Looking back on the whole era, there were about 30 grunge albums that were more popular than this one was. Most likely because this was released before the scene exploded. But when I think of my personal favorite, it's "Louder Than Love". More than "Dirt", "Nevermind", and "Ten", to me, this is the epitome of grunge. It's a little metal, a little punk, and big, loud, and meaty. Songs like "Ugly Truth" and "Loud Love" are just mindblowing, and "Hands All Over" doesn't just rock, but preaches environmental awareness. Not every track on here is a winner, but front to back it's awesome. At least 3 of these songs are on "A-Sides", their best of album.
