USA, 1993, grunge / alternative rock
Nirvana – In utero: In my mind, nothing defines grunge like Nevermind, and nothing Nirvana did touches that masterpiece. However, this album is better, more melodic—despite having a dirtier sound—than I remembered. It’s got some really catchy tunes. The back and forth between acoustic and electric bits highlights how effortlessly the band can switch from delicacy to harshness in quick changes.
