Customer Reviews

This album is a must for ANY grunge/punk/Nirvana fan.
Katie
This album was excellent; even though it was a compilation of unpublished tracks, the songs flowed into one another superbly.
Steve
An album for the die-hard Nirvana fans, for those who really liked In Utero and Bleach.

....I LOVE Incesticide. And I must be the only Nirvana fan on the planet whose favorite song is Big Long Now. Why is this song so ignored? My god, the words, the haunting melody, the haunting vocals... ....
I won't get into analysing the songs and interpreting them blow-by-blow, but I will say that Kurt Cobain uses at least 7 different voices on this CD, and that each song is melodically and instrumentally genuine and original. The cover songs are also brilliant.
And here's just a little tidbit I have to mention: I became a Nirvana fan only quite recently. I was slightly too young for the whole Nirvana craze of 1991, and the tragedy of 1994.
But when I recently purchased Nevermind, I was hooked. Now, I purchased that album of course because that was "the one to get". HOWEVER, in a matter of one week, I had heard both In Utero and Incesticide, and quite honestly I don't think the big blaring "WARNING"-s are all that important for first-time listeners of the less-commercial Nirvana, if those listeners know good music when they hear it. This is just pure, glorious music with a brain, the kind where you can't predict the ending before the song is halfway through. The kind that you can't sing along to all that easily. The kind where you have to make an effort, for god's sake.
If the pop sap of today's various 'NStynks didn't drain you of your senses, get this CD. Don't be hesitant. And get Bleach and In Utero with it. There's more to Nirvana than Nevermind and Unplugged, as utterly fabulous as those two are (and my goodness, they are!). It might take a couple of listenings to get used to Incesticide. But only a couple. The quality will then speak for itself.

Incesticide was released to capitalize on the mammoth success of Nevermind. The album collects early singles, b-sides and outtakes. The album was most people's introduction to the fact that the band had released music prior to Nevermind. The album's first two songs, "Dive" & "Sliver", made up the band's first single. They are both short, but extremely powerful. The album contains some incredible work in addition to "Dive" and "sliver", most notably "Aneurysm". The song is a furious workout with squealing guitars , feedback, power drumming and amid all the noise, an incredible catchy melody. Other strong cuts include "Molly's Lips", "Beeswax", "Stain" "Hairspray Queen" and "Been A Son". There are some forgettable numbers like "Mexican Seafood" and "Aero Zeppelin", but overall, Incesticide is better than your average compilation.

This is my second favourite Nirvana record (after Bleach). It's a compilation of various outtakes, b-sides, and also BBC radio sessions. The album opens in fantastic style, with the super-rockin' "Dive", followed by (in my opinion) the best ever Nirvana song, "Sliver" (which is totally unlike anything else they did). From then on, the album is split into two distinct halves. The first half is very happy, cheerful stuff, with a whole lot of covers (some from The Vaselines, and a brilliant Devo cover). This is Nirvana at their most happy. The second half is mostly Bleach-outtakes, and so is a lot heavier and not so friendly to the listener. It also sees Kurt messing around a lot with his voice, trying out different stuff. It takes a while to get into the second half of the album, but it's well worth it. There is some great music going down here. "Beeswax", "Mexican Seafood" and "Hairspray Queen" all have killer tunes. Check out the bassline on "Hairspray Queen" - I love that damn bassline! "Downer" is a great song, which is also the last track on the Bleach CD. "Beeswax" has some potentially-very-crazy-and-cool lyrics. All in all, this is a really great grab-bag of stuff. Lots of cool songs - Buy it!

'Incesticide' is what it is: A great album of b-sides but not a truly great album. I love this album, don't get me wrong. I love Nirvana, and if you love Nirvana then you will love this. "Dive", the opening track, is a mediocre tune. The best part of this track is the drums. "Sliver" is one of the best Nirvana songs. The music is fun, and the lyrics are sad. "Been A Son" is a great look into Cobain's hatred of rednecks. "Molly's Lips" is another cover tune that is pure punk joy (alot like "Love Buzz"). "Aneurysm" is the most popular out of all the songs on 'Incesticide'. My favorite track on this album though is "Big Long Now". Its kind of like a bad acid trip that eventually leads to insanity. Also you should check out "Aero Zepplin" and "Hairspray Queen". If you like Nirvana, buy 'Incesticide'. If you only liked 'Nevermind' don't bother. This is Nirvana in thier pure punk attitude.

here are all of the tracks and why i love them:
Dive:9/10 good bass at the beginning, but it gets repetitive
Sliver:10/10 i love this song. the lyrics are a little strange, but what do you expect from Kurt?
Stain: 8/10 i don't like this song as much as the others. i don't know why
Been a Son: 9/10 the lyrics are pretty cynical, this song is about Kurt's sister (i think)
Turnaround:10/10 a great cover of a great band (Devo)
Molly's Lips: 8/10 i might appreciate it more if i heard the original one by the Vaselines
Son of a gun: 10/10. this is one of my favorite songs. i don't know why.
(New Wave) Polly: 7/10 the Unplugged version is the best.
Beeswax: 8/10 i like the drums in the beginning and the chorus.
Downer: 10/10. another favorite. it was originally on Bleach (another great cd) and eventually made its way here and onto Wishka.
Mexican Seafood: 9/10 good, but strange.
Hairspray Queen: 10/10 my third favorite. kinda hard to understand but very very good.
Areo Zeppelin 20/10 ok, so my rating is a little over the top. but this is hands-down the most under-appreciated song of the 90s. a lot of people don't feel that way, but i do. my favorite song on the cd, the hidden gem
Big Long Now:8/10 it's good, but kinda sounds depressing.
Aneurysm:10/10 my second favorite. it starts out in distortion, then gets calm, then does that over again until they get to the lyrics (then it continues) this is sorta like switching between two different songs that sound good together. my second favorite.
overall cd:10/10
maybe someday, when people get over the poser rock that dominates the airways these days, they'll finally notice the raw beauty of Incesticide.
R.I.P. Kurt Cobain
