Melvins' love for Kiss goes far beyond most fans, for these set of three EP's each member of the band recorded a record of their own and released it exactly as Kiss did in 1978, right down to the parodies of the artwork. Dale Dale Crover features singing from the quiet Melvin, and his songs examine the world of grunge and power-punk not unlike the efforts of Dinosaur Jr. or Sonic Youth. Out of the bunch, Craver's record is the most accessible. Separately all of them stand out as highly original, but they should be purchased as a set.
