1 of 3 thought this review was well written

Nirvana are:
Kurt Cobain: Guitar, Mouth
Krist Novoselic: Bass
Dave Grohl: Drums, Backing Mouth

This album, to me, is like a little of nevermind and a little of bleach. It's like some noise tracks and some not so noisey but still noisey tracks and some softer songs.

To me the highlights are: heart shaped box, rape me, fraces farmer will have her revenge on seattle, pennyroyal tea, and all apologies.

Heart shaped box has a very cool and catchy guitar all the way through. And the bass is perfect for it, I read somewheres that out of every song it was Kurt's favorite bass line. Theres not much to the drums but this is a song that shouldnt have a whole lot of drum fillers and stuff like that.

Rape me, this song has a really simple guitar at the beggining, and when the drum and bass come in they all blend extremely well. The drums are my personal favorite. I really like the lyrics. Kurt had a knack for writing awesome lyrics. At the end its just Kurt screaming rape me and Dave echoing him.

Fraces farmer will have her revenge on seattle, the guitar is definitly my favorite part of this song. The lyrics (once again) are really awesome. The chorus has the best lyrics of the song id say: I miss the comfort in being sad. The bass doesnt really do anything special here (at least i dont think so). The bridge is my personal favorite. I can't really describe how awesome it is. It displays some awesome loud guitar stuff.

Pennyroyal Tea, this song has awesome everything. There is like nothing bad about it, imo. The chorus is really catchy with dave screaming the lyrics with kurt. the bass has awesome fills throughout this song. And the drums are really awesome. The guitar solo is the best part of the song and its really simple and not too long.

All apologies, very awesome and catchy guitar with bass and drums that fit perfectly. This a pretty noiseless track (except for the chorus which isnt that noixsey anyways). The lyrics are very well written. This song is their best no noise song theyve ever written, imo (even though there werent too many not countinh unplugged, which this is on). The lyrics are simple and very awesome. And when the verse comes in with distortion that just makes the song even better then it already was.

The noise tracks are very awesome, but they arent the best on the cd. The best noise track though is Radio Friendly Unit Shifter, which has some very weird guitar and a solid bass and some good drums. Tourettes isnt anything very special and the version on Muddy Banks is better but its still very good. Milk it is definitley the second besst noise track on here. Its got some catchy eveything in it. Scentless apprentice isn't the best but its still pretty good. Its loud and and filled with anger and distortion. I think that very ape is the worst song on the cd. But im gonna have to say its still pretty good. Dumb isnt a noise track and is really good. It shows how good they are at not just being noise and distortion (like all apologies). Its very catchy.

Overall this is a great album and i recommend if you like grunge and nirvana to buy it.

Hate to say it dude but not such a good review. Maybe I am just being harsh because I think this album deserves a better review than that. This album changed my life.

Radio Friendly Unit Shifter owns hard.

Pretty good review, but try to use capitols more often to confuse the reader less.

I could be insane, but this cd just collects dust. I never profess any love for grunge, but I'll still occasionally pop in a Pearl Jam or Stone Temple Pilots album.

The review wasnt bad, I'd say update the format a bit though.

Dude this is an improvement on your incesticide review - you are getting better at including detail. I highly disagree with you on scentless apprentice, although it may be very hardcore, it still spills out emotion by the bucket-full. Try to avoid repetition, use of a thesaurus maybe?

by the way i agree with you completely myramona, i was way too hard on scentless apprentice. When i looked back I don't even know why i said that. But I still think that very ape is the lowest moment.

I don't like "Heart Shaped Box", and let me just say "Very Ape" is far better than it in my opinion.

I'm not a particularly huge Nirvana fan, as this is the only cd of theirs I still listen to. But I do adore this album.

Alright review, I quite liked it, and crazyaff: I think he meant mouth as a joke, as I thought it quite amusing.
I actually just got this album today.

[quote="Bron"]I don't like "Heart Shaped Box"[/quote] It gets really boring after playing it a couple times on Guitar Hero II.

I've heard very little from this album. I'm not really a Nirvana fan.
