The Beginning of All Things to End [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
Alternative metal upstarts Mudvayne re-released their original independent EP, Kill, I Oughtta, along with live tracks and remixes in the winter of 2001 as The Beginning of All Things to End. The EP, which was originally released in 1997, paints a slightly different picture of the band. The songs are reminiscent of '90s alternative metal groups like Mind Funk and Paw, blending stronger melodies and catchier riffs than the material on L.D. 50. Especially good is the growling "Some Assembly Required," which sounds like Jonathan Davis singing for Life of Agony. The only real low point of the songs from the EP is "Poop Loser," a song that so blatantly rips off the chorus ...

Alternative metal upstarts Mudvayne re-released their original independent EP, Kill, I Oughtta, along with live tracks and remixes in the winter of 2001 as The Beginning of All Things to End. The EP, which was originally released in 1997, paints a slightly different picture of the band. The songs are reminiscent of '90s alternative metal groups like Mind Funk and Paw, blending stronger melodies and catchier riffs than the material on L.D. 50. Especially good is the growling "Some Assembly Required," which sounds like Jonathan Davis singing for Life of Agony. The only real low point of the songs from the EP is "Poop Loser," a song that so blatantly rips off the chorus to Korn's "Divine" that it only makes the song sound weak and sad. As far as the other songs, the two live tracks ("Central Disposal" and "Coal") are almost exactly the same as the album versions, albeit murkier and longer. The two remixes of "Dig" are nothing to write home about, with only the "Everything and Nothing Remix" standing out as something significantly different from the original. Finally, the album ends with the 17-minute "L.D. 50," the full-length version of the bizarre sound collage that appears in clips on their major-label debut. The collage might be the best thing on the album, if only because it sounds very different and new compared to the other material. Fans may disagree, but this is essentially just as good as L.D. 50, if not better. The songs are all pretty solid; some of the better songs from that album even appear here anyway. Anyone looking to get into this band might as well start here; it showcases several different aspects of their music and their songwriting may have even been a bit stronger before the major labels came knocking.

    To the top two reviews...

    Maybe you guys should keep in mind that this was a local release originally. Most local bands don't have the kind of dough to make a record "sound" good. Trust me, some better engineering would have made this thing better than anything they've done since.

    Mudlayme

    After listening to it as "The Beginning of All Things to End", I can see why "Kill, I Oughtta" wasn't such a popular CD. This is an example of a good band off to a rocky start. I only liked three of the songs (two of which are one in the same) and the other songs just plain suck. There other two albums are much better than this one.

    Definitely the beginning

    This is not a bad album but it's not great. I love mudvayne and like many bands who have a successful album, a previous album (that you've had no idea existed) seems to pop up. This is one of those. It's not there best work of course, but there's little bit's and pieces in the songs reminiscent of their later work and what makes them great. Cultivate is an excellent song and could easy make it onto any heavy compilation. I don't recommend this CD but I do (if that makes sense!). If you're a huge Mudvayne fan like me you'll probably get it anyway. But you might be disappointed if you think it's an early LD50. Give a listen though. If you've got no idea who Mudvayne are you're missing out. Overall it's a good start from an awesome band.

    The Beginning of how Mudvayne's great music started.

    I have heard the original Kill, I Oughta mp3's and these songs are gonna sound even better on this new remastered cd. Poop Loser is an awsome original intro and each song has good depth musically, considering these are Mudvayne first songs ever written. A few songs are performed live and the quality is still great. The remixes, well...they are remixes and you don't expect anything spectacular from them. The Dig Everything and Nothing remix is the better of the two in my opinion. Well anyway, this is a great raw album and with some cool tunes, it really shows how the band evolved into their L.D. 50 album. Best tracks are: Poop Loser, Cultivate, Seed, I.D.I.O.T and the other ones are still growing on me :)
