This is the soundtrack to the Kurt Cobain documentary, Cobain: Montage of Heck. It was compiled by the director of the film, Brett Morgen. For this tracklist, Brett listened to over 200 hours of audio, assembling 31 tracks worth of unreleased content. I think of this project as a companion to the film in that it tells the story in an aural manner, it was constructed to unfold with a loose narrative, to stand on its own. But if you have seen the film, that experience will deepen your understanding of the Montage of Heck album. Brett Morgen (Rolling Stone 2015).
Watching Brett Morgen’s 2015 documentary Montage of Heck, assembled from Kurt Cobain’s own journals, home-taped monologues, and family home videos, you felt a profound sense of intimacy, even violation. Eavesdropping on Cobain has been a lurid national pastime for nearly 20 years now, from 2003's Journals to the scraps collected on the With the Lights Out box, but Morgen took us closer than even the most brazen imagined we should be allowed to go: Courtney and Kurt, naked and bantering in the bathroom on home video about who gets to play. Cobain fan sites have complained that the Home Recordings crosses the line into exploitation, but this line was crossed years ago, and has been obliterated and trampled many times since. The Home Recordings marks the point where that exploitation enters the absurd. It’s a sad bookend to a captivating film, and an ignoble use of a trove of material.
In the case of former Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, it got thrust on him when the band's 1991 studio album Nevermind catapulted to the top of the . charts and brought grunge music into the mainstream spotlight. Kurt Cobain - Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings is an intimate look at the home recordings of Kurt Cobain. These solo recordings and audio fragments were compiled by director Brett Morgen for the soundtrack to the Cobain documentary film Montage of Heck, mostly from tapes made while living with then-girlfriend Tracy Marander and home videos while he was with Courtney Love. In an interview with Rolling Stone, director Brett Morgan describes what he intends the album to accomplish: I curated the album to create a feeling that the listener was sitting in Kurt's apartment in Olympia, Washington, in the late Eighties, and bearing witness to his creation.
