Featured Album: "In Utero" by Nirvana

Updated: Aug 27, 2021

“In Utero” is the third and final studio album from Seattle grunge icons Nirvana. Released seven months before Kurt Cobain’s death in April 1994, “In Utero” captured the polished evolution of its grittier predecessor “Nevermind” which catapulted the trio to superstardom following their apathetic, acquiescent anthem “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” The angst is far from lost in Nirvana’s final act with tracks like “Radio Friendly Unit Shifter” and “Pennyroyal Tea” reminiscent of their garage-rock noise stylings heard throughout their debut album “Bleach.” Railing against the mainstream while being the biggest band in the world, gutturally screaming as the voice of a generation, Nirvana’s genius lies within the catharsis of their signature loud-quiet dynamic. Fall down the cracks of Cobain’s jagged vocals in tracks like “Heart-Shaped Box,” “Dumb,” and “All Apologies” by streaming the album in full on Spotify!
