CRITIC REVIEWS

Consequence of Sound

The Melvins’ winning combination of riffs and black humor is in full force on Working with God, making the album recommended listening for longtime fans and newcomers alike.

Paste
With its latest lineup tweak, the indestructible proto-grunge outfit wrings remarkable consistency out of the usual building blocks

Kerrang!

As far as sludgy, frenzied noise rock is concerned, there are few who do it better than Melvins, and Working With God is tangible proof.

Metal Hammer

Surf rock, twisted pop, unhinged doo wop – it’s business as usual in the demented world of Melvins.

Spectrum Culture

Melvins 1983 is increasingly becoming, quite appropriately, a return to roots affair, with the trio flashing its grungy cred and throbbing-ears volume, as well as tackling a weird array of covers, some of them without an instrument in sight. Working with God is another gem in the canon.

AllMusic

With nothing to prove and never having seemed too concerned about impressing anyone, the Melvins continue to take their wild-eyed chaos anywhere they choose -- Working with God goes to some places that are strange and unforeseen even for them.

this feels like it was intentionally designed to be as bad as possible, but it doesn’t even reach the level of being so bad it’s funny. how do you do that. this is just fucking unlistenable. don’t waste your time with this

With brilliant tracks like 'I fuck around', 'fuck you', 1 fuck you', 'Brian, The Horse-Faced Goon' and 'hot fish', what do you expect? they've sucked for years, and it makes me question if they were ever good.
