At this point in this thread a group hug is urgently needed before we get back to the more serious matter at hand, which is reminding the internet about the shitness of The Melvins.

Anyway, i have attempted to steer us back to Melvins. If Nik wants to evacuate his colon via his mouth any more then i guess we'll have to deal with it as it comes.

Purely on a musical level, I find the heaviness and slowness of their sound to fall flat on its own arse without any sense of dynamics that their playing suggests at first listen. They drag the chords played to such soporific heights of nothingness, they invoke mind-numbness rather than malignant enjoyment. Ok, I run out of gay terminology here.

They were fairly rockin' when I saw them, hence that I can't bring myself to sincerely call them shite. Had they been doing the sludge thing, I could probably have been more damning.

I would say they invite you into a tryst via the depravity of their sound, and that tryst is a safe one due to the non-resolution of the player-listener relationship. But thats just me. I know Melvins are definitively crap, but that doesnt take me past liking them. I mean, you cant listen to Ashtray Navigations all day.

In fact i said neither of those things. I wouldnt mind you if you werent such a pansy about disagreeing with me in front of everyone as others do, but you decided to make your point in the comical world of "negative reputation" so frankly you deserve to be spoken to like "that"

I responded to your points when i pmd you, thankfully you posted said response in the thread concerned so its all there in case anyone thinks im lying. The issue isnt about your opinions vs. mine, its personal, the thing that makes you a pussy is your unwillingness to argue with me in front of others and your wilingness to post a message i sent to you personally to buttress your point. You wanna disagree with me, fine, just stop being such a pointless div about it and just about everything else you post. Put me on ignore if its that hard for you.

Melvins are a pretty dead-end band. I like a bit of their stuff, I must say, but I hit a wall and need to move on to something else.

On the other hand, music judgment is a quixotic adventure. I really don't see the value in it. If the innate quality of shit is so self-evident within the band, why are there people who assert the contrary? They must, also, be shit people? Please, you sound like a goth.

i really don't get what the fuck you are talking about. and would wonder how you could explain the logic that i can be a pussy for being afraid to argue with you in front of others when that is exactly what i did. by your own logic you are the pussy for taking an arguement that was happening on the board and trying to continue it in private. your just bitching that i posted my reply in the thread so you couldn't just tell me to fuck off in a pm reply. what you are saying doesn't make any sense. i mean really, like this makes me a pussy, the only thing annoying is your assumption that it might upset me to be called a pussy. i really doubt anyone cares but as you say they can go have a look at the posts. it's too bad you weren't able to argue your point and had to start this pointless back and forth dick fight by resorting to name calling. i know in real life you can devolve into just calling people pussies when they challenge what you say but thats the key to staying ignorant forever.

but this is so tiresome and i can not be bothered, please, no more.

Whenever I listen to the Melvins I think "but isn't this just Metallica - but shitter?" I can see the appeal. I can see the appeal of Metallica more. Not that I like Metallica. They just don't seem to hide their Metallica-ness behind anything other than a wall of Metallica.
