I had to mature a little to really appreciate this cd. I bought it after Nevermind, and wasn't ready for the unpolished, raw emotion of it. Now I prefer to listen to it over Nevermind. Track 11, Sifting, is one of my favorite Nirvana songs. You can really hear the pain in Kurt Cobain's voice when he is screaming "preacher said, teacher said, don't have nothing for you". Sadly, this track was never a big hit and rarely played live, outshadowed by the soulful About A Girl, and more punk influenced School.

Jason Everman was credited as playing 2nd guitar on the album. He actually did not, he just fronted the money to have them recorded so they put him on it. He did however play with them for a while at some of their shows.
