4 stars Nirvana is not the only the Grunge band of Kurt Cobain, but, between 60's and 70's a British band who could have become very popular but, for various reasons, failed to become a success band but that becomes a cult band. Nirvana was the band of Patrick campbell-lyons and Alex Spyropulos, two songwriters who decided to form a band that we could now define a mix betwwen The Beatles ("Revolver"/ "Rubber Soul" style), The Moody Blues, Procol Harum with echoes of Aphrodite's Child (pre "666") and the POP side of The Kinks. At the time the mix that I described was wanted by the labels and the Island do not let them get away, throwing them as their response to Procol Harum. Reflecting a little on this fact that I recognize that Island was sincere. Yet today rereading the style of Nirvana and Nirvana Procol Harum I find that Nirvana have produced a music aged best. Probably because most POP, most romantic and without fthe fixing patterns of R&B. Honestly Nirvana sound based less on keyboards (present, present) because the use of orchestral arrangements and a relaxing atmosphere, almost Folk, make the most intriguing the music of Nirvana. This discussion is not to say that Nirvana is better of Procol Harum because in reality both bands have produced excellent music.

"Forever Changing; An Introduction To Nirvana" is a good compilation based on 1967/ 1968 production for Island plus two songs, one from 1986 (From 1967/ 1968 and previously unreleased?) and one from 2003 (previously unreleased?). "Forever Changing" is a good introduction to Nirvana and his Baroque POP/ Progressive with good songs ("Pentecoste Hotel", "The Touchables (All Of Us)", "Rainbow Chaser", "Girl In The Park", "In Courtyard Of The Stars", "Take This Hand" and "Melanie Blue" of all, for me) and in my vision a great introduction to Nirvana if you do not own anything of this band.
