5.0 out of 5 stars I've got mushrooms in my head, boy, 28 Dec 2008
This review is from: Dopes to Infinity (Audio CD)
"Dopes to Infinity" is Monster Magnet at their absolute best. Listening to Dave Wyndorf and the gang's recent output it's hard to even compare, such is the fall from grace. Thankfully though, this album and its predecessors are superb. Catchy, melodic, fuzzy and spacey, the sound is irresistible.

In fact, the first six tracks on "Dopes to Infinity" make up some of the very best stoner rock to come out of the 90s. Tracks like "Look to Your Orb For Warning", "Negasonic Teenage Warhead" and the title track perfectly blend grooving, fuzzy riffs with melodic hooks, all encapsulating Wyndorf's raspy and powerful vocals. There's slower, more psychedelic edged tracks, the best of which "All Friends and Kingdom Come" wonderfully forges a kind of melancholy, trippy atmosphere. It's all great and consistent listening. Monster Magnet at their best are superb; it's a real shame it went downhill from here.
