Eclecticism and irony have always been Melvins' true nature. When Cobain introduced them into major labels world, they traced a personal way at the borders of mainstream music, without no regard for rock conventions. Houdini, as much as Goo and Dirty in Sonic Youth career, is inspired by the same music Melvins have influenced so much, yet it desecrate it. Melvins mock the flaunted differences between classic and alternative rock with a great pomp rock cover (Going Blind by Kiss). They abandon exasperated dilatations and hallucinogenic guitar drones of independent period and demonstrate their originality in pure rock style: composing great riffs (yet never sounding traditional)! Rousing Dale Crover groove and steamroller distortion by King Buzzo will pave the way once again. This time for the rising mix of stoner rock and doom metal.
