Stag marks the last major label Melvins release, following their two most accessible albums of the time, Houdini and Stoner Witch. Those two albums offered very sludgy, dirgy post-grunge type outings, all the time incorporating strong melody and solid structures. With Stag the band took a more experimental route, often throwing conventional song structures out of the window, leaving an album that is confusing, yet utterly compelling. Overall if you like grunge/post-grunge/stoner stuff, this album should appeal to you.
