Why Atlantic would try to cash in on a band they never promoted and dropped seven years earlier I’ll never know. Maybe there was an influx of Melvins popularity in 2003? I was a fan then and I don’t remember it. Whatever. The band had nothing to do with this and I bet they didn’t even get paid. There are some good songs on here but you’re better off buying the full-length albums. And there are some enhanced video clips, but they only included Honey Bucket, Revolve and Bar-X-The Rocking M. I’d never buy this but if you only want to buy one Melvins album to get a sample I can't say this won't do the job. You just have to live in Japan, Australia and some parts of Europe to be able to find it.
Favorite Song: Honey Bucket
