Holy mother of the Bull God, never in all possible creations did I think, that on their 10th album, Monster Magnet would produce the meisterwerk of their careers.
High point for me has always been the triumvirate of Dopes to Infinity,Powertrip and God Says No. Dopes had the swirly psychedelic stoner rock coupled to a scything way with a tune, Powertrip was heavy, catchy and polished and God Says No the cohesive distillation of Wydorfs pop-suss song writing.
Since then, despite all too brief highs, it has been a downward spiral to occasionally (and I hate to say this of Monster Magnet) plodding rock and boredom; here Wyndorf has rediscovered the psychedelia, the swirling riffs, the pure stonerism of riff heaven. And it is bliss!
Oh hell is it bliss!!
I won't surmise each track, but suffice to say if anything of the Superjudge,Spine of God, Dopes and Powertrip era ever found your radar, Last Patrol slips right in there with ease and may very well be the best thing Wyndorf ever put the MM name to.
