EDITORS’ NOTES

Some Melvins records unleash metal, others let out the weird. A Walk with Love and Death—a sprawling, maniacal romp through avant-rock, experimental soundtrack music, and everything in between—definitely does the latter. The first half features serious riffing, as “Sober-Delic (Acid Only)" lays down creepy psychedelia and “Christ Hammer” fuses cosmic rock with Beatles-esque harmonies. In contrast, the second half whips up zany blasts of noise and electronics: “Eat Yourself Out” sounds like garbled radio transmissions from tripped-out aliens.

The Hate album is solid as heck. Great grooves. The Love album reminds me of the 90's noise they put out. The Hate album DEFINITELY make the money well spent. Love will be deleted from my playlist. But I love the Hate. The Hate is what I love.

Incredibly Dull Rip-Off... WHAT HAPPENED??

I'm still a Melvins fan, but come on, what's going on with these guys? Half of the tracks are dumb annoying noise effects, the other half of the tracks are lackluster songs I couldn't care less about.

Best new idea in art in years!

It's the 2nd disc that grabs me and really takes a story. Buzz and Dale should be in the rock and roll hall of fame.
