Monolithic Baby (SPV)
By: Mike SOS
The prolific psychedelic groove that Dave Wyndorf and crew have laid down since the late '80s is back, taking you to places rock music hasn't gone in decades. On Monster Magnet's latest 12-track collection, the pulsating Monolithic Baby, the New Jersey burnouts roll out some of the finest array of tunes the band has ever recorded. Frontman Wyndorf, still wild-eyed and brimming with the passion that has made him the consummate rock 'n' roll spirit, spews forth the twisted tales that the hard rock lifestyle yields, as the expert musicians behind him wail away with the kind of abandon that the greatest rock bands of all-time display. Yes, Monster Magnet is still singing about drug-induced visits to motels across the globe with the kind of questionable company all rock stars should travel with. And, they sound as mighty as ever doing so, as tracks like the earth-shaking rhythms of "Supercruel" and the heavy-handed "Radiation Baby" fit nicely alongside the fist-pumping declarations which comprise "Unbroken (Hotel Baby)" and the seven-minute opus "Ultimate Everything", showcasing the band at the peak of its rock 'n' roll high. Welcome back, boys.
