, stopping the album in the middle of the last song is another Gen X trait. Oh well, whatever. Nevermind.

4.5 | La gente puede querer ser pedante, puede intentar sobreexplicar las cosas, podríamos ponernos a decir si este es un disco sobrevalorado, decir que "Nirvana ni siquiera era la mejor banda de Seattle," que en este disco se vendieron o cualquier otra sarta de razones para hacerse ver más "conocedor" y sentirse por encima de todos. El hecho es que este disco es la razón por la que un movimiento de música local que llevaba unos años brotando explotó y cambió por completo la escena musical y a una generación, impuso y a fin de cuentas creó un movimiento entero que, aun si alguien quiere atacar diciendo que la mayoría de las personas no lo entendían y solo lo seguían por moda, en el fondo tuvo un núcleo fuerte y no se puede desestimar. Este disco cambió por completo la dirección de la música por al menos diez años y hoy en día al escucharlo en general sigue vigente, fresco y tan contestatario a la música de machos y el rock vacío como en su lanzamiento. Hacía una buena cantidad de tiempo que no me sentaba a escucharlo completo de una sentada y mayormente creo me sigue agradando mucho. El inicio, la combinación de Smells, In Bloom y Come As You Are es sin ninguna duda quizá de los inicios más fuertes y sólidos que hay en cualquier disco al grado que pensé por un momento que después de estos años el resto no lograría mantenerse y sentiría un bajón. Es cierto que el resto del disco no logra ese mismo nivel pero casi todas las canciones siguen siendo buenas, esa mezcla de punk y metal relentizados, esas letras crudas hablando de juventudes desencantadas, problemas de salud mental, violaciones, la vida de los indigentes; temas que eran impensables durante todos los 80s y que lograron agarrar a todo el público general. Todo el disco tiene calidad, mensaje y relevancia. Siempre he sentido un tope pequeño al llegar a Drain You y Lounge Act, que si bien no son malas canciones son las que se sienten un poco más genéricas y como si copiaran varias cosas de canciones anteriores, sin embargo el disco se recupera de inmediato con Stay Away y termina con un par excelente de canciones, hablando de manera realmente empática y pesimista sobre personas indigentes y finalmente casi escupiendo en Endless Nameless a todo el resto del disco con una canción que deja chica a Territorial Pissings y pareciera que se burla de lo comercial y sanitizado que pueden escucharse algunas de las otras pistas, recordándonos que la banda en realidad tiene carácter y que, a pesar del éxito, se mantiene con cierta integridad en su concepto.

I really love this album. So much nostalgia. The first 7 tracks are basically perfect. Drain you and Lounge Act lost my focus a little, but still good songs. I dislike Stay Away, but On a Plain gets me right back into it. Endless, Nameless is trash, but I don't really count it against the album since it wasn't on the original and was a hidden track later.

I think I love this album more at this point in my life than I have at any other point. The standard for what drums should sound like on a rock album. If these songs weren’t also loud hard rock songs, they could easily all be top 10 pop hits with different production. For all of the things rock music has become since it’s inception, I’m hard pressed to think of a better example of a rock album that’s also incredibly popular in mainstream culture.

Classic grunge album. Pretty much the album that introduced everyone to the Seattle sound on a massive scale. The quiet/LOUD/quiet thing got repetitive though. Also I think it was easy to overlook the actual artistry of the music because it was so plastered on MTV.

I remember when Nevermind broke through the zeitgeist, it was unavoidable. Everyone was talking about it, and images of Cobain and the album cover were everywhere. I wasn't listening to radio much, and I was deeply suspicious of anything too popular, and I was deeply repulsed by the cover art, which I took unironically, rather than as social criticism, so I studiously avoided all things Nirvana. At the time, I was working an overnight shift, and the store I was working in happened to have the tape lying around, so I put it on out of morbid curiosity and an impulse to give it a fair chance. (This is also how I discovered Beck's Mellow Gold and Odelay). I was blown away. First, there was Dave Grohl's titanic drum sound. Then there was Cobain's anguished howls, which were somehow always musical. Then there was the sense of humor, lack of self pity, and empathy in the lyrics. And the songs, while being simple, didn't feel stupid simple, more like stripped to essentials with just wall to wall hooks. And then, towards the end of the album, there were haunting ballads, like Something in the Way. It felt like Kurt was channeling the angst of an entire generation of kids, and it was totally cathartic. There is a tendency these days to downplay Nevermind as "simply a great modern punk record," no doubt because Kurt himself compared his band to The Knack, but that's a little like saying that Exile On Mainstream is just a rock 'n roll record. Likewise, some will say that it's too slick, but Butch Vig's studio sheen created an unbearable tension with Nevermind's punk intent that exponentially increased its power. No, Nevermind is absolutely one of a handful of indisputably great grunge records.

The album that renewed an entire generation. Popularized the grunge genre that shifted rock's tone and lyrical subject toward more personal and gritty subjects, relying less on established principles and more on embracing techniques that capture the spirit of the music you play. And here Kurt Cobain embodies this spirit more than anyone else, playing the guitar however he feels like, sounding like no other. This album is one of the most accessible in grunge. With catchy tunes and a pop-oriented focus, anyone could easily recognize and fall in love with these songs. The high production value helps cement these songs as fantastic works. Subject matter is full of grit; the lyrics are unforgettable. Not just the catchy hooks. Love the vocals, but on first listen, some listeners may find it difficult to hear what he says for many of the songs, but after a while it clears up, noticing all sorts of nonsense that characterizes the narrator. Whether that be a windower on the virge of a mental breakdown in "Lithium" or Cobain himself as a self-conscious teenage idol as in "Smells Like Teen Spirit." Some rough songs like "Territorial Pissings" and "Endless Nameless" that allow for Cobain's creativity, something he would get much more of in the next album In Utero. There are so many things I love about all the songs that it's difficult for me to pick out favorites. Of course I sing along to the more well-known pop songs, and I rock out to the less known garage songs. But this album flows perfectly well from start to finish with not a single weak song.

