Product Description

Ten Years after Kurt Cobain's Death, the Greatest Hits of Nirvana is Finally Ready to Land! features a Great Selection of Some of Nirvana's Biggest Songs, this Special Australian Version also features the Special Bonus Track "Where Did You Sleep Last Night".

Amazon.com

Essentially a greatest-hits collection with one previously unreleased song, "You Know You're Right," and producer Scott Litt's 1994 remix of "Pennyroyal Tea," Nirvana the album is nevertheless a welcome addition to the band's canon. Crisp, elegant liner notes by Rolling Stone writer David Fricke put us squarely in Kurt Cobain's mindset as he entered a Seattle studio in January 1994--a full two days later than expected--to record what would be his final session with Nirvana. The resulting "You Know You're Right" locates Cobain at the apogee of his disenfranchisement with tongue nevertheless planted firmly in cheek. Bawdy, raucous, and venomous, "You Know You're Right" could have been lifted from Nevermind. A mix of tracks from that album ("Smells Like Teen Spirit," "Come as You Are," "Lithium," and "In Bloom") sits opposite stuff from early EPs and the Bleach disc ("About a Girl," "Been a Son," and "Sliver"), plus two from the MTV Unplugged sessions and several more from In Utero. Not the Nirvana treasure chest we hoped for, but solid nonetheless. --Kim Hughes

The remaining members of Nirvana wanted the bands previously unreleased gem "You Know You're Right" to be released with a batch of other rarities in a box set of "new" material. Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, wanted to be able to use Nirvana's name and the much-hyped new tune as a bargaining chip in a new deal with Universal Records. She won in the courts, and now the song has been tacked on as the obligitory new track on a collection of 13 songs that have been released and heard a million times before.
Nirvana doesn't lend itself well to compilation because they only released 3 albums that each sound very, very different. It's not very expensive and a much more rewarding decision to buy each of the three albums rather than this cheesy "Greatest Hits" record, something it's hard to imagine a living Kurt Cobain authorizing. The songs are good, but a lot of the groups best work is missing here and the arrangement leaves a lot to be desired.

It could not be more obvious how much of an income attempt this entire CD is. With the disc and Kurt Cobain's "Journals" out "just in time for the holiday season", it doesn't take a genius to figure it out: the exploitation is insulting. While every track on the disc is extremely good and complete (as well as remastered)you begin to realize just how bland it is. With a band like Nirvana, an artistic purging of the most unique kind, you'd expect a couple of non-singles on there. Really good songs that weren't radio-friendly but truly represented what the band was about in full context. Instead, you have a bevy of all of the hits, which obviously is to be expected of the average band. But the original idea (that probably would have happened had Courtney Love not gone into a seizure over it) was a boxset full of rareties and material true to the band. It would have marked the 10th Anniversary of the release of "Nevermind" and it most likely would have been awesome. This album takes it's place, and with the exception of "You Know You're Right" (the overly-hyped though still really good "last Nirvana song") it pales in comparison to what could have been. Forgive me. I'm somewhat selfish. I'm obviously grateful, yet somewhat let down.

This is a very dry overview of Nirvana's career. I know the main goal is to assemble all of the hits on to one CD for casual fans intimidated by actual albums, but would it have been so hard to include some of the fan favorites that rank among the groups most essential work, if not their most well-known?
"Drain You" belongs here. "Polly" belongs here. "Aneurysm" should be here in some form (it was a hit off the 1997 live album and a highlight of Incesticide). "Love Buzz" was always a live staple and one of the standout songs from their debut. At a time when CD prices are reaching ridiculous new heights and other legendary performers like The Beatles and Elvis are seeing 30-song single-CD career overviews released, the Nirvana best-of CD should have featured a little bit more than it does.
The new song, "You Know You're Right", is typical Nirvana but enjoyable and emotional nonetheless. It stinks that hardcore fans will be driven to buy 13 songs they already have for this one new tune, but thats Geffen's plan now, isn't it?

This cd does offer some new stuff despite the mass misperception.

1. You Know You're Right

2. Been A Son (different recording)

3. Pennyroyal Tea (remixed)

Other than that, it's all rehash! I personally love the new version of Been A Son which was mentioned in the book Come As You Are. It includes Chris's "tasty bass solo". Pennyroyal Tea's remix is much better than the In Utero version, although not entirely that much different. Finally, You Know You're Right is a good song, but in my opinion not worthy of being a "Greatest Hit".

It's true the cd lacks some hits including: Polly, Love Buzz, and Anuerysm. I recommend this cd to newcomers of Nirvana, but to hardcore fans, I'd spend it on something else. This cd is an obvious ploy to make money for Courtney Love, and lucky you, just in time for the holidays!

Kurt does not live. Nirvana did not change the world. If they had, this disc would not exist just in time for the Christmas rush and no one would be making scads of money from its sales. It is a fairly comprehensive selection from almost the entirety of Nirvana's brief existence. The hits (the evergreen 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'; 'Come As You Are') are of course righfully included, as are several lesser-known and not-too-hard-to-find tracks. If you do not already have any Nirvana this is an excellent place to start, and quite possibly stop. The liner notes are pretty informative, too, and the packaging is attractively, if dutifully, stark and somber. Guess you can't really go wrong with this one, but it would have been nice if tracks from, say, the early Sub-Pop EP were included. The CD clocks in at only 50 minutes, which leaves much room for improvement.

For a band that only put out 3 studio albums, the mere thought of a greatest hits compilation seems frivolous. It is, in Courtney Love's own words, a blatant attempt "to make millions of dollars". Keep in mind that this is the same woman who sold the rights to her late husband's own personal journals. The compilation itself is an unthoughtful and messily-arranged collection that to call Nirvana's best is almost an insult. Where are such fan favorites as Negative Creep, Drain You, Aneurysm, and Radio Friendly Unit Shifter?
Unlike the made-for-MTV punk bands of today, Nirvana didn't wrap filler songs around one or two singles and call it a day--each album is an experience, and deserves to be listened to all the way through. If you need an introduction to Nirvana, skip this and buy any of their studio albums. If you have all of their albums, invest in a CD burner, download You Know You're Right off of KaZaa or Morpheus, and make a compilation of your own favorite songs; it's what Kurt would have wanted.
