Best Nirvana Albums
The Top Ten
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.
This is number 1 due to its popularity and nothing more its actually the weakest Nirvana album excluding Live and Complication albums only about 1/3 of it is what I would say is worth listening to while the other 2/3 is either forgettable, alright or just awful (Endless, Nameless) so listen to all of their albums before voting for this one even the band members hated this album - christangrant
Fantastic album again, cannot be knock pure gold!
I think its only this popular because of the naked baby
That's probably something holding it back, even though it's the most popular grunge rock album - Skullkid755
Although I love Nevermind, In Utero is one of the most gripping albums that has ever graced Music. Unforgiving and Unbelievably depressed, In Utero is the album their masterpiece, an Immense album that dwells darkly into the psyche of Kurt Cobain, making his death all the more painful. Nevermind set them up for Perfection, and In Utero capitalized on that promise.
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
Better than In Utero and BleachV 4 Comments
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.
This was by far my favorite album. Followed by in utero and the unplugged album
This album is their 2nd best nice and Raw sound - christangrantV 6 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 original
Best live performance. ever. R.I.P. Kurt...
For a rarities album you won't be disappointed, obviously weaker then the studio releases but still worth a listen.
My personal favorite. This album is everything grunge was meant to be: Raw, nihilistic, and just a good album overall. I understand that Nevermind is seen as the best by many, but if you want less commercial strip-downs, this is where it's at.
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.
