At the time of it's release, Nevermind was probably the most polished, best produced "alternative" album , (I'm choosing to actually call it alternative, because grunge as a term hadn't quite made it into the cultural zeitgeist just yet). It was released on Geffen Records, which at the time was a big deal. Very few fringe acts were hitting major labels, so the idea of Nevermind needing to be remastered is ludicrous, considering also that the production should be a bit on the low-fi side.
The new remaster is just a way for the bean counters at DGC to squeeze every last drop out of Kurt Cobain's enigmatic legacy (sarcasm) and bank on a new generation of fans catching grunge's retro rebound.
