It's on youtube.
It's up on their Bandcamp page now too.


Graveyard - Good
Don't Forget to Breathe - Good
Break Bread - Good
And the rest?? Ha.

Best Melvins album of the decade.

FIGHT ME.
you putting it over Freak Puke and The Bride?
It POONS those ones BIG TIME.
Absolutely no way does it! Not a chance. Freak Puke is easily the best modern Melvins release. Although i have admittedly been pleasantly surprised by this record. With what Dale said about this album being "weird" and the rubbish 'Embrace The Rub' i totally feared the worst. Thankfully it's just a good Melvins record. As a whole, not amazing but good. As a collection it's better than '...Love & Death' and i'll take that. I'd give it a reasonably healthy 7.5/10. I just wish 'Graveyard' was a bit faster like that AV Club video and Embrace The Rub had been replaced with something else.

Haha that's cool you have an affinity with Freak Puke but this new one pile drives it from the top rope.

The new one poons HAT too.......BUT.....if we were to consider the real HAT album as being the 7" set with the B-Sides then it'd be touch & go.

But for me....easily the best since Bootlicker. From now on only 8-9 tracks.

I love this new album.

Couldn't care for some of the classic rock stuff (the two "singles") but the other songs are up there. Vocals are on point which is something that has brought down recent albums.
The banjo, Dale sounds like Dale, the experimentation, the bass. Top notch album  :love:

Have to say one of the absolute best moments on this record - possibly the best! - is when the guitar chugging riff kicks in on 'Flamboyant Duck'. That is awesome.


Best songs on the album...

Don't Forget To Breathe
Flamboyant Duck
Prenup Butter
Graveyard

Yep all killer tracks. Get rid of Break Bread and Embrace The Rub and extend the rest.

I had been waiting to post this, but if you skip to 29:00 you get the banjo version of Don't Forget to Breath.  And his ayahuasca story when he wrote it.  Good version of 20lb jockey too.

100% agree.
But this album is pretty fierce. Just not that fierce.

Since they got two whole bassists on this tour...

Golden opportunity to do some of those Mike and The Melvins tunes live.
(Chicken n' Dump and Limited Teeth, especially)

Good idea! I highly doubt it will happen though. They should do something a bit more special and unique rather than just roll out the old standards yet again.

Been spinning this one since I got home from work yesterday. I think that this one, for me, will go down as their version of Diver Down.
Bunch of covers and some other cool originals to pad out the time. I know that Diver Down is not nearly as good as all the albums that came before it,
but I love that album regardless.

One of my favorites as well.
