Monster Magnet - Monolithic Baby - 2004 - SPV Records
While I felt a lot of the record was strong my favorites sit mainly with "Monolithic" (and its chorus that just begs for audience singing along) & "Unbroken" which is perhaps this CD’s version of “Space Lord”. The guys also have included two covers for you to enjoy, one a David Gilmour piece “There’s No Way Out Of Here” which I felt was super impressive. They also cover “The Right Stuff” by Captain Lockheed And The Starfighters which has a great vocal effect and also found me referring to these tracks more on the CD after initial listens. I can’t see too many people disliking the CD as there is nothing overall bad on it, and it certainly moves quickly enough. Diehards might be a little disappointed in some of the psychedelic being lost for their more rock-oriented edge but I would hope they give them a chance with the new material. I want to stress for any new fans that the band is also a great live act and I’ve have seen them a couple of times. Their music and stage performance are both recommendations. Check them out.
