i'm undecided. not as in which to buy, i've heard both, but as in which do you good people think is bettr
In Utero. Easy!
the best Nirvana album.
...but i often wonder why people give a terse response to a question, then type 'Next!'.
What is that about?
and are clearly wrong
You can psycho-analyse me a lot more than that. I mean, I gave you one whole word to work with!
Don't forget to be passive aggressive if you're a coward :)
Also, note the irony of your last sentence, then lick my balls.
Also, are your balls clean?
I'm wondering why people say next? What comes next? That's the bit i'm after!
Also, my balls were clean when i got out of the shower this morning, but it's a hot day and a few hours have passed... i'll retract that order.
but having played it to death as a 15 year old I know it so well it doesn't do that much for me anymore.
In Utero is more interesting to listen to.
If I could take half of Incesticide and half of Bleach and glue them together, that would probably be my favourite Nirvana album.
Nevermind is better!
Lets argue again!
Songs from Nevermind
but then i've never heard it all the way through, call it instinct.
where nevermind is the underrated joint? when i was a kid in utero was the like "weird" one you bought after nevermind and found "hard" to get into but judging by how people jump straight to in utero's defence, nevermind don't get a lot of love nowadays right?
it's grown on people, not to mention Nervermind was the poppier album and because most people who listend to Nirvana in their early teens only listend to them for their name... well ya know YEAP!
to save you deciding between the two.
Bleach is also the most overrated album ever
Bleach is my fave, but it's not as good as pretty much anything the Melvins or Sebadoh or The Jesus Lizard ever made.
I use to play Nevermind all the time and haven't ever owned In Utero, but it's a wicked album.
I find it hard to get worked up about any Nirvana since my teens.
all the way.
such an indie response. fair enough if you think in utero, but whats the 'duh' for? look at all the 'greatest albums of all time' lists that have been done by respected, informed music critics: nevermind is always way ahead of in utero. i hate conceited indie responses like that, they do my head in..
look through the thread and there's an underlying current of 'it's not indie to like nevermind more than in utero'.
I'm pretty sure a phrase like 'duh' is far more likely to be tongue-in-cheek, do you have some kind of chip on your shoulder about 'indie' things.
*plus, I need to stop using clichés.
if everyone was somehow able to listen to both albums in some sort of a theoretical vaccuum where all cultural and personal circumstances associated with each record were not taken into account (e.g. his suicide, how popular each was, or how 'mainstream', etc etc) would all the people who are saying in uttero on this thread still be saying it? i don't think so. and yes, i do have a chip on my shoulder about 'look-how-indie-i-am' types. but you knew that.
you guys are insane. Nevermind, Nevermind, Nevermind, Nevermind...well, actually it depends if you like pop music or a bloody racket.
for me it's always in utero, (scentless apprentice is one of my favourite nirvana songs)
i do love the last half of nevermind though, drain you, on a plain etc...
But i'm 15 so i wouldn't take it to heart.
In Utero has the better production, but they forgot to write good songs to go with it..
it was a 2 for £10 offer and i needed something to go with Puzzle (i still hadn't bought it yet, i was afraid of the potential disappointment) and what did i go for instead...MGM fucking T, i think i fail at life.
i'm beginning to think that sub-consciencely i believe it's cool not to own any Nirvana albums.
cool. Well done.
It's just a better record all round, for me at least.
it's just got that typical Butch Vig syrupy over-produced sheen which puts me off. Give me In Utero, Bleach or anything above it.
hands down, even the secret song at the end is ace.
There's not much in it, but it edges it for me, because of its formative influence on my music listening. And the intro to Come As You Are still gets me everytime. In Utero is great, and possibly a better album, but not as important to me.
would've been incredible.
As it stands, In Utero > Nevermind
....40 odd massive german mics on the wall when recording drums trick going down on nevermind....it would have been fricken mega!!
so for me it in utero...purely on how it is produced..
I'm not sure I can actually decide. I haven't listened to Nevermind for a long time but would probably pick In Utero if I fancied listening to some Nirvana now.
But to say IU is 'better' than N is not that straight forward; it's rawer, benefits from Steve Albini's recording, it's certainly more interesting lyrically and musically, but Nevermind is such a complete juggernaut of a rock record. Not often that one album (largely) completely changes the direction of a genre of music...no can't decide.
I love In Utero as well but every time I stick Nevermind on I'm knocked out at how good it still sounds. Not a duff song on there. Oh, and I love the production, it sounds immense.
It's a brilliant album, but I wish they'd applied In Utero style production to it. Then it'd be utterly amazing.
hopefully most folks are now past and over the whole 'sell out over produced/over played' argument you used to hear a while back, and can now step back and say that although in utero is more raw and arguably catches their sound more, in terms of actual amazing songs with pop-catchy hooks nevermind is mind blowing.
then again i firmly think songs like scentless apprentice and milk it are their best..
