AllMusic

In Utero remains a shattering listen, whether it's viewed as Cobain's farewell letter or self-styled audience alienation. Few other records are as willfully difficult as this.

Rolling Stone

In Utero is a lot of things — brilliant, corrosive, enraged and thoughtful, most of them all at once. But more than anything, it's a triumph of the will.

NME
At times rowdy and unnerving, at others disarmingly gentle, 'In Utero' sounds like a great band staggering around looking for a direction they can psychologically deal with. A mess, but a bloody entertaining one.

A much more solid, varied, and more personal album compared to Nevermind. I can never put in order my favorite tracks on here, since they're all so neck-and-neck in terms of quality. By far their best album for me.

Favorite Tracks: Dumb, All Apologies, Tourette's, Rape Me, Scentless Apprentice, Heart Shaped Box
