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.
