Review of the Album "Incesticide" by Alternative Rock Band Nirvana
What is Incesticide and How Does the Album Begin?
Incesticide is the 1992 studio album by Alternative rock band Nirvana and sometimes we don’t think that we will review certain albums only to end up reviewing them later. The album is actually a compilation kind of album which has a variety of songs ranging from demos to covers. Based on the fact that this is a compilation album, some people may not consider this to be an official Nirvana album. The album opens up with the song called Dive which is on the single called Sliver. Dive is a song that basically addresses the single life in a sort of humorous way. This album does not start off as strongly as Bleach or Nevermind did. But just how good was Incesticide?
Sliver and How the Album Incesticide is Structured
Sliver is a popular song but the chorus repeating itself constantly can be a con for this song. Your question might be how is the guitar sound compared to the band’s previous works? Given the fact that Incesticide has songs that were recorded in different sessions, the sound of the songs varies. But if you are ready to take a musical trip down memory lane, here with go with Nirvana’s Incesticide.
Some More Commentary About the Songs in Incesticide
Sliver is a song about a kid that is dropped off at his grandfather’s place even though he refuses to go there and he wants his grandmother to take him home. Even in 2018, Incesticide is an entertaining sort of listen even if the lyrics don’t always make sense. Turnaround is a song about someone that has turned out to have done nothing beneficial in his life and he is going nowhere and just wasting his life. Molly’s Lips is a song about a woman that promises to stay with her lover and take him anywhere as long as he keeps a clean image. New Wave Polly is a re-done version of the song Polly on the Nevermind album. A bird wants a cracker so he gets off her back to give her some water because apparently she is thirsty. Beeswax is a song about a person that feels that they have to do things their way. Downer is the last song off of the album Bleach and Kurt Cobain may have been really frustrated with the direction that the world was going in when he wrote this song. Mexican Seafood is a song that isn’t even about Mexican food but it is about someone that is paying a prostitute for sex and you can get an infection from this sort of activity. Aero Zeppelin is actually a song that questions the idea that some people have about love and it also says that don’t forget the accomplishments of yesterday that brought you to where you are now.
Final Thoughts About the Album "Incesticide"
Stained may as well be a humorous way to describe a person that never amounts to anything in his or her life because he or she does not read, does not draw and is a stain on society. Big Long Now sounds more atmospheric in nature and it is about a couple that are wondering if they can show their faces now. Is this relationship based on a lie? We will never know as the lyrics don’t seem to have logic in them. Overall, Incesticide is a decent experimental album that has its moments but it is not as good as In Utero.
