Watch Nirvana: Live at the Paramount - Alternative Versions.
As a concert film, this is a mediocre effort. It is comprised of shaky
camera shots, blurry pans of the crowd, and the absolute darkness on
and off stage.
As far as the music goes, it is decently rendered performance by Kobain
and sidekicks. There appears to be a deep lack of connection by Kurt
with the audience, and it is clear why Pat Fear was called into duty -
the guitar playing was too much one person - after all there only was
one Johnny Ramone.
During the 1980's which immediately preceded the 'grunge' of the late
80's (Pixies), and early 90's (Nirvana), hardcore punk was alive and
well in Orange County, CA. I had the privilege of seeing many shows at
the historic Fender's Ballroom in Long Beach including the Adolescents,
Exploited, 7 Seconds, Angry Samoans, U.K. Subs and so on. A typical
punk show of the time was lots of smoke, very dark, and impossible to
do any type of watchable filming. Clearly, none of these obstacles were
ever taken into account and what results is the viewer having the
experience of looking in darkened glass windows into a bunch of
Particular irritating is the t-shirt and jeans girl/boy on each side of
the stage moving spastically the entire time. At one point a bubble
machine is seen continuously blowing bubbles. After viewing the
concert, even though I love Nirvana's albums, I have no desire to have
been there - not like the show I went to at the Hollywood Palladium
with the Ramones and Social Distortion in 1986. What is lacking is a
sense of viewer participation - we as the fourth wall are not shown the
atmosphere of the audience; what is was like to be there; what people
were doing; how many and how big were the mosh (slam) pits - there is
no sense of atmosphere in which to gauge the experience - quite unlike
DA Pennebaker's concert documentaries.
The sound on the blu-ray in not particularly impressive, soundstage
wise, the bass is present, although the treble is non existent - this
does not even bring up the problem on audio/video sync apparent
throughout. I do not know why they even advertise 5.1 as there is only
2.0 - you will be deeply disappointed expecting a surround sound
All in all, if you are a die hard Nirvana fan, then by all means see
it. If you are not or are not a rock historian - I would give this a
pass, and put on In Utero instead with a good pair of Sennheiser or
Video 4/10 Audio 6/10 Quality of performance 7/10 Punk rock or grunge
does not mean sloppy guitar playing or lots of distortion or amateurish
guitar skills (see Johnny Thunders, Rikk Agnew, Mike Ness, etc).
Unfortunately this concert does not capture Kobain at his best -
fortunately we have the MTV unplugged Special which fully showcases
Kobain's charisma, singing and guitar playing with great backup by the
Meat Puppets. By all means see Nirvana Unplugged which I give a 10/10,
especially if this is going to be your introduction to the band.
