From Kurtco
This album has just allowed Nirvana to acquire his rock legendary title. After "Nevermind" and its commercial interplanetary success, Kurt Cobain regrets that the majority of fans (teenagers especially) misunderstood the message. With "In Utero", Nirvana who could have chosen the path of ease and release a "Nevermind 2", decides to cut short with these fans, and finally make the music that really pleases him. "In Utero" has a heavier and dirty side than "Nevermind", even unhealthy, which paradoxically makes Cobain's music purer. Cobain's voice is more vividly alive than on "Nevermind". We find the "Bleach" debut with maturity and more. This album should have been called 'I hate myself and I want to die', is the album testament of Nirvana. We find tracks like "Serve The Servant", a miracle of simplicity and honesty; "Scentless Aprentice", right out of the anguish of Kurt Cobain, or "Heart Shaped Box" a hymn post mortem. "Francis Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle" and "Radio Friendly Unit Shifter" give "In Utero" its experimental side. "Rape Me" and "Pennyroyal Tea" are 2 pieces full of rage, despair and lyricism. "Tourette's": absolute rage. Not to mention the extraordinary walks that characterize a particularity of the band: "Dumb" and "All Apologies". It is the supreme album of Nirvana which certainly did not shine commercially like "Nevermind", but which largely surpasses it artistically. The last real grunge album, the one that Cobain never denied.

10/10

Best track: "Serve The Servants"

This is a fantastic album. Very raw, very noisey, very abrasive, just the way I'm sure Kurt Cobain liked it. While I prefer Nevermind, in Utero is a great album and in my top 100. Personal favourites include "Scentless Apprentice", "Serve the Serpents", "Heart Shaped Box", "Pennyroyal Tea" and "Rape Me".

From wenny
A fantastic peak in the Grunge scene. The nastiness and intensity lingering across the length of this album is something that will never be recreated. Truly a near-perfect send off for a relatively short lived but important band.

This, more than anything, consolidates the place of Nirvana in music history, "Nevermind" wasn't just a lucky strike, these guys were amazing, and Cobain songwriting is very unique, there is no denying that.

My favorite album of all time's, noisier, more raw younger brother. Even though this is my second favorite album, it's not far behind, heck it actually has my favorite song of all time on it (Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle) It's just way more emotional and grungier, and that's what I really admire about it, they could've made a follow up to Nevermind, no way, they made a successor.

Amazing. My favourite Nirvana albums. It's so much harder and experimental than Bleach and Nevermind. Favourite songs: Rape Me, Radio Friendly Unit Shifter & Tourette's

A very good album that ends perfectly with "All Apologies" which is a masterpiece.
