In Utero is the third and final studio album by the American grunge band Nirvana, released on September 13, 1993, on DGC Records. Nirvana intended the record to diverge significantly from the polished production of its previous album, Nevermind (1991). .To capture a more abrasive and natural sound, the group hired producer Steve Albini to record In Utero during a two-week period in February 1993 at Pachyderm Studio.^ Bumped up two weeks from its original release date, Britney Spears' fifth studio album (and her first in four years) Blackout arrives.

.Although Nirvana publicly denied the statements, the group was not fully satisfied with the sound Albini had captured.^ Originally helmed by Steve Albini, an engineer known for capturing live ambience and natural tones, the album was eventually remixed by Scott Litt after the group complained about the vocal sound.

Background

.Nirvana broke into the musical mainstream with its major label debut, Nevermind, in 1991. Despite modest sales estimates—the band's record company, DGC Records, forecast that 50,000 copies would be sold[1]Nevermind became a huge commercial success, selling millions of copies and popularizing the Seattle grunge movement and alternative rock in general.^ If you do a conservative estimate, then you are talking at least 50,000 children across Canada over a century."

[3] .Early in 1992, Cobain told Rolling Stone that he was sure that the band's next album would showcase "both of the extremes" of its sound, saying "it'll be more raw with some songs and more candy pop on some of the others.^ Majdi Birnawi, another security expert, told Al-Jazeera that "I believe that Mossad or some other (Israeli) security organization carried out this attack."

[5] DGC had hoped to have a new album by the band ready for a late 1992 holiday season release; since work on it proceeded slowly, the label released the compilation album Incesticide in December 1992.[6]
.In a Melody Maker interview published in July 1992, Cobain told the English journalist Everett True he was interested in recording with Jack Endino (who had produced the group's 1989 debut album Bleach) and Steve Albini (former frontman of the noise rock band Big Black and producer for various indie releases).^ Lullaby Renditions Of Baby's Favorite Rock Bands (CD, Album, Comp) .
  • Kurt Cobain Discography at Discogs 25 January 2010 23:33 UTC www.discogs.com [Source type: General]

Cobain said he would then choose the best material from the sessions for inclusion on the group's next album.[7] In October 1992, Nirvana recorded several songs (mainly as instrumentals) during a demo session with Endino in Seattle; many of these songs would later be re-recorded for In Utero.[8] .Endino recalled that the band did not ask him to produce its next record, but noted that the band members constantly debated working with Albini.^ "I heard that a PJ officer had been surprised to find a member of MI5 at a UK meeting about the case, and this made him suspicious that shadowy forces could be at work.

[9] The group recorded another set of demos while on tour in Brazil in January 1993.[10] One of the recordings from this session, the long improvisational track "Gallons of Rubbing Alcohol Flow Through the Strip", was included as a hidden track on non-US copies of In Utero.[11]
Nirvana ultimately chose Albini to record its third album. Albini had a reputation as a principled and opinionated individual in the American independent music scene. While there was speculation that the band chose Albini to record the album due to his underground credentials, Cobain told Request magazine in 1993, "For the most part I wanted to work with him because he happened to produce two of my favorite records, which were Surfer Rosa [by the Pixies] and Pod [by The Breeders]." Inspired by those albums, Cobain wanted to utilize Albini's technique of capturing the natural ambiance of a room via the usage and placement of several microphones, something previous Nirvana producers had been averse to trying.[12] Months before the band had even approached Albini about the recording, rumors circulated that he was slated to record the album. Albini sent a disclaimer to the British music press denying involvement, only to get a call from Nirvana's management a few days later about the project.[13] .Although he considered Nirvana to be "R.E.M. with a fuzzbox" and "an unremarkable version of the Seattle sound", Albini told Nirvana biographer Michael Azerrad he accepted because he felt sorry for the band members, whom he perceived to be "the same sort of people as all the small-fry bands I deal with", at the mercy of their record company.^ We should not copy the poorest countries in Africa because, although they do not consume more than their fair share of resources, they do not have a decent standard of living for all their people.

