Nirvana may have been the biggest thing in the music world in the early '90s, but the trio maintained an uncommon devotion to core fans who knew them when they were still sleeping in a van. Fending off the adoration of punk-rock dabblers in the media and their audience while simultaneously welcoming stalwart underground-music supporters, Kurt Cobain did things on his own terms--until it all came crashing down. A decade after Cobain's 1994 suicide and the band's demise, With the Lights Out remains true to the ethos that defined the band and the alt-rock revolution that rose and fell with them.

Eschewing the standard hits-sprinkled-with-rarities mix, this lovingly compiled three-CD, one-DVD collection is made up almost entirely of previously unreleased selections. The handful of previously heard tracks are obscurities along the lines of the group's cover of "Here She Comes Now," recorded for a 1990 indie-rock tribute to the Velvet Underground. But it's not the B-sides and compilation oddities that define this idiosyncratic set; rather, its spirit is captured in the bedroom demos, radio performances, and sloppy amateur video recordings that catch Cobain and cohorts developing from just another punk- and metal-inspired bunch of grunge rockers pounding away in the bass player's mom's living room into a band that defined an era. --Steven Stolder

I don't know why I'm so cheap sometimes, I just figured I'd buy this box set later for cheaper I guess.. I am so impressed with this collection that I'm kind of mad at myself that I didn't just pay full price and have it all this time! If you are a hardcore Nirvana fan it is absolutely inexcusable why you wouldn't own this collection, it's disturbingly amazing. It's like having a key to go back in time and open a door of Nirvana hanging out in the studio. It feels like yesterday but it's been 20 years! Just trust me, this a must have for harcore fans, and vice versa, if you're just a studio album fan? Don't even think about it, you'll hate it and give me non helpful reviews! So there ya go people.. Enjoy!

This boxset is easily worth every penny payed for it. The occasional finished sounding tracks, and long lost gems are more than enough. Some people may complain that there aren't any later concert clips on the DVD. The DVD is supposed to give an idea of what Nirvana was before and during their entrance into fame.
I have a feeling that there are plenty of other long lost Nirvana recordings, maybe even studio finished, out there. I'm sure we'll be hearing more when Courtney Love finally overdoses on something.
You'll be listening to the CDs and watching the DVD in this set again and again if you're an in depth Nirvana fan. I'm still thouroughly enjoying the set, and you will too.

Ceux qui aiment le Nirvana du genre "Bleach" et "Incesticide" seront comblés. Plusieurs des chansons sont très rare et ne figure pas sur la fameuse collection de bootlegs "Outcestice 1 à 7. Puis en plus la qualité du son est nettement supérieure aux "Outcesticides". Le coffret offre des chansons beaucoup plus abrasives et "Bonne franquette" mais elle sont excellentes en générale. Le DVD est aussi très bon! Je ne conseil pas le coffret aux fans de Nirvana qui n'aime que l'album "Nervermind"...

If you're a die-hard fan and wish to get everything that Nirvana did, get this, but if you're just a music lover who enjoy Nirvana once in a while then get the best of...
At best it could have been a good bootlegs collection, but it's not cause most of the songs in that box-set are un-done,rough cutt or bad mix :(
What they should have done instead, is a one-cd raritees colection...

It is about time that they did this...Now we can listen to the greatest band of all time, all the time. Nirvana influenced so many other great bands and paved the way for many.
This CD is a great way to end their legacy....
