Hideous Woman is the one track on this album i just cant get a handle on. not sure if i like it or dislike it. there's a few parts that i think are cool (the bass line in the middle section for instance), but it mostly just confuses me as a track.

lot's of great songs on this album though. and a then there's ball game, which is where i turn the album off.

I had to laugh a bit of this:

"Seems like just a bunch of studio shit they've done over the years with different bassists. Not like it's some kind of bass driven concept album. Also, when I heard Krist Novesselic played accordion on it I threw up in my mouth a little bit."

Utterly shameless plug here but I tackled my own review of it, mainly isolating what I feel were the stand-outs. It's definitely an unorthodox album to tackle in that mindset. I don't think I said it here but I did think Mike & The Melvins was the better Melvins release of 2016 so far...

Mike and the Melvins is one of their best records ever, in my book.

The Japanese CD comes with a Basses Loaded sticker, extra artwork including that of hand-written notes from Buzz, Dale and Pinkus to their Japanese fans and early 'pressings' had a download code for two extra tracks. I'll post photos next week when I'm home.

I'm home.











The 'two extra tracks' thing is a mystery. Either I didn't get an early enough copy, or it's an untruth.

Ahhh! The Japanese Bulls & Bees credited the dotnet as well. I think I'll need to track this one down...
How exciting


I think we should put it in a jar labeled 'melvins'

Buzz have almost as bad handwriting as me, Dale is worse, much worse!  :lol:

Mints

You've both seen Dale's signature. It's nothing like that.

.....figured it out yet?
