This review is from: Never Breathe What You Can't See (Audio CD)
Alright, so he's never really been away, having become a sort of heir to Noam Chomsky with endless spoken word albums, lectures and random harangues. But this is his first musical thang for some time, and I'm pleased to say it continues along the path set by Lard, Tumor Circus and his Nomeansno collabaration - earthshaking psycho grunge and hysterical paranoid ranting that occasionally sails closer to David Icke than Chomsky, but hell, that's all part of the enjoyment.
There's not much to say on the whole - he's as consistent/inimitable as the Fall - but special mention must be made of the steamhammer 'Plethysmograph' and the way-disturbed 'Dawn Of The Locusts'. The Melvins sound like the last goddamn band on earth, with riffs that'd (hopefully) make old farts like James Hetfield and Tony Iommi retire right now. Buzz Osbourne's wife, Mackie, contributes fascinatingly weird artwork, as always.
Rocks like a sackful of mad bandits.
