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.
