In Utero - 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe
In Utero is no anti-classic, not with the beautiful, radio-friendly likes of "Dumb," "Heart -Shaped Box" and "All Apologies." But beyond that, the next catchiest song is "Rape Me," and things only get more brutal from there. Cobain turned wondrous imagery into poetic songs like "Pennyroyal Tea," while reaching the ceiling of the human scream on such tantrums as "Tourette's" and "Milk It." This 20th anniversary set scrapes whatever's left to learn: that a great EP could've been made from its B-sides; that they were always essential live; and that these songs hold up under various studio mixes.
