Nevermind was never meant to change the world, but you can never predict when the zeitgeist will hit, and Nirvana s second album turned out to be the place where alternative rock crashed into the mainstream. This wasn t entirely an accident, either, since Nirvana did sign with a major label, and they did release a record with a shiny surface, no matter how humongous the guitars sounded. And, yes, Nevermind is probably a little shinier than it should be, positively glistening with echo and fuzzbox distortion, especially when compared with the black-and-white murk of Bleach. This doesn t discount the record, since it s not only much harder than any mainstream rock of 1991, its character isn t on the surface, it s in the exhilaratingly raw music and haunting songs. Kurt Cobain s personal problems and subsequent suicide naturally deepen the dark undercurrents, but no matter how much anguish there is on Nevermind, it s bracing because he exorcises those demons through his evocative wordplay and mangled screams -- and because the band has a tremendous, unbridled power that transcends the pain, turning into pure catharsis. And that s as key to the record s success as Cobain s songwriting, since Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl help turn this into music that is gripping, powerful, and even fun and, really, there s no other way to characterize Territorial Pissings or the surging Breed . In retrospect, Nevermind may seem a little too unassuming for its mythic status -- it s simply a great modern punk record -- but even though it may no longer seem life-changing, it is certainly life-affirming, which may just be better.
EXCERPT FROM AN ONLINE REVIEW BY STEPHEN THOMAS ERLEWINE, ALL MUSIC GUIDE /ALLMUSIC.COM/
This is a rare opportunity to acquire this great album in its FINEST audio format, no longer in print, and no longer easily obtainable. Finding a still sealed original copy? ? Forget it not even a HOPE This may be the last one you will ever see.
IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded we grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight
a THE ALBUM IS STILL FACTORY SEALED AND IS BELIEVED TO BE PERFECTLY MINT. Please note: sealed items are assumed to be mint and are sold as-is, as we have no way of inspecting them. For our policy on still sealed records click here PLEASE READ BEFORE PLACING A BID .
b The album comes with the original MFSL cardboard inner sleeve we can see it through the opening
c The record comes in a hi-grade MFSL PVC inner sleeve we can see it through the opening
d The record is apparently pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording
e The record is also pressed on a beautiful, high-quality, virgin-grade vinyl, which is usually used for audiophile, extended-dynamic-range, half-speed mastered and connoisseur pressings.
f In addition, the record is pressed on a fairly thick, relatively inflexible vinyl.
COVER IS STONE MINT, STILL SEALED AND NOTHING SHORT OF ABSOLUTE PERFECTION, WITHOUT EVEN A HINT OF A FLAW OR DEFECT A KIND OF BEAUTY YOU ONLY GET TO SEE ONCE IN A LIFETIME.
NO VISIBLE FLAWS OR IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER
