8/10 gbar Customer review, 4th March 2017
This release is packed with what the Melvins are quite adept at: Variety. From the chilled zen of the Fleetwood Mac cover "The Green Manalishi (With the Two-Pronged Crown)" to the scraping bray of "Manky", no two songs are indistinguishable from each other. All the previously mentioned tracks are highlights, and are equally as powerful as less famous tracks like "The Horn Bearer" and "Judy". However, the jewel in "The Maggot's" crown is the ten-minute, grinding sludge-fest "See How Pretty, See How Smart". Containing the Melvins trademark characteristic of taking very few musical ideas and expanding them to cosmic proportions, this epic finale builds its layers thicker and thicker until it explodes into a pulverising climax which should leave any metalhead exhaustingly satisfied.
