Nirvana's final album, In Utero, was recently celebrated in a deluxe 20th anniversary reissue. Original producer Steve Albini revisited the album with full blessings from bandmembers Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic for a "2013 Mix." Audiophiles can get their hands on this reworking November 29th, when the modern mix is released as a 45 RPM, 180-gram limited edition double vinyl on Black Friday for November's Record Store Day. The record was mastered at Abbey Road Studios with alternative artwork specific to the release.
Last months, Grohl reflected on the album's recording process with Rolling Stone's David Fricke. "Recording with Steve [Albini] he would hit 'record,' we'd do a take, and he'd go [claps hands], 'Okay, what's next?' Wait, is it okay?" Grohl said. "We blazed through In Utero. I was done after three days.
Nirvana's second real album (there was another one in between Nevermind and In Utero but that was just some rarities and oddball tracks) and, as before, it's a beaut! In Utero hit No.1 on both sides of the Atlantic following up on the incredible fanbase which Nevermind created. Contains the hit single U.K. hit Heart-Shaped Box (No.5, August '93) and another hit All Apologies.
Unhappy with the high-gloss production and pop-based arrangements on Nevermind, Nirvana set out to make a harsher album that would literally alienate millions. While the trio succeeded in its goal of getting intimate with blistering dissonance and acerbic tones, In Utero resonated with the public, debuting at #1 on the Billboard charts and ultimately selling more than four million copies. Echoing John Lennon, Cobain's piercing songwriting spoke to the disaffected masses that shared his anguish and set new standards for ironic depth that still stand.
In Utero was the studio follow-up to to band's 1991 breakthrough, Nevermind, and would go on to define the voice of a conflicted and disenchanted grunge generation. David Fricke described In Utero as "brilliant, corrosive, enraged and thoughtful, most of them all at once. But more than anything, it's a triumph of the will," in his review for Rolling Stone.
This exploratory ethos also informs In Utero's new 2013 mix, overseen by Albini with input from Novoselic, Grohl, and Smear. Strangely enough, the revamp was inspired by another rock icon who died at 27: Novoselic recently revealed the idea came to him after hearing a gussied-up Doors compilation that emphasized certain, previously unnoticed sonic details. Albini, however, has offered a more pragmatic rationale: In Utero's quick gestation period meant some mixing decisions were made off-the-cuff, resulting in various instrumental parts, alternate guitar solos, and harmony lines being left out. As he told podcaster Vish Khanna, his intention was not to replace the 1993 mix, but to simply take a snapshot of the same songs "from a different angle." The new version is in fact more textured and nuanced, but not at the expense of the album's bone-dry, brutalizing crunch. Most of its touch-ups are tastefully unobtrusive and illuminating, like the unearthed cello lines creeping behind the chorus of "Serve the Servants" that bring a greater sense of melancholy to the fore, or the screeching strings and slowly decaying fadeout of "All Apologies" that lend a more palpable degree of finality to the proceedings. But there are times where the listening experience is reduced to a parlor game of spotting what's been added and what's been omitted: On the upside, "Scentless Apprentice" now sounds like it's being screamed into a toilet, pushing the song to exciting new levels of gnarliness,
