I haven't compared a lot of filters, so can't really comment there. I had the old Digitech one back in the day which was surprisingly awesome for an old Digitech pedal, and I've used the filters on a number of Boss multi-effectors through the years.
I would describe the MXR as deep and juicy for sure, but maybe a little "slow" as you've said...that might be a good adjective for a feeling that's hard to describe. It's definitely deeper voiced, and quackier than the Boss multi-versions.

I just checked it out again for 5 minutes with guitar & I'll try it some more next week, but I can't seem to be able to dial out the nasally-ness of this pedal with guitar. I love it with bass, but now it almost sounds like it's in High Pass mode with guitar.
I'll have to give it a good listen, haven't used it in a while myself. I think the nasally-ness probably comes from it's deeper voicing, but personally I think it sounds great. I just need funky quack, usually for single low notes, and the MXR surely delivers on that front. I also find it pretty versatile, you can dial in a few different flavors, though I usually find my knobs are set around noon, give or take here and there...
I mainly play a stock 335 through a Blues Jr., and when I'm using the envelope filter I'm pretty heavy-handed with the pick.
