I guess Houdini and Stoner Witch are their grungiest releases. I'm not sure what the definition of "grunge" is. Maybe Bullhead and Lysol are closer to "grunge". I don't really know if any of it could be called "grunge". The earlier albums are garage rock with some drone, doom, punk and rock. The Atlantic albums are a more mainstream, better produced variation of that. And their later stuff is more "hard-rock". But they've dabbled in everything. Melvins are a very hard band to classify and they just got lumped in with "grunge" because they were from near Seattle and Kurt Cobain said in multiple interviews that they were one of his favorite bands. And in the 1990's anything he said he liked and anything that came out of the state of Washington was labeled "grunge". They sound nothing like Nirvana, Alice in Chains or Soundgarden. Atlantic found that out pretty quickly when Houdini didn't even go gold.
So I'll give you my default answer: check out Houdini.
