Some reviews about Stoner Witch
a review from half.com:
This disk is a good starting point for anyone interested in the Melvins. With one major-label release already under their belt, this album sounds a little less forced than Houdini and offers several solid tracks with likeable qualities. However, to many of the Melvins purists this one will seem bland, devoid of their unique brand of experimentation and monkeywrench hyjinks. Check out 'At the Stake' and 'Sweet Willy Rollbar' and then check out some of their other stuff.
another from markprindle.com:
One last stab at heaviness, Stoner Witch is kind of like a more strapped down version of Houdini that replaces jokey experimentalism and instantly hooky riffage with an initially unremarkable yet ultimately satisfying enough batch of fairly straight grunge metal songs. Soundgarden with a growler, say, or mid-period Metallica without the speed ("Revolve" in particular sounds almost absurdly Hetfieldian), this album sort of lacks the delightfully sick idiosyncracies that make the other Melv records such a golly, but fans of the heavy will probably find a lot of digginess in the slipstream innyweigh. Plus, the last three songs are mucked up enough to confuse and impress any and all patient enough to bang the box through the first eight. The bass line in "Lividity" makes my entire apartment shake, for ex amp le.
Its 5th floor BOOTY, that is!!!!
I haven't gotten much sleep in the last couple of days.
And now's no time to start!!!! Ha!! Ha he akjakeee. How about that cool whistling bit in "Roadbull"?
I guess they saved "their unique brand of experimentation" and "the delightfully sick idiosyncracies" for the Prick album.
