To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the release of perhaps the greatest album every produced, there will be a Nirvana Nevermind 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition. This is one of the best ways to remember the person, the band and the music that has changed the music industry around the world forever. And to top it all off, this was supposed to be the sophomore album from the Seattle rockers.
Hence, after it was announced last June, many were anticipating of what it would be like and as if a trip down memory lane is not enough, there were some previously unreleased tracks for you to savour and perhaps reminiscent, when life was good and everyone basically hated everyone. In CD1, there are the standard tracks in the original with the likes of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, ‘Come As You Are’, ‘Lithium’ and all that. Most of the tracks sound the same as it was, raw, honest and loud. And Cobain delivers this with so much passion, life and conviction.
The second CD is where things get interesting as there are the Smart Sessions, the Boombox rehearsals on Teen Spirit as well as other notable ones like ‘Here She Comes Now’, ‘Sappy’ and many more. Well, with 4CDs, 1 DVD and a book and pictures, this is Nirvana crash course 101 at its best. This is the type of albums which will leave an everlasting impression and with Kurt Cobain’s shrieking and cracking voice through the microphone, Krist haunting bass lines and the unforgettable drumming and hard hitting hi-hats by Dave Grohl, this album sounds as recent as it can be. Watch the DVD of the concert recorded at Paramount Theatre on October 31, 1991 and you might just understand better what it means to be a true performer and an artist forever entrenched among the greats in the industry.
