Although I bought via Bandcamp so...

not sure what to think. i like it but probably i still prefer TMKA which sounded more raw and more complete as a whole

I just never expected a follow up album, so glad it was released. Anything Trevor records is a bonus too!

Didn't read the article but if he's talking about antobiotics being overused. I believe he is right.

Also...pretty funny that what, there's like 300 million American's and they can't find anyone to go up against Trump?  :lol:
The country itself is more messed up than Buzz's opinion.

There you have it.

Proof music is subjective!

We all have guilty albums. Pretty sure I even have a Pearl Jam album in my top twenty... :lol:
Favorite albums can mark a time in history, a place, friends, etc...can be more than music or name dropping obscure bands for imaginary credits.

Slightly off topic, but does anyone know what the last Melvins album recorded to tape was? I would guess maybe POTRE was the first Melvins album recorded purely digital w/ protool setup?

Colossus Of Destiny? If that counts.

Thanks, I love Melvins and have for ages but online is my only outlet here so yeah, sometimse I think about this stuff.
It's not really heavyness though.

Think Tool did the same thing, they had all these dark creepy songs in the 90s but were singing about fisting and heaps of sexual inneundeo in their lyrics as an offset to the seriousness of the music.

So Tool later went ultra serious with their lyrics and music and Melvins went opposite with silly lyrics, song titles and (a lot of the time) music.

Just an observation really.

I've been thinking about it for a while now, probably around a year, maybe longer. Just trying to figure out how they've evolved over the years and it's not about distortion or heaviness. It seems that in the past, a lot of the Melvin's essential DNA, what makes them Melvins is is that they presented themselves with the sideshow bob appearance, the muumuu, the gardening gloves, the ridiculous lyrics, the sense of humour. BUT. At the same time their music was totally opposite, it was nasty, heavy, punishing, savage, sharp or sludgy or disturbing. They worked in unison, two almost ironic juxtapositions if you will. This lasted for ages. 

From Dadaism nonsensical lyrics of Ozma mixed with brutal delivery. The quite clean precises delivery of the bootlicker opposed by a sinister tone and sharp delivery of all those songs. loose laid back feel on Honky while strongly opposed by a disturbing ambience throughout. The more you look at it the more it appears, the stark contrast they've always maintained.

However I could never place my finger on why but only recently I think it's because the newer albums don't have this.
It seems these days the ridiculousness of the Melvin s themselves has actually translated across into the music and to me, it just doesn't work as well.  they play a straight game these days.

nstead of the odd contradiction of the seriousness of their music mixed in with their sense of humour...these days it's crept across so much so that the contradiction is lost and all that is sometimes left is just that. 99 Bottles, or some of the covers.

It's not about heavy guitars or Melvins not making Lysol anymore. It's more the fact that that I think they've lost that essential ingredient which made Melvins the Melvins. It's not a diss, it's not a criticism but it's definitely the feeling I get when I hear their modern records to those of 15+ years ago.

There are some nasty/solid bits in this PAT album and the contractitions are stil there, but there are times where it just goes straight up and misses out on thisjuxtaposition d the'yve had for so many years. dont abnd me again i'm actually half drunk lol and typed this out in one go

Oh yeah, I forgot about 2011 and Soundwave.

I didn't include the 90's. Just hoping to figure out a pattern here, I do assume they'll be back in 2021 though!
Hopefully Tool tour Australia with their imminent album or something and bring along Melvins. Could happen!

I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed Melvins didn't come back to Australia on this PAT album cycle.

2009, 2013, 2017...so maybe 2021?

*Buzz obviously also came out in 2014 for the acoustic tour. Missed that one though!
