- Nude With Boots by Melvins
8/10 Brett Staff review, 02 July 2008I'm the cadet reporting in for Melvins duty while General Ant isn't looking.. I've even broken into his weapons cabinet to wear his tin Buzzo afro helmet while I'm on. As is half-expected with Ipecac, Nude With Boots is only available on CD. The Big Business boys (including Cody Willis from Neighbours) are still on board and initially there's no huge change from (A) Senile Animal, the first few tracks have got a very clean, almost Fucking Champs-y sound to them but as it goes on it starts to veer towards the experimental; probably a natural (re?) progression now the lineup's had time to bed in. The more straightforward stuff is very solid but a few tracks seriously hit the spot once it starts to branch out, 'Dies Iraea' is a cover of some medieval poem thing and swaps the all-out rock sound of the early tracks for Eastern-tinged riffing and distant sounding sludge, it's really quite ace. The last two tracks are well skill, dirgey and demented which is really my Melvins preference, plus the dual-drum setup sounds much better with the extra breathing space (I find it barely noticable on record most of the time). It's as hard to imagine fans being disappointed by this as it is any doubters being converted, it's really just The Melvins doing what they do. Can't say fairer than that!
10/10 Jamie Tilly Customer review,
John Peel once said 'With a new Fall album, you're never sure what you're gonna get. It may not be what you want, but it's the Fall and it's all you need'.The same can be applied to Melvins... This is a real fookin grower ;)
