Amazon needs to be more descriptive on what the product is they are selling. I purchased this album and it is in 45! My turntable is high end and does not have the little button to switch speeds. I have to remove plate and put band on the different gearing. Not a big deal but it is when your spinning all night.
It is not the first time this has happened. No mention of it being a 45 at all. Just a description of how it sounds etc. Being form that era and nearly playing a cd out....I know how it sounds.

I would rate this as a must have if it weren't in 45 speed.

Nirvana was not talented or interesting or good in any way, shape, or form - they are not in the top 10 best bands ever, top 20, top 50, or top 100 best bands ever - they were not revolutionary in any way, shape, or form - they were merely rip-offs of Green River (formed by the members of Pearl Jam in the early 80s) & Soundgarden...
If Nirvana didnt break the Seattle scene, one of the other bands wouldve done it about 1 month later, the other bands just werent in as big of a rush to be as corporate as Nirvana was, to break the scene first

In Utero is not challenging in the sense that it's art (because it ain't), it's challenging in the sense that it's hard to fathom how something so calculated & corporate could've gotten past the public's sensibilities to tell whether or not something is genuine. In Utero isn't bold, interesting, or inventive. It's just music that should've been done better. It's so bland and lifeless, but I suppose it wass Cobain's style to bore listeners to death. He's so repetitive! After each "solo" or bridge in every song, you might as well change the track, because something from a previous part is the song is repeated thirty times. All Apologies has "All in all is all we all are" repeated 27 times! Oh, and what's all this supposed controversy I still hear about Rape Me? The song isn't explicit, but then again, it's not enlightening either. Tell me, how is saying "Rape me again and a gain" a "bold anti-rape statement"? From all looks, the song appears to be encouraging it, no matter what "Kurdt" says. But overall, Rape Me is so lyrically and musically tame that Cobain could've called it Rate Me instead, and it wouldn't have made a difference. The only song on In Utero that most people will automatically love is Heart-Shaped Box. They might like All Apologies, that is, if they can stand three straight minutes of Kurt droning "All in all...". The rest of the songs are throwaways, but worst song has got to be Scentless Apprentice. You can't even make out any of the words, and yet there are so many lyrics to the song!

Kurt Cobain's idea of hell is probably watching people still sitting around continuing to rave about him and his band. He didn't want that in life, and in death I'm sure he still doesn't. He didn't think he was worth all the hype you freaks give him, (...). There are several qualification for Sainthood, and one of the main ones is to perform two miracles. Cobain couldn't even perform a concert right. He never did anything more than promote suicide by doing himself in. If anybody out there still thinks he did teens a favor in any way, they are sick. The name Kurt Cobain is synonymous with suicide. What's the first thing you think of when somebody mentions him? Suicide. His death is more memorable than any of his music, and that is why he "lives on". You don't forget the selfishness of somebody like Kurt Cobain who killed himself. He found comfort in sadness because it's easy to be selfish coward and wallow in your own self-pity. He should have been grateful for his money and fame, but nothing can satisfy a junkie. His In Utero record is practically a rough draft of his final suicide note. There are references to death and suicide in nearly every song. With these lyrics: "Look on the bright side; suicide" (Milk It), "I miss the comfort in being sad" (Frances Farmer), "Hate me/Waste me" (Rape Me), "I'm buried up to my neck" (Very Ape), "I am married and buried" (All Apologies), "Throw down your umbilical noose" (Heart-Shaped Box), "Distill the life that's inside of Me" (Pennyroyal Tea), and "I hate myself and I want to die" (I Hate Myself and I want to Die).

I never liked Nirvana. Just what kind of a revolution was Kurt Cobain trying to start? Surely he couldn't have tried to start a revolution of peace and importance, because the only thing he succeeded in sparking was a revolution of trend-following, flannel-wearing, faux-suicidal couch potatoes. And I mean that. Just take a look at your teenage son or daughter, and if they're anything near the mainstream, typical teen, they're up in their room pretending to mope and whine about how "bad" their life is because they didn't get their $20 allowance this week. It's sad to realize that all the kids out there with potential are the ones who are outcast. In the youth society that supposedly says being different is OK, it's sad to see that it's all a lie. The main thing teens have learned from Kurt's drug-addled, self-absorbed "teachings": It's only cool to be different when it's convenient, and also when it's temporary and you can change back to what's considered "normal" in mainstream society.

I could go on and on, But i doubt it would all fit...I've always hated this band, They were always overrated..Please, listen to something BETTER and get away from this pop garbage..Kurdt was not a god, I am sorry..Kurdt did not write eye opening lyrics..The music was bland, catchy, but bland..They did not start a revolution..Maybe in the pop world, But thats it..Nothing i listen to, Nothing with style..Nothing with merit, Just this popular crap that doesent go anywhere..Just radiofriendly riffs with radiofriendly lyrics..Let's all be happy Kurdt shot himself.

I don't know why SOOOO many teens these days think it's so cool to like Nirvana , like what are they one drugs? , yeah they probably are or maybe they think Kurt Kobain is so cool . Kurt Kobian was an idiot and shot heroine in his veins too much he f*cked himself over. The guy had a total problem and therefore he ain't cool at all. The music is a bunch of annoying sounds which I personally can't stand , I listened to this album at a party , whoa it sucked. Nirvana really suck

I gave this 1 star because ive only heard 1 song off the album
I didnt hear the song that well, it was blasting in a furnace
Running into telephone polls
This album just isnt very good, ive only heard 1 song off the album though, but if i may quote some lyrics
"Hay! What?!
Ive got a rude compliment
Only looking out of my heart shaped box!"
THose lyrics Cobain wrote arent very good, someone needs to tell this guy to get his head together

Nirvana for the most part was over-rated and Kurt Cobian was overwhelmed by his instant success. Heart Shaped Box is a great song, but the video is one of the most controversial videos in the 90s. All Apologies is another great song. However, having two great songs on an album doesn't make this album a masterpiece. Not a chance. In Utero failed to measure up to their previous effort- but even that album produced the hit, Smells Like Teen Spirit. Nirvana is over-rated.

Nirvana overshadowed heavy metal and Nirvana just doesn't make the grade with this album.

This is one album to avoid.