[14] Before the start of recording sessions, the band sent Albini a tape of the demos it had made in Brazil. In return, Albini sent Cobain a copy of the PJ Harvey album Rid of Me to give him an idea of what the studio where they would record at sounded like.[15]

Recording

The members of Nirvana and Albini decided on a self-imposed two-week deadline for recording the album. Wary of interference by DGC, Albini suggested the band members pay for the sessions with their own money, which they agreed to.[16] Studio fees totaled US$24,000, while Albini took a flat fee of $100,000 for his services. .Despite the suggestions of Nirvana's management company Gold Mountain, Albini refused to take percentage points on record sales, even though he stood to earn approximately $500,000 in royalties.^ And even though Charlie has been visiting her in the hospital, Brooke's mother, Moira , wants her to take time away from him.

[16] While a common practice among producers in the music industry, Albini refused to take royalties because he considered it to be immoral and "an insult to the artist".[14]
In February 1993, Nirvana traveled to Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota to record the album.[17] .Albini did not meet the band members until the first day of recording, though he had spoken to them beforehand about the type of album they wanted to make.^ "I heard that a PJ officer had been surprised to find a member of MI5 at a UK meeting about the case, and this made him suspicious that shadowy forces could be at work.

.Albini observed that "they wanted to make precisely the sort of record that I'm comfortable doing".[18] The group stayed in a house located on the studio grounds during the recording sessions.^ They wanted to find a charismatic religious leader that they could promote and control and they began to cooperate with groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Novoselic compared the isolated conditions to a gulag; he added, "There was snow outside, we couldn't go anywhere. We just worked."[17] For most of the sessions, the only people present were the band members, Albini, and technician Bob Weston.[19][20] .The band made it clear to DGC and Gold Mountain that it did not want any intrusion during the album production, going as far as not playing any of the work in progress for its record label A&R representative.^ She didn’t like to go outside during the day.” ~~ Posted by Anon at 9:30 AM 1 comments Labels: CIA .

[19] To prevent the group's managers and label from interfering, Albini instituted a strict policy of ignoring everyone except for the band members; the producer explained that everyone associated with the group aside from the musicians themselves were "the biggest pieces of shit I ever met".[21]
.The album sessions began slowly but would ultimately gain momentum; the band arrived at Pachyderm Studio without their equipment, and spent much of the first three days there waiting for it to arrive by mail.^ In fact, three days before Hess arrived, there had been a vote of no-confidence in Churchill.

However, once recording began on February 13, work moved quickly.[17][19] .On most days the group began work around midday, took breaks for lunch and dinner, and continued work through midnight.^ The attacks took place one day following the completion of the annual Turkish-US Joint Defense Group meeting (17-19 November 2003).

[16] Cobain, Novoselic, and Grohl recorded their basic instrumental tracks together as a band.[19] The group utilized this setup on all songs except for faster compositions like "Very Ape" and "tourette's", where the drums were recorded separately in a nearby kitchen due to its natural reverb. Albini surrounded Grohl's drum kit with approximately 30 microphones.[16] Cobain added additional guitar tracks to about half the songs, then added guitar solos, and finally vocals. The band did not discard takes, and kept virtually everything it captured on tape.[19] .Albini felt he was more an engineer than a producer; despite his personal opinions, he ultimately let the band judge which were decent takes.^ One province in Indonesia produces more carbon than the Netherlands - Indonesia forest loss killing climate, endangered animals .

. .] He can make concrete steps to improve things that he doesn't think are acceptable."[23] Cobain reportedly recorded all his vocal tracks in six hours.[24] .The band completed recording in six days; Cobain had originally anticipated disagreements with Albini, whom the singer heard "was supposedly this sexist jerk", but called the process "the easiest recording we've ever done, hands down".[19] The only disruption occurred a week into the sessions, when Courtney Love arrived because she missed Cobain.^ One day six Mau Mau suspects were brought into a police station in the neighbouring district to mine.

^ The attacks took place one day following the completion of the annual Turkish-US Joint Defense Group meeting (17-19 November 2003).

