The one everyone forgets,
This review is from: Superjudge (Audio CD)
When you talk to a Monster Magnet fan, they usually tell you that their favourite album is Powertrip, Dopes To Infinity, or Spine Of God. It's like Superjudge didn't even exist. Even Dave Wyndorf has been known to shun it on occasion. What you need to know though, is that this record is the best thing they've ever done. Fuzzy guitars, with hints of Sabbath and Hawkwind (there's a cover of Brainstorm, but they way it's done makes it sound like Magnet and fits into the album well) was the way it went on here. The drums and bass are a bit low down in the production, which in itself is a bit fuzzy too, but that's also what gives this album it's atmosphere. Every song on the album is fine tuned to absorb the listener. You can lie down, close your eyes, and you don't even need narcotics to help conjur up weird images in your head. Or maybe that's just me?
For fans of fuzz/stoner/psychedelic/garage/acid rock.
