Nirvana‘s final album In Utero was released in 1993. I was a fan of theirs. I even saw them in concert before the end of the year. I think this album was harder and rawer than their previous album Nevermind. I wonder how they would sound today if Kurt Cobain had not killed himself in 1994, two days after my birthday.
I like this album a lot, but it did not have the impact on me that Nevermind had. I think it is a great follow-up, but at time I think I was moving toward dance sounds of the 90s.
My favourite songs were “Heart-Shaped Box“, “Rape Me“, “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle“, “Dumb“, and “All Apologies“.
I can relate to Cobain’s life as a kid. He had some struggles that we have in common. The difference is that I wanted my mother to leave her husband. I hated him. If I were wiser then I would have murdered him. I would not have felt any guilt. The album is great, but not quite as great as Nevermind. 9.5/10.
