After a most fine lunch on a bright sunny New York day, Nevermind is blasting through the little box on my desk and the finance department here at the lovely SPIN offices are probably going ballistic … But so what. Forget the new Guns N’ Roses double overkill. Forget Rush’s Roll the Bones. Nirvana has built this one for speed – that would be speed with a capital S – and it sure is fun to drive. A little bit punk, a little bit metal, a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. What the hell more do you want?

 

Nevermind’s got a full-out rock assault on “Territorial Pissings”, and a beautifully harmonic “On a Plain”, and a really cool song called “Breed.” Anyway, I swear you’ll be humming all the songs for the rest of your life – or at least until your CD-tape-album wears out. I’m fully about this record, and you will be too. (available late October)
