Feedback Mentality

Live Nirvana Bootography Rating: F  23%

Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
Feedback Mentality started life as a rare Japanese disc on the Small Clone label but in about 2005 it was reissued on the Dead Star Recording Company Label with the involvement of at least one person involved with the original disc. It's now a lot easier to find, the Label claims it was remastered but thats rubbish, its identical in sound quality to the original release, it just has some dead space stuck on the end of the disc to make the total running time look different.

"Feedback Mentality" has a several pressing and editing errors including a 1 second sound drop-out after "Blew", a sound stutter during the first second of "Rape Me", a small sound error during "Lithium" just before the 3:00 mark, and the sound drops out for a second at the end of "Smells Like Teen Spirit." None of these errors occur on "Banned For Life." While the mention of these errors sounds bad, the overall effect is easily overcome by the good attributes of this show.

This disc is missing the first two songs of the performance ("Breed" and "Drain You"), both of which are on "Banned For Life." The demolition at the end is also much shorter than the one found on "Banned For Life."

The sound quality is comparable between "Feedback Mentality" and "Banned For Life" (excellent crisp audience recording),"Feedback Mentality" sounds less generated than "Banned For Life" but suffers from some slight high end distortion. "Banned For Life" has been well edited, and much of the banter that goes on between songs is missing, but it is nearly impossible to detect. This between-song talk can be heard on Feedback Mentality.

Regardless of which version you find, the show is excellent and is something every Nirvana bootleg collector should own. "Feedback Mentality" has quite a few minor errors, but stays true to the recording. Get this show in whatever format you find it. Read the "Banned For Life" review for more commentary on the performance.

This Disc gets an F grade because it would have been easy to fix the editing errors for the reissue, but the bootleggers didn't bother (They fixed things on other reissues).

"In Bloom" Labeled As "In Broom"
