Just over 20 years ago, Nirvana's final album, In Utero was released, recorded by Steve Albini, outspoken engineer extraordinaire. In 1992, shortly before they formally agreed on his involvement, Albini wrote to the band and laid bare his philosophy in a pitch letter that is fascinating from start to end and worth every minute of your time. It reads like a manifesto, a plea for simplicity when it comes to recording and mixing, for purity throughout the entire process. This rarely happens nowadays.
