How could this slightly contentious one not have been done?

Have at it.

It’s like making me choose a favorite child.

Fortunately, I have no children of my own that I am aware of.

Sorry, Dad, but your son was smarter and better looking than you. He once thought you were the coolest guy in the world, though.

Karp’s Self Titled LP is fun and super energetic - but it's got a zany aftertaste.

It pales in comparison to the more rabid rockin’ records like The Maggot. The Maggot eats S/T as a bedtime snack.

All the early Karp stuff is not great – certainly not better than Bullhead – hell, let alone ‘Boris’.

Zero contest here.

I like Karp more, but the Melvins win this fight...does that make any sense?

I would like to make a poll on your favourite Melvins record(s) , and THAT would be an interesting poll, because their discography is so variegated.

I can totally see argument for Melvins being more interesting, better yadda yadda, but their stuff never really clicked with me unlike Karp's "S/T" which is one of my favorite records. So KARP it is, objectivity be damned.

The Melvins get points for their influence on rock music in the 90s.

Melvins music suffers from a little bit of Ulrich-ness to my ears, whereas Karps S/T is perfect in every way. I have never achieved an appropriate volume for the playback of 'Bacon Industry'.

Karp. :WF: zero.
