Smells Like Grunge Spirit

When people think of the greatest album ever released in the 90s, most people picture this:

Even I picture it. It’s not because it’s my favorite 90s album, it’s because I read about it everywhere. I love Nirvana, I do. As much I would love to conform, I can’t lie. My favorite Nirvana song is actually underated Dumb which can’t be found on this album. “I think I’m dumb, I think I’m dumb…” sounds like he’s in a trance. He sounds like he just took a downer and gosh, it’s sexy. Am I weird for thinking that?

I remember why it’s the greatest 90s album now– it started the grunge movement and helped revolutionise mainstream rock music. How could I forget that? The album peaked at number 1 on the billboard charts on the 11th January, 1992 replacing Michael Jackson’s Dangerous. Of all artist that could replace Michael Jackson’s number one spot, I’m glad it was Nirvana and not some rediculous girl-band. The album was released on September 24, 1991. It stayed on the charts for 252 weeks!

My favourite songs off Nevermind are Come As You Are, On a Plain and definitely Something in the Way. Normally I would say Smells Like Teen Spirit but it’s just a typical answer and . . . I’m tired of listening to that song. I guess that’s my own fault for repeating the track.

I was listening to the album in the car (yesI still listen to CDs, what’s MP3 mean?) and it put a frown on my face the entire time I was driving. I wasn’t pissed nor was there a dog territorial pissing on my car wheel. It put me in a frowning mood. I personally like bopping to music whilst driving. I do recommend popping this album on when you’re in a lounge act manner. I didn’t take any type of illegal drugs, but when you’re lazing around to this album, you’ll feel like you did. If you just had a hard time at work, college, or school and all you want to do is the opposite of thinking, this is a must.

Honestly, you don’t need  many words to describe how amazing this album is. I didn’t have to write all this! This is what I should have just written:

My friend and I lying on her bedroom floor with Nevermind blasting in the background.

Friend: Hey . . . this song’s cool.
Me: Yeah . . .


Coming up from Behind by Marcy Playground sounds really similar to Come As You Are.



Just Out! February 1998

I like to collect 90s magazine and post some interesting articles on this blog. I only did it once so far, and since there is a large time gap between my post these days, I decided to post some more.

Here are the albums that were just released, appearing in the February edition of TV Hits magazine. I don’t have any of these albums so I can’t give my personal opinion on them.


“Yield” Pearl Jam – Those mad rockers Pearl Jam are finally back with their latest album, “Yield”. The excellent single, “Given To Fly” and the tracks “Brain Of J” and “Wish List” will have Pearl Jam fans in rapture! This album is reminiscent of the excellent “Vitalogy” and “10” albums. If you haven’t been a fan of the Jam, start now!

Okay! Sounds like a plan!


“LSG” Levert. Sweat. Gill. – Three legends of R&B unite to make LSG – it’s Gerald Levert, Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill – and they’ve made one very smooth album. Don’t go past the tracks “My Body”, “Where Did I Go Wrong”, “Curious” and “You Got Me”. This is definitely the CD to play if you’re in the mood for some sultry sounds.

I don’t think I have ever heard of these guys. =S


“An American Werewolf In Pairs” Various – This soundtrack to the freaky movie with Julie Delpy and Tom Everett Scott is just awesome. With “Mouth” by Bush, “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Cake, Eva Trout’s (!) “Soup Kitchen”, Fat’s “Downtime” and loads of other great tracks, this album is made to be played very loud! Way-cool.

Never saw the movie and I’m not exactly interested in it either. The title of the movie sounds . . . lame, but hey, if you’ve seen it and recommend the flick or soundtrack, leave a comment! I’m just going to prejudge this flick as terrible until somebody tells me otherwise.


“A Moment of Love” La Bouche – If La Bouche’s latest CD doesn’t get you up and dancing’, nothing will! Fans will love unreal ditties like “A Moment Of Love”, “You Won’t Forget Me” and “Oh A Night Like This”. Also check out the cover of “I Can’t Stand The Rain” …the oldies might even like this one! So whack it on and start shakin’ your thang!

Their song “Be My Lover” is a pretty tough single to beat. I love that song.

“Ground Zero” Various (Polygram) – Whoa! From the TV show Ground Zero, this CD is chock full of hits. With Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping”, The Chemical Brothers’ “Block Rockin’ Beats”, Dannii’s “All I Wanna Do”, Texas’ “Say What You Want” and Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There”, it’s an absolute must-have CD!

That’s all.

I can’t help but ask, is there anything this reviewer doesn’t like? Everything happens to be Rad! Cool! Whicked!

After this, I realized I definitely don’t have a big enough music collection…
