the main problem I have with with the bb melvins is the production of the last two albums.
The guitars sound awful and the drums have no guts!
I made an alternative equalizer uhh..setting for ASA just now. If you use winamp or have a graphic eq on your stereo try this:
Pull the fader halfway down at 3K and a little bit more down at 170 . Pull it halfway up at 310 and maybe add something above 12k.
It's a totally different listening, much more pleasant to my ears at least.

I agree, the guitar tone on ASA is dreadful.  It fits a couple of songs, but for the rest of the album it is terrible.


When I got my first "real job", back in 1994, I had to fill out a goal sheet.  My 25 year goal was this exactly: "Hopefully I'll still be listening to the Melvins."  It hasn't quite been 25 years since that time, but so far I'm on target.  I have enjoyed the adventure and changes up to the most recent.  The drums, the vocals . . . I'm speechless, to me they sound for themselves.  I never got any feedback from my manager, but got plenty from the band!
