I had not heard these guys since that grungy flood of the early 1990s, but when something is this out---be it from a Beefheart artsy instinct or just pure post-punk noise, I bite. As I did yesterday hearing this in a use shop yesterday: fresh with a yearly work bonus and on one of my vinyl eating binges.
I am not sure if you would call these pieces songs or slabs or song slab fragments. Then again, who gives a Stratocastor: The huge, Black Sabbathy riffs here are like you are hearing 1970s metal at the wrong speed, and then there is that voice, that booming, tormented vocal, so deliberate and menacing. Listening to this is like drowning in very delicious mud.
No one should be allowed to make sounds like this, not even cavemen. But the Melvins do, and in lies the brilliant idiocy of this album
Back to this art/noise deal, as if it did matter. Is this post rock statement, rock after nuclear attack, some kind of genius ramshackle deconstruction of music after the blast, or bored over grown children in their garage, playing with GI Joe Les Pauls.
I don't know, but I love these geniuses, these morons. I love every second of this music
this is a really heavy album that is condensed into one super track. every song on it is fantastic, with the stand out being "with teeth", which is the final song on here.
if you're into heavy music already and don't own this you'll love it. if you're looking to get into the melvins i'd recommend that you start with either this or stoner witch. aside from what everyone says about post-lysol melvins, they're actually not really that bad. they changed a bit, but i still like it.

I love every song, this album is way too short, I just keep playing it over and over. Some of the heaviest stuff I've ever heard.Published 13 months ago by Steven A. Langford
A great noisy ,distorted, sonic wall of metal sludge from the Melvins. Their cover of the Flipper song " SACRIFICE " is incredible. PLAY IT LOUD OR NOT AT ALL.Published 14 months ago by chris
Some of their best music. Really heavy riffs. The ballad of Dwight Fry is on here, an old Alice Cooper song.Published 20 months ago by jesse i chitty
Yeah, it's one 31+ minute track, but it is 31 minutes and change of awesome. It takes about 12 minutes to start rolling, but once it does it is a beautiful slab of sludge.Published on December 26, 2013 by Rob H
I like the Melvins a lot, and many regard this as their best album. Until now, I thought that maybe I liked the Crybaby the best, but then again – what do I know? Read morePublished on October 5, 2013 by Surferofromantica
