This ground breaking album in the line of many is made up of distortion, acoustic, and an electric crunch that just can't be played be other bands. They used heavy bass lines and amazing bursts of guitar to put together an amazing album that reached billboard tops in the blink of an eye.

The lyrics of the album seem to enter your head and make you think what were they doing when they thought of this song? This is one of the few bands that actually makes some (not a lot) sense of there lyrics. They made a huge impact on the whole world. Most of the time you couldn't sing some parts of the songs becuase of how Kurt Cobain would sing them. Kurt Cobain could sing amazingly well and pull it off. But he wouldn't pronounce the words as cleanly as he should have. As Kurt said in an interview; "I make two sincere verses and I have to make fun of them in my next". Kurt was an amazing artist and influence to everyone young and old.
Overall Impression — 10
This landmark in music history changed the overall perspective of what punk rock music is. But one song took the whole spot light of the album, the song Smells like teen spirit swept the nation and took no prisoners in its path. Many of the other songs on the album are just as known and played. For example Polly, Come as you are, and Lithium. This is one of the most amazing albums ever to be conceived. It perfectly blends Punk, Grungde, Rock, and Freedom to a perfect state and unleashes it. All of the songs are and were amazing. Almost every song can be listened to and not get old. RIP KURT COBAIN an amazing artist.
