Editorial Reviews

To say that Nirvana's third and ultimately final studio album In Utero was 1993's most polarizing record would be the understatement of a decade. The unadorned sonic rawness of Steve Albini's recording laid bare every primal nuance of the most confrontational yet vulnerable material Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl would ever record. And with its 1991 predecessor Nevermind having sold some 30 million copies, singlehandedly returning honest rock 'n' roll to the top of the pop charts, In Utero was essentially the first record Nirvana would make with any expectations from the public. So from the opening quasi-shamble melodics of 'Serve The Servants' through the bittersweet closing strains of 'All Apologies,' In Utero was the sound of the most incredible yet conflicted rock 'n' roll band of the era at the peak of its powers coming to terms with a generational spokes-band mantle they'd never seen coming-and ultimately surmounting these struggles to make the record they needed to make. As Rolling Stone's David Fricke said in his review at the time, 'In Utero is a lot of things-brilliant, corrosive, enraged and thoughtful, most of them all at once. But more than anything, it's a triumph of the will.'

This 20th Anniversary 3CD/1DVD Super Deluxe Edition of the unwitting swansong of the single most influential band of the 1990s features more than 70 remastered, remixed, rare and unreleased recordings, including B-sides, compilation tracks, never-before-heard demos and live material featuring the final touring lineup of Cobain, Novoselic, Grohl, and Pat Smear. This box set also includes a DVD of the complete 'Live and Loud' show from Seattle's Pier 48 on December 13, 1993 plus never-before-released bonus material.

Additional Disc Info: (Disc 3) LIVE & LOUD: LIVE AT PIER 48, SEATTLE, WA-12/13/93 / (Disc 4)[DVD] LIVE & LOUD: LIVE AT PIER 48, SEATTLE, WA-12/13/93

5.0 out of 5 stars The first loudness war free Nirvana remaster. September 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD
**NOTE** When i reviewed this originally i was so blown away by Disc 1 and Disc 2 i didn't bother checking out Disc 3 or the DVD assuming they'd be up to the same standards... They're not, 'Live and Loud' was mastered by Bob Ludwig to the same standards of his 2011 Nevermind remaster. I can't believe DGC wouldn't just let Steve Rooke do the entire package. Yet again Bob Ludwig looks like a hypocrite because Steve Rooke has turned in a quality remaster of 'In Utero', it's b-sides and demo's -- the main selling point from a mainstream perspective (the stand alone album and deluxe edition seem to be everywhere). whilst Bob Ludwig has compressed the hell out of a concert that appeals more to diehard fans who cough up the cash for this Super Deluxe release. So one more time for old time sake, the most hypocritical of all quotes...

"People talk about downloads hurting record sales, I and some other people would submit that another thing that is hurting record sales these days is the fact that they are so compressed that the ear just gets tired of it. When you're through listening to a whole album of this highly compressed music, your ear is fatigued. You may have enjoyed the music but you don't really feel like going back and listening to it again. It's been really rough, folks, But it can get better and I think it will get better. I'm glad it's going to be over."

--

After the atrocity that was 2011's Nevermind re-issue/re-master which suffered from horrendous loudness war mastering i was skeptical about this re-release of my favourite Nirvana album 'In Utero'. It felt like history repeating itself and another cash grab.

Luckily, the complaints about the re-master of Nevermind don't seem to have fallen on deaf ears.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Nirvana album just got better! September 27, 2013
By Eriel
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In Utero is by far my favorite Nirvana album. I think Steve Albini did a wonderful job of capturing what the band actually sounded like at their peak. Something Andy Wallace's mix of Nevermind failed to do. In this version of the record I get to hear a full scope picture of what led to the album that i enjoyed so much the first time I heard it in 1993.

The remasters disc is my least favorite part of this. I like the original master because it had dynamics. Something that's lost in this remaster. However, it doesn't ruin the record. It's also nice to have the B-sides right there. Hearing Scott Litt's polished re-mix of Pennyroyal Tea is interesting, but I prefer the original mix still. I'm happy to finally hear Albini's mixes of Heart-Shaped Box and All Apologies. Though they sound exactly as I imagined.

The remix disc is very intriguing. Albini did the remix himself. So it's not some other producer trying to "improve" upon the original. In this disc he makes some interesting choices. In, "Serve the Servants" he uses an alternate solo which I frankly like better. It stands out from the mix better than the original, and is classic Kurt. For, "Dumb," he actually dumps the cello. Which I prefer, but he makes up for it by bringing the vocals up. It's quite fun to sit there and try to pick out the differences. It reminds me of the 20th version of Nevermind where you try and sense the differences in Butch Vig's mix of the songs from Wallace's.The demo's on this disc. are fun to hear. Mostly instrumental, so you get the the impression that the melodies and lyrics hadn't been finalized if written at all yet. You also get the demo of what I affectionately call the first Foo Fighters song Marigold.

Here is the part that I paid extra for.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best: Dynamic Range Intact September 26, 2013
By crank
Format:Audio CD
Well, after the over-compressed Nevermind remaster, DR 7 vs DR 10, this one is in good hands and you get some really nice goodies to boot. The full dynamic range is intact, which leads us to wonder what happened to Nevermind. Although that album I guess could lend itself to a slightly different sound, I still feel the DR 6 values and DR7 ones are generally overboard. Around DR9 is generally where you want an album to be for loud rock albums in my opinion. Higher values can start to blur things a little too much.

This item includes the original mix remastered well on disc one with all the extras of the time including some Albini mixes from the day that didn't make the record. This album as a whole had some considerable problems with mixing as Kurt and Co. were not totally happy with some things, but I will let someone else explain that to you or many stories on google abound.

What you need to know is that Albini has superbly remixed the whole album and that is available to you on disc 2. A more raw and less produced version it is really awesome and totally fits in with the original as well. You can hear a lot of the rhythm guitars and other sounds that I think add to the album in a good way. Other little differences will make themselves known easily to true fans. We should be going crazy over the fact they didn't mess this release up. It is FINALLY looking like the loudness wars are at least being reigned in from all the mass fan disapproval. At least somewhat.

The third disc is a decent sounding Live and Loud disc from the era that fans will again appreciate for being here. Now for the terrible part... the price of the super deluxe is insane. Well, you can be satisfied with the 2CD as that one is much more appropriate.

Super Deluxe Edition blues
The price is ridiculous.
About $50 maybe , would be fair.
Considering the low quality of previous live and demos recordings released, I would be very cautions with this.
Did they really find high quality unreleased demos and live tracks after all these years ??? I doubt it.

amazon - why do you do this!?
Well said! I feel the same way. Amazon should really look into fixing this problem. These reviews of the original album are absolutely USELESS for the the Super Deluxe item being sold.
