Here here. Definitely one of the greatest debut albums of all time.



Sometimes I think that out in the ether somewhere there is this oil well of artistic creativity and greatness, and you’re lucky to get a few drops of it here and there over the years.  I also think that, even given all the bullshit that came later, for about 18 months in 1989-1990 Nirvana mainlined directly into the motherlode of this oil well.  “Bleach” could be, probably is, the greatest debut record ever.  Punkmetal stoner rock to its fullest expression.
