Good one! Long awaited release at last is out! "With the Lights out" truly talks about the life of Nirvana. If you are a commercial listener, who enjoys "Smells Likes Teen Spirit", this is not for you!
If you are a hardcore fan-don't think twice. Go, grab it now!!
This album captures the essence of Nirvana much better that any other release. I see their earlier albums as barely breaking the surface of Nirvana. "With the Lights out" allows the listener to experience how great a band they really were!
The disc 1 may be annoying with some bad sound in the background. But as a true Nirvana fan, I'm sure, you are going to enjoy the raw grunge. Of course Nirvana was still tuning its sound, like any other new band.
Disc 3 is the actual professional Nirvana that we see around! So emotional Kurt was when he sang "You Know You're Right". You will go crazy!
"Do Re Mi" is the highlight of this set. Recorded only weeks before Kurt's death, this is a masterpiece. His voice is rough on it. Its one of the greatest songs Kurt had even written, and it deserves to be heard
The DVD and box set has the studio performance of "Seasons in the Sun", with Kurt on drums, Dave on bass, and Novoselic on guitar. Kurt is smiling! It's hard to see Kurt smiling! Man, It's definitely sad and sweet!
Over all a must buy and 5/5.
