With regard to the edits on Nevermind,* you have to keep in mind that my very favorite act of the mid 90s was Portishead. I thought of the brash edits on Nevermind as bold post-modernism.

* I had ignored the album for a few years -- as mentioned, I didn't listen to commercial radio by then -- but, having investigated grunge scene early on [going as far as Seattle], I'd decided that rock really was moribund. I'd tuned out by the time Nevermind started making cultural waves.
