Default The Melvins Could Have Ruled the World

So we all suspect King Buzzo and Dale would rather live in their apartments collecting royalty checks and smoking dope, than be mega famous rock stars. They could have turned the "commerical" rock world upon its head, but left that to Nirvana, while they strived to remain in obscurity, always subverting their success by submarining their albums with crazing ambient experimental compositions which left fans wondering "what the #$&@*?" Okay, so after 20 years of recording and too many cds to name, we can now pull those awesome tracks the Melvins tantalized us with, but refused to deliver in mass. Example?..."Revolve" for STONER WITCH. It's a crazy album, but this tune rocks harder than anything Metallica or Nirvana ever did. In fact, Hetfield and Cobain could only dream of singing and playing guitar as well as Buzzo could...when he wanted to. It's time for the Melvins to prove they produced the greatest metal, albiet spread throughout many albums, ever recorded in the history of rock. Eventhough they've shunned the spotlight, lets put together a compilation that will get recognition for what they were...the greatest band of the 90's.

^ Neglect your spacebar anymore and I'll kill you.

I agree with the first post, the Melvins rarely put together a complete album, so in saying that it's extremely hard to recommend an album to a first time listener, the first time I heard them I'd downloaded many of their well loved individual tracks.

If I had to, Houdini, (A) Senile Animal and Ozma would be my picks. The latter 2 are better albums but Houdini is whats considered classic Melvins.

I'll up a few tracks of the various sounds they've gone through.

Late 80's
Grinding Process: Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!
Echohead/Don't Piece Me: Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

Early 90's
Zodiac: Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!
Ballad Of Dwight Frye: Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!
Night Goat (probably the most popular Melvins song along with...): Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!
Honey Bucket (...this one): Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

Mid 90's
Berthas: Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!
The Bit: Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!
At The Stake: Send big files the easy way with sendspace. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

Late 90's

2000's

Houdini, (A) Senile Animal and Ozma, all good. I'd also include Bullhead..very solid album, except for the drum solo at the end. Check out track #4 "It Shoved". Classic Buzzo snarling/growling vocal, killer riff and clocking in at a whopping 2:30 minutes.
