Monster Magnet

After parting ways with a major label and dealing with the loss of his father, Dave Wyndorf and company have bounced back with a new lineup, label, and record. Monolithic Baby surpasses 2001's God Says No as straight-ahead stoner rock. "The Right Stuff" is the ballsiest Lemmy-era Hawkwind tribute anyone in their right, wrong, or drugged mind could offer. Other standouts include "Slut Machine," "On the Verge," and the instrumental "CNN War Theme." At the end, we get a killer rendition of their own "King of Mars" (from 1995's Dopes to Infinity) and an incredible version of "Venus in Furs," originally by the Velvet Underground. And yes, the original is dwarfed tenfold, as expected. -- Death Metal Douglas
