5.0 out of 5 stars Doll Steak Test Meat Feb. 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Nirvana's 10th single (including split singles) and first single released off of their fourth album, In Utero.
Heart Shaped Box is a classic Nirvana song displaying the mellowness that Nirvana is capable of mixed with the harsh sound of the chorus, similar to so many other Nirvana songs we know and love. Over all it's a relatively mellow song for this trio, but a powerful one filled with the random lyrics that somehow convey a powerful meaning.
The screaming, angst ridden voice of Kurt Cobain while Dave Grohl's drums create the unique qualities of this song. The subtleness of Krist Novoselic at the bass complete the excellent blend that constructs Milk It. A song where you sense an awkwardness about Cobain's guitar that mellows down and builds up into a head banging, body thrashing, and noise filled Nirvana song.
Marigold is a Dave Grohl original with the music and lyrics both written by him. A gentle, yet surprisingly depressing song with Dave singing vocals and drumming. Simple but excellent. Marigold was originally recorded in 1990 and released in 1992 on the out of print cassette, Pocketwatch. This is one of Grohl's best.
Be wary of promotional copies of this single that are floating around. If you are interested in more information visit: [...] and go to the "The Collectors' Nirvana Discography" or "The DN Song Guide." Two very useful sources of information.

5.0 out of 5 stars A+!! Jan. 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
As an avid Nirvana fan, I am always excited to find a new singly or hear an unknown track. I can most definitely say that Heart Shaped Box is the best single I have discovered. With three songs on the cd, it starts off with, of course, Heart Shaped Box, one of my personal favorite Nirvana songs. It has absolutely brilliant lyrics. Second is Milk It, another creative song from Nirvana's most artistic record, "In Utero". Lastly is Marigold. This song is such a great song. This song is written and sung by Dave Grohl its a little like a breath of fresh air and a preview of what was to come for this amazing musician. Kurt and Dave basically flip-floped jobs, and it's awesome, [Kurt Cobain on drums]All in all its and awesome single well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars The one single that showcases Cobains lyrical genius... Jan. 23 2003
By Matt Skeels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Heart-Shaped Box:
Subtly opening with a single guitar strumming, the frontman for Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, exposes his sensitivity. The soft lyrics seem to echo from a dream. A hazey world near the end of Cobain's demise. The video even shows the band in a bizarrely odd fantasy landscape. Twisted trees, and an old man on a cross wearing Santa's cap, a little girl in a white klu klux clan-like outfit skipping through the poppy fields. An obese woman dressed in an anatomical skin-tight outfit, adorned in feathery wings. At the end Cobain and company can be seen at the side of the old man's death bed. Patiently waiting for him to pass on. The energy here seems unrestful, eager, and aggravated.

All this imagery is what you get with the song Heart-Shaped Box. Flagrantly good lyrics entrance you, for example:

"Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet,"

"Cut myself on Angel's hair and baby's breath."

"Broken hymen of your highness, I'm left black."

"Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back."

This is just too good. The song reverbrates between melancholy, and fierce aggression, classic Nirvana style, but with the rough guitar flavoring that In Utero has to offer. In my opinion, this is the best that Nirvana has to offer. It encapsulates Cobain's emotion, his moody ups & downs, and Nirvana's awesome artistry. Dave Grohl excellently balances the song with his gentle drumming, and then his ear pounding resonation for the decidely aggressive parts. Krist Novoselic also submits what Cobain calls (and I paraphrase), "a really good bass line".

The second song on this disc, "Milk It", was often quoted by Cobain to be the future sound of Nirvana. With a more jaded sound, very rough, tired, and abbrasive... this song goes a long way to represent the entire album and Cobain's mood during those times. The whole song teeters on topics of mortality and conditions of the human body with lyrics like "Obituary birthday, you're scent is still here, in my place of recovery."

A little jewel awaits you on the final track of this single. Dave Grohl usurps Cobain, a hint of the future at that time. Grohl takes to the guitar and microphone, revealing one of his laundry room studio creations. "Marigold" is his mellow and sleepy masterpiece. The song seems inspired by the present Cobain, and bellows forth likeness to songs of Nirvana like "Dumb" or "Polly", but with a more softer inclination.

This is without a doubt the best single from In Utero. Heart-Shaped Box is a masterpiece to be rivaled with.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nirvana great plus an early Foo June 29 2000
By Bret Baber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The reason for my title is simple once you buy this great cd, Dave Grohl has a song he wrote, sings, and plays guitar for while Kurt does the drum. This alone is reason enough to buy this cd. Heart-shaped Box is a great song, and so is Milk It with top of the quality Cobain lyrics. Like the person below, the cover is also a great reason to have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Foo Fighters' Prequel Overshadowed Jan. 7 2006
By R. Banerjee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you just want "Heart Shaped Box", you're best off just buying "In Utero". The first b-side is also on In Utero.

The important thing on this album is its weakest track. Dave Grohl's only composition to be released under Nirvana, "Marigold", is on this single. Unfortunately, the song was placed behind two of Kurt Cobain's strongest compositions.

"Heart Shaped Box", along with "Rape Me", "All Apologies", and "Pennyroyal Tea", is one of the jewels of In Utero.

It's a better deal to buy the Singles Box if you want b-sides

4.0 out of 5 stars Pre-Foo Fighters Dave Grohl! May 6 1998
By Shaun (zedtah@earthlink.net) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The great thing about this CD isn't necessarily the Nirvana songs. Heart Shaped Box can be found on In Utero (a must buy), and can be heard in several different collections, live recordings, etc. The gem on this single is the song "Marigold", written and performed by Dave Grohl. Although technically a Nirvana song, Marigold is a good example of Dave Grohl's musical ability, and a soft, eerie sneak preview of the Foo Fighters to come. Buy it.
