TOP 5 NIRVANA ALBUMS
Altough I'm not a big grunge/punk/alternative fan anymore, I used to be a big fan a few years ago.
Now I'm more into power/speed metal, but from to time I listen to their music
Visit my old Nirvana website for lyrics:
And here it is:
1.) BLEACH (Released 1989, Sub-Pop Records)
The first album of Nirvana, released by their first label Sub-Pop records.Recommended for true Nirvana fans, but the normal-listeners will may find this album a bit .... let me say "strange".
Altough it features some nice songs like: About A Girl, Downer, School, Scoff, etc.
2.) NEVERMIND (Released 1991, Geffen Records)
Ya, it's the one with the naked baby on the cover.
Nirvana's best (-selling) album, with hits like Smells Like Teen Spirit, Come As You Are, In Bloom & Lithium ...
3.) INCESTICIDE (Released 1992, Geffen Records)
A compilation of b-sides, raw material and not-used material that they have recorded during studio sessions.I like this album very much.it has a bunch of great song on it , like: Sliver, Aneurysm, Molly's Lips, Sun Of A Gun, (New Wave) Polly, Been A Son ... etc
4.) IN UTERO (Released 1993, Geffen Records)
What you see on the cover of the album is a pregnant , naked woman without skin but with wings.Hmmm a bit strange , but the album title says "In Utero"
On the tracklist of this album you can find songs like: Heart Shaped Box (Which is rated as the best Nirvana video, directed by Curt Korbajn), All Apologies, Rape Me (was restricted by MTV, but they played the song on their last MTV live performance "Live n' Loud"), Pennyroyal Tea ...
There's also a kinda hidden track at the end of the album , the song is called "Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through the Strip"
5.) UNPLUGGED (Recorded 18. Nov. 1993, Released 1994 , Geffen Records)
Some of you will now say:"Hey, wait that's a live album !!".
Ya, but not the kind of live performance we all know, it's much more than that.It's a great "album" , so it has to be listed.I hope you agree.
This was recorded 18. Nov. 1993 , but was released 1994 , after Nirvana leader Kurt Cobain past away (5. 4. 1994, found at his house three days later 8. 4. 1994 with a shootgun in hist hand and a hole in his head).
However this record is excellent.One of the best MTV Unplugged performances ever.The record features songs like: About A Girl, Come As You Are, Pennyroyal Tea (performed by Kurt Cobain on it's own, with only his voice and an acoustic guitar, realy nice), The Man Whos Sold The World (originaly by David Bowie), Jesus (Don't) Want Me For A Sunbeam, On A Plain, Where Did You Sleep Last Night ...
Three songs were performed together with the guys from "Meat Puppets":
Plateau, Oh, Me and Lake Of Fire (realy great songs)
Ok that's it.I hope you enjoyed.
Actualy Nirvana had only those five albums (and a live album compilation called "From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah").
BTW, god-of-rock's threads inspired me to do this.So if it's bad claim him , not me
