, the second installment of the Melvins
' 1999 trilogy of albums, displays the lighter, more melodic side of the group's sound. Unlike its predecessor, The Maggot
, there are clean and distorted guitar tones and a relatively laid-back feel, as on the song "Let It All Be." While not quite as eclectic as Stag
reaffirms the sonic twists and turns the Melvins
have at their disposal.
