Sound — 9
Nirvana did amazingly well, to start off with, for creating the genre Grunge and influencing so many young people. Even though Kurt Cobain wasn't the best guitarist or singer in the world, his songwriting talent provided teens with a music sensation to hit back at adults. There was good use of distortion and clean sounds, the drumming was varied, but the screaming in some songs put me off a bit, especially if you listen to it loudly.
Lyrics — 8
As I said, Kurt Cobain's voice wasn't the best, but the lyrics got the message across, for example, Smells Like Teen Spirit and Breed. Polly had a strong message, that they got across very clearly if you listen to them. The lyrics aren't complex but it mixes well with the music.
Overall Impression — 10
Probably my least favourite of all the songs on Nevermind is Something In The Way, as the sound's slightly depressing. My favourites include... well, the rest of the album. I keep listening to certain songs though, like, Lithium, Breed, Lounge Act, Drain You. It I lost it or it got stolen, I would definitely buy it again, as I enjoy 11 songs out of 12.
