I see this as the last great Melvins release before they started to tumble. There are some really cool covers on here as well as some reworking of some older songs that are really interesting to hear. The unfortunate thing about this album is Man’s Ruin went out of business shortly after it was released and this album is long out of print, and pretty impossible to find. Too bad, Man's Ruin released some really good music around the turn of the century. And if the Melvins had stayed with them rather than going with Ipecac maybe they would've given them a little less freedom and kept some of the shit music that came out later on from seeing the light of day. If you can find it I suggest you buy it, PM me and mail it to me.
Best Song: Tipping the Lion (New & Improved Version)
