KMA2242 Nirvana – Nevermind
I revisited this record, recently. What can I say about it that hasn’t already been said? Exactly. So here are 80 words to try to cover it…
It’s where Nirvana rocketed into the stratosphere. Certified Diamond and still selling today. There were four singles, but shoulda been a ton more. Arguably, it’s the record that brought ‘grunge’ and ‘alternative’ kicking and moping into the limelight.
I still prefer the raw blast of Bleach, but it’s pretty damn hard to argue with this one, top to bottom. It is perfectly recorded, perfectly crafted, a one in a million moon shot that exceeded all expectations. Epochal.
