My Number One Favorite AlbumBy Triyou, posted 01/12/20 16:42:55
For a little insight on the process of picking my favorites I thought I would discuss what album I chose as my all time number one and the reasons that I chose it--and there are several. It would probably be best that I divulge what I did pick (I know the suspense must be killing you) and I slotted NIrvana's last studio Album, In Utero in my number one spot. Kurt Cobain came along at the perfect age for me. In Utero came out right near my 16th birthday and I cannot remember awaiting an album release with such excitement before or since--well maybe the White Stripes Icky Thump. I can remember exactly where I was when I heard the first single, "Heart Shaped Box" on the radio and that was in the passenger seat of my friend's Ford Taurus on a desolate country road. After that I could not wait to hear the entire release and I certainily was not dissapointed. Lyrically it might be my favorite ever and it starts off very strong, "Teenage angst has paid off well, now I'm bored and old." I surely do understand those lyrics better now, but they were very striking back then as well. I love the raw sound created on this long player and I have never heard anything quite like it before or since. Its hard to pick just one Nirvana Album, I also think Nevermind is near perfect and I probably listed to Incesticide more than any other in recent times.
