Perhaps because i heard it first, i still MUCH prefer the live version myself. The album one seems so slow by comparison. On my first listen to the album when the song kicked in after the drum intro i thought "oh God!!! Why are they doing it this slow!!! Noooo!!".

I thankfully was never “tainted” by the live version - even though I did see them play it live in person. I honestly don’t have any complaints about this album. It’s one of the most straightforward, front to back, satisfying listens in their long list of LPs. It’s got heaviness, some great riffs, some speed, some slow, melody, a pinch of weirdness. My ONLY tiny complaint would be Steven’s tendency to hit those bass notes just an octave above everything else to make it almost too melodic at times. Know what I mean?
isn't that the difference between Joe Preston and Jared Warren tho? just depends on the execution whether it sits right with your tastes and your preconceived notions of what a bass player should be doing in this particular band.  :D

sure

Ah, i totally see what you mean. i think Steven is a great (classic) bassist and sometimes tends to do exactly what you expect him to do. i refer to the live context especially

they should cover Cramps
hard agree


also i was listening to black rose and it struck me as kinda odd that the melvins have never covered thin lizzy

ah, good call!

also covering TRex with Steven would be perfect!
