Nirvana, one of the greatest rock bands ever, had a hard time dealing with their new found fame strictly in 1992, when it was at it's peak. During the planned third album in the middle of 1992, they found themselves still touring for Nevermind, the previous album. They were rushed to release the album as well, making it even harder to make. Luckily, a handful of songs that were rarely heard before by the public, songs from early sessions and recordings that only a few songs made it into Bleach, now the rest could all be released in Incesticide, which, in fact, is exactly what Nirvana did. They released every hard to find song that they hadn't released yet, except for a few that are to this day hard to find. The other songs that are new are sadly unfinished, and will remain that way forever. But they sound fine nonetheless, and so does the rest of the album. The album shows more of the punk side of Nirvana, as their song 'Slide' clearly shows, and 'Been A Son' and 'Molly's Lips'. This album is a collection of different ara's of Nirvana's lifespan before and after they became famous, I think of it. This album sounds a lot different than their other albums because of how different it is, but it's also a great album nonetheless. The cover, being painted by Kurt personally and the rest of the CD art as well, makes the album even more Nirvana. If they would have taken their time more on this album, the songs would have been finished and would have sounded even better, and their would be more unheard songs (I think two of them would be 'Spank Thru', and 'Curmudgeon', personally), making this album even more than a must-have than it is. Such a shame.
