Advantages: Choice of songs by KC, creates an atmosphere, the best god damned album you can buy in my opinion
Disadvantages: Some people might find it TOO relaxed
If you are looking for something mellow which will leave you calm and relaxed then this is a great album. One cannot really judge how good a performer is until they play live - then you can see if they can actually play the songs! This is a beutiful, almost heavenly performance by not only Kurt Cobain but the whole of Nirvana, all done in one take. It features some of their hits such as 'come as you are' but most of it is farely unheard of stuff. In my opinion this was a great step foreward for the band. The songs that KC chose were perfect for the occasion and really create an amazing atmosphere, especially now that KC has passed away.
This will always go down as one of Nirvana's great performances so don't miss out on a part of music history.
