Holy Barbarians blew me away.

Sooo good.

Loving this new album, a step above the Big Business stuff in my opinion.  Feels like it has more emotion.

I think he may have meant "emotion" in more general terms as in "genuine intent" or more "true" or such.

My apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere, but has anyone decoded the secret message in the inside cover art?  I don't have a magnifier or mirror handy  :lol:

and i picked up a shovel and i washed it down. can't deal with the hands and the body as i bought them another round. and the mole and the money and i can't deny as i picked up a gun from the table and i told them another lie. gonna tell you a story and it ain't no lie i put my hand in my pocket and looked inside. saw the smoke and the fire and i watched it burn and i told him you're not forgiven and i said that he'll never learn.

Thank you sir!

I agree but would word it differently...

A step in a different direction that has totally blown my mind. Bulls and Bees was an awesome new Melvins record I wanted, Freak Puke is an unexpected masterpiece that I didn't know was possible.

I think I listened to this album 10 times in a row while remodeling our bathroom today and it just gets better and better.  I don't think it's better than any 4 piece albums, I just think it's so unique, unusual, and new sounding.  I can't wait to see how this is handled live. Live is always so much better.

On a side note, it's interesting to me that no one has complained about the length of Freak Puke even though it's a second shorter than Nude With Boots!  I never got that complaint to begin with but it does seem like people who brought that up were just nit picking the Jared and Coady line up.

Freak Puke = Master Puke! (if Puke is substituted by the word 'piece'.

BB should watch their asses, this IS the future of Melvins! Important, timeless, THE BOMB!

yea this is the better way to put it.

Don't get me wrong, the BB stuff is amazing but just not as.....intimate i guess.

That's a good point. I've never had a problem with the length of any of their albums-They're fine the way they are. I think it's silly if people were complaining about the length of Nude With Boots. Bullhead, Lysol, Ozma (without Gluey Porch Treatment tracks) and The Bootlicker are all shorter I think. It's interesting to note that A Senile Animal, Nude With Boots, and Freak Puke are all around 41-42 minutes. Bride is a little bit longer-around 45 minutes, according to my itunes. I don't think any of this really matters though.  :P

The other day I had freak puke in the car and I was pulling out of a parking lot. There were cars parked to my left and right. I turned on the car and the CD resumed where I left it. It was right at the end of Worm Farm Waltz with the cool noice outro. As I was pulling out I imagined that the music was actually the sound of my car scraping against the cars next to me.  :lol:

picked it up over the weekend, listened three times just yesterday.  it's good.  very good.  the choice to use the upright bass was a perfect one, if you ask me-- especially when dunn uses the bow.  and i love love LOVE the fact that they didn't use any bass amps -- it sounds so much more natural when it's just a mic.  i like when you can hear the room..... 

i don't think it's better or worse than any of the BB lineup stuff.  it's just... a little different.  different is good.

a lot of the production of the bass and drums reminds me of primus...  this is not a bad thing at all. 

great album.  can't wait to see it live. 


oh, also-- does anyone know why buzz stopped using les paul guitars?  that's my only complaint: those aluminum guitars make his tone seem kinda thin.  it's not awful, but i much prefer the big heavy melvins guitar sound.
