Melvins: Ozma (Boner advance tape, import) KKKK

Steffan Chirazi, Kerrang!, 3 March 1990

I WAS recently discussing, with Bill Ward, how sad it is that everything recorded these days is stuffed choc full of gizmotry and is often left without any gut feeling. Then come Melvins. If Melvins recorded on anything over 16 tracks they were ripped off. This is a fuzzy, slow, dark and ponderous album that allows you to sit on every enormous rhythmic wobble and brings a darkish little cloud over your head.
