It contains three CDs and one DVD of previously rare or unreleased material, including B-sidesdemosand rehearsal and live recordings. Rumors of a posthumous Nirvana box set, or anthologyfirst surfaced in the mids, not long after the death of the band's singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain in April It was reported in Kerrang! Much of the dispute centered on " You Know You're Right ", a song recorded in January during the band's final studio session.
Grohl and Novoselic had wanted it for the box set, but Love blocked the song's release, and sued them for control of Nirvana's legacy. Love's lawsuit asserted that "the parties have fundamentally different concepts of how to manage the musical and artistic legacy of Kurt Cobain", which resulted "in a stalemate of decision making.
Inthe legal battle was settled, and "You Know You're Right" appeared on the "best-of" compilation Nirvana. This paved the way for what became the With the Lights Out box set, which arrived in Novemberover three years after its original release date but with more music than had originally been promised, including an acoustic demo of "You Know You're Right.
An online trailer was also released for the box set, featuring footage from the DVD and audio from the three CDs. With the Lights Out is packaged in heat-sensitive material which changes color when touched, revealing images of recording session tapes. Each of the three CDs loosely represents the rare recordings from three periods in Nirvana's history, in line with the band's three studio albums, BleachNevermind and In Uterowhich were released inand respectively.
The DVD contains rare live performances and rehearsals from throughout the band's career. It includes a page booklet which contains liner notes by Thurston Moore of the American rock band Sonic Youth and journalist Neil Straussas well as photographs and a chronological catalog of the band's recording history, including studio sessions, television and radio appearances, live performances and home demo recordings sessions. With the Lights Out received generally positive reviews from music critics,  many of whom saw it as a valuable glimpse into the band's evolution.
Julian Marshall of the NME called it "a humanising, comprehensive and often heartbreaking document of a man who, in five years, changed the face of music, almost by accident. However, several critics felt it contained too much second-rate material never intended for release.
Mark Richardson of Pitchfork wrote, "Those hoping for a trove of overlooked gems will be disappointed Simply put, there's enough good stuff here for a solid single disc.
All songs written by Kurt Cobainexcept where noted. It contains 19 tracks from the band's rarities box set, With the Lights Outas well as three previously unreleased recordings: "Spank Thru," from the " Fecal Matter " demoa studio recording of " Sappy ", and a boombox demo of " Come as You Are ".

All three of these would have fit nicely on the box and arguably should have been there, especially "Spank Thru," which is the best of the earliest Nirvana-related recordingsand for obsessives, they're enough to warrant a grudging, hesitant purchase.
The real question is, whether Sliver is worthwhile for serious fans who nevertheless for whatever reason don't want three discs of demos and outtakes. The answer is: kinda. Most of the major songs from With the Lights Out are here, but not all of them. But it has to be said that due to its source material of home recordings and lo-fi tapes, Sliver, like With the Lights Out, is not easy listening and demands listeners' utmost attention -- and if listeners are willing to concentrate that hard on Nirvana rarities, they'd probably be better off getting three discs of the stuff instead of just one.

After a decade dominated by synthetic music, You Know Youre Right (Home Demo) - Nirvana - Sliver: The Best Of The Box (CD), guitars made a vigorous comeback in the 90s. They made their way into all corners of independent rock, independent from the system and the mainstream. An alternate style that was born out of the subversive and homemade spirit of punk found in Lou Reed's Velvet You Know Youre Right (Home Demo) - Nirvana - Sliver: The Best Of The Box (CD) as You Know Youre Right (Home Demo) - Nirvana - Sliver: The Best Of The Box (CD) as Iggy Pop's Stooges.
But you can count the pioneers of the genre who are still alive on two fingers: Jerry Lee Lewis and Wanda Jackson. Lewis was a wild rocker signed with Sun Records who made history by igniting his instrument and transforming church music, country and boogie-woogie into wicked rock'n'roll.
Jackson was a country singer who had a brilliant career alongside Elvis. Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the s.
