ok, i know i'm beating a (brian the)dead horse(faced goon) with this mister dog commentary but, wait a minute it's a new album. i take it back. I am seriously impressed and impacted by this thing. It's so epic that to me its begging to be called a magnum opus. I know the fallacy in that because melvins will continue and have some more greatness just around the bend quite possibly. With an intro, seems to be 4 parts, and an outro. this thing is just the fucking best. Its the opener of this album but it sets it up for the rest to unfold so well. I also really dig the fact that for me, the double album from 2017 is kinda really death as first LP and Bad MOOD as second LP. I haven't listened to it in this way yet but I will be doing so fairly soon. I can't help but i gotta put this out there for yall. done for now.

Hell yeah. I'm now pretty obsessed with the way Dale plays under the final guitar solo. What a banger. And the first part with lyrics really grew on me. I always kinda liked it but it felt a bit, hm, idunno, clunky? Now really getting the groove of Steven's part I can look past the lyrical phrasing and Buzz's pedal sound a bit.

On that topic, I wonder if this is all Hillbish stuff.

i know tour vs studio, they use different gear a lot of the time, but here's the tour pedal board.

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 agree with you on the studio vs live graveyard. i really like that video of them in chicago or wherever with the ice cream truck. that version is really great.

I think it is still kinda mindboggling to think this is (in a sense) only Steven's second album with the band. Or at least PROPER album with them.

Basses - He's only on 4 songs.
PAT - Although listed as appearing on the record, apparently Steven was absent for most of it.
Five Legged Dog - All old songs.

I thankfully was never “tainted” by the live version - even though I did see them play it live in person. I honestly don’t have any complaints about this album. It’s one of the most straightforward, front to back, satisfying listens in their long list of LPs. It’s got heaviness, some great riffs, some speed, some slow, melody, a pinch of weirdness. My ONLY tiny complaint would be Steven’s tendency to hit those bass notes just an octave above everything else to make it almost too melodic at times. Know what I mean?

Ah, i totally see what you mean. i think Steven is a great (classic) bassist and sometimes tends to do exactly what you expect him to do. i refer to the live context especially

isn't that the difference between Joe Preston and Jared Warren tho? just depends on the execution whether it sits right with your tastes and your preconceived notions of what a bass player should be doing in this particular band.  :D

https://open.spotify.com/album/0gu6pNUImVJghf6S9lUv2V?si=xXvdrGO1TxuEA6wADuNnIQ&nd=1

Out on spotify now!
Mister Dog is now Mr Dog. Damn i hate this sort of thing. I wonder why it says "standard" on Spotify. Is there an expanded one in the works or something?

Somewhat related, i wonder if it will ever get a Bandcamp release, although i suspect not. I dislike it when bands put out records on different labels and all their Bandcamp releases are on different pages.

I see the album is on iTunes and YouTube now too.

Also, i tell you what, i'd love to see Dylan Carlson perform 'Mr Dog...' with the band live. That would be cool.

No mainstream CD release or digital download on Bandcamp means IMO this album doesn't exist.
