Why This Album Is So Great:
So much has been said about this album and Kurt Cobain in general that I
couldn't possibly start making yet another tributing speech about it. As a band, I
acknowledge what Nirvana have done for music, but I don't think they are all that special.
They did "Nevermind" and then more or less went downhill from there. BUT -
having done an album like "Nevermind" is also more than most people could ever
dream about. It's filled with great rock (or if you insist, grunge) songs (and a couple of
bummers) and from being just a great album it has slowly crept into my top 50. Even though
"Smell Like Teen Spirit" is the song that really broke Nirvana, I think songs
like "In Bloom", "Come As You Are" and "Lithium" are much
better. But that says more about the superiority of those songs than it does about the
smelly one. In conclusion, I have finally realised how great and important an album this
is and hereby acknowledge that.
Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 8