Since this is one of those albums that has long ago been placed in the echelons of rock music's greatest hits, I think it's one that people might be too eager to jump to the conclusion that it's overhyped or not deserving of the praise it receives. But of course, that's nonsense. Even if you're tired of hearing 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' for the billionth time, it's hard to deny that Cobain tapped into something otherworldly with not only that indie and punk rock inspired masterpiece, but with every single track on this album. Putting aside the well known singles (for my money, Lithium is the superior of the four), not only is every song on this album worth listening to, every song on this album is fan-freaking-tastic. Who can forget 'Drain You', it's bizarre 'guitar solo' and a punk-rock yet Beatles-esque catchiness? The haunting closure of 'Something in the Way', or Cobain maximizing how much gravel he can incorporate into his signature screams in 'Territorial Pissings'. There's no denying so many of these songs saw additional life breathed into them due to Nirvana's seminal 'Unplugged' album, but that doesn't make them any less impressive.

Fuck yeah. I'm so excited to hear this that I might shoot myself in the face. I'm having a midlife crisis. I've recently bought a pair of leather trousers, dyed my hair blonde and now drive a ferrari. I fuck midgets in a warehouse at the weekend and keep one in the shed as a slave. Nirvana reminds me of a time when I didn't do any of those things and I miss those times. Help me.

Smells Like Team Spirit reminds me of going out with my second boyfriend, Sam Coleman (Dan Metcalf was so fleeting I'm not sure it counts). Sam was a rock-head and I wanted to impress him with my music knowledge. I was already dabbling in rock (this is was not too far off my gentle transition from S Club 7 to Green Day), but went all out I listened to my brother's various volumes of Air Guitar - a compilation of rock hits. Nirvana was on it, as was Teenage Kicks. Which again reminds me of that very exciting time going out with Sam, despite us actually not having an awful lot of contact. Anyway, once I had listened to Nirvana I had quite a bit to say to Sam via MSN Messenger and it must have worked cos he wrote my initials and hearts ALL over his pencil case, alongside a large 'rock on' hand symbol drawing.

I wish it were my first time listening to it so I can both listen to it more objectively and re-experience that all over again, but even trying to pretend I hadn't heard it before, it's very much still an album where every song is one I'd rate at least a 4 and where there are more than enough 5-stars to warrant an album-wide 5. I can't believe I missed the day this one was our album!

La primer vez que escuché a Nirvana fue en la secundaria y precisamente el Nevermind puede ser que soundgarden o pearljam sean mejores bandas pero nirvana (o mas bien Cobain) sabía como llegar a las entrañas de toda una generación tal vez sin querer hacerlo. Tenía tantos pedos en su cabeza y sabía como reflejarlo en música y letra. Tengo conocidos/amigos que aún hablan de teorías accerca de su muerte, recolectabamos artículos descompuestos o cosas que pudieramos destrozar al ritmo de sus canciones (lo llamabamos Nirvanazo) el hermano de un amigo es fan from hell y hasta la fecha hace fiesta de Nirvana cada 5 de abril Ver sus videos era impactante para mi en esa época, en ese momento era un grito de la juventud y de una generación que hoy en día veo que fue muy grande incluso para un sector bastante grande en México Me acabo de dar cuenta que Nirvana me gusta mucho y que es muy probable el haberlos escuchado sea la causa del gusto propio por seguir el sendero del Rock Tal vez el disco sea un 4 pero le voy a dar el 5 por lo que me han hecho vivir y sentir desde el momento en que escuché el primer guitarrazo de Smells con la entrada de la batería

oscillating bw a 4 and a 5. this album is no skip primarily in the beginning but overall each song needs to be studied and jammed to on their own. the songwriting is incredible and studying each song more would definitely feel more confident giving this album a 5. polly for example is such a smart and effective way to write about women’s experience with sexual abuse and shedding light on it through music; it's terrifying, and singing as the abuser produces such an eerie and uncomfortable effect and makes you hate the abuser and feel immense sympathy for "Polly". knowing how much kurt cobain championed women and women's autonomy provides more context, but this song as a whole is so well done. ending with something in the way closes out the album so well since it starts so "angry" and active, but ends calmer while still maintaining that angst and grunge.

This album is a whole era in and out of itself. Never gets old. Back in the day I didn't pay much attention to it as it was everywhere and it wasn't underground enough for me (yeah, I was that teenager). However, by the time In Utero was released I had already embraced Nevermind and still love this album to this day. I listened to the remastered version for this review and really rocked to it.

Les classiques sont pas des classiques pour rien. L'album est écoeurant du début à la fin (la dernière toune compte pas).

J’ai réalisé que Polly, on a plain, drain you et stay away sont de solide tracks. Dans le fond, elles sont juste surplombé par les chef d’œuvre en début d’album. Je cautionne toute les bonnes critiques sur cet album. Je l’évite terrorial pissing et la dernière tracks pas rap!! Je lévite: come as you are !! Sérieux !! Grave cette toune la !!

