Editorial Reviews

The Melvins will release a brand new studio album with the delightful title 'Freak Puke', via Ipecac Recordings.
Nothing ever stays entirely in one place very long around the Melvins, and the constantly evolving underground hard rock geniuses have undergone a temporary lineup and name change for the recording of 'Freak Puke'.
While their last three albums featured a two-drummer, four-piece roster augmented by Big Business members Jared Warren and Coady Willis, the new record finds the group in a more familiar three-piece setting.
Founding guitarist / singer Buzz Osbourne and his longtime drumming partner Dale Crover will be joined by bassist Trevor Dunn for this record, and the trio will operate under the name Melvins Lite.
The Melvins Lite lineup is in addition to, not replacing, the four-piece version of the band


1. Mr. Rip Off
2. Inner Ear Rupture
3. Baby, Won't You Weird Me Out

Wait, didn't the Melvins just release and tour on their excellent free EP, The Bulls and The Bees? How is it possible they already have another album out? Well, it's true. They're already back with a new full length album and they're planning a record breaking tour in the fall.

Freak Puke does have a pretty big difference from Melvins albums that have come out in recent years. Second drummer Coady Willis and bassist Jared Warren are not on this album. Instead we have Trevor Dunn playing stand up bass. He's no stranger to The Melvins though. He played bass on their "Houdini Live 2005" album and has also played with Buzz and Dale in Fantomas.

Needless to say this album sounds a lot different than their recent efforts (not that their recent efforts sound the same). If it sounded like any previous Melvins I would probably compare it to Honky or Stag, maybe even the Bootlicker although I think the album is much heavier than The Bootlicker. Like their other albums it really is it's own unique entry in their discography.

Honestly, this is one of the hardest albums in their discography to review. Sometimes it reminds me of their more 70's rock inspired songs (Leon vs the Revolution), sometimes it reminds me of their heavier sludge work (A Growing Disgust), sometimes it reminds me of an odd hybrid of Trevor's jazz influences combined with Buzz's indistinguishable guitar work (Baby, Won't You Weird Me Out), and that's barely the tip of the iceberg. There's a lot of depth to these songs and it's impossible to notice everything going on after a few listens.

So should you get the album? Absolutely! However, if you're just wanting a straight forward hard-rock album that's going to make sense on the first listen you probably aren't going to find that here.

Its getting pretty hard to review Melvins albums. What does one really say at this point besides, "Buzz and Dale continue to make great albums that challenge their fans but still sound like the Melvins. This time they did (whatever the unique but never gimmicky approach to their music is on this album) with (current bass player) and the results are great!" ?

Anyway, "Freak Puke" is a great Melvins album. This time out, they bill themselves as "Melvins Lite" because Jared and Coady aren't on this album, and Trevor Dunn is manning a stand up bass (playing with no amp of any kind) to cover the low end. Don't be fooled by the "Lite" part of the title, though, this is not a sequel to "The Bootlicker" and fans will have plenty of loud guitars, heavy drums and snarling vocals to enjoy. Mr. Dunn does an excellent job on bass, you'll hear jazz influnced plucking as well as some cool sounding bow work, with it all being very up in the mix, so again, the sonic weight is definitely there and just because its an upright bass with no amp hardly means its a "Lite" sound.

While this approach with an upright bass may sound like just a neat gimmick, it really works well and blends with Buzz and Dale just as good as any other instrumental line up they've done over the years. Its also worth noting that the emphasis on this album is on songs. There is very little noise mongering on display (though a Melvins album will always have some) and what is here doesn't stay too long. In a lot of respects you could compare "Freak Puke" to "Nude With Boots" given the surplus of 70's rock riffage on display and the tight focused songs.

Also worth noting is the cover of Wings "Let Me Roll It." Its a pretty faithful cover and its pretty awesome.

I guess they're Melvins 'lite' on this record because Jared and Cody aren't on it and so it's not the 'Melvins'. It's definitely a 'heavy' record and sounds great. When I read that it would be all upright-acoustic bass on this one and saw the 'lite' i figured it would be similar to the 'an evening with the melvins' performances of a few years ago where they softened up their sound. however there are lots of great loud guitars and buzzo snarling screaming on this one. can't wait to get my hard copy of this one :)

Really like this band. Caught the Melvin's Lite live recently. Great show. Not a huge fan of the Melvin's regular stuff. Bought Freak Puke and can't get enough. Trevor Dunn makes everything better. Really like the McCartney cover of Let Me Roll It. Solid album. Nothing 'Lite' about it.

... buy this immediately!

Here's ANOTHER great CD from a band with plenty of great CDs!

Heavy, tight, great songs and a sense of humor - just how I like my Melvins!

Decent album that sounds like something from the 70's. Not you're average sounding Melvin's record. It's a little different but in a good way.

This is one killer album. I've listened to it 20+ times and counting and it has yet to tire on me. I have one gripe though. The vinyl release. Collector/limited edition vinyl is cool, but why not also put out just a standard vinyl release, bare bones even. These collector issues always sell out quick and than you got the hounds charging hundreds- I just want the music, man, on good 'ol wax!
