Product Description

Product Description

In Utero is a howling, defiantly punkish recording, an unsentimental throwback to an era of garage band epiphanies and raw, unadorned rock and roll. Nirvana rails against both alternative conformity and polished notions of commercial rock with the anthemic rage of true outcasts. Engineer-producer Steve Albini has enabled Nirvana to replicate the savage immediacy of their live sound--the sound of a band without commercial aspirations or pretensions, just thrashing away for the sheer joy of noise. Pressed on black vinyl. Universal.


Overwhelmed by sudden success, Nirvana promised to take a harsher, more abrasive route on their second major-label release. Enlisting Chicago-based noise maven Steve Albini (of Big Black fame), Kurt Cobain and company succeeded in producing a record that was violent, disillusioned, and deeply moving. Every song reads like a commentary on the cost of fame ("Serve the Servants") and the unhealthy relationship between performer and fan ("Milk It"). Of course, they might all simply be about Courtney Love. Gossip aside, there is no denying the sheer power of Cobain's songwriting, his singing, and the band's amazing, visceral power. Cobain even manages a John Lennon-like mantra at the end of the heart-wrenching "All Apologies." "All in all is all we are," he intones repeatedly, only for Cobain that's no consolation. --Percy Keegan

When 'Nevermind' hit the charts in 1991, 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' was already the anthem to a lost generation as many would say. The greatest thing about 'Nevermind' was that it brought the band onto the main stage and allowed the inevitable, 'In Utero.'
Like Hollywood sequels, the good are rare. In this case, 'In Utero' takes good and throws it out of the ballpark. It's everything the first album was and wasn't, all at the same time. In this case, you have the action figure packed riffs that hook you and entice each listener to each song. Don't tell me 'Heart Shaped Box' doesn't send volts down your spine! Needless to say, lyrically, the album sheds away from changing youth, to just talking about it. There are several kep points in the album, that always amaze me.
'Serve the Servants', arguably one of their greatests songs, makes a joke upon themselves and the culture following. It's extraordinary to find one song that culminates everything the band is. From the raw sound, to the campy yet intricate lyrics of Cobain, and to the mood, we come to view Nirvana more than a band, but as a social phenomenon.
'All Apologies' and 'Pennyroyal Tea', both quiet and timid in nature, but far from peaceful. It's this confusing, albeit tricky choice of songwriting that has everyone go, 'Oh...' and then finally realize the meaning leaving them with, 'Oh!' Listen to the tracks and then really listen to them! See the images you see and the ones meant to be seen. It's a trip.
'Rape Me' and 'Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle' are a darker 'Date Rape' and a historic horror fest, respectively. On one hand we see the terrors we read about and on the other, we see a story we never really knew. It's bold and it's sound takes on different dimensions, something bands use a lot today.

Nirvana had a tough task at hand's when they had to follow up to the runaway hit

"Nevermind". But Kurt didnt care what anyone else thought of the album and Nirvana give's us a much , much heavier and rawer sounding album. So is it not as good as "Nevermind"? NO. It's way better!

1) Serve The Servent's - An awsome intro! One of the lighter more catchey ub-beat

song's on "In Utero". 5/5

2) Scentless Apprentice - Here's where you get the message "O.K. this not going to

sound like Nevermind". Nirvana's heaviest song by far and is defiantly brilliant! Also notable is the exelent drumming by Dave Grohl! 5/5

3) Heart Shaped Box - Wow! The first single off the album and what a mind blowing

song it is! Kurt's vocal's are so real on this one! 5/5

4) Rape Me - This song is the catchiest on the album! Great guitar hook's! Ovbiously

though this song stird up alot of conterversy but Kurt didn't mean it in a bad way!


5) Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge - I like it. Catchey but not "Nevermind" sounding catchey. Good base by Krist. 4.5/5

6) Dumb - Creepy , Creepy song! The organ is just so errie. Listen to the brilliantly

written line's "My heart is broke/But I have some glue/Let me InHale/And Mend It with you" and you will see what I mean! 5/5

7) Very Ape - Very short but is so effective! Most people dislike it but give it a try!

It's so moving! 5/5

8) Milk It - Oh man do I love it! One of my favorite's! It's very heavy and is so dark

and scary. I mean listen to the line where Kurt is yelping out "Look On The bright Side Suicide" and where he scream's "Doll Steak/Test Meat". Wow , what a performance!

Format: Audio CD
What makes this album so great is the band's ability to convey emotion behind simple melodies and what some might call shoddy guitar work. Despite the fact that Kurt can't play like Jimi Hendrix his lyrical abilities are second only to Lennon/McCartney and Grohl can bash a drum as well as Jon Bonham with just as much fury. Krist Novoselic's bass is competent and ties the package together nicely and shows the bands parts adding much more to the whole.
This isn't watered down like Nevermind so newer fans might not take to the harsh sound and Cobain's gruff, growling vocals. The album altogether deals with disillusionment moving further away from the angst of earlier works. Disillusionment with family, disillusionment with fans and critics, and disillusionment with life. This is the final work of a man who was at the end of his rope and his back to the wall.
People new to Nirvana should check out Nevermind, for those of you who want an album's worth of the disenfranchised voice of a generation and the best piece of work of the 90's this is for you.
R.I.P Kurt Cobain

It is a much harsher album compared to the last two albums. This one does contain the better lyrics in it, but I just think "Nevermind" is slightly better. The songs are:
Serve the servents: This is a good opener. There are some good verses, but a not-so-good chorus. 4/5
Scentless apprentice: Weird lyrics. It's one of the heavier tracks on the album. Massive shouting in it. 4/5
Heart-shaped box: Probably the best track on the album. Great lyrics and an unbeatable chorus. 5/5
Rape me: Another good track. The intro sounds a bit like the intro to "Smells like teen spirit". You think this is goanna be a soft song, but it gets louder. 5/5
Frances farmer will have her revenge on Seattle: This is a very catchy song. It's just a bit too long. 4.5/5
Dumb: Very relaxing. 5/5
Very ape: Quite a fast-paces song, but it can get a bit boring, and it's too short (1:55). 3.5/5
Milk it: This a favourite. A very underrated song. The verses can be quite creepy, but I love the shouting in the middle. 5/5
Pennyroyal tea: This is another good track. I think this chorus is very catchy. 5/5
Radio friendly unit shifter: The chorus is ok, but the rest of it isn't that good. 3/5
Tourettes: Very short and very fast. It can be quite hard to sing. Contains really long vocal shouts. 4/5
All apologies: This is quite good when it starts off, but it does get worse. It's another relaxing track. 4/5
Gallons of rubbing alcahol through a strip (extra track): Very silent on the first verse, but the singing gets louder. This song is very long (7:33). Once this song reaches the end it gets slightly better, but it's still quite a boring song. 2/5
So, that's basically Nirvana's last album, and probably their best acomplished. I just think "Nevermind" is a tiny bit better.