It's been a looooong time since I listened to a Nirvana album in its entirety (the unplugged live recording probably being the exception). I used to really love Nirvana as a pre-teen and obviously my music tastes have changed again and again. Revisiting it so many years later I'm sort of surprised by how good this album really is. I don't think it's the nostalgia speaking, since the vast majority of music I liked as a teen makes me cringe now. It's just a really really good album, very well-rounded too. The only song I didn't like was the last one, which was originally omitted and then added as a hidden, final track. Omitting it was probably the right thing to do. But still a fantastic album overall.

"I'm so happy, 'cos today I found my friends... They're in my head" No es sorpresa que hayamos tardado tan poco en llegar a uno de los tantos discos grabados en el mítico Sound City de Los Angeles. Quien no conozca, es el estudio donde grabaron discos personajes desconocidos de la música como Johnny Cash, Guns ‘N Roses, Fleetwood Mac, Slipknot, Tom Petty y tantos otros provenientes de la generación de la cinta de 24 tracks. La diferencia notoria con los discos de hoy está dentro del compromiso en cada track. Grabando en cinta no existe el ProTools, si le erraste a una nota no la podés arreglar y te toca grabar toda la sección de nuevo. Por ende, las canciones que se escuchan en este álbum son producto de toma tras toma tras toma tras toma hasta tener la versión perfecta. Y la verdad es que se nota muchísimo en una banda de hard rock como Nirvana (no, no hacían grunge, basta) la cual DEBERIA caracterizarse por un sonido crudo y distorsionado, pero no… Cada tema tiene un nivel de pulido y amor que no tiene comparación con otras entregas del género. Sobre el disco en sí, hay mil cosas que se podrían decir. Fue uno de los primeros que me hizo sentir parte de un grupo, hence el titulo de este intento de review. Venís de escuchar las Spice Girls o los Hanson y te encontrás con gente que siente y canta cosas que todavía no podías poner en palabras pero que te pasaban en el pecho y la experiencia es cuasi mágica. Desde la calma interrumpida de Lithium hasta la desesperanzada Something in the Way el rango del disco es incomparable junto a otros discos de esta banda. Un momento estás reventando un auto a patadas mientras suena Breed y al otro estás tirado en el sillon contemplando el suicidio mientras Something in the way te pone la escopeta en la mano (fun fact, el comienzo de la canción fué grabado mientras Cobain estaba acostado en un sillon en la cabina de grabación y no en el estudio porque dentro del mismo, no había forma de que le saliera just right). Con todo dicho, es un disco que aun quien no disfrute del género debería escuchar, aunque sea una vez. Es crudo, es ruidoso, es descuidado, es cuidado, es enorme, es chiquito. Es todo, y nada. Para muchos, el portal con el que empezaron a formarse musicalmente y generar un gusto propio, y ese legado es innegable. Notas adicionales: - Siento muchísimo mas respeto por Dave Grohl como baterista que como frontman. Hermoso ser humano nevertheless. Ojalá vuelva a tocar la batería para QOTSA. - El bebe de la tapa se llama Spencer Elden. No sé por qué retengo ese dato. No lo hablé con la psicóloga. - Todas las canciones mas “intimas” se sienten cantadas y tocadas mucho mas cerca del micrófono. No se si lo sea, pero se siente intencional. - Dr. Dre dice que es uno de sus discos favoritos de rock, y siendo que es uno de los mejores productores del mundo, ALGO DE RAZON DEBE TENER. - Cobain dice que se dio cuenta que la banda era famosa cuando vio que Weird Al había hecho una parodia.

Sin duda alguna, uno de los mejores discos de la historía de la música. Producido por Butch Vig, baterista de Garbage. Tiene 13 temones. No puedo ser muy objetivo porque son de esos discos que marcaron mi adolescencia tremendamente. Claramente, Smell Like Teen Spirit es el tema más famoso del disco junto con Come as You Are. En lo personal, los mejores temas son Lithium, Polly y Drain You pero vamos, es un disco no skipeable. Vean Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck. Gran documental. 1000 de 10 ludomatics.

Listo. Arrancas con Smells Like Teen Spirit y pensas que sos invencible, omnipotente adolescente con olor a faso. Qué himno, lpm. Además, pensas que el disco no se puede poner mejor, y no. Come as you are (y ese solo de Kurt en guitarra tan "regalo inesperado"), Lithium, Breed, In Bloom, On a Plane, Polly, Drain You. En ese orden. Pero no hay tema que no disfrute, por nostalgia y objetivamente. Btw, soy la única que está enojada todo el disco?

I realised I was listening to this reminiscing about university days, and even though this album came out quite a long while before I attended, it somehow became part of the soundtrack to those times after being introduced to Nirvana by a friend I met there. Fired this up and it took me back, being as great to listen to now as it was then. So yeah I'm probably slightly biased, but the last track notwithstanding which I never got on with (I'm gonna ignore that), it's a solid 5 for me.

This album is famed for changing alternative music, and I can see why. Enjoyed this album from start to finish, it sounded well mixed, my only issue is I don't remember much about the last few tracks as they seemed less distinctive than the rest. Very torn between 4 and 5 stars, as I really enjoyed the album, but it isn't perfect. I'll probably round up from 4.5 here, as I preferred it to the albums I've given 4 stars to.