The band, Love, and Albini refused to go into specifics, but Weston's girlfriend—who served as the studio's chef—stated that Love created tension by criticizing Cobain's work and being confrontational with everyone present.[16]
The mixing process for the album was completed over the course of five days.[24] This rate was quick by Nirvana's standards, but not for Albini, who was used to mixing entire albums in a day or two. On occasions when work on a song mix was not producing desired results, the band and Albini took the rest of the day off to watch nature videos, set things on fire, and make prank phone calls for amusement.[25] The sessions were completed on February 26.[26]

Music and lyrics

Albini sought to produce a record that sounded nothing like Nevermind.[14] He felt the sound of Nevermind was "sort of a standard hack recording that has been turned into a very, very controlled, compressed radio-friendly mix [...] That is not, in my opinion, very flattering to a rock band." Instead, the intention was to capture a more natural and visceral sound.[23] Albini refused to double-track Cobain's vocals and instead recorded him singing alone in a resonant room.[23] The producer noted the intensity of the singer's vocals on some tracks; he said, "There's a really dry, really loud voice at the end of 'Milk It' [...] that was also done at the end of 'Rape Me,' where [Cobain] wanted the sound of him screaming to just overtake the whole band."[27] Albini achieved the album's sparse drum sound by simply placing several microphones around the room while Dave Grohl performed, picking up the natural reverberation of the room. .Albini explained, "If you take a good drummer and put him in front of a drum kit that sounds good acoustically and just record it, you've done your job."^ In Farr's Court Martial papers, the Sergeant Major is quoted as saying “If you don't go up to the f*****g front, I'm going to f*****g blow your brains out” to which Farr simply replied “I just can't go on.” The Court Martial was over in 20 minutes.

[23]
Azerrad asserted in his 1993 biography Come as You Are: The Story of Nirvana that the music of In Utero showcased divergent sensibilities of abrasiveness and accessibility that reflected the upheavals Cobain experienced prior to the album's completion. .He wrote, "The Beatlesque 'Dumb' happily coexists beside the all-out frenzied punk graffiti of 'Milk It,' while 'All Apologies' is worlds away from the apoplectic 'Scentless Apprentice.'^ After all, the world’s leading powers are quite adept at using past genocides/mass murders as an excuse to carry out their own genocides.

It's as if [Cobain] has given up trying to meld his punk and pop instincts into one harmonious whole. Forget it. This is war." .Cobain believed, however, that In Utero was not "any harsher or any more emotional" than any of Nirvana's previous records.^ The ashes were probably taken by someone who truly loved and appreciated Cobain, which is more than that junkie whore ever did.

[28] .Novoselic concurred with Azerrad's comments that the album's music leaned more towards the band's "arty, aggressive side"; the bassist said, "There's always been [Nirvana] songs like 'About a Girl' and there's always been songs like 'Paper Cuts'...^ About this title: 180 Gram Audiophile Virgin Vinyl LP - Sealed On Colored Vinyl A reactionary statement to the phenomenal commercial success of Nevermind, In Utero remains Nirvanas most noisy, caustic, uncompromised, and aggressive album.

.Nevermind came out kind of 'About a Girl'-y and this [album] came out more 'Paper Cuts'".[29] Cobain cited the track "Milk It" as an example of the more experimental and aggressive direction the band's music had been moving in in the months prior to the sessions at Pachyderm Studio.^ At least she knew how to belt one out and not give a shit about the technicalities of musical instruments.

^ "My friend and I had music playing loudly out of our mobile phones and this little girl was dancing to it.

