Nirvana se provava ser maior que um bom momento, consolida-se na história.

Nirvana is an excellent band from the 90s. This electro rage has made them famous all over the world. They are a pillar of grunge and alternative rock. Their song is energetic and fantastic. But their first 2 albums are a little in the process of becoming obsolete, indeed some of their music ages pretty badly with time. "MTV Unplugged In New York" is their album that has aged the least. This is a live album where Kurt Cobain and his two acolytes do covers of songs ("The Man Who Sold the World") and play their best songs. This live-album is recorded with acoustic instruments at the MTV in New York. It shows a certain maturity of the band.

9/10

Best track: "The Man Who Sold The World"

This is one of the most well regarded live albums for a reason. Nirvana not only managed to make some of the best albums in the 90's, but arguably, one of the best live albums of all time. The whole thing feels laid back, yet right at home with what Nirvana usually sounds like. I get chills from this album, being so passionate and emotional, with great production and overall fantastic atmosphere. The cover's are among the best songs on this album, and the renditions of all their original's are pretty much on par with the studio versions. I would say by quite a bit the best version of "About a Girl" is on this album. Not to bash the original, but I feel like this one sounds less forced and awkward, and really natural. To this day, this album and Nirvana as a whole is among the most important bands of the 90's, and even of all time, and for good reasons.

Impressive unplugged performance, (I prefer 'plugged' though). The Man Who Sold the World is my favourite track.

I'm a fan of Nirvana. I love their studio albums, and have gotten into the B-sides. I even like From The Muddy Banks Of The Wishkah (more than Nevermind..., but that's a different story). But I have to say that this is their crowning glory by some margin. From the fervent passion behind their own tunes, to the covers they inhabit so brilliantly, this is a great listen from beginning to end. Kurt's witty intermissions act as a poignant tribute to a man so misunderstood, even by those who assumed to know him.
Best tracks: The Man Who Sold The World, Plateau, All Apologies, Where Did You Sleep Last Night.