I used to act like I didn't like Nirvana because they were so heralded and some of Kurt's behavior...rubbed me the wrong way I guess? I used to put my nose in the air and cry "overrated!" I was an idiot. This album is a stone cold classic. The singles ESPECIALLY Smells Like Teen Spirit have been played to death by rock radio, but looking past that: they are great songs. My personal favorite here is Drain You. It's a true earworm and never got beaten to death on the airwaves.

It is just a few weeks away from it being 30 years since Nevermind and Smells like Teen Spirit topped the charts across the world. It is also nearly 30 years since I stage dived at their show at Sydney's long since closed Phoenician Club. Never was there a gig with such energy and excitement, it was impossible not to get caught up in the atmosphere. Few if any albums have captured a zeitgeist as well as this one and it was the perfect soundtrack for 18 year old misfit from the suburbs to find his people.

This brings back so many memories of my angst-ridden and disaffected yout--after all, a cute boy who played the guitar in my high school introduced Nirvana to me. Sort of. It was one of the bands that got me through those tough teenage years, to be honest. When I was sad, I would blast some of these songs from this album to drown the world out or to imagine screaming the lyrics of these songs. This band is punk rock and I am still, deep inside, very punk rock too. I love this band and their sick riffs, their lyricism, and the fact that Polly is an anti-rape anthem. But upon second listening for this project, I realised that I missed out on a lot of good songs. Apart from my favourites, like Smells Like Teen Spirit, Come As You Are, and obviously Polly, I'm also surprised by the slower song, Something In The Way. I wasn't educated with knowledge of music, so I can only comment on the fact that Nirvana has always had a very distinct sound and style that gave the band its identity. Other pluses tangentially related to the album include: Kurt Cobain being a feminist and always trying to stand up to do the right thing. I hope he's resting in peace. 5/5

What shocked me is how often I heard a Black Sabbath influence in this album (meant as a positive). A no-brainer 5 🌟

Lo-Endless, Nameless Hi-Everything else! I can't really think of any albums in my lifetime that have truly made history, but this is one of them; Just about overnight "grunge" was born, and to the uninitiated, sounded like screaming and thrashing about--It wasn't about that, it was the perfect balanced blend of garage punk, nü metal, teen angst, and flannel and torn jeans as far as the eye could see. Raw chaos...It was exactly what the world needed after a decade of tight slacks, button-up shirts, and precisely sculpted hairdos. Nevermind is a carefully crafted atomic bomb, it subverts expectations, the lyrics are weird and otherworldly, but curious and observational. The guitars crunch, the bass is plucky, the drums pound, and Kurt ties the room together. The only less-than-perfect track on the album is Endless, Nameless, not a bad track by any means, but feels like it could be done without, as there are 12 other great tracks. Seeing as this was a lot of folks first CD, I could see this was an ingenious way to let the listener know the album is over and it's time to shuffle around for a different one...Many albums of the time were like this, shunting their weakest track to the end. Everything else is perfection, this album is nearly perfect, and it left an indelible mark on history.

Ah, ovo je bio među prvim albumima, odnosno oni su bili među prvim izvođačima koje sam počeo slušati skrenuvši od svoje rute glazbe gdje je većinom prevladavao hip hop i svaka maltene grana šta ima veze s hip hopom (nu-metal, rap-rock, trap rap iz okolice 2010. itd...). U razredu su kod nas bili dost nastrojeni grunge-om, pogotovo Kurtom i Nirvanom. I mene je to zanimalo, odbijao sam neko vrijeme, ali kad sam upo u ovaj album i diskografiju, bilo je odlično. Pogledavši moj last.fm profil gdje se moglo vidjeti od 2009. godine kada sam krenuo nekog izvođača slušati, ovdje pokazuje listopad 2011, bliže rečeno 03.10.11'. Uglavnom je to bio Nevermind i Bleach, ostalo je Historia (get it?). Sve u svemu - In Utero mi je bolji, ali Nevermind mi je draži.

Po 30 latach wrażenie robi, ile z utworów tworzących album jest obecnie nadal uważanych za hity - praktycznie żadnego z nich nie można nazwać fillerem.

I feel like this album has become such a part of the musical wallpaper of the last 30 years that it’s almost impossible to talk any shit on it. I will attempt to do that however, as I can still remember when this album came out- it felt like it ripped off all the right bands in just the right way. There’s Sonic Youth in here, there’s Jesus Lizard, there’s Mudhoney, there’s Soundgarden, there’s the Dead Boys- it’s like their influences have become so in twined in their music that you could no longer tell they’re ripping all those bands off. I guess that’s what makes an album A classic. As much as it pains me to say, this is an undeniable classic…