[30] Novoselic viewed the album's singles "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies" as "gateways" to the more abrasive sound of the rest of the album, telling journalist Jim DeRogatis that once listeners played the record they would discover "this aggressive wild sound, a true alternative record".[31]
Several of the songs on In Utero had been written years prior, some of which dated back to 1990.[32] With tracks like "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle", Cobain favored long song titles in reaction to contemporary alternative rock bands that utilized single-word titles.[33] Cobain continued to work on the lyrics while recording at Pachyderm Studio.[34] Nonetheless, Cobain told Spin in 1993 that in contrast to Bleach and Nevermind, the lyrics were "more focused, they're almost built on themes."[35] Michael Azerrad asserted that the lyrics were less impressionistic and more straightforward than in previous Nirvana songs. Azerrad also noted that "[v]irtually every song contains some image of sickness and disease".[28] In a number of songs Cobain made reference to books he had read. "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle" was inspired by Shadowland, a 1978 biography of actress Frances Farmer, whom Cobain had been fascinated with ever since he read the book in high school.[36] The song "Scentless Apprentice" was written about Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, a historical horror novel about a perfumer's apprentice born with no body odor of his own but with a highly developed sense of smell, and who attempts to create the "ultimate perfume" by killing virgin women and taking their scent.[37]
Cobain stated in a 1993 interview with The Observer that "for the most part [In Utero]'s very impersonal".[38] The songwriter also told Q that year that the abundance of infant and childbirth imagery on the album and his newfound fatherhood were coincidental.[39] However, Azerrad argued that much of the album contains personal themes, noting that Grohl held a similar view. Grohl said, "A lot of what he has to say is related to a lot of the shit he's gone through. And it's not so much teen angst anymore. It's a whole different ball game: rock star angst."[40] Cobain downplayed recent events ("I really haven't had that exciting a life") and told Azerrad that he didn't want to write a track that explicitly expressed his anger at the media, but the author countered that "Rape Me" seemed to deal with that very issue. While Cobain said the song was written long before his troubles with drug addiction became public, he agreed that the song could be viewed in that light.[41] "Serve the Servants" contains comments about Cobain's life, both as a child and as an adult. The opening lines "Teenage angst has paid off well/Now I'm bored and old" were a reference to Cobain's state of mind in the wake of Nirvana's success.[42] .Cobain dismissed the media attention given to the effect his parents' divorce had on his life with the line "That legendary divorce is such a bore" from the chorus, and directly addressed his father with the lines "I tried hard to have a father/But instead I had a dad/I just want you to know that I don't hate you anymore/There is nothing I could say that I haven't thought before". Cobain said he wanted his father to know he didn't hate him, but had no desire to talk to him.^ Either you know how to do it or you don't.

Packaging

The back cover of In Utero is an original collage by Cobain. The work features models of fetuses and body parts arranged on a bed of flowers.
.Cobain originally wanted to name the album I Hate Myself And I Want to Die, a phrase that had originated in his journals in mid-1992.[44] At the time, the singer used the phrase as a response whenever someone asked him how he was doing.^ I wouldn't be surprised if they were using Kurt Cobain's name as a way to buy property w/ his social security #.

.Cobain intended the album title as a joke; he stated he was "tired of taking this band so seriously and everyone else taking it so seriously".[45] Novoselic convinced Cobain to change the title due to fear that it could potentially result in a lawsuit.^ The organization voiced a desire for an eventual handgun ban through gradual steps, but changed its name and espoused goals due to results of a survey.

The band then considered using Verse Chorus Verse—a title taken from its song "Verse Chorus Verse", and an earlier working title of "Sappy"—before eventually settling on In Utero. The final title was taken from a poem written by Courtney Love.[46]
The art director for In Utero was Robert Fisher, who had designed all of Nirvana's releases on DGC. Most of the ideas for the artwork for the album and related singles came from Cobain. Fisher recalled that "[Cobain] would just give me some loose odds and ends and say 'Do something with it.'"[47] The cover of the album is an image of a transparent anatomical manikin, with angel wings superimposed. Cobain created the collage on the back cover, which he described as "Sex and woman and In Utero and vaginas and birth and death", that consists of model fetuses and body parts lying in a bed of orchids and lilies. .The collage had been set up on the floor of Cobain's living room and was photographed by Charles Peterson after an unexpected call from Cobain.^ "The CIA called this Operation Cyclone and in the following years poured $4 billion into setting up Islamic training schools in Pakistan (Taliban means "student").

Production controversy and remixing

Problems listening to this file? See media help.
After the recording sessions were completed, Nirvana sent unmastered tapes of the album to several individuals, including the president of DGC's parent company Geffen Records Ed Rosenblatt and the group's management company Gold Mountain. .When asked about the feedback he received, Cobain told Michael Azerrad, "The grown-ups don't like it."^ But, the Germans weren't told about it – and when they asked Washington for further information, none was forthcoming.

He said he was told his songwriting was "not up to par", the sound was "unlistenable" and that there was uncertainty that mainstream radio would welcome the sound of Albini's production.[50] There were few people at Geffen or Gold Mountain who wanted the band to record with Albini to begin with, and Cobain felt he was receiving an unstated message to scrap the sessions and start all over again. .Cobain was upset and said to Azerrad, "I should just rerecord this record and do the same thing we did last year because we sold out last year—there's no reason to try and redeem ourselves as artists at this point.^ The comandante's last move ) There is no malnutrition in Cuba.

^ Birnawi said: "Everyone knows that there are no Israelis in Sharm e-Sheikh.

