5.0 out of 5 stars The heaviest album in the world? Definately
Forget your death metal, your black metal, your desk metal, forget your speed, thrash or nu-metal, forget grunge, sludge or anything else, if you like heavy music, this is it. With enough bone crunching, eye gouging, truly punishing riffs to pound your brain until it dribbles out your ears, this has got to be the heaviest album I've ever heard. Typical to all the Melvins...

2.0 out of 5 stars In Words Of Forrest Gump...
Melvins albums are like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get. As a fan of The Crybaby and Electroretard, I decided to check out their first album (re-released on Mike Patton's Ipecac label). The first three songs sound well, but after that, it starts to get very tedious. The rest of the songs sound very similar...Hell, some of these "songs" only last...

5.0 out of 5 stars The heaviest album in the world? Definately, 4 Oct 2001
This review is from: Gluey Porch Treatments and Unreleased Demos (Audio CD)
Forget your death metal, your black metal, your desk metal, forget your speed, thrash or nu-metal, forget grunge, sludge or anything else, if you like heavy music, this is it. With enough bone crunching, eye gouging, truly punishing riffs to pound your brain until it dribbles out your ears, this has got to be the heaviest album I've ever heard. Typical to all the Melvins albums, this has the lumbering pace of a lead iceberg and slightly more force. Their first full length album, re-released by Ipecac makes their other albums seem light by comparison. They haven't the speed of metal or grunge but an imposing atmosphere is created that is so intense, you can actually feel the pressure in the room building. Amazing. I challenge anyone to sit through this whole album and not feel drained by the end of it. You'll find it hard to listen to if you're not familiar with the Melvins, maybe Houdini would be a better first purchase but, good as Houdini is, this makes it sound like pop.

2.0 out of 5 stars In Words Of Forrest Gump..., 21 Nov 2002
This review is from: Gluey Porch Treatments (Audio CD)
Melvins albums are like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get. As a fan of The Crybaby and Electroretard, I decided to check out their first album (re-released on Mike Patton's Ipecac label). The first three songs sound well, but after that, it starts to get very tedious. The rest of the songs sound very similar...Hell, some of these "songs" only last a couple of seconds! Which means that if I were to add up the total time of the best songs on the album, it would only be around 15-20 minutes. And they even have the demo's of the songs, which makes this album a pretty tedious, repetitive and boring listen.
At least they get better...
