A beginner's guide to Nirvana
2002 | Label: DGC

A single disc compilation released at Courtney Love's insistence, as a suitable showcase for the previously unreleased "You Know You're Right" (a "potential 'hit' of extraordinary artistic and commercial value," she said), Nirvana served up 16 songs, drawn in the main from Nevermind, In Utero and Unplugged, but bolstered by a track apiece from Bleach, Incesticide and the Blew EP. As such, it is very much a beginner's guide to the band, heavy on the… read more »

Great Collection

beaglesayarf

I like Nirvana, but not in strong doses (Yeah, I'm old, what's your point?) But this is a nice slice of history, how a band of 3 guys can take so many captive for a truly great ride! Cobain, like Morrison, or Joplin can take good players and create a chemistry that is truly a defining moment!

The Thing Is...

...all this music is probably better digested on the original albums. It's not like Nirvana has an enormous or hit-and-miss catalog to sift through. Pretty much everything they recorded is essential listening. So this is one of those Greatest Hits packages where there's not really any reason for it to exist, apart from making "You Know You're Right" available for the first time. I say download that track and then buy the rest of Nirvana's albums in full. Pretty obvious.

Everett True Revisits Nevermind

By Everett True, Contributor

In 1991, I was living in a one-man bachelor pad in Cricklewood, London. I was a staff writer for the U.K. music paper Melody Maker. During any given week, I would either be drunk in America, drunk on a plane to America or writing up my experiences, drunk in America. I'd been at Melody Maker for a couple of years, and already had one notable story to my credit. It was my two-part cover article on… more »

Six Degrees of Wavves’ Life Sux EP

By Austin L. Ray, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

Flying Saucers Rock & Roll

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

Of all rock's family tendrils, rockabilly is the one that keeps re-boppin', sporting a revival every decade or so, its coming-of-age kicks allowing each new offspring to roll its own. Guitar-heavy, emphasizing Wild Ones rebellion ("whaddya got?") and sonic dazzle (heavy on the reverb and chest vibrato), it raves and paves garage-punk (The Seeds to Damned), shockabilly (The Cramps and Chadbourne), new-wave (Stray Cats and Dire Straits), waggle-wobble (Jon Spencer and Boss Hog), Nirvana and… more »

From The Vaults: Fetchin Bones

By Mark Kemp, Contributor

In the mid-'80s a slew of quirky college-rock bands from Georgia and North Carolina stood poised to become the next big thing on the American indie-rock scene. Most wound up as footnotes to the R.E.M. story. Some — like Charlotte, North Carolina's Fetchin Bones — had brief moments in the sun before getting lost in the Aquanet fog of late-eighties hair metal. By the time Nirvana arrived a few years later to claim a spot… more »

They Say All Music Guide

The long-awaited single-disc anthology of Nirvana’s work, simply titled Nirvana, has all the hits and many of the radio favorites, plus the very good previously unreleased final recording, “You Know You’re Right.” – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
