Almost all of the songs are under 3 minutes. This album is the furthest you can get from hardcore. Every song on it is slow, brooding, and full of Melvins magic. None of the songs on it have acoustic or fake intros, it goes straight to the point. This is where it all begun for them. Ozma begins with Vile, the one of the longer songs on the album. Right from the sludgy start, the pace is set for the next 30 minutes.
