Nirvana: Incesticide [DGC, 1992]
A lot of these rags and bones and demos and B-sides (including four Hormoaning collectibles) are so on that I figured maybe I'd underrated Bleach until I played it again. But though memorable albums have been recorded for $600, they haven't usually been memorable rock albums--electric music doesn't travel without quality controls. In any case, the trademark interactions are more emphatic on the tracks Bleach's Jack Endino didn't record, which generally means the recent ones. Not a great song band yet. Just a great, um, alternative band, which is rare enough.
