Product Description

Amazon.ca

And so, in the fiscally dark years between Nevermind and the much-delayed In Utero, Geffen Records cobbled together a pile of Nirvana b-sides and out-takes, and were so glad they had something to bleed the hungry grunge-hordes dry with that they allowed Cobain to give it the poisonous title Incesticide. As cash-ins go, it's one of the more essential ones: obviously there simply aren't that many Kurt Cobain songs in existence, and the inclusion of the incredibly rare single "Sliver" and the insanely catchy "Mexican Seafood" will gladden any Nirvana fan's heart. The 50s' pop parody of "Hairspray Queen" reminds us that--hey!--Kurt was a funny guy too, and "Aero Zeppelin" and "Big Long Now" would hardly look out of place on either Nevermind or In Utero. And the liner-notes--a Cobain-penned rant begging all jocks, homophobes, racists and sexists not to buy his records--are a piece of rock history in their own right. --Caitlin Moran

5.0 out of 5 stars Clean Quiet Vinyl Nov. 3 2011
By RyanJ
Format:LP Record
Since this is for Amazon's website, I will start by saying that I am not particularly a fan of ordering brand new vinyl sight unseen from an online retailer because you never know how it will end up being packaged. I have ordered directly from label webpages for new albums, but this is the first from Amazon. As such, I felt it was in fact relatively well packaged, but given the incredibly delicate nature of the vinyl medium, it arrived with a moderately heavy corner bends. Once again, this is partially due to the unforgiving and delicate nature of vinyl. That said, the package was relatively sturdy. Now, on to the vinyl.

This is in fact the Original Recordings Group pressing of the vinyl. At the time of purchase, I think it was considerably cheaper than it is selling for now, which was an absolute steal, for the 25 dollar vicinity. Which was another reason for going with the Amazon order instead of purchasing at my local record shop, they are asking 45 dollars The album comes in a loose plastic cover with the perforated rip off so you can keep it in the packaging for safe storage. The cover itself is of the very high quality matte finish which is excellent for a reissue, as I am sure the original would not have been printed on such fine stock paper. It has a very nice poly sleeve, and a printed sheet for liner notes.

The vinyl itself is high quality 180 gram vinyl. Some of the flattest 180gram vinyl I have seen, in fact. A lot of new vinyl these days is pressed on heavy weight vinyl, but is still wavy or noisy. They used the good stuff on this issue! As well, this has a great quality remaster with attention paid to every track. For such a lengthy album, this must have surely been a feat for the vinyl engineers. Overall a great issue! Must have, and much easier to obtain than an original copy.

3.0 out of 5 stars I agree with the other guy July 27 2005
Format:Audio CD
yah seriously don't get this unless you've heard all the other Nirvana albums. I was quite disapointed and understand why it's a b-side album...First of all it sounds too much like light punk for my taste, when i listen to Nirvana i want to hear some true blooded grunge. The only songs that i really love are Anuerysm(best on the album) and Aero Zeppelin...Anuerysm espeacilly because to be honest it's one of my favorite songs from Nirvana.
Anyways, yes please get In Utero, Nevermind, and Bleach before this. Overall i don't think this is worth 3 stars but since it's Nirvana it get's some extra points ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite Nirvana CD July 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
though i have an obsession with all of nirvana's albums( Bleach, Nevermind, In Utero, Unplugged)and originally "got into" nirvana by way of nevermind, i have to say that incesticide is a beautiful album and my favorite in the nirvana catalog. although the cd doesn't have the great singles or individual songs as their two studio efforts, like all pieces of art, you have to view the cd as a whole-and as a whole, from start to finish it's solid.something not usally attributed to a collection of b-sides, outtakes and covers-but let's face it, nirvana is an unusal band. nirvana plays much more like a new wave band than a punk band here, and probobly would have been the direction nirvana would have went after In utero. awsome skin-bashing by Dave Grohl on Aneurysm. stand tracks are the afoementioned aneurysm, dive, sliver, aero zeppplin, big long now, and my personal favorite which people always overlook: Beeswax

4.0 out of 5 stars Disturbing Lyrics and Hidden Gems July 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Incesticide" shows the very excentric side of Kurt but it also shows the more "punky" side of the band. This CD showcases the band's earlier pieces with very simple lyrics and it also shows the hidden b-side gems.
The "simple-yet-catchy-melody" songs are the first category. shows on tracks 1 and 3, "Dive" and "Stain".
Then there are the songs from "Incesticide" that most people know since they were on the "Nirvana" album. These are "Sliver" and "Been a Son".
Then there are the covers. There's "Turnaround" originally by Devo and "Molly's Lips" and "Son of a Gun" originally by The Vaselines.
Then there is a sped-up version of "Polly" that really ruins the version that most of us know from "Nevermind".
There are weird songs and weird songs with disturbing lyrics that I can assure you "Nevermind" fans would not dig. I always skip "Mexican Seafood" because as a 12 year old I don't think that my parents would approve me listening to it. "Beeswax", "Downer", "Mexican Seafood" and "Hairspray Queen" are amongst them. I didn't like the band as much when they were hard core in the early days.
Ah, finally-the hidden gems. The last three songs on this album are amazing, especially "Aneurysm". I love that song! The beat is so catchy, the lyrics have a very punk rock attitude to them. "Aero Zeppelin" is great and so is "Big Long Now".
I would call this album more interesting than wonderful. It really shows how the band progressed from that punk band from Seattle to the mainstream artists they were since "Nevermind". I would reccomend this album but I would suggest purchasing "In Utero" and "Nevermind" first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for the Dale demos June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
And now for my somwhat-disjointed review. Bleach and Insecticide are my favorite Nirvana albums. Due to their lack of total melody, it makes for a challenging listen. Thank God the songs off Insecticide aren't as formulaic as Nirvana's two major label studio releases. Kurt tried to recapture the natural lo-fi sound of Bleach and attempted to apply it to In Utero... by spending thousands upon thousands of dollars. Sorry, but there's no replicating a lack of money, and a plethora or ingenuity that you once had, buddy. The Dale demos on side B are the only songs I never tire of. Beeswax, Downer, Mexican Seafood, Hairspray Queen, Aero Zepplin, oh how I love thee. Though they're pretty low-budget they're still more complex than anything from Nevermind and In Utero. Big Long Now is good to play in the background if you don't want to listen to deafening silence. I'm not too keen on the songs from the Peel sessions except for Turnaround. Aneurysm is the ultimate in slicked-up rock music posing a punk. What's with everyone's love affair with Dive and Sliver? I just don't feel whatever everyone else loves about those two songs.
