Some thoughts on [OTHER]:
First of all, I'm a big fan of both Lustmord and Melvins, so I was really looking forward to this. After a few spins, I have to say that I'm not impressed. It reminds me of the track "Hands First Flower" on the Joe Preston CD in the Melvins' "Kiss" series of disks, but without the sense of forboding, chaotic power, or building tension. Sounds like the whole disk is an afterthought to me, like they're on autopilot. It's not a bad listen, and makes a fine background while I'm doing some accounting, but it's definitely not up to the quality I expected. C'mon, guys, you've all produced amazing things in the past; is this truly the best you could get out of a collaboration?
