Kurt Cobain is my favorite musician, and Nirvana is my favorite band (as one might assume from my e-mail address). Therefore, one may think my review to be biased. But this performance was without a doubt the best done on MTV's Unplugged series, and the best done by the band itself. Kurt's harsh voice draws from you emotion and thought, while the guitars by both he and Pat Smear soothe you. Krist Noveselic does a great job, keeping the deeper tone, which we all love, and Dave Grohl is amazing. The first time--for me anyway--that he has been seen doing backup vocals, especially on All Apologies. Key moments: Kurt's solo take on Pennyroyal Tea, the musical opus at the end of Plateau (a Meatpuppets cover, I think), and the powerful movement in the final verse of Where Did You Sleep Last Night? (another cover, but of Ledbelly).
