This album is great I think it's a bit underated. Thais was my first album and it made me see that I had a passion for music and it changed how I thought bout music. Just because it has smells like teen spirit dosnt mean your not a true fan if this is your fvorite. This Album also got a lot of bands starten as far as '90s alt goes. My impression was that I thought it was pretty poppy yet hardcore and it sounded good. The passion Kurt, Dave, and Krist had is what I love bout them. they're other albums may be very hard core. (which I love and I think they all deserve a 10) but along with most of they're work this is trully geneus (except people need to listen to more than smells like teen spirit).

Ok I don't need to say much. Kurt Cobain was a lyical geneus and I think he's one of the best. Singer skills may be rough but you can tell the passion in his voice so it sounds good. I've seen people around here saying that eddy vedder writes better lyrics. Not even close. Kurt had so much more song writing ability than them.
Overall Impression — 10
I think this is one of they're greatest achevements. Anyone starting out listening to them should get this album then go from there. I think that "Bleach" is another great one and it will give you your hardcore grunge fix. This one is lik poppy/hardcore leaning a bit on the poppy side. Best songs: In Bloom, Come As You Are, Lithium, Polly, Drain You, Lounge Act, On A Plain. If I lost it I would definently have another one within the day.
