The Wire magazine reviewed the album and I am going to type it out for you here goes:

"A Melvins remix album? Their own occasional flirtations with electronic noise aside, Melvins are fundamentally a heavy rock band, albeit a highly individualistic one, and should probably be left to exist as such. But clearly they believe otherwise.

If nothing else, the methodology is interesting: the post-Metal pranksters have recruited an impressive cast of guests, including Yamatsuka Eye, Merzbow, Christoph Heeman, Lee Ranaldo, Makoto Kawabata, Farmer's Manual and Matmos, among others, and given each an entire album, not just the usual single track, to work with. Some hew closer to the source material than others: Ranaldo's track splices three throbbing, hyper-aggressive songs together with only minimal tweaking, while Matmos grabs a snippet of bass and some distorted guitar and builds a glitchy techno track around them, winding up with something closer to David Bowie's "V-2 Schneider" than anything in the Melvins catalogue.

Surprisingly, Acid Mothers Temple guitarist Kawabata's contribution doesn't seem to have any guitars in it at all, and doesn't sound all that different from Merzbow's mix. Panacea's "Queen (electroclash remix)" does more or less what the title implies; he preserves Buzz Osborne's vocal and throws a big dance beat underneath. In so doing, it's one of the few tracks, along with Lee Ranaldo's and John Duncan's offerings - the latter of which basically loops a guitar riff and a thunderous Dale Crover drum pattern for five minutes - that retains much essential Melvins-ness. Ultimately this is an unnecessary album with a few interesting moments. The Melvins have released a bunch of those over the years, but this time, they've brought in outside help."


Sounds like one for the big fans to me. So...I cannot wait :D

Thanks for typing all that up!

I can't fucking wait.

Unnecessary? WTF! If the Melvins are releasing it, it's because it is in fact NECESSARY.

Prick, Honky, Electroretard, COD? Are those unnecessary! BAH!

Exactly, it's going to be great!

Also they reviewed the new Om album and it has unnecessary sitars and bongos :(

where did this Wire review come from (which issue)?

That's a big fucking laugh that they call it unnecessary, given the slobbering they resort to over just about anything else atonal. Don't get me wrong -- I have a massive collection of "noise" music.

The magazine that purports to expand and eliminate critical boundaries when it comes to music and art, and they want to put the Melvins in the same fucking heavy metal box that other critics do. Guess they missed the whole point that the Melvs went out of their way to smash expectations about remix records. Should they have teamed up with Moby and Black Eyed Peas and delivered a real "chugging" dance jam compendium? Dumbasses.....

Oh well, at least you can count on Aquarius records to cum all over this CD. hahahahhah...

Looking forward to getting this on Sept. 29th. I love the idea of them giving each remixer and entire album worth of songs to remix rather than just one. It should be really awesome to hear everyone's interpretation of Melvins tunes.
What would a woman that fine want in a big, fat, nasty, greasy, fat, stank, bloated, cheesy-backed, 12-sandwich-eatin' bastard?

Turn around mister, and never trust a girl giving her donuts away for free.
