Nirvana – Nevermind

(20th Anniversary Remastered Edition) [Double CD]

With 30 million copies sold worldwide since its original release on 24 September 1991, Nevermind is as much a part of the classic rock canon as anything by the Stones or The Beatles, Dylan or The Clash. But then, you know that. It’s been in the uppermost reaches of any best-albums-ever list for as long as this writer can remember; its legacy, its influence, is undeniable. And what its unexpected success – a then-optimistic label estimate of selling 250,000 copies was blown out of the water – meant for primary songwriter Kurt Cobain has been well-documented. The frontman had a troubled relationship with fame: on the one hand he’d been desperate for it, but on the other he missed his anonymity desperately. And we all know what happened in April 1994, leading to the end of Nirvana after just three studio LPs and less than six years as a record-releasing force.–Mike Diver - read More

(20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

Recorded over 6 months in 1991 in Berlin and Dublin, Achtung Baby was U2′s seventh studio album. It was produced by Daniel Lanois , Brian Eno and Steve Lillywhite and mixed and engineered by Flood. Led by “The Fly”, Achtung Baby spawned four more huge hit singles, “Mysterious Ways”, “One”, “Even Better Than The Real Thing” and “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses”. Heralded by Rolling Stone’s Robert Hilburn as “U2’s daring descent into darkness”, the album was awarded the Grammy for Best Rock Performance and became one of the most acclaimed rock records of the nineties and of U2′s career. As Bono said at the time, it was “the sound of four men chopping down the Joshua Tree”.
