There are definitely some really entertaining songs on this album, but almost half of the tracks seem unnecessary. Three of the tracks can't really even be considered songs. One such track would have been fine, but three is excessive. A few of the songs weren't the greatest either. I feel like this would be a better overall album if some of the lesser tracks were thrown out, leading to a shorter, 8 or 9 song, album.
Inconsistency and immaturity are the main issues with Ultramega OK, the legendary debut from grunge pioneer Soundgarden. The band here shows itself as an odd hybrid of punk and 70's hard rock. And while songs like "All Your Lies", "Head Injury" and "Incessant Mace" are executed to perfection, that doesn't justify the filler tracks "665", "667" and "One Minute of Silence". The presence of two weak songs as well ("Circle of Power" and "He Didn't") make for a slightly disappointing affair. Nevertheless, Ultramega OK is still an interesting debut from a band which would improve with time and effort.
