Discogs can be helpful here on a number of fronts.

And when you do find what's considered the best pressing (like the MoFi reissue, which has lots of glowing reviews), you can often find a good deal.


I don't understand how you found all this info on discogs, but I was really happy with the MoFi Pinkerton. Do it again for Nirvana's In Utero, please.

Yes, but it was easy for me to find. I've only made 2 posts about Pinkerton. Now, shut up, and tell me which In Utero to buy.

You've got a couple of options with In Utero.

The Steve Albini mix from 2013 is highly regarded (I've got it; it sounds great), and I would recommend that: https://www.discogs.com/Nirvana-In-Uter ... se/5146137

If you'd rather have the original mix, you could get the 3xLP version that also has a disc of b-sides and a handful of remixes (I also have this and it's a great package): https://www.discogs.com/Nirvana-In-Uter ... se/4940893

There's also a 1xLP version from 2008 that's just the original LP, if you'd rather go that route (reviews are not as stellar for this one): https://www.discogs.com/Nirvana-In-Uter ... se/1559511

The 2013 mix goes on sale for a pretty deep discount every so often. The regular album too. The 3LP set not so much. I have both the 2013 mix and the regular and enjoy listening to both.

Just to point out, both versions of In Utero are an "Albini mix", since he recorded and mixed the original album (aside from the two singles, which were remixed by Scott Litt).

The 2013 mix is meant to be a fun alternative which brings out different elements on the tapes, not a representation of the album proper, or how it "should have been".

I enjoy both versions too, but the original mix is probably the one you want if you only get one IMO.

so basically it's like Monster and Monster Remix, yeah?

I did it once so that I could get the Fiona Apple album. It was alright, but the per album cost didn’t add up for me. There are complaints of people receiving damaged albums, or the wrong album, and customer service being completely useless. I never had that issue though.

Although I’d join again for 3 months for an exclusive album I really wanted, I’m not crazy about the idea of not being able to choose what you get. Though, if they announce an album you aren’t jazzed about, you can decide to swap it for an album in their store if it’s in stock.