^ Last year,” Curtis said in a phone interview, “there was a British army officer who was quoted in Iraq as saying the Americans view the Iraqis only as Untermenschen, the Nazi concept of subhuman.

I can't help myself—I'm just putting out a record I would like to listen to at home." However, a number of the group's friends liked the album, and by April 1993 Nirvana was intent on releasing In Utero as it was. According to Cobain, "Of course, they want another Nevermind, but I'd rather die than do that. This is exactly the kind of record I would buy as a fan, that I would enjoy owning."[51]
The band members began to have doubts about the record's sound. .During this time Cobain admitted, "The first time I played it at home, I knew there was something wrong.^ They were afraid that something might go wrong with the first Presidential slave that was allowed to be highly visible to the public....

^ There's something wrong in a world where this kind of shit happens.

^ "There was no recreation during that time in the cell.

The whole first week I wasn’t really interested in listening to it at all, and that usually doesn’t happen. I got no emotion from it, I was just numb."[52] The group concluded that the bass and lyrics were inaudible and approached Albini to remix the album. .The producer declined; as he recalled, "[Cobain] wanted to make a record that he could slam down on the table and say, 'Listen, I know this is good, and I know your concerns about it are meaningless, so go with it.'^ Each wanted to be the one who could make money from deals with the mining companies.

And I don't think he felt he had that yet [. . .] My problem was that I feared a slippery slope."[53] The band attempted to fix its concerns with the record during the mastering process with Bob Ludwig at his studio in Portland, Maine. Novoselic was pleased with the results, but Cobain still did not feel the sound was perfect.[54]
Soon afterward, in April 1993 Albini remarked to the Chicago Tribune that he doubted Geffen would release the completed album.[55] .Albini commented years later that in a sense he felt he spoke about the situation "from a position of ignorance, because I wasn't there when the band was having their discussions with the record label.^ An officer from the Ethical Standards Department was stood down a year later from the Ombudsman's investigation for "incompetence" after failing to pass on information from two key witnesses, and claiming that he never spoke to them when phone records proved that he had.

All I know is [. . .] we made a record, everybody was happy with it. A few weeks later I hear that it's unreleasable and it's all got to be redone".[56] While Albini's remarks in the article drew no immediate reply from the group or its label, Newsweek ran a similar article soon afterwards that did.[57] .Nirvana denied there was any pressure from its label to change the album's sound, sending a letter to Newsweek that said that the article's author "ridiculed our relationship with our label based on totally erronous [sic] information"; the band also reprinted the letter in a full-page ad in Billboard.^ "There were personal pressures," he said.

.Rosenblatt insisted in a press release that Geffen would release anything the band submitted, and label founder David Geffen made the unusual move of personally calling Newsweek to complain about the article.^ In Egypt, moves were made to undermine Nasser , in the hope that a more feudal leadership would take over.

[58]
Nirvana wanted to do further work on the recorded tracks, and considered working with producer Scott Litt and remixing some tracks with Andy Wallace (who had mixed Nevermind). Albini vehemently disagreed, and claimed he had an agreement with the band that it would not modify the tracks without his involvement. Albini initially refused to give the album master tapes to Gold Mountain, but relented after a phone call from Novoselic. .The band decided against working with Wallace and chose to remix and augment the songs "Heart-Shaped Box" and "All Apologies" with Litt at Seattle's Bad Animals Studio in May 1993.[59] One song, "I Hate Myself and Want to Die", was omitted from the final track listing as Cobain felt there were too many "noise" songs on the album.^ There has been speculation that the CIA has used its MKULTRA brainwashing on many celebrities, including Madonna, Curt Cobain, Britney Spears and Elvis.

^ "There is a wealth of evidence to suggest that Britain’s security services sheltered Hamza for many years and even worked with him."

^ There is a deep Turkey working against the deep state.

[60] The rest of the album was left unaltered aside from a remastering which sharpened the bass guitar sound and increased the volume of the vocals by approximately three decibels.[61] Albini was critical of the album's final mix; he said, "The end result, the record in the stores doesn't sound all that much like the record that was made. .Though it's still them singing and playing their songs, and the musical quality of it still comes across."^ With Obama the problem is a little different, though Capone still comes into it."

