Melvins - The Bride Screamed Murder
the third of their collaborative albums with Big Business, this one is weird even for the Melvins. it's very... stop-start, i guess. they play a riff, then they stop, and play another riff, and then they stop again and the vocals kick in. and that's just the first track.
for the most part it's as heavy as ever (except for the confusing last track), and the influence of BB is clear, two drummers being the highlight of the album. of all the albums where they've worked with Big Business this is probably the second best, beating out Nude With Boots.
