This is a great boxset, if you are a real Nirvana fan, buy it! First, in my opinion, In Utero is the best album from Nirvana and you have here a remastered version. After that, this boxset features a new vision from the album, the mixes from Steve Albini oh yeah, Albini is hated for many people, but he still rocks!
This mixes gives you another sound that makes you understand the universe of Nirvana, Cobain's "anti-industry feeling" it shows in this mixes and this is the major reason for my purchase. The boxset features too with demos and B-sides from the In Utero era, and have a DVD with the great show "Live and Loud", included material extra from the show and the two versions of the video "Heart Shaped Box". All of this in a great package with a poster and a cool book.
So, if you Dumb - Nirvana - In Utero (CD more of Nirvana, buy this great boxset. There was a problem loading comments right now. Showing 0 comments. Sort by: Newest Oldest. In Utero is by far my favorite Nirvana album.
I think Steve Albini did a wonderful job of capturing what the band actually sounded like at their peak. Something Andy Wallace's mix of Nevermind failed to do. In this version of the record I get to hear a full scope picture of what led to the album that i enjoyed so much the first time I heard it in The remasters disc is my least favorite part of this. I like the original master because it had dynamics. Something that's lost in this remaster. However, it doesn't ruin the record. It's also nice to have the B-sides right there.
Hearing Scott Litt's polished re-mix of Pennyroyal Tea is interesting, but I prefer the original mix still. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon.

Next comes the song "Heart-Shaped Box", for what I can tell as being one of the most twisted, Album), moody ways to make a love song with lyrics like 'I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black' but also gets more interested get when the hook comes in, 'Hey, wait, I've got a new complaint; forever in debt to your priceless advice", saying that I constantly complain, and no matter how great things look, I'm just focusing on the negative, this album being the last before Kurt passed, makes a lot of the lyrics of self loathing and pain, more potent.
Next comes "Dumb", where he gives a handful of depressing lyrics, with a hint that everything will be okay, then calls himself dumb, then follows up with 'I think I'm just happy'; saying that to be happy in this world you gotta be ignorant or dumb because life ain't always bliss. Next comes "Very Ape", where he acknowledges his controdictions and wears them proudly, also he says the lyrics 'out of the ground, into the sky.
Out of the sky into the ground' could be a reference to religion in the first line and a reference to suicide in the next. I also would to acknowledge the hilarious line 'if you ever need anything please don't, hesitate to ask someone else first' gets me everytime.
Next up comes "Pennyroyal tea" which I read use to be a method of abortion, which make 'come sit and drink my pennyroyal tea, distill the life that's inside of me' pretty clear. Next comes "radio friendly unit shifter" not much to say about this song, it has song great imagery, great instrumentals, some of my favorite lyrics such as 'love you for what I am not' and 'a blanket acned with cigarette burns', can't complain.
Nirvana have definitely made one of the best albums I've heard and to be honest it's hard to dispute that this album is less than phenomenal. Granted, the scene is a little different and just a bit more melodious than it was when Bleach was released, but this album returns Nirvana to their underground glory.
This album is a sad album, Dumb - Nirvana - In Utero (CD lines like "Look on the bright side is suicide" although Kobain was later noted to say that that line was there simply because it rhymed, so it had no actual meaning to it.
Sadness and death seems to be the overtone of thsi album, which is what helped to lead many to believe the verdict of suicide in his death, even with the hundreds of holes in that theory.
However, this album is strewn with a power rarely scene in many Grunge and Rock albums. In Utero is the next album to go with in your collection. Obviously this is a classic work of art In retrospect, it's an existential cry for help.
It is such a tragedy to think about where Nirvana would be now if they were still around I like a lot of bands, some more than Nirvana, but there are very few albumns that I like every song, and In Utero is one of them. The albumn continues with "Scentless Apprentice", a song going back to Nirvana's earlier punk sounds. This albumn has a great variety of sounds, and yet they all fit Nirvana. All of the songs are sad, but the two that affect me the most are "Dumb" and "All Apologies" If you have a heart at all, how can you not hear the sadness and desperation that Kurt is radiating???
I don't know ::shiver:: all I can say, if you want to know what was at the heart and soul of Nirvana and Kurt Cobain, listen to In Utero We miss you deeply, Kurt!!!
It came scratched so some of the songs didnt play Was looking for this music artist to add to my collection. Lots of listeners were disappointed, but I love this album. Very raw compared to Nevermind, but the production is still perfect. This CD is awesome! All the songs on this album are a little edgier, a little darker and a little tougher than "Bleach" and "Nevermind". This is CD is Nirvana at their best. A Masterpiece record. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries.
It came in WAY earlier than it said it was supposed to come in. It came in on September 3rd and it's supposed to be here by September 22nd-October 26th! Report abuse. The case was cracked and broken upon arrival but the cd itself and booklet inserts were left unharmed thankfully.
Happy with the quality of the album itself. Not happy about the broken case. One of the best from Nirvana. All songs are great and intense.
