Personally not a fan of the thin sound here, which is strange because I'm a big fan of Albini's engineering. 'Scentless Apprentice' in particular has all the bite taken out of that amazing riff. Kind of wish I'd picked up the original version.

Also, the photoshopping around the angel figure to invert the original background is just amateur.

How many of these were pressed? Usually a RSD release like this would be $50+ after a few years, but this has stayed between $25-$35 now. It's a great album and pressing by the way. There's some subtle differences in the mixes to that makes some of the songs actually sound different. Serve the Servants has a different guitar solo in this version. I think there's a few more changes like that, but I forget what they were.

A great pressing, no skips , perfect audio quality , just wish it was realeased with hidden " Gallons ... " track , but you can't have everything now . 4 1/2 stars !

In Utero is one of my all time favorite records ever! I was a young teenager when Nirvana came out and I didn't really catch wind of them until Unplugged because I lived in a small town with not much in the way of radio stations. Once I was made aware of Nirvana, I fell in love, I ran out and got all of their tapes. Yeah... Tapes!
Anyways, Nevermind of course had the hits, and I loved most of the songs on there. But In Utero had something else, it just sounded real! Even as a young teen I was drawn to it. It sounded darker and heavier and even the lyrics seemed more vivid. I wasn't sure if babies did smell like butter, but with the conviction of the songs, I was convinced they must!
I haven't gotten the original In Utero on vinyl as my friend wants to sell me his, but this one is great. Being a huge Nirvana and Albini fan, I won't mind at all having both versions.
If you are thinking about getting this, and you love this album, and you love the Albini sound, I'd say go for it!

What a treat to hear the album like this. It sounds like they're playing live in my living room. Quiet and bombastic. Great pressing.

dead silent pressing and ups the intensity of the recordings. this really rips.

I was really anticipating this version of the album, and I must say the differences I heard on "Serve the Servants" pulled me in right away, but the rest of the album's changes are somewhat anticlimactic, ultimately they are not enough to make this release feel essential. Albini's "2013 Mix" plays beautifully, while furthering the band's vision of an album that is visceral, raw, and offensive, but goes backwards a bit on the original intention of creating a quickly recorded album, without a lot of tinkering for commercial appeal. Steve throughout the album brings certain oddities and accents in and up in the mix, a real focus on the instrumentation and arrangements, but overall the mix doesn't really end up offering anything that radical to the casual ear. It's an interesting listen a few times around for the diehards only, and I personally like the alternate take guitar solo on "Serve The Servants", but the "Original" “In Utero” was just perfect, and when comparing the two, “2013” doesn't seem all that necessary. I would have preferred the excellent "Live And Loud" getting a proper release on vinyl. Now that's something to anticipate!!!

Good album. Just wish it was pressed better. Defect on Side B that causes multiple skips.

one of the most 'game-changer' type listening experiences ive ever had with any remix/reissue ever
bias for nirvana plays no role in that too
