Frequently copied, but never equalled: "Nevermind" is plainly the Nirvana classic. "Nevermind" - that's a tornado of Nirvana music, intoxicating, disturbing, and intense as a force majeure, especially the evergreen"Smells Like Teen Spirit" with Kurt Cobain's crazy vocals and those hard Punk riffs still have the power to stir emotions and leave the fans moved, breathless, and shaken.

Timeless album, well worth having on vinyl!
Great Vinyl Album
With the baby on the cover of this record now in his mid-20s, it's appropriate that Nevermind is an album that can be picked up and appreciated by any listener, whether they lived through the emergence of grunge or not. Songs like 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' really summed up the frustration that galvanised the early '90s youth, and hints of Kurt Cobain's fragile mental state are apparent in tracks like 'Stay Away' and the haunting 'Come As You Are'. There really is no weak track on this album, whether it's the screaming racket of 'Territorial Pissing', or the dark and brooding 'Polly', but while Nevermind has Nirvana’s best songs, I still think In Utero is the better album. As Kurt himself has said, Nevermind is a little too polished, and it took Steve Albini’s raw production of In Utero to really showcase the band’s volatility and intensity at its fullest.
Most important album of the 90's
The album that mumbled the rally cry of generation and carved its own place in rock history.
Finally got round to buying this on vinyl
A truly great album
But if you're reading this you already know that
Unless you're 12, in which case just buy it!
