I loved the Brown EP and despite the delay in the pre-order of this, Monster Truck's first album, I am absolutely loving Furiosity. What's not to like? The same hard rocking, beer swilling licks and lyrics but in a longer album format for still greater enjoyment. There's even time for a couple of bluesyer slow numbers that certainly do not detract from these guys obvious talent and enthusiasm for rock.
Not a bad song on this album but so far, six listens in I'd say Psychics and the ZZ Top-esque Call It A Spade are the stand-out tracks of this very good debut. One week old and I already want more, please! I really cannot wait until they make the trip across the Atlantic to grace our ears with Monster Truck live. Please make it soon, and please come North of the Border.

This cd came out of the blue. Clicked on a link to watch the video, and ordered the cd straight after. A voice sent from heaven, guitars from hell. Heavy but loads of melody. If you like heavy rock with quality tunes, his is a must.

Being as I'd bought a ticket to see these guys live, I thought I'd better check 'em out Dale.
So using the fine capitalist system I ordered this slab of vinyl.
What did I get? Well, I got three sides of DYNAMITE MONSTER BOOGIE!!!!!! or something rather similar. Best thing to come out of Canada since, well, what of any great import has come out of Canada?
Can't say there's any particular standout track as it's all so consistently good, Old Train is a mighty fine way to start and Win/Lose is a mighty fine way to finish and we get lots of other mighty fineness in between.
Having now seen them live the songs are even better in a live situation, full on mindless - in a good way - Rock'n'Roll fun.
DON'T FECK WITH THE TRECK! BUY OR GET RUN OVER BY A SET OF GIGANTIC WHEELS!!!!!
