Product Description

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

After 8 years of nothing after a long, protracted court battle over rights, Nirvana's greatest hits cd is released. It's got everything any Nirvana lover would need. It's got the unforgetable unbeatable songs like, "Smells Like Teen Spirit" "Come As You Are" "Lithium" "Heart-Shaped Box" "Rape Me" "Dumb" and the new single "You Know You're Right." The new single was recorded 3 months before Kurt took his own life. it's unimaginable what the song could have been if it had been headlining a new album but all we have is the fresh and digestable "You Know You're Right." it's got a verse like In Utero and a chorus like Nevermind. It's got an erie beginning that sets you in the mood for the rest to jump in your face with a chorus that'll remind you of the days when old nirvana was new and a breakdown in the end that blows your mind. Also in this collection is a remix version of "Pennyroyal Tea." the only noticeable difference is an added guitar part at the end. A surprise to me was that the cd ends with the guys jamming to David Bowe's "The Man Who Sold The World" in New York from their acoustic cd. It's ironic that one of the songs on their greatest hits record is not their own song. But overall their greatest hits does them justice. It might not have great songs like "Drain You" or "Anuerysm" or "On A Plain" but it's still a supurb collection. 9/10

"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).

"Nirvana," the long awaited best of collection, offers a plethora of various Nirvana tracks that will offer a little something for both the novice fan, as well as the seasoned veteran. It is a good retrospective that should be included in any serious music fan's record collection.
Most of the songs are re-mastered for optimum sound quality, which only really shows on the Sub Pop released songs. As I said, this collection of Nirvana songs is good, but not great. Just like "The Muddy Banks of The Wishkah," this album is way too short. Clocking in at just under 50 minutes, with only 14 songs, this album is a little bit of a let down. There could have been at least another 25 minutes of music on this CD, including other great Nirvana songs, singles, and rarities.
The track listing is as follows:
1. You Know You're Right
2. About Agirl
3. Been A Son (Steve Fisk Version)
4. Sliver
5. Smells Like Teen Spirit
6. Come As You Are
7. Lithium
8. In Bloom
9. Heart-Shaped box
10. Pennyroyal Tea (Scott Litt Mix)
11. Rape me
12. Dumb
13. All Apologies (Unplugged)
15. The Man Who Sold The World (David Bowie Cover, Unplugged)
Most Nirvana fans will already have most of these songs on the original Nirvana albums, this collection's strong selling point is the Newly Released "You Know You're Right," Original Version of "Been A Son," And the Single Version of "Pennyroyal Tea."
It is nice to have "You Know You're Right" on an official release, and it is good to have a retrospective of Nirvana songs to play without constantly changing CD's.....

Eight years after Cobain's death, Kris Noveselic, David Grohl, and Courtney Love finally mange come to some sort of agreement and release NIRVANA, which is a greatest hits compilation. The biggest news about NIRVANA is its inclusion of "You Know You're Right," which is the last studio song Nirvana recorded. This is an excellent song, though why they open the record with it is beyond me. It should have been at the end, because the rest of NIRVANA is sequenced chronologically.
The problem with NIRVANA is, with only having three albums and a large number of b-sides to draw from, it still misses the boat. Courtney Love made it pretty obvious she wanted a hit album like The Beatles' ONE record. The Beatles had a very large number of hit singles. Recording for seven years, they scored twenty-seven number one hits. There was a very clear criteria to determine what made it onto One and what didn't. Whatever didn't top the charts didn't make it. For the consumer, this was a good criteria to assemble a best-of. ONE ran just under 80 minutes.
Nirvana, on the other hand, didn't have the same criteria to go by. Some of Nirvana's best material never made it big on the charts, though they're acknowledged classics. Each of their three albums, plus the B-side collection and MTV UNPLUGGED, have their own sonic textures and vibes. Nirvana's body of work works much better in the context of albums, because each of their three albums have very distinct personalities.
So what does all this mean to NIRVANA? It has a difficult job before it, and unfortunately, it fails. NIRVANA does not capture the essence of Nirvana. The material that does make it onto the album can't be faulted as obvious candidates for a best-of compilation.
