hudba na albume "Houdini" je občas schopná, aj keď sa nevyhne totálne slabým výstrelkom (ako napr. "Pearl Bomb", "Sky Pup", "Spread Eagle Beagle" - počúvať desať minút dookola trápne podobné búchanie je oničom), no najväčší problém u mňa je ako vždy strašne slabý kvázy spev Buzz Osbourne -ho. Naozaj je v tom netalentovaný a nedokázal to zlepšiť ani za tak dlhú dobu. Gitary majú dobrý zvuk, no z môjho pohľadu piesne nie sú ničím zaujímavé a vždy mi len pripadajú, akoby ich nedávno zložila začínajúca garážová skupina. No hudobnej stránke kombinujú Stoner//Alternative Rock a občasnými prvkami Punk -u alebo naopak Metal -u. No vôbec ma to neoslovilo, je to nudné, nedotiahnuté a zdĺhavé..

Bullhead is usually considered Melvin’s first truly great album. The Sludge Metal pioneers are relatively peerless in this era, as you could count the number of notable Sludge bands on one hand when this dropped. These circumstances made Melvins kings of the movement by default, and I think that’s why it doesn’t really appeal to me. Bullhead is an album that is special... Read More

A milestone release, as there have been a couple very sludgy albums prior to this one (namely the B side of My War, Black Dust and Gore’s catalogue) but this is probably the first fully formed Sludge Metal album. It’s a disgustingly heavy, ploddingly aggressive mess, the kind that would have easily freaked people out back in the 80’s. Melvins basically take the aggression... Read More
