Title: A Walk With Love and Death
Post by: Afterbirthmilkshake on April 24, 2017, 05:35:14 PM
Does anyone know if the film was made for the movie or of the music was made for the film or what?

Everything I've read indicates the soundtrack was done "backwards" meaning the wrote and recorded a soundtrack album from start to finish and then built the movie to match it.

i didn't realize that.  pretty cool way to make  a film.  build it around an album.

Currently listening to the LOVE disk and actually, despite what i have said previously, really quite enjoying it. It's good background music when and where you don't focus too much upon it. Except 'Scooba', hate that one!

Scooba is the single best moment on that disc. don't be a square.

You think!!?? I must clarify that it's not BAD music. It's just not what i think of as "Melvins". Now, many might say that's what makes it cool, but it's not for me, personally. It doesn't really sit well within the rest of the more ambient tracks either which is a big aspect of it for me.

My son loves Scooba, Ian! Have had some listens through especially the Death disc and first I was not certain what to think about it, but then it gradually grew and especially Flaming Creature is one of the best single tracks I`ve heard from the band, in a long time.

Yeah that's the one i like possibly the most too. That, Black Heath and Soberdelic are the best.

What about the harmonies with Steve, especially on "What's Wrong With You"? Certainly a new sound for the Melvins and they (Melvins and harmonies) sound great.

You’ve got to admit it’s a pretty damn catchy song. Nowhere near as good Flaming Creature or Euthanasia though.

Yeah certainly. Im just not into that, or rather, not into that with my Melvins. Ha! "my" Melvins.

Buddy Holiday made a good discovery of various Love moments also appearing in 'Hurray For Me Fuk You Paraquat Plus'. Quite notably the Scooba sample at the beginning and end of course!

Black Heath. There's a lot going on in that song. I'd love to see the parts charted out just to know how weird it really is. Dale is still very much a wizard.

I had a listen to the album again a couple of days ago and, you know, i've come to the conclusion this record, taken as a whole, just isn't very good. It has some really cool songs like Black Heath, Soberdelic, Euthanasia and Flaming Creature but those are off set by lots of poor material. The soundtrack side combined makes it's pretty weak really. You could easily lob off 50 minutes and make a much tighter, more impressive record. This makes it a lot better in my opinion. Something more akin to what i would love to see the band do again - produce a great, solid album from front to back.


1. Black Heath
2. Soberdelic
3. Euthanasia
4. Street Level St. Paul
5. Edgar The Elephant
6. The Hidden Joice
7. Flaming Creature
8. Christ Hammer
9. Cactus Party
10. Cardboa Negro
11. Pacomia Normal

I just listened to your remixed version of the album and thought it flowed pretty well. Good to get What's Wrong With You out of there (probably could've done with Christ Hammer being punted too) and the three songs you picked from disc 1 fit in well especially Pacomia Normal as the closer, that would've been a perfect Melvins album closer really.

Good job mate!

I agree with you. That one is just about acceptable to pass inspection.
