Any deets to spill? Does the record sound more like FLD or WWG on CD? Is there a booklet? I could see AmRep doing barely a white backed card stock square for a cover (no offense intended, just seems like sometimes they go less-is-more).

Mine sounds great as well. Black vinyl from roughtrade. Haven't tried the orange splatter factory edition yet. I'm glad this record is on Amrep because they never have Quality Control issues. ipecac seems to have one problem or other with every dang release. which is a
GD shame if ever there was one.
. I wasn't really blaming the physical record. I was just suggesting that maybe the "artistic direction" was intentionally off kilter. (Which is fine).  Have you guys ever bought a Melvins release (paraquat plus perhaps) and legitimately wondered if it was meant to play on 45 or 33 lol. I'm just saying my recording sounds unhinged and I want to know how much of it is just my recording.   It would be fine with me if It was meant to sound this way, As long as I knew for sure.

When i was a teenager i played the solo eps (and butthole surfers first two eps) on 33 for years....

Got mine. 4 page (1 fold) booklet, front and back jewel case art, bar code, and a nice old fashioned crack in the plastic  :lol:
Also melvins is gay cuz some of their songs are just noise, i tell you this so you all don't buy albums and find out only one two songs is good on them.

I love you VF! I'm crying about this download because I'm going for a long drive monday and wanna hear a decent version in the car. I'll order the cd too probably.

I saw that on the back of the record there is a credit for a "Tabla Orchestra". Is that on the loop effects at the beginning and end of 'Receiver...'??

This is the first straight up Melvins release since "Death". I am enjoying it, its going to take a few listens in earnest to decide where it lands. The first half is as grumpy and ugly as anything they have done, but the second half is gorgeously melodic. It Won't or It Might is my favorite track, and it fits into a lineage containing The Bunk Up, Soberdelic, Prenup Butter etc.

Looks like my black version is out for delivery today.  I thought it was a pre-order and not shipping until sometime in October.  Not complaining at all, just hoping I’m not confusing it with a different order I don’t remember making

Petty complaint. I wish there were more variation in the kick and snare sounds. Any of the straight drum parts all sound like Toshi's typical Melvins splat drums.

I was going to wait for the release of Mr. Phylzzz's "Cancel Culture Club" on vinyl but last night I went to SHOXOP and the BMR CD was already in stock so... fuck it, I ordered it anyway.

I don't think its a petty complaint. I love the sound that this team has crafted over the past 20 (!) years, but I do enjoy experiencing different "production timbres" that comes with a variety of producers/engineers and I would like a little shakeup in the production booth. Good album theme: "Sound Booths Loaded"

My dream would be for a Steve Albini recorded Melvins album. It will NEVER happen though. Toshi4Life!

It's funny that you posted this, because when I read blacksanta's post, that was the first thing I thought, and I was trying really hard to imagine what that might sound like.
I happen to really dig Steve's production methods,, and I also think Toshi and Melvins are a perfect fit, but it could be really interesting to hear a bit of a shake-up in terms of production, just to see where it could go.
