Nirvana: Nevermind (Geffen)
Simon Reynolds, The New York Times, 24 November 1991
NIRVANA'S VERTIGINOUS ascent to stardom has to be the years most surprising success story. The single Smells Like Teen Spirit has been in heavy rotation on MTV, while the album Nevermind (David Geffen Company 24425; all three formats) has sold more than half a million copies in a couple of months and is currently lodged in the Top Ten.
