Corrosion Of ConformityIX

★★☆☆ The great news about the latest COC album is that their ever-sludge-as-fuck ethic is finally current, thanks almost entirely to the evolving scene around them (and not through any real diligence of their own). As a result, COC sounds more relevant than ever. Alas, there’s a whole lot of familiar self-indulgence on this album as well, not all of it successful or effective.
