This album just sucks. It sounds like they’re going through the motions in their later lives. The first thirty seconds of the Smiling Cobra is okay and the Stupid Creep is all right, but that’s about two minutes of this albums music. The rest just drags. You know an album is bad when your favorite song is an odd, ambient outro. This was the album when I finally just gave up on the Melvins. I realized they weren’t going to ever put out music like Lysol or Houdini or the Maggot ever again. And aside from buying some older stuff that I hadn’t bought from the Napster days I haven’t bought anything “new” from them.