This is as good as it gets right? I got into Nirvana when I was 16, when the Greatest Hits album came out in 2002 (I think I got it for Christmas, and proceeded to drink deep of their back catalogue). That fall there was also a new Foo Fighters album out, Muchmusic was rerunning their Nirvana documentaries and Kurt’s diaries were wrongly published. Nirvana were in a revival period and despite Kurt having died 8 years earlier, it felt a generation ago at that time. Listening to this one now, it’s amazing that I had ever thought of this as gritty or non mainstream music. It’s pure pop perfection, I think it’s basically The Beatles in its specificity and catchiness. Part of this has been every popular rock band of the last 30 (!) years ripped this off, from Oasis to Arctic Monkeys, and Linkin Park to Royal Blood. This one is also short enough that it absolutely does not waste a single note. There’s nothing difficult to understand here, guitar solos are pretty much the chorus’ repeated again and Grohls drumming makes the music exciting even if you’re listening on iPod headphones. While a lot of the albums on this list I’ve played I love, this is one of the very few I would play again after it finishes. It’s so focused and still so raw. Probably about the most powerful album I’ve ever heard. Nirvana were a gateway for me to the rest of alternative and indie rock. At this time my nascent CD collection would have been Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and maybe Barenaked Ladies. I went into so much material on Nirvana I started learning about Pixies, Janes Addiction, Bay City Rollers and Mudhoney. I also started listening to Pearl Jam and Soundgarden at the same time. To this day I still have flannel button down shirts as part of my uniform. Likely the most influential album to my musical tastes and pop culture leanings. I also have no misgivings or embarrassment about my allegiance to it. I think this album is an essential part of growing up. I suppose I will go into my thoughts about Kurt Cobain next time I get a Nirvana album. Maybe on Dave Grohl if there’s a Foo Fighters coming up.

This album is the realest, most raw and desperate expression of self that’s ever been recorded. And I think that’s largely why it catapulted Kurt Cobain and Nirvana from obscurity into the stratosphere of iconic mainstream music when it was released. There’s power in all of the unadulterated angst and anger that people immediately connect with, then and now. It’s not overblown hype, this album was the harbinger of a whole new musical era and gave a voice to lonely weirdos everywhere. It is an absolute masterpiece, completely brilliant. Every track is a five star track. It’s fucking phenomenal.

It’s brilliant. A smack you round the face record with awesome hooks, stunning drums and a front man of irresistible, unlikely charm pouring his heart out (maybe a little too much, as it happens). The whole album has you singing along, head banging along wherever you are. It’s a terrific achievement and modern music would never quite be the same again.

An absolute classic album! Although more "polished" than their previous album, Nevermind is a cornerstone of the grunge movement in the early '90s. Although the band - in particular Kurt Cobain - resented some of it's success, it truly brought grunge to the masses. Everyone under the age of 25 at the time, would have sold their soul for a ticket to any of their shows. Best: Smells Like Teen Spirit; Come as You Are Worst: Lounge Act

The hooks are infectious and dirty, like an open wound. Cobain's personality shines through every song with his raw vocals. The bass and drums hit like a ton of bricks; it's the sound of a decade and yet it's timeless. The songs I've heard a thousand times before are still great, and the songs I've barely heard at all are refreshing and just as good. It's the perfect noise.

I watched the Smells Like Teen Spirit video a couple of times, noted how I couldn’t get it out of my head, bought the album, and then realised that this most famous of songs is actually eclipsed by the likes of Drain You (my favourite, by far) and, say, Lithium. Personal preferences aside, there are no duds in this album. And then the album broke out to become the phenomenon it still is and mark a bit of a crossroad in the evolution of rock music. There simply is no denying the historical importance of this album. Does it stand the test of time? I’m the first to admit it doesn’t trigger me the way it used to. I will also admit to have grown much mellower and refined. But some landmarks are still worth recognising as the landmarks they are.

It would be hard to put a number on just how many times I've listened to this album. When I was a teenager, I used to just play it on repeat, no need to hear anything else when I've got the perfect album already in the CD player. This album is so much more than the sum of its parts. I think a lot of that comes down to Cobain's songwriting and Butch Vig's production. The songs thrash between quiet and full-throated explosions of anger. Vig's production brings coherence to the madness. I know Kurt disliked the way this album sounded and felt that it didn't represent the band, but it certainly represented something that the world needed. This album rewrote all the rules. Music hasn't been the same since. In some ways that's good, in some ways that's bad. It's the culmination of decades of struggling indie and alternative bands trying to break through with Nirvana becoming the biggest band in the world. It's well deserved. This album is incredible. Every song is good. This album definitely has a sound, but it never begins to feel samey. It feels weird reviewing an album that everyone already knows about, but if you haven't listened to Nevermind, go ahead and listen to it. It's amazing. Also, I was reading on the YouTube page about how this album came out 30 years ago, and all of my bones turned to dust. 5/5

I'm not the biggest Nirvana guy, but after listening to this album in the context of this project, I understand a bit better why people are really into them. I still wouldn't voluntarily listen to most of these tracks, but there's no denying the massive footprint of this work. Best track: Breed

Well fuck. I had never listened to this album in it's entirety. Was very surprised how varied the songs are and pretty awesome at that. Can't give it 5 stars because that would imply that every single song was a goddamn hit, which for me wouldn't be the case, but this gets a solid 4 stars.

