The Background of a major health scare and some personel changes did not bode well for this release. In addition the last two Monster Magnet albums were in my opinion below par and the band seemed to have run out of things to say. All of which in consideration gives me great pleasure to report that this is their best album in quite some time. Crucially they have dropped the more straight forward hard rock approach and returned closer to their earlier sound which they perfected on Dopes to infinaty which i believe to be their best album. The downside, and its only a minor one, is that its not hard to detect a slightly lower production budget and in places the songs would clearly benefit from a extra layer to give them the full on heavy space rock experience but overall this is still a very enjoyable album and their best since at least Monolithic Baby. If purchasing then make sure you go for the special edition, the two bonus tracks are in good company with the first nine that make up the standard album. In summary Monster Magnet are back, anyone who enjoyed their most succesfull years can buy with confidence as this is definately one of their better albums and also one of the best Heavy rock albums of 2013.
