    Buzzo will be Buzzo, the Melvins will be the Melvins, and we will all have to either love it or stop caring. But with more consistently impressive performances like this, it'll probably be the former.

    For fans of the present day version of the Melvins, this is essential listening. For those who haven't heard the band in a while, you're in for one hell of a surprise.
