Senile Animal is a fantastic album but I’ve enjoyed a lot of music they released since then. My favorite album post Senile Animal is probably Tres Cabrones. Love Dogs and Cattle Prods and Walters Lips

i've never thought to use "vaudeville" as a way to describe the modern, corny melvins, i'm gonna have to remember that

Unless it's The Bootlicker and then that's still okay.

I do think a lot of new Melvins sounds more like 70s hard rock than fans or the band are willing to realize. I still go to the shows and listen to every new release though

sadly you are correct.
Listened to Honky today real loud.  Brilliant.
Does not even sound like the same band who put out the Pinky thing or death. :lol:

My advice to you is to create.  Satisfy yourself with all the unbelievably heavy music that’s in your head and you may learn to roll with other artists a bit easier and avoid laying your expectations on them lack a chain of tiresome personal desire.  Enjoy the trip, and feel free to jump off for a second and scribble your own picture in the dirt.  You may find yourself feeling better about another person’s output.  Or just keep bitching about how things aren’t how you want them to be, and that this artist didn’t write the song that you wanted him to...

Btw, this act can still mow down bands half their age without breaking a sweat.

there are other bands out there who satisfy me w/out having to "create" music.  Lame advice Shackelford.
This aint no bitching or complaining, just my observation.  Been a melvins army  cadet #28 since 1990.  Proud of it.  When it comes to playing melvins music, I rarely grab anything past A Senile or maybe Bulls & Bees.  My ears dig the old stuff.  More challenging.  More like a seance instead of 70's polished hard rock.  Gimme STAG. HAT, Honky, OZMA, BOOTLICKER, maggot etc.. all day long....Seems melvins were more arty and now they are more vaudeville rock.
Just sayin. 8)

Gotcha.  Usually those kind of observations come from twenty somethings who care about being the heaviest thing around, so that’s why I thought you were younger.  All that matters is that they have fun and keep going, for themselves, not because Melvin’s army member #28 wishes they’d make one of their old albums over.  I prefer those albums to some new stuff too at times, but that doesn’t mean I feel the need to crack on these guys for not doing something they’ve already done and how I think they should do it.
