Melvins – Basses Loaded

True to its title, Basses Loaded is, well, loaded with bassists — six to be exact: Jeff Pinkus, Trevor Dunn, Jared Warren, Dale Crover, Steve McDonald, and Krist Novoselic. Don’t let your jaw drop to the floor just yet though; the concept isn’t as crazy as it sounds. The first four players have all served as rotating members of The Melvins’ low end, and the last two are longtime associates of the band. Even though all six musicians have their own subtle differences in playing styles, it’s doubtful you’ll pick up on these distinctions during a cursory listen of Basses Loaded.
