Product Description:

One of the reasons the Melvins remain vital and productive as they approach 40 years as a band is they've never been afraid to try new things and give themselves fresh challenges. Their desire to push themselves out of their comfort zone takes them to unfamiliar territory on 2021's Five Legged Dog, which marks the first time the band, known for their crushing volume and downtuned heaviness, has recorded a full-length acoustic album. Perhaps thinking that wasn't novel enough in itself, the they have also made it an epic-scale career overview, featuring new interpretations of tunes from their catalog, as well as a handful of covers, in a marathon production that clocks in at two-and-a-half hours. For a group that's traded so heavily in volume throughout their career, Five Legged Dog finds the Melvins sounding game and committed to this experiment, and guitarist Buzz Osborne, bassist Steven McDonald, and drummer Dale Crover seem happy to try out vocal harmonies that would normally get lost over the sound of the overdriven amps and piledriver percussion. The details of McDonald's basslines and Crover's drumming are naturally a lot clearer in this context, and their playing shows off a welcome nuance, revealing sides of their music that they can't normally use as their focus. It's admirable that the Melvins were willing to take a big risk with an album like Five Legged Dog, and fans will find much to talk about here. ~ Mark Deming