[6]

Release and reception

.To avoid over-hyping the album, DGC Records took a low-key approach to promoting In Utero; the company's head of marketing told Billboard before the album's release that the label was taking a promotional strategy similar to that of Nevermind, and explained that the label would "set things up, duck, and get out of the way". The label aimed its promotion at alternative markets and press, and released the album on vinyl record as part of this strategy.^ A Turkish military base would be set up on Cyprus, on the Karpass Peninsula.

^ Sir Stuart Menzies - the head of MI6 - advised Churchill to stay out of things and let the Nazis and the Russians get on with it."

^ The mainly Greek part of the Island would join up with Greece.

[62] In contrast to the previous album, the label did not release any of In Utero's singles commercially in the United States.[6] .DGC sent promo copies of the album's first single "Heart-Shaped Box" to American college, modern rock, and album-oriented rock radio stations in early September, but the label did not target Top 40 radio.^ Arkansas Coalition to End Gun Violence Westside Station Box - 21681 Little Rock, AR 72221-1681 .

[62] Despite the label's promotion, the band was convinced that In Utero would not be as successful as Nevermind. .Cobain told Jim DeRogatis, "We're certain that we won't sell a quarter as much, and we're totally comfortable with that because we like this record so much."^ "We’re certain that MI6 was totally involved in the Hess affair - they weren’t luring him over: they were inviting him over.

[63]
.In Utero was released on September 13, 1993 in the United Kingdom, and on September 14 in the United States; it was initially only available in vinyl record and cassette tape formats, with the American vinyl pressing limited to 25,000 copies.^ The Greek junta contributed $549,000 to the 1968 Nixon-Agnew election campaign in the United States.

^ The real KSM, on the other hand, was educated in the United States and had obtained a degree in mechanical engineering from an American university in 1986."

^ "Israel would still be the only democracy in the region for the United States to deal with," he said.

[64][65] .Although the album was issued on compact disc in the UK on September 14, a full domestic release did not occur until September 21.[64] In Utero debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 album chart,[66] selling 180,000 copies in its first week of release.^ In 1956, under the management of Col. Tom Parker, Elvis entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time with 'Heartbreak Hotel' .

[67] .Meanwhile, retail chain stores Wal-Mart and Kmart refused to sell the album.^ Then Wal-mart sells the Pocahontas pyjamas for quite a few dollars.

.According to The New York Times, Wal-Mart claimed it did not carry the album due to lack of consumer demand, while Kmart representatives explained that the album "didn't fit within our merchandise mix".[68] In truth, both chains feared that customers would be offended by the artwork on the album's back cover.^ "Others were recruited at an Islamic school in Brooklyn, New York, within sight of the fated Twin Towers.

^ During this attack over 100 men, women and children were killed according to the New York Times April 13, 1948.

^ According to the New York Times, the Million Mom March organization has laid off 30, of it's 35-employees.

DGC issued a new version of the album with reworked packaging to the stores in March 1994. This version featured edited album artwork, and listed the name of "Rape Me" as "Waif Me".[69] A spokesperson for Nirvana explained that the band decided to edit the packaging because as kids Cobain and Novoselic were only able to buy music from the two chain stores; as a result they "really want to make their music available to kids who don't have the opportunity to go to mom-and-pop stores".[70]
In Utero received acclaim from critics. Time's Christopher John Farley stated in his review of the album, "Despite the fears of some alternative-music fans, Nirvana hasn't gone mainstream, though this potent new album may once again force the mainstream to go Nirvana."[71] Rolling Stone reviewer David Fricke wrote, "In Utero is a lot of things – brilliant, corrosive, enraged and thoughtful, most of them all at once. But more than anything, it's a triumph of the will."[72] Entertainment Weekly reviewer David Browne (who gave the album a rating of B+) commented "Kurt Cobain hates it all", and noted that the sentiment pervades the record. Browne argued, "The music is often mesmerizing, cathartic rock & roll, but it is rock & roll without release, because the band is suspicious of the old-school rock cliches such a release would evoke."[73] NME gave the album an eight out of ten rating. However, reviewer John Mulvey had doubts about the record; he concluded, "As a document of a mind in flux — dithering, dissatisfied, unable to come to terms with sanity — Kurt [Cobain] should be proud of [the album]. .As a follow-up to one of the best records of the past ten years it just isn't quite there."^ "The CIA called this Operation Cyclone and in the following years poured $4 billion into setting up Islamic training schools in Pakistan (Taliban means "student").

