This thread has had a lot of negative reviews and 1.5 and 2 out of 5's. So you’re probably wondering why I’m doing this thread. This is why. This is where shit gets REAL mutherfuckers. The Melvins started out a little slow but on this album they hit their stride. It starts out with the sludgiest dirge they may have ever recorded. Boris is just a fucking awesome song. So awesome that if you click on the link above you’ll see a live version from 1991 that just destroys everything. If I had a time machine I'd be in that club. Things speed up quite a bit after Boris after that but it’s just great song after great song. I have nothing bad to say about this album. Essential.
Best Song: If I Had An Exorcism
