This is a really fantastic merging of two completely different styles, the sinister dark ambient of Lustmord and the swampy sludge metal of the Melvins. I am a fan of both bands and I think the collaboration showcases the best facets of each. The problem with both solo Melvins and solo Lustmord records is that they get a bit monotonous after a while, rarely varying from a single style. That is not a problem here, because as soon as you get tired of one, you are treated to the other. I don't think I'll go into individual tracks, but needless to say, the sprawling title track is the highlight, and fans of either band should definitely pick this one up. 4.5 stars, really.
