Nine Yards is probably the punkiest song on Hold It In, with guitars wailing, bass growling and the kit slamming for the entire track. One of the longer songs on the album, The Bunk Up starts with a bird-like whistling that jumps right into a more metal sound with harsh, thudding vocals. Taking a trip to 1950s Sci-Fi, I Get Along (Hollow Moon) is a fun romp interspersed with laser gun sounds and a rockabilly guitar. The hilariously named Piss Pisstopherson brings the glam rock back to the Melvins with slamming, damning drums and a whammy bar that really gets a workout. The Melvins defy labels and play what they feel from the heart, never letting any musical definition tell them what they can and can’t do. This may sound like a case of spreading oneself too thin, but The Melvins have risen to the occasion once again and given fans an amazing album not seen in quality since 2006’s (A) Senile Animal.

Since then, the group has collaborated with Trevor Dunn, their original drummer Mike Dillard, Jello Biafra, Scott Kelley, and a whole slate of other people. Thatâ€™s why Hold It In, the bandâ€™s umpteenth album, is so surprising. In reality, itâ€™s a Melvins/Butthole Surfers release, featuring classic Melvs Buzz Osborne and Crover alongside B-Surfs Paul Leary and Jeff Pinkus. But, the band congeals here with such charisma that it feels like this release is either the product of a fully charged band that has been working together for decades, or, the first release from a brand new band harnessing their first flash of creative excitement.
In fact, Hold It In recalls the excellent Stag in its effortless eclecticism, and if there’s one criticism of the album, it’s that, even with its variety, its sounds and styles can’t help but echo its sibling from 1996 and also most of the other albums at the more diverse end of the Melvins spectrum (.
