CD Reviews

A Nirvana Collectors' Item
Kurdt Fan81 | Los Angeles | 12/23/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This EP originally was released in Austrailia in early 1992 and later released in Japan (as noted in With the Lights Out boxed set). I bought this in 1994 after the death of Kurt Cobain for 30 dollars and I've always treasured it because it is rarer than the albums and commericial singles. The music itself is good. "Even in His Youth" IS NOT included on With the Lights Out and is only available on the Smells Like Teen Spirit single. Four songs were covers recorded for the BBC ("Turnaround", "D-7", "Son of a Gun" and "Molly's Lips"). Except for "D-7" the other three appear on Incesticide but D-7 is available in the With the Lights Out boxed set. The other two tracks were unreleased on albums. "Aneurysm" appears on incesticide but this version only appears on With the Lights Out and Smells Like Teen Spirt single. The Japanese version includes text in Japanese and a black and white photo. The design is very similar to Nevermind except with more yellow in the water. Basically, with the release of With the Lights Out and Incesticide, the only reason to get this is for an otherwise unattainable version of "Even in His Youth." This is only for major collectors of Nirvana. I'd would give it a 5 as a die-hard Nirvana fan but because it's pricey for its length and 80% of the material is available elsewhere I must give it a 4."
Not Worth It

"i think i dissed in my last review , maybe they'llpost this one. The songs are: 1. Aneyerism (From Incesticide)2. Turnaround (From Incesticide) 3. D7 (One of the best Nirvana songs, but not worth almost forty dollars with S+H) 4. Molly's Lips (From Incesticide) 5. Son of a Gun (From Incesticide) 6. Even in His Youth (You can get it on the teen spirit single)The Nirvana box set (not singles collection) will probably be out in 3 or 4 months, and will probably include all these songs. Wait for that. If you don't own Incesticide yet, buy that. It's a way better b-sides collection. It's less than half the price of this and there are 15 songs instead of 6.And why am I the only one who puts my name in my reviews?"

"Hormoaning is an EP (not an album). It was released in Australia and Japan only, about 30,000 copies in each of those two countries. Anyway at the time it kicked ass! rare Nirvana songs. Although that version of 'Aneurysm' and 'Even In His Youth' were both already available as b-sides on the 'Smells Like Teen Spirit single'(a better version of Aneurysm can be found on the Incesticide album). The song 'D7' was also already available as a b-side on the 'Lithium' single. The songs 'Turnaround', 'Son Of A Gun' and 'Molly's Lips' were released shortly after 'Hormaoning' on the 'Incesticide' album. As it is, it is a nice little collection of some of the great, less well known Nirvana songs. As it was only a limited edition release it is hard to find a real copy that is not fake, but its a good collectors item. The songs arn't rare, they were all available on other releases by the end of 1992 anyway."
