Pretty good, influential debut album from the Melvins. This is one of those records where you have to be open to the style to enjoy, as they do not deviate from their main sound. I myself, enjoy heavy music, so the album is at least listenable. And this is an incredibly heavy record, one of the first to sound like this I think. Dale Crover is the true star of this band to me, and he shows incredible restraint with his style, along with creative use of the double-bass pedals to help the band stand out. I like the sound of the guitars and bass, but they basically play the same riffs on all 17 songs. The vocals are rough, and mostly unintelligible, but Buzz would develop more of a personality as their career went on. The stand out songs are the longer one where the band is able to stretch their sound out a bit. Eye Flys has a really cool extended opening bass and drum part, as the guitars slowly begin to creep in. Leech slows to a crawl after an energetic start, and that track has more direct vocals, along with a nice drum coda. As it Was has dope double bass work, and is the closet to having any type of melody. The album is more important for who it wound up inspiring.
