1977 is the best year for me.

It probably is. It's got some really tight tracks, and I really do enjoy it, but in small doses. I appreciate it for what it is, for its cultural impact, for its place in the collective memory of a generation, but when it pops up in the top 10 on greatest albums of all time lists, that's a little ridiculous, imo. I'm still not entirely sure it's Nirvana's best.
I've never listened to Nevermind in its entirety. I've only heard its singles.

It is overrated to a degree, but it is a very solid work. There's not really anything there I skip over. The first seven songs, singles or not, are iconic to me. FWIW though, I'm not a huge fan - Nevermind is the only album of theirs I own.

I guess I'm the dinosaur who still reads liner notes and obsesses over album art and packaging. I just love having the physical product in my hands. That's the main impetus of buying vinyl for me, not the supposed sound quality difference.

I'd say there is a substantial contingent of us in B&C who almost exclusively buy physical formats. I am one of them.

I would be absolutely gutted if physical formats died.

Because there's something unfulfilling about a 'collection' of things that don't physically exist. CDs seem to be going the way of tapes as an obsolete and inferior technology, but give me a nice record collection or a shelve full of books over the digital versions

I am outraged at the lack of inclusion of spin doctors

I'll accept some share of the fault for that; they crossed my mind too. If I can mention Ned's Atomic Dustbin, then I suppose I can give the Spin Doctors some love too.

I wasn't the biggest fan, but I can't lie, I felt a twinge of excitement when I heard they were touring, playing "Kryptonite" in its entirety. And then when I saw their tour poster in Portland, ME a few days ago. I'd probably go see them if they came to town. That was an underappreciated album, even if "Two Princes" messes with my musical elitism sensibilities.

It's funny, I bought an emusic subscription in 2010 for the purpose of delving into bands that I wasn't willing to pay $15 for. Inevitably, I've enjoyed the bands I've checked out and ended up buying physical copies of a significant percentage, while constantly eyeing used bins for other stuff I intend to buy.

Why is there such a thing about thinking Nirvana sucks and that Nevermind has dated terribly and we were so stupid for liking them at the time right now? Still sounds better than anything Pearl Jam have ever released.

It's not a "thing," it's the cold, hard motherfucking truth, Bonster.

 
Nah, but seriously, Kurt even hated the production back in the day. Not surprising that people are picking on Nevermind for sounding dated and crappy now. He would probably agree. Nobody should feel embarrassed for hyping Nirvana, ever, they're a good band, but I don't care that they saved the universe or whatever. A lot of great music and a lot of shitty music was apparently made because of Nirvana, so why crown them for it? Right place, right time, right Boston riff. I live today, and today Nevermind don't sound so good. In Utero still sounds fresh and aggressive to me though (God bless you, Albini), so I listen to that one far more often.

Of course everyone needs to hear Nevermind once because it's fucking history, but I don't think there's much below the surface of Territorial Pissings or Lounge Act, and why anyone would spend their afternoons listening to them is beyond me. Multiple listens haven't changed my mind in that regard. Obviously Lithium and In Bloom rule.

Yeah, I get you. However, I heard Come As You Are on the radio not long ago and it sounded absolutely fantastic. I've always liked how deep and murky the whole album sounds.

 
Wait, I thought it was a Killing Joke riff!

Fuck Albini.

And he didn't exactly leave them with a finished product.

I was referring to Smells Like #1 On Yet Another Irrelevant Rock List, but yeah, they've copped a couple of riffs in their time. Kurt had great taste in music.

You're basically arguing that Eno and Lanois don't deserve a production credit because Lillywhite waltzed in and worked on a couple of tracks near the end. In Utero has the Albini sound all over it, not just in tone but in the performances themselves, and it's awesome. Grohl's drum tone is one of my favorites ever.
