Just listening to this one again. Ignoring my previous comment from a few years ago above, this is a great modern Melvins release!

I knew you would come around eventually! I only listened to this again last week and it still makes me shake my head how good it is.

Just listening to this one again. Ignoring my previous comment from a few years ago above, this is a great modern Melvins release! It flows together so, so well. Goodness i wish this had been a full album - far too much cool stuff going on to tuck it away as an EP that more casual fans may well never explore or hear about. Add 20 minutes and stick 4 more songs on here and it would have been a fabulous end to the BB era. I always remember some of the negativity here when we first heard 'The War On Wisdom', now that stands as a fine slice of Melvinsness! As does the rest too. Not that dissimilar to the previous Big Melvins records either really when one reflects back.

I think one of the reasons that it resonates so well and will hold up as  being close to perfect is that it  is an EP and leaves you wanting more (less is more). Loved this when it came out and still do. It's glorious and flows perfect.
I hope some day that they tour with BB again. That band would leave anyone with their jaw on the floor.
(or as Dale so perfectly said in Colossus of Destiny "This band will put your dick in the dirt"  :lol: )
