No, In Utero doesn’t sound fresh—it can’t. But it does sound great. Cobain had truly come into his own as songwriter, the band was at the peak of its musical power (they literally would never get any better) and, most of all, it is an album of deep and powerful emotional agony. Two decades have not dulled its inexpressible and contradictory ache, and this far down the road, if it has lost its immediacy, In Utero has managed to become something like the ruins of Pompeii: a time of terrible pain, frozen forever in an eternal moment.

Back In Utero

What the 20th anniversary reissue of Nirvana’s In Utero has in store

CD 1 - Original album remastered plus all B-sides and bonus tracks

CD 2 - 2013 album remastered mix plus pre-album demos

CD 3 - Live & Loud: Live at Pier 48, Seattle, 12/13/93

DVD of Pier 48 show

For you diehards out there, it’s also available in triple-vinyl form (original album plus extras), a single CD (original album remixed), and a single DVD of the 1993 Pier concert
