I can't figure out why this thread won't take off. Seems like a lot fewer people posting then a year ago.

I agree this is a cool thread. I am just not to sure how it works. Are you guys waiting for someone else to post another album to review? Can you guys not post more of your sacred cows?

CASE AGAINST

Well I am not much of a writer but here goes. I always thought Nevermind was a pretty good album, there are some great songs and I've always been a fan. I found this album to be a bit "polished" compared to other's, but from what I heard (from friends) is that was the labels fault. I heard Kurt wasn't even happy with how Nevermind turned out. I really notice the difference when I hear Kurt scream "yeaaaaaaah" on the song lithium. It sounds so polished compared to when he does it live. All in all this is a good album but by far not Nirvana's best.

Case Against

Well it's Nirvana's worst studio album. Gone is the rough, grunge inspired sound of Bleach and in comes a more polished sound which doesn't suit them. Watching live footage of them, even in the Nevermind period, they played loud and sloppily with lots of feedback and distortion and they rocked, all of this is absent in the more user-friendly sheen of this album.
Quite a bit of filler as well, there's nothing wrong with songs like Stay Away and Lounge Act but they're hardly interesting. You could say the same of Bleach but but then its all with that sludgy sound which i prefer far more.

It sounds like a trend to say that nevermind is their worst album considering it became so sucessful.....but
imo lounge act is the best song on the album. and stay away is great to how could you not like a song where someone is screaming 'god is ***'? but undoubtly nevermind is their most accesible album, why do think it became so big? my favorite overview of nevermind

We'll pass on the chance to add to the Kurt Cobain cliche heap and instead offer seven thoughts about the finest album of the 90s.
1. Prior to Nevermind's release, the charts were ruled by Paula Abdul, Roxette and Michael Jackson, so anyone who claims they saw Nirvana coming is, uh, lying.

2. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (a title that paid ironic tribute to a deodorant for adolescents) may be the album's worst song.

3. "Lounge Act," built on Krist Novoselic's rubber band bass riff and Cobain's slowly intensifying vocals, may be the best.

4. "Breed" and "Territorial Pissings" prove Cobain's love for the Sex Pistols.

5. "Lithium" and "Drain You" are his tribue to the Beatles.

6. Dave Grohl is a far better drummer than his idol John Bonham.

7. "Something in the Way" is the best evidence that, for a few minutes, Cobain was able to turn misery into grace.
