Format: Audio CD
Nirvana's Unplugged remains one of the band's most majestic moments. Coming hot off the heels of the noisy In Utero album, the band decided to stop into MTV's studios in New York City and play an acoustic set that completely erased any notions that they were just a simple "grunge" band. Kurt Cobain seems completely relaxed throughout, and he gives some staggeringly beautiful vocal performances. Dave Grohl plays the drums with wire brushes and demonstrates that he was just as capable of subtle shading as he was at hard-hitting fury. Krist Novoselic proves himself to be a worthwhile musician as well, playing accordion on "Jesus Doen't Want Me For a Sunbeam" in additon to playing a very solid-yet-laid back acoustic bass. Add former Germs guitarist Pat Smear to the lineup, as well as a guest appearance by the Kirkwood brothers of Tempe band the Meat Puppets, and you have all of the ingredients of that legendary November 1993 night.
All of the most obvious choices from Nevermind are featured here, "Polly," and "Something in the Way" of course, but their acoustic rendering of "On a Plain" is both relevatory and surprising, since I would not have expected them to include this song, and what's more it actually works as an acoustic! The classic "Come As You Are" is given more subtlely and emotion here, and that flanged guitar solo sounds positively stunning on an acoustic (actually he was using a half-acoustic/half-electric hybrid). The band also delivers some of the most mature songs from In Utero, too.

Format: Audio CD
This album is highly unique. When Nirvana decided to play unplugged, it showcased that they were an amazing band. If you ever see clips of the show, you will notice that it is an amazing, very intimate setting. Hearing this album shows exactly that, and you almost feel Kurt's vulnerability. It is possibly Nirvana's best performance, yet it is so difficult to compare it to others because of the differences. This recording is so special and unique, and spooky...
Nirvana really showed their softer side during this performance, which must have been difficult for the band, (especially Kurt, who was very nervous), considering their past albums including the noisy but melodic 'In Utero' and the hardcore-punk/ grunge debut record 'Bleach'. Kurt Cobain's voice shines unplugged, even in the parts where he struggles with the vocals. Kurt does Pennyroyal Tea alone, which became a defining moment for his career, and such a step foe showing a new side. That new side was that Nirvana didn't just have loud punk rock music, but that they could strip it down and show off their talent. MTV Unplugged softened their sound, and the recording is entrancing.
I have head that booking Nirvana for this show was easy. What makes Nirvana unplugged so unique is the set up of their show was completely different than any other band before them. There are basically no Nirvana hit-songs off of this album other than Come as you are (off of 'Nevermind'). Also unlike any other band that has been on MTV Unplugged, Nirvana included a variety of covers, and some one would never associate with the band. They also played their whole show without breaks, or re-doing songs, hence the show was a beautiful fifty-six minutes.
The mix of music Nirvana chose for the night was extremely eclectic.

The final sigh of the last track wrote the story of the end of Nirvana. You could see it in his face; he was tired and Nirvana was over. But I think it was for the best. He said it himself, it's better to burn out than to fade away. Well, Neil Young said it, I suppose.

There is not a bad track on the album, and it is ghostly real and engrossing on vinyl with a nice set of speakers. A must have.

Nirvana were the first loud shredding band to come out and strip there songs down to the bone and create a masterpiece. Another brave thing Kurt and the band risk'd was not only stripping the songs down but not preforming there hits from previos outings. The album has influinecced many bands and will countinue to for many years.

1) "About a girl" - "About a girl" was taken off Nirvana's first record bleach. Kurt's vocals shine beutifully and the accustic guitars sound perfect. 10/10

2) "Come as you are" - "Come as you are" is one of the rare hits on the unpugged session. Although it dous not blend as well as the studio version its still classic. Emotion kicks in when you hear Kurt sing "And I swear that I dont have a gun/no I dont have a gun." 8.5/10

3) "Jesus dont want me for a sunbeam" - This is a Vaselines cover written by Eugene Wilson. Ive learned to love the track and Chello and string instruments are beutiful. 10/10

4) "The man who sold the world" - This is a David Bowie song and as a fan of Bowie I was interestid to see how Nirvana could pull this off. Well sure enough Cobain pulls it off with ease and sounds like he could have written it! 10/10

5) "Pennyroyal tea" - "Pennyroyal Tea" is possibly my favorite Nirvana song (refering to the studio version) Although like "Come as you are" it dousent work perfect many argue its the best track on the album. 7/10

6) "Dumb" - Was the only song on "In Utero" that wasnt a Roaring screaming guitar mess (although "In Utero" has its moments) and sounds generly the same but is evana better. 10/10

7)"Polly" - The second half of the album starts with "Polly" taken from "Nevermind". Not a song that stands out but is defently strong.