Makes me think of my uncle putting this record on when I was a teenager. Since I “came of age” in the 2000s, Nirvana had already been taught to me as rock legend, a myth of the past (though the 1990s were not that long ago). This still slaps

If it weren't for Butch Vig being a brilliant con-man, we'd'nt've "Teen Spirit", but we'd've an alive Cobain. This album is what happens when someone directs anger at the masses, and ends up being called the Messiah for it. In a way, the genius of the album, and its wide variety of dissonances, ever-changing moods, and constant nihilism is secondary to the fact that everyone hears its first bars, and chose to copy it, ignoring what the rest of the album was trying to say. In that sense, it's like the Gettysburg of the 1990s. Fucking Nirvana fans, they killed Nirvana. Score: 83/100

Este es mi tercer acercamiento a este disco. La primera vez fue con Erick, en el verano antes de entrar a la prepa y definitivamente yo no era el público correcto para eso, pues para ese entonces ni siquiera escuchaba un disco de Metallica completo. Luego, hace unos 10 años por cierta ex que "es muy fan" y volví a oírlo con un nuevo criterio. No le fue tan mal como la primera y definitivamente me gustó más que el 'In Utero'. Ahora, siendo un disco de 23 años, tengo toda otra perspectiva y me gustó muchísimo más que en acercamientos anteriores. De entrada no lo sentí tan estridente como lo recordaba e incluso noto que las canciones están armadas de una manera bastante pop y la estridencia está más que nada en efectos de guitarra y atasque en la batería. Por otro lado, las canciones que podrían ser 'baladescas' (como Polly) en realidad son las que ahora no me gustan tanto. A mi parecer lo que le puede sobrar a este disco y a la obra de Nirvana en general es la actitud como de condescendencia y desdén de Cobain. Por ejemplo, leí que este disco se iba a llamar Sheep porque todos los que lo compran son ovejas; o como las letras a veces son casi murmullos que "nadie de la prensa ha entendido bien porque ni siquiera las logran transcribir". Entiendo que en su cabeza sonaba muy cabrón ponerse como inalcanzable y inaccesible, pero a mí me suena más a postura de adolescente que de artista.

It has finally arrived. An album I would have expected to be on this list. No disrespect to Michael Jackson but the minute I saw this album cover I fist pumped the air. I haven’t ever listened to the album but I know so many of the songs on here. Nirvana is a band that I have more relation to through others than myself. I am not a Nirvana fan but I know a lot of people who were at one point. Our cousin Harry had a Nirvana box set we listened to in New Jersey when we were kids, I had a classmate, Shelby Jones, who would spend lunches telling me about Kurt Cobain and what he meant to her (he had passed by then) and to music. She had lost her parents in a car wreck and was always listening to this album and I’m sure some of his others but she introduced me to Nirvana. I think of her along with my cousin and all those other young kids out there who latched onto this particular grunge rock that totally fits the bill of Alternative. It was perfect if you were going through a phase or were just an emo type of person but that doesn’t mean the sound is bad. Teen Spirit was played many a times in the football locker room or in movies I would watch. Come As You Are was just recently featured in Captain Marvel. Territorial Pissings was covered by one of my favorite metal bands, Ill Nino. Those are the three I know off the bat so I’m excited to see if there are any other that I recognize. But that is a lot to say about this band and album during just this opening song! Which I didn’t realize was five minutes long. Oh I’ve listened to Bloom before in Rock Band! Nirvana, especially this album, feels like this underground scene that eventually turned main stream. That’s what Apple Music says and I totally agree. I haven’t even mentioned that this album came out the year I was born so maybe I was the baby on the cover, who knows. I think we all were that baby on the cover chasing after the almighty dollar. That album cover is probably one of the most recognized of all time. I’ve seen it parodied, censored, and everything in between. I know when I was younger it was the source of many giggles for getting to see his wee willy winky but in my current age, all I see is that dollar bill *insert cool guy glasses*. I wonder if in someway Nirvana inspired Seether, they sound kind of the same. Breed is great, that’s four awesome songs in a row. Love the fast paste drums and strings along with Kurt’s brooding voice. Lithium was great, I don’t think I’ve actually listening to that song fully before. On Territorial Pissings, I also haven’t listened to this fully, just the cover. I like the cover better but that doesn’t mean it’s bad. A lot of the rest of the songs were good but the reason I never listened to the album is I am not the biggest Nirvana fan (did not like the last song on this at all). Not sure why because they are awesome. Listening to this album has helped, especially with finding some new favs like Breed and Stay Away.

Any album that opens with Smells Like Teen Spirit and goes on with tracks such as Come As You Are is going to be a classic. I can only imagine what it must have felt and sounded like to have a Dave Grohl driven, Cobain inspired Nirvana burst onto the scene and remind everyone what sounds used to be made in people's garages. The simplicity of the bass lines, Ghrols drums and Cobain's insular disdain shine in songs such as Lithium, a brilliant record.

It’s about time I listened to nirvana I think. From this track list i know Smells like teen spirit and Come as you are. I quite like both so I have pretty high expectations. SLTS is a banger. Album name drop :o nice. Second track is still a vibe. Omg are they dissing a certain type of fan or am i reading it completely wrong. Could just be about being immature i guess. If this album continues like this it might be a 5 im really into it. Second gun mention. This album goes a lot harder than i thought it would. Lithium is a bit meh. Some more questionable lyrics in Polly. First 4 tracks were really strong. Following 3 were whatever. Drain you is trying hard to be gross but it's okay, i still like it and its lyrics. All songs give me something to think about so that's cool whether i like them or nah. Lounge act is okay. Stay away was ???. LOVE Something in the way, im obsessed with his barely audible singing for the verse. The second half of the last song is really nice. Ah I'm really glad i listened to this album, at times i really loved the lyrics, might give it another listen just for that. About the sound, its okay, not what im normally into but its pretty accessible for someone who doesnt like a heavier sound, harsh vocals here and there but they're not the norm.

I totally forgot something in the way was on this one - I remember hearing that apparently when they were recording this Cobain just kept asking that the vocal be made quieter and quieter until it was barely audible. I really like the range between smells like teen spirit and something in the way. It goes a bit too grungey in the middle for me though.

