The Melvins - (A) Senile Animal (CD)

This album heaped a lot of praise for the returning Melvins, and even made it into a few best of 2006 top ten lists, but after listening through it I found it to be really boring a big dissapointment. The slow sludgy style just didn't do it for me.
CD Rating: *

MachineHead - The Blackening

Except for "Imperium", I really didn't like MachineHead's previous album, "From the Ashes of Empires", but The Blackening definitely sees the foursome back in form delivering eight brutal tracks, including 2 that go about 10 minutes each! More of the old signature MachineHead guitar sounds are used as well, and this is their best overall work in some time.
CD Rating: ****
