Product Description

Ten Years after Kurt Cobain's Death, the Greatest Hits of Nirvana is Finally Ready to Land! features a Great Selection of Some of Nirvana's Biggest Songs, this Special Australian Version also features the Special Bonus Track "Where Did You Sleep Last Night".


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

"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).

It's hard to believe that Kurt Cobain has been gone for ten years now. Listening to this "Best-Of" Nirvana CD, on the ten-year anniversary of Cobain's tragic suicide, I'm reminded quite plainly of what a musical genius Kurt was, and how pioneering Nirvana were. Kurt & his two partners in crime, bassist Krist Novoselic and drummer Dave Grohl, turned the music business inside out with their powerful, trailblazing, *passionate* rock music, and they finally kicked those pathetic hairspray/metal bands right off the map. There will never be another voice & songwriter like Cobain, and there will never be another Nirvana, which is sad.But what does remain of Kurt & company, and what WILL be their legacy, is the music they did create, and "Nirvana" is a brilliant overview of their all-too-brief existence. All of the band's best-known tunes are here, including The Shot Heard Round The World, better known as "Smells Like Teen Spirit," "Come As You Are," "Lithium," "In Bloom," "Heart-Shaped Box," "Pennyroyal Tea," "Dumb," and "All Apologies" (the MTV Unplugged version). But considering that you may have all these tunes in your collection already, the main hook for buying "Nirvana" is, of course, the previously unreleased song, "You Know You're Right," the very last song Nirvana ever recorded. With it's slow & steady, assured build-up, followed by a classic thunderous full-throttle attack and Kurt's tortured voice & lyrics, this song is in instant Nirvana classic. "Nirvana" is worth getting just for the inclusion of "You Know You're Right" alone, but it is also worth getting as a tribute to a great musical genius and his great, trailblazing band. All the proof needed on why Kurt Cobain & Nirvana were--and are--so great is all here on this one CD. Thank you Kurt, and thank you, Nirvana. You are remembered.

I mean, anyone who doesnt at least respect the talent of the Nirvana guys has no soul!! I could have seen quite a few more songs on here...Drain You, Big Cheese,etc...but all in all for a greatest hits its great! The "new" song You Know you're Right is just chilling, i cried the first time i heard it, because you can sense his feelings that went into the song-he didnt just sing like many "musicians" out there today! Pennyroyal Tea sounds awesome remastered, it just seems more finished than it was before. I know there is not much sense to getting this album if your a fan like me who has had all their stuff since it came out...but it is especially good for newer Nirvana fans! I am glad Courtney Krist and Dave finally got over their spat and just released this damn thing...it is a historical piece that everyone should own, right up there with the Beatles, Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, etc....get it!

Not to much to say here. This is a best of Nirvana and Im sure we all know who Nirvana is by now!

It's got the basic's ("Smells Like Teen Spirit" , "Heart Shaped Box , "In Bloom") and a few track's that some people may not be familiar with ("About A Girl" , "Been A Son" , "Dumb") making it a good collection for the casual fan who just want's a simple best of , or someone complety new looking to get into there music.

The new track "You Know Your Right" is nothing special! If this is where Nirvana was

heading then they were CLEARLY running out of idea's! Kurt can write so much better! Catchey at best.

Overall their is 4 track's off "Nevermind" , one off "Bleach" , 4 off "In Utero" , 2 off

"Incesticide" and 2 off "MTV Unplugged In New York". Oh and of course the one new


5 star's because every song is awsome and Im not going to count "You Know Your Right" because it is not officially on one of their album's.
