Failure, Comfort

This Los Angeles group’s 1992 debut is raw, filthy and corroded like Nirvana’s In Utero. Which makes sense: Steve Albini produced the record, which features angular tunes like “Submission” and loud-quiet-loud anthems like “Something.” Comfort failed to yield a Buzz Bin-worthy track, but their arty approach to rock makes it one of the weirder records to come out of the ’90s.