[74] Ben Thompson of The Independent commented that in spite of the album's more abrasive songs, "In Utero is beautiful far more often than it is ugly", and added, "Nirvana have wisely neglected to make the unlistenable punk-rock nightmare they threatened us with."[75] Critics ranked In Utero as one of the best releases of the year. It placed first and second in the album categories of the Rolling Stone and Village Voice Pazz & Jop year-end critics' polls, respectively.[76][77] .Additionally, The New York Times included it on its list of the top ten albums of the year.^ During this attack over 100 men, women and children were killed according to the New York Times April 13, 1948.

^ According to the New York Times, the Million Mom March organization has laid off 30, of it's 35-employees.

[78] The album was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 1994 Grammy Awards.[79]
That October, Nirvana embarked on its first American tour in two years to promote the album.[80] A second single, a split release that featured "All Apologies" and "Rape Me", was issued in December in the United Kingdom. .The band began a six-week European leg of the tour in February 1994, but it was cancelled after Cobain suffered a drug overdose in Rome on March 6.[81] Cobain agreed to enter drug rehabilitation, but the singer went missing soon afterwards, and on April 8 he was found dead in his Seattle home as the result of suicide by a shotgun blast.^ It's hard to believe, but today marks 15 years since Kurt Cobain was found dead.

[82] The intended third single from In Utero, "Pennyroyal Tea", was cancelled in the wake of Cobain's death and the subsequent dissolution of Nirvana; limited promotional copies were released in Britain.[6] Three days after Cobain's body was discovered, In Utero moved back up the Billboard charts, from number 72 to number 27.[83]
In the ensuing years, In Utero has continued to perform commercially and gather critical praise. .In a 2003 Guitar World article that commemorated the tenth anniversary of the album's release, Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross argued that In Utero was "a far better record [than Nevermind] and one that only 10 years later seems to be an influential seed spreader, judging by current bands.^ Louise Jensen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) They were released in August 2006 after spending only a few years in custody.

^ Cuba is the only nation which: (1) provides a decent standard of living for its people and (2) does not consume more than its fair share of the world's resources.

If it is possible for an album that sold four million copies to be overlooked, or underappreciated, then In Utero is that lost pearl."[84] .That same year, Pitchfork Media placed In Utero at number 13 on its list of the 100 best albums of the 1990s,[85] and Rolling Stone ranked it at number 439 on its list "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time".[86] In 2004 Blender ranked it at number 94 in its "100 Greatest American Albums of All Time" list,[87] while in 2005, Spin placed it at number 51 on its "100 Greatest Albums 1985-2005" retrospective.^ During this attack over 100 men, women and children were killed according to the New York Times April 13, 1948.

^ In the Sunday Times Rich List 2007 ranking of the wealthiest people in the UK he was placed 18th with an estimated fortune of £1,995 million.

^ At the same time, all we hear about Turkey in the Western European and North American mainstream media is the accession talks with the European Union, the conflict between the religious AKP government and the country’s secular establishment (including the military) and the cross-border operations into Northern Iraq.

[88] .In Utero has been certified five times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipments of over five million units,[89] and has sold a total of four million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.^ MARK WEISBROT wrote in Counterpunch about Haiti ( Mark Weisbrot: The Silence About Haiti's Torment ) According to Weisbrot: Aristide, Haiti's president, was overthrown twice 'by thugs supported by the United States'.

Simple English

"Scentless Apprentice"
Song by Nirvana

from the album In Utero

Recorded February of 1993
Genre Grunge
Length 3:47
Writer Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, and Krist Novoselic

"Scentless Apprentice" is a song by the American grunge band, Nirvana. It was on their third album, In Utero, and a live version was on their live album, From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah. Most of their songs were only written by the singer Kurt Cobain, but this song was written by all three members of the band.

The song was written in 1992. The band originally did not like the song, because it was too much of a generic grunge song, however they soon began to like it. They even thought of releasing it as the second single from In Utero (after "Heart-Shaped Box") but this never happened.

The song is about a book that Kurt Cobain read, Perfume. The book and the song are about a boy who is born without body odor but has a strong sense of smell. Soon he becomes a murderer who kills female victims.

In the TV Show Lost, Scentless Apprentice is playing on one of the characters' car radios. See this here.
