Hard aggressive and memorable grunge. Not masterfully produced however and I feel the band still needed to grow a lot.

This is the best Nirvana album before they got gobbled up my the mainstream. Unpolished at their finest and not overproduced like Nevermind

A much, much rawer experience than the albums to come. Nirvana were truly embracing a DIY, underground aesthetic on Bleach. The thing sounds like it was recorded in a teenager's basement and yet this record is still more pummeling, abrasive and ballsy then a large chunk of records released in that decade.

A good raw rock'n'roll record that has an edge and a power that the later more 'slicker' Nirvana albums do not. Of course the songwriting isn't as strong as it would be, but this is still an decent LP, full of all the grit you would expect. About a girl is easily the best track which sounds incredibly like early Beatles to me. Still, as far as Nirvana were concerned, the best was yet to come.

From Space-Dementia 12/28/2015 01:57
Good debut from Nirvana. Musically, there's a couple great songs, but the rest I don't find too impressive. However, what I love about Bleach is the passion that went into it. Whenever Kurt sings, I get chills cause of how into it he is and how much it seems like he wants to keep singing. I love the effort they put into making this. I also agree that, although it's worse than Nevermind and In Utero, this album is a prime example of grunge. It's the grungy-est of the three, which is why less people like it but also why I admire it.

A tiny bit better than In Utero because it leans more to underground hardcore sounds of Black Flag, combined with Black Sabbath-like riffs, amazing.

First 5 track are the best of the album! Than it declines, but still keeps rockin!
