100% disagree Bigval. Melvins albums don't adhere to rock traditions of drumming. The sound he gets in the beginning my invite of this "Night Goat" already makes the song, before the vocals even come in.

BTW it sounds like these three really have something in these vocal arrangements. "Halo of Flies'" and the live stream "Lysol" are the best harmonies we've had since the BB era.

YES! YES! YES! Im all over this. ALL over it. I've long wanted them to put out an all acoustic record and this will be top tier stuff right here. Cannot wait. Felt a bit down today but this news has me jumping around quite literally!! The 'Night Goat' preview was epic!!! I love the inclusion of 'Sway' and 'Charlie' too. Hearing that Pinkus sings a song on this i wonder who else beyond the core of the band might appear?

Also i gotta say that new promotional photo of the band there is fantastic. Quite possibly my favourite promo shot they have ever done.

In the Rolling Stone interview Buzz said it was done during the pandemic.

Just thinking about the Melvins albums that are not represented with acoustic versions here - i would have liked to have had a couple of HAT tracks included. Something from The Maggot also. Im slightly surprised there are so many of the "famous" tracks from the Atlantic era. It almost makes this release feel like a bit of a "best of" or career highlights compilation. Something for a new fan to investigate.

let me be the first to say that I have been somewhat judgmental of the Steven era of MELVINS.  it hasn't been my favorite.   

but that bass sound on that version of Night Goat... whoa momma.

I would've preferred this done solo by Buzz like his first solo album which was great, I didn't like his second solo album with all the added stuff.
I thought it seemed a little odd at first but personally, now i love it. I think both Buzzo's solo records are some of the strongest material he has put out in years. Im looking forward to more from him whatever form it arrives in.

Yep. I really loved the version of Dark Brown Teeth they put out a few years ago with Dale on drums too. That was great i thought and im slightly sad it's not on this new record.

Same here. But on old Melvins songs i think he will be absolutely fine. I don't mind Steve im just not much for his more upbeat, poppy song writing and singing voice.

Night Goat sounds pretty good. is Dale playing the cocktail kit?

No sounds like a full drum kit to my ears, oddly enough.

To me acoustic guitar & bass doesn't sit well with drums I would've preferred this done solo by Buzz like his first solo album which was great, I didn't like his second solo album with all the added stuff.

Sounds like the same drum sounds from a walk with love and death.  At the very least the same snare.

Hope Ipecac have done their homework on this. That's a lot of tracks to get in the right order.

Bandcamp shipping $7
Blixt shipping $18 😐

Yeah, plus with the Bandcamp purchase you'll get the album in FLAC & other lossless formats.  Love me some Melvins on Bandcamp!