In conclusione: Risentirlo dopo tutto questo tempo m'ha fatto un effetto strano. Questo album per me è l'inizio della feticizzazione del disagio nella musica, è controverso come album proprio perché c'ha due forze in conflitto, quella della libera espressione di un disagio generazionale e personale e quella del fatto che sto disagio vende se viene rifinito un minimo. In ogni caso pure quando lo ripulisci un po' penso che il contenuto è talmente forte che arriva lo stesso pure infiocchettato coi coretti e i ritornelli un po' forzati. Una cosa che mi ha sorpreso è stato risentire più influenza di quella che ricordavo dei Nirvana sui Foo Fighters anche come sonorità. Il suono è tipico del genere e del periodo, molto influenzato secondo me dal metal che era la cosa più vicina anche se forse oggi i Nirvana sarebbero stati prodotti diversamente.

Here I am, I am entertained. However, that entertainment decreases somewhat past the half-way mark of Nirvana's Nevermind. Incredible highs, such as Smells Like Teen Spirit, In Bloom, and Come As You Are with their radiating energy and angsty chants, are in stark contrast with the dumb and meaningless Territorial Pissings, the annoying riffs and vocals on Stay Away, and the disgustingly confusing instrumentals on Endless, Nameless. Because I greatly appreciate Nirvana's contributions to the grunge genre, and Nevermind clearly contains some of their best material ever written, a 4/5 is a fitting score.

I never said this wasn't a great album. It's a great album! Despite turning the masses onto grunge, my argument has been that I still don't think its sound came out of no where. You can hear in this album all the punk, post-punk and alt music that had come before it. Just not that many people were tuned into it all ... until this album broke through. As Dave Grohl likes to say, Wilson-Phillips had the No. 1 song in the U.S. when Nevermind was released on Sept. 24, 1991 (same day as Badmotorfinger and one month after Ten, fwiw). 'Nough said.

Toisaalta omassa genressään kyllä aivan eliittiä ja todella merkittävä pioneeri aikanaan.

Tough album for me to be objective about. I loved this album, but I also think its overrated. I think there were a lot of bands doing similar things at the time and Nirvana never particularly stood out to me as doing any one thing particularly well. The classics have been over played more than most top 40 hits and the fanaticism for the band was also annoying when it reached its peak. Yet its still a good album. No real filler, every song is good and the band rocks. Still gets 4 stars from me due to all of this, but my actual enjoyment of listening to this now a days is more like a 2-3

Nevermind is a rock/grunge classic, a must listen for all. The first half of this album is full of top chart songs that are nowadays super recognizable and one might say even a bit overplayed.

I shit on Nirvana a lot because I don't think they really "invented" Grunge or "revolutionized" music in the 90s. The fact is that there were plenty of other (and better) Grunge bands - they just got famous early. Still - they are the simplest, most raw, most garage-bandy Grunge band. And they made a lot of kids want to pick up guitars and start creating music. And - I like most of their songs. They are a good band that everyone should hear - just one of many, though. They aren't gods. :)

Genre: Grunge 4/5 A 90s rock classic, Nevermind is Nirvana at its best: loud and abrasive, yet angsty and thoughtful. Kurt Cobain and co. take their material and put it into an alt-punk blender and hit frappe. This album, famous for its naked baby cover and its massive hit Smells Like Teen Spirit, is much more than what makes it so popular. It's a collection of well-arranged, well-written, and well-played songs that play out like a live performance would, with peaks and valleys in all the right places. While the hard hitters on this album (Smells Like Teen Spirit, In Bloom, Drain You) are absolute jam sandwiches, Nirvana also does a decent job of slowing it down and providing us with some of 90s rock's best ballads (Polly, Something in the Way). The other tracks on this album, as well, are great little musical nuggets that any rock fan should be able to pick up and enjoy, as well as recognize. The performances on this are really a wonderful thing as well, with all 3 of these fellas really playing their hearts out. This album is a classic listen that has truly stood the test of time, and won't go away for a while.

I think this is their best album, as do most I suppose. There are some all-time classics on this one. But I still can't find way to give Nirvana the cred others give them. I don't think they started grunge thought they for sure were the most popular. I think they were just poppy enough for radio air play which meant all the others got the back seat. I also find many of their songs to be nearly indiscernible from others. That said, this is still a pretty great album.

Back from in the day (when my primary exposure was massive overplay of Teen Spirit on MTV) I discounted Nirvana and grunge in general and Cobain in particular, and later sort of shrugged at his death. Another rock and roll drug addict unable to negotiate fame. Later I came around on some grunge era acts like Screaming Trees and Mudhoney and after listening to Cobain’s Unplugged set, decided I’d been wrong there too. There is a lot of strong stuff on this, though there is also some definite filler, and the protracted noise jam at the end of the album is a tired trope I’d love to see retired. Still an iconic entry in its genre and time.

A truly classic album if I ever heard one. Very front loaded and honestly a bit uneven in the second half. And because of that it's not exactly one of my favourites in the alternative rock landscape.

