Nirvana's "In Utero" (1993)

Tracklisting:
01 | Serve the Servants
02 | Scentless Apprentice
03 | Heart-Shaped Box
04 | Rape Me
05 | Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle
06 | Dumb
07 | Very Ape

Note: I haven't included the hidden track, "Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through the Strip," because it was not included on the original release.

I bet we'll look good on the dancefloor next week…

They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

Not an easy album to rank, pretty consistant in quality but varying in style and intensity. Hardest one to rank is Milk It which has pretty cool parts and kinda unnecessary atonal parts too.

Still, I'll wholeheartedly follow Pitchfork for the #1 pick.
