Split Open and Melt

, comment by hughie46
hughie46 almost like a maximalist groove here^ , this jam is shows an absolute mastery of groove style jamming where every member of the band is speaking out, almost like soloing, at once. there is a SICK video of it on youtube, check it out for a full experience. also the second set is incredible, has a cool loop jam in makisupa and a RAGING funky bitch and a unbelievably gorgeous simple. trey is on fire in this show too.

n00b100 There's no shortage of Type II monster Melts out there from every incarnation of the band, so I think you can make room in your heart for one that just leaps into punchy funk right out of the song proper and stays there for its entire duration. Mike and Page, in particular, really contribute to how exceptionally catchy this jam is. I think of this one like I think of 12/7/95 - a prototypical Melt for its era, with the nasty piledriver rock of the mid-90s replaced with the smooth minimalist grooves of the late-90s.