Quisiera llorar Quisiera morir Como Kurt Cobain * bebe * Confieso que nunca había escuchado este disco completo, y no conocía las versiones 'de estudio' de varias de las canciones, como Poly, porque sí, el único disco completo de ellos que conocía era el Unplugged. Lo primero que pensé al escuchar este disco fue: "demonios, suenan demasiado parecido a los Foo Fighters!", y cuál fue mi sorpresa al leer sobre este disco: su baterista fue el mismísmo Dave Grohl, así que seguramente este es uno de los discos favoritos de Ber XD. Desde el punto de vista musical, pues, no soy tan fan. Sé que es un disco muy importante y el "gold standard" del Grunge, pero me resultó un disco difícil de escuchar completo, particularmente "Endless, Nameless". Creo que mi disco favorito de Nirvana no dejará de ser el Unplugged.

Pretty classic-sounding rock, to me at least. Somewhat grungy, I guess, if I had to get specific. If I was craving music like that I would like it, and I can see how it could be cathartic.

Det är absolut ett album med hög nivå men det är ändå något med det som inte gör att jag dras med totalt. Kan inte helt säga exakt vad orsaken är, kanske är det Cobains rispiga röst som blir svårtuggad om man lyssnar mycket på en gång? I små doser känns det lite mer lättsmält iaf. Bäst: "Come as you are"

Bra, såklart, men inte riktigt så bra som konsensus säger? Grungen gör det inte riktigt för mig, är för "noisy". Bästa låt: Svår, Lithium kanske.

Nirvana’s Nevermind as a collection of songs is like the pattern camouflage; edgy and cool in tasteful doses, but a red flag if it’s the entire outfit. An hour straight of music that sounds like this is too much music that sounds like this. I feel the same way about the Beatles. Maybe this is not a productive thing to say. Anyways, this album’s influence on other stuff that I’ve listened to is undeniable, and it’s aesthetic consistency and commitment to its sound and themes is admirable. I’d put a couple songs from this into a playlist so that my friends think I’m cool, but otherwise wouldn’t listen all the way through again. I feel like people who 10/10 this album or say this is their favorite album are the kind of people whose favorite movie is Fight Club or Pulp Fiction

An enjoyable exposition of the grunge sound. So much so that almost every song has a hook I've heard before. And that's despite missing the genre while it was alive and avoiding it in retrospect. I prefer Sturgill's cover of In Bloom, but the brilliance of the composition here is still evident. Other songs are just as strong and are highly sonically cohesive: Substrate of low acoustic and electric guitars, vocals sitting in the middle, occasional high tone flourishes. The angst is laid on a bit thick, but the album's influence is undeniable. The noise on Endless, Nameless is probably my favorite newly-discovered piece of Nirvana music.

Muutamat hittibiisit tällä klassikkolevyllä, mutta kokonaisuutena aika puuduttava ja jotenkin kaikki biisit kuulostivat keskenään samankaltaisilta. Kyllähän tuosta sitä teiniangstikasta tunnelmaa sai, mutta ei tällaista aikuista mörökölliä oikein puhutellut.

Never heard of them. This record was important to me as a guitarist because I could "fake" playing all the songs on this when I was just starting out. I learned every song here. But what I realized is that it was more a relationship of convenience. I don't LOVE any Nirvan records. I LOVE some Nirvana songs. But it's hard for me to make it through an entire record, with the exception of their "Unplugged" performance. And, if I had to pick a studio record, I think it would be "In Utero." "Incesticide" is my favorite release though. I really like Bloom and Territorial Pissings from this record. From a pure musical enjoyment standpoint, this is a 2/5. Adjusted for its influence on modern music.

Nevermind is the second studio album by American rock band Nirvana, released on September 24, 1991 by DGC Records. Produced by Butch Vig, it was Nirvana's first release on the DGC label, as well as the first to feature drummer Dave Grohl. Nevermind features a more polished, radio-friendly sound than the band's prior work, and is therefore considered a significant departure from their debut album, Bleach. Nevermind is often credited with initiating a resurgence of punk culture among teenagers and young adults of Generation X.[3] In addition, it was responsible in part for bringing both grunge and alternative rock music to a mainstream audience and ending the dominance of hair metal.[4] The album has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Overall found this a bit down, whingey and wallowing for my tastes. Even the loud parts seem a bit miserable. I quite like a sad song, but the vibe of this album just isn't my thing. Really surprised how much I struggled with it given the classics on there.

Ok obviously I love this album. In my top, like, fifty maybe? It's so pop yet so fucked up sounding plus it has Kurt Cobain, who obviously is great and he can write a hook for sure, no kidding. We basically have Charlie xcx instead of this, which I'm honestly fine with, think it's a compliment to both artists. Great cover art. I mean color scheme, composition, very anticap, great lettering, great kerning, great baby. I might like in utero better, is that crazy? Relistening, I honestly forgot how good the basslines are on this thing, way better than they need to be considering the lyricism and popstructured grunge. Standouts: Smells like teen spirit, come as you are, Lithium, territorial Pissings, Something in the way. Just some live commentary: Smells like teen spirt. Iconic. Love imagining different stupid dumb lyrics. All time great air guitar song. Come as you are, great bassline. Lithium is better though, plus my favorite lyrics on the album and you can really hear Kurt's voice. Yeah pollys lyrics are fucked up for sure. I want Tropical Fuck Storm to cover this @tropicalfuckstorm Territorial pissings, great deep cut, I feel underrated. Sounds like FIDLA R or wavves, more proof Kurt can write good hook. I like when his voice cracks, very hendrixesque overall. Something in the way, very atmospheric. Sounds like Campdogzz, kinda sad funny lyrics. I would play endless, nameless to someone I wanted to dislike Nirvana, unless they're coming from a heavy rock background, and then i might just play this first.
