Awesome!!! Glad you got it and it isn't damaged. Can't wait to hear your thoughts.

I would bump up The Receiver and the Empire State to middle of the pack territory. It has the spirit of Magic Pig Detective, a no-nonsense rocker and a satisfying end to the album.
You know, i'm actually coming around to that song quite a bit lately. At first i thought it was a throwaway track. A weird conclusion to the record. But now i'm growing to like it and feel it works where it is placed.

my thought is this song could have been on a Melvins 83 album

With an intro, seems to be 4 parts, and an outro. this thing is just the fucking best.
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!!". It reminds me of when we discovered Graveyard was on PAT. I loved the live version they did and then hearing the studio one was just so disappointing. Slowing it down to a point that just wasn't half as cool. In fact the tempo seems to "break" the song in some ways.

I like the studio version better. I heard the live version first and upon hearing the record wished that they had just opened the show with the slower version of Mister Dog.  But... there's nothing to cry about with Sacrifice as an opener. 🙂

Am I the only one that feels like the rest of this record kind of lives in the shadow of Mister dog?

i agree, that's the highlight of the album. Never Say You're Sorry is another great song. rest of the album sounds ok but didn't impress me honestly

"Mr Dog Is Totally Right" casts a long shadow and side A is for sure the one that defines the record. I was worried that side B might not grow on me as well as it did. Just give it some time, good sunlight and enough water. Aerate the soil every few months. It'll bloom.

Kind of. Although i think 'Never Say...' is the best track. I wish Side B was similar to A. Make the whole thing a sludgy, heavy record. That would have been good.

I disagree. The more i hear side B the less impressive it gets for me. It's just sort of "there" and "meh". Side A is where it is at.

If anyone knows of any store online that sells the CD other than Shoxop, please put up a link here. Would like to have it on CD too, but not for over $20 ppd.

very interesting album: the melvins have settled into enjoying themselves among the modern evil, and have captured the mood

many albums are good but don't capture the elbow of the earth.

i learned what "good albums" are, now. it's not just musicianship, vibe and originality. you also need to tame new regions of the ether and distill a sitcom about life there.

BMR has a deep, mystical blend of advanced musical vibes, some reminiscent of earlier eras of the discography, but repurposed. notes of HAT, ASA, and honky are folded in, honorably

great infusion of classic rock, mixing with the other elements.

nice production. some subtly perfect sounds, in there

Nice take on it, acid. I guess I wasn't the only one who got some ASA feelings. Honky makes sense, too.

BTW is your name a Chocolate Synthesizer reference?

I wish we had some band chat about this album. It seems like ages since the last interviews and it's been surprising that they haven't promoted it a little with a few via video or in text form.

I wonder:

1- If releasing this on Am Rep was a gift/thank you to Haze knowing that financially a new non-limited album is a big deal.

2- Also a good way to audit how many people are guaranteed to seek out a new album.
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.
