Critics often default to breathless hyperbole when discussing Nirvana's Nevermind. Can you blame them? The band's 1991 sophomore album single-handedly revolutionized rock music at the dawn of a new decade, a zeitgeist shift whose scale has not been matched in the decades since. It distilled a generation's worth of suburban ennui and despair into a 36-minute  scruffy blitzkrieg, turning bandleader Kurt Cobain into first a prophet and later a martyr. It also marked a windfall for every department store with an excess stock of oversized flannel shirts.

This commercial  succes, launched the beggining of the end... "the death of rock music" during the 90s decade. Nirvana's second album still sounds like a monstrous changing of the tide all these years later. Part of it had to do with timing, but a lot of it comes down to the principals involved in the making of Nevermind: producer Butch Vig, mixer Andy Wallace and the band members, all of whom execute Kurt Cobain's excellent songs with equal measures of sensitivity and volume. By the mid-'90s it was hard to find a hard-rock album that didn't bear a trace of Nirvana's masterpiece. In some ways the genre never recovered; it needed to adapt to move on. And for that we can thank Nevermind. This download here below includes the remixed and remastered version of 2021.
