Nirvana: In Utero

With over a decade since it's release, what do you think of In Utero. I remember when it came out a kind of disappointment being prevalent, myself included, but I just started listening to it again, and it's actually much better than I remember.

Just wondering what others think.

nirvana as a hole would not be held in the esteem they are today if cobain was still alive.

Truth.

I feel the same way about Lennon.

eh... lennon was already an established legend when he was killed. did it add to it? of course... but he had a long body of work. nirvana had a couple of years.

I think if Lennon had lived the general crappiness of his solo records would have weighed down his legacy.

Those records are bad. Paul and George make him look silly in the solo album department.

Meh, average. Some great stuff like Heart Shaped Box and Rape Me. But there's other weird crap like Tourettes & something something Unit Shifter

"Radio Friendly Unit Shifter" is one of the best song titles I've ever heard. Especially if you've read up about how the music industry works behind the scenes.

I think Utero is their best album. Parts of Nevermind are quite glossy.

As good as Nevermind. Maybe even better because of its more raw sound.

Killer drum sound on Utero.

I play The opening track on vinyl at full volume about once a year and have a bunch of my neighbours call to tell me to shut the fuck up.

You know, I don't think I ever heard that album in its entirety, so I can't compare it to Nevermind. I always did like 'Heart-Shaped Box' though.

I'm with some of y'all. Nirvana have been overly romanticized.

Good record. I think Nevermind is more consistantly good, but the better songs on In Utero are the best of Nirvana's career. Dumb, Pennyroyal Tea, All Apologies.

Off topic, the idea that Lennon's legacy is somehow seen in a brighter light because he was killed is absurd. That arguement is solid with Cobain, but not with Lennon. He wrote 'A Hard Day's Night', 'Any Time At All', 'I'll Be Back', 'No Reply', 'Help!', 'You've Got To Hide Your Love Away', 'Ticket To Ride', 'Norwegian Wood(This Bird Has Flown)', 'Nowhere Man', 'In My Life', 'I Feel Fine', 'I'm Only Sleeping', 'She Said She Said', 'And Your Bird Can Sing', 'Tomorrow Never Knows', 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds', 'A Day In The Life', 'I Am The Walrus', 'Strawberry Fields Forever', 'All You Need Is Love', 'Dear Prudence', 'Happiness Is A Warm Gun', 'Julia', 'Revolution', 'Come Together', 'I Want You(She's So Heavy)', 'Because', 'Across The Universe' and more for the Beatles and 'Imagine', 'Jealous Guy', 'Oh My Love', 'Oh Yoko', 'Working Class Hero', 'Love', 'Mother', 'Instant Karma', 'Real Love', and more for his solo records.

Look at that list. To say that after having composed that body of work, that he needed to be murdered in order to be the legend he is today is absurd.

As far as solo records go, I admittedly don't know very much of Harrison's solo stuff outside of the big hits, but I think Lennon's solo stuff blows McCartney's solo stuff out of the water.

George is/was my favourite beatle.


Anyway. Without the death of Cobain, there would not likely be any Dave Grohl solo/Foo Fighters material. Well, I shouldn't say that, it's silly to what-if the situation. Regardless, Grohl is a better musician than Cobain hands down.


As for the question at hand, I like In Utero a bit more than Nevermind. It makes little difference to me now, to be honest. I only listen to small parts of their catalogue now where I'll listen to more Soundgarden and Pearl Jam, and that seems to me testament to the mediocrity of some (most) of Cobain's work.

Some of In Utero is brilliant, while there are other parts that I could do without.

Nevermind is more consistent.

In regards to Lennon, he would have been a legend no matter what, but his death has glamourized it even more. I guarantee you if he had lived he would have had some albums that were just as bad as McCartney's in the 80's. One listen to Double Fantasy and you can figure this out. A couple of great songs surrounded by total shit.
