Raw and angsty. Uncompromising vocals and intelligent lyrics equate to a complete triumph that brought the grunge genre to the forefront of 90s music.

Read the lyrics from this album translated to Swedish on midnight radio (local). As I remember it Nirvana was not at all famous at that time. (My glory days). Later I lost interest, of course, like any young man with self respect would.

It's some great music, I don't think any meaningful portion of the population seriously disagrees with that. But is the album in its entirety really better than Pet Sounds, In Rainbows, Wish You Were Here, The White Album, (insert any masterpiece ranked lower than 7th), etc? Probably not. I think an interesting thing to notice is that while it is ranked 7th, it is rated only an 86/100. The next album with a rating that low is ranked 23rd. This might point to a difference in perception of what it really means for music to be good that is highlighted by this album especially. While ratings seem more like a cold hard appraisal of the quality of the music, chart placements seem to be more emotionally based and tied to life experience and associations. I have noticed this not only on my own chart but on others' too. These facts might be highlighting the fact that this album was a real milestone in music for many people's lives and a seminal moment in music history. I really have no idea what the average age of people on this site is, but I'm guessing this is one of the few "great" albums that those of that generation were alive for. A couple earlier Radiohead albums, Doolittle, and Loveless are the only others I can think of off the top of my head, and none of those were so genre defining, paradigm shifting, AND mainstream is this.

That's my two cents
TL;DR: Nevermind likely has lots of emotional value for people, but isn't necessarily amazing musically (still great tho)

I'd strongly disagree that this album is overrated. I think it stands strongly among the top ten albums of all time. Overplayed? Yeah, probably.

This is a very good album, even great. And I totally see why it would be an album that diehard fans would get all up in arms about when someone says that it's overrated. It's not top ten all-time though. Top fifty, probably.

Best tracks: Lithium, Smells Like Teen Spirit, Come As You Are

If you're calling this album overrated or not great, obviously you don't understand the album. This album deserves top 10 of all time easily. Lyrically, it's all there. Musically, it is arbitrary but the music does speak for itself retrospectively speaking about its sustained influence as well as how many people still are listening to it. Smells Like Teen Spirit challenges listeners to start a revolution. In Bloom conveys the meaning of what shooting a gun is for, Come As You Are (sounds like water) and moves it's listeners to come to reality and the revolution. Breed and Territorial Pissings, sound like lightning in a bottle with the addition of Drain You and Something In The Way, all refer to aliens on earth affecting/infecting humans . Polly sums up the broken political system of left wing and right wings both dirty and broken wings while stating polly wants a cracker as a metaphor for people being told what they will be given but ending in Lounge Act explaining "don't tell me what I want to hear, afraid all I know is in fear, I'll arrest myself and wear a shield" which further states to protect oneself from the entities. Stay Away reiterates the "monkey see, monkey do" concept. Kurt is a genius and he knew what he was talking about. If you say this album is less than top 10 material lyrically, why don't you challenge the BEA listeners who rated this album as high as it is based on popular opinion? Additionally this lyrically, beats OK Computer but OK Computer is more about the subsequent aftermath of what Nevermind's immediacy is trying to prevent.

A little overrated. Not good enough for the top 10, but still a fantastic album.

Reading through the comments I see tons of people whose opinions are that this album is overrated- and it is, but why is it rated so high in the first place, if everybody seems to think it's overrated? For me, it's a decent album released at the right time. I can't blame the album for its songs being overplayed, but half the album is forgettable and overall it just does what other bands were doing before them, and better than them. I hate to say it (I really do), but if Kobain were still alive, this album would not be in the top ten. It'd be in the top 200 where it belongs.
