    I've always wondered... why the bat-heart thing?
  3. I've always liked that record. At the time it was one of my favorites- now it's still a good album, and it always brings me back to that time- the winter of my freshman year of college. I can still hear some of those songs and imagine myself trudging up the hill through the slush.

    In Utero was better.

    well played gentlemen...
  7. I still believe Nevermind to be the "best" of the Nirvana records. I don't think In Utero would have had the impact that Nevermind had if it had been released in fall of 91. It was the right record at the right time.

    Back then, when you were trying to describe a band that was "indie," you'd have to relate it in terms of Nirvana. "We're sorta like Nirvana, but not like Nirvana."

    Without Nevermind, Nirvana would still be an average band playing to a comfortable regional following, and Cobain would still be writing mildly clever songs.

    It was the remix of Steve Farmer that pushed the album and band over the top. I don't care much for Nirvana (can't you tell? :cool: ) but it's a really well done album. It's like a sonic smorgasbord.

    BLEACH sounded rawly inspired, but the songwriting wasn't as developed. So, door #2 for me.

    I actually love every single song on nevermind but i just cant stand smells like teen spirit.

    On of my favorite memories is walking in the beach all alone just listening to that album..

    Novosellic (its probably not written like that) had some great basslines like lounge act and come as you are
