UMUR
"10 Songs" is a compilation release by US heavy rock/metal act the Melvins. The compilation was released through C/Z Records in 1991. The release consists of the 6 tracks from the 1986 self-titled EP, and some unreleased bonus tracks. So it is basically a re-release of the 1986 self-titled EP with some additional material.

Stylistically it´s raw, heavy, and feedback laden heavy rock/metal with a raw shouting vocalist in front. King Buzzo sounded a lot more raw and aggressive in those days, than his more odd sounding vocals on later releases. Early Melvins is a pretty savage listening experience with an authentic "garage" sound, and crushingly heavy tracks like "Grinding Process" and "At a Crawl" are sure to please most fans of really heavy music. A bit more sophistication in the songwriting department and a bit more variation between tracks could have made the material on "10 Songs" a little more interesting, but if you like them as raw and hard rocking as they come, it´s a recommeded release.

"10 Songs" features a raw and noisy sound production, which suits the material pretty well, so all in all it´s a decent quality release and a 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is deserved.
