Product Description

Amazon.ca

Essentially a greatest-hits collection with one previously unreleased song, "You Know You're Right," and producer Scott Litt's 1994 remix of "Pennyroyal Tea," Nirvana the album is nevertheless a welcome addition to the band's canon. Crisp, elegant liner notes by Rolling Stone writer David Fricke put us squarely in Kurt Cobain's mindset as he entered a Seattle studio in January 1994--a full two days later than expected--to record what would be his final session with Nirvana. The resulting "You Know You're Right" locates Cobain at the apogee of his disenfranchisement with tongue nevertheless planted firmly in cheek. Bawdy, raucous, and venomous, "You Know You're Right" could have been lifted from Nevermind. A mix of tracks from that album ("Smells Like Teen Spirit," "Come as You Are," "Lithium," and "In Bloom") sits opposite stuff from early EPs and the Bleach disc ("About a Girl," "Been a Son," and "Sliver"), plus two from the MTV Unplugged sessions and several more from In Utero. Not the Nirvana treasure chest we hoped for, but solid nonetheless. --Kim Hughes

"Nirvana" is a fitting title to a fitting compilation of some of Nirvana's best songs. (What else could you call it? "Milk It"?)
The tracklisting is superb: Starting us off with the last recorded studio song by the whole band, "You Know You're Right", it kicks off a very strong set of songs with something new for the longtime Nirvana fan. We then continue chronologically by order of release, starting with "About A Girl" from "Bleach" and ending with tracks from the divinely underrated "MTV Unplugged in New York".
However, there are three questionable track choices. First, What is "Been A Son" doing on this "hits" package? Though it's a decent song - and one of Kurt's most intriguing lyric - it's far from being one of the popular Nirvana entries. A far more suitable selection from the early years would have been "Love Buzz", considering it's historical significance - it was the band's first official single, as well as the song that put Nirvana on the map with Sub Pop.
Second, why the "Unplugged" version of "All Apologies" as opposed to the superior "In Utero" studio cut? Though the "Unplugged" take, like the rest of that album, was sweet and intimate, the "In Utero" version is all that with an unharnessed edge.
Lastly, where is "Verse Chorus Verse"? True, it was never on an album or released as a single, but this prized gem from the "In Utero" sessions was all over the radio at the close of 1993. Much more a hit than some choices on the compilation, it has been sadly omitted.
For the pre-existing Nirvana fan, there are some new treats besides the inclusion of "You Know You're Right". "Nirvana" also touts the re-mixed versions of "Heart Shaped Box" (from the single) and "Pennyroyal Tea" (which was previously unreleased).

Not to much to say here. This is a best of Nirvana and Im sure we all know who Nirvana is by now!

It's got the basic's ("Smells Like Teen Spirit" , "Heart Shaped Box , "In Bloom") and a few track's that some people may not be familiar with ("About A Girl" , "Been A Son" , "Dumb") making it a good collection for the casual fan who just want's a simple best of , or someone complety new looking to get into there music.

The new track "You Know Your Right" is nothing special! If this is where Nirvana was

heading then they were CLEARLY running out of idea's! Kurt can write so much better! Catchey at best.

Overall their is 4 track's off "Nevermind" , one off "Bleach" , 4 off "In Utero" , 2 off

"Incesticide" and 2 off "MTV Unplugged In New York". Oh and of course the one new

track.

5 star's because every song is awsome and Im not going to count "You Know Your Right" because it is not officially on one of their album's.

Reccomended

Cheers!
