8/10 Jack 16th June 2016

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.
