Best Nirvana Albums
The Top TenXW
No controversy here! However alternative you consider yourself within alternative rock, this is one you'll return to endlessly. Maybe it's because the singles are overplayed, I like the second half of the album even more.
Fantastic album again, cannot be knock pure gold!
I'd give this the slight edge over Nevermind. Favorite songs are Serve the Servants, Scentless Apprentice, Heart Shaped Box, Milk It, and All Apologies.
Better than Nevermind, much darker, more emotional, more atmospheric, more aggressive, much less radio friendly. - mtndewlord
Nevermind is great, but overrated. In Utero has a better grunge sound and is very emotional and crazy.V1 Comment
Fantastic anger in these lyrics, she's what real music sounds like. Songs like Negative Creep really show the aggression in Cobain!
This is absolutely the best Nirvana album made. This isn't just pure grunge but when Kurt Cobain was at his best. All these songs are awesome.
Negative Creep, School, About a Girl and other classic tracks!
This was by far my favorite album. Followed by in utero and the unplugged albumV4 Comments
Shows a calmer more talented Nirvana, behind the screams you find real emotional depth, plus a outstanding cover of Bowie's 'Man Who Sold The World' in my opinion better than the original, can also be heard on the best of.
So sad that Kurt died before the album was realised it still sounds amazing and I think the man who sold the world sounds better than the bowie originalV1 Comment
For a rarities album you won't be disappointed, obviously weaker then the studio releases but still worth a listen.
Should be #3, behind Utero and With The Lights Out - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Could contain more from Bleach, but the content is amazing, no bad songs, but really should be longer, more rarities and a second disc would be more satisfying.
Live at reading has a bunch of great tracks of of bleach one off of in utero and a bunch or good songs off nevermind. It also has so much energy that it blows the listener away. Definitely pick up this record
Although not highly rated it does contain a lot of hits performed live plus rare tracks I have found nowhere else.
I should have voted this 'cause I didn't read this far down so I've already voted for "bleach"
If you love Nirvana buy, if there average to you don't, contains a few rare tracks but it's nothing special.
I close my eyes and imagine I'm at their concert when I listen to this
More tracks you won't have heard, in fact you probably don't know this one exists but for a hardcore fan it's essential.
Personally not fussed about this it's an album for money in my opinion.
