Album Review

During the early '90s, a new crop of Black Sabbath-esque bands was being hailed by the media as the next big thing — perhaps even as a challenge to grunge. At the top of this list were Kyuss, Masters of Reality, and Monster Magnet. While all three did indeed carve niches for themselves and help launch the stoner metal movement of the late '90s, none exactly battled Soundgarden and Nirvana for the top of the charts. Monster Magnet came the closest, however, due to a brief flirtation with the masses with 1998's Powertrip and its rock radio hit, "Space Lord." But there was obviously more to the band led by the man with the nifty facial hair, Dave Wyndorf, as evidenced by the 2003 release Greatest Hits. Imagine the perfect soundtrack for a bunch of stoned/longhaired hippies staring at a projection-screen light show, and you're not far off from such Monster Magnet favorites as "Negasonic Teenage Warhead," "Dopes to Infinity," "Space Lord," and "Powertrip." And following in the footsteps of the aforementioned Soundgarden and Kyuss, Monster Magnet also cover Black Sabbath's "Into the Void," albeit in a completely overhauled way. Since their studio albums were known to be a bit uneven at times, the best way to experience Monster Magnet may be through a compilation, and Greatest Hits covers all the bases.

Customer Reviews

Very nice album

I downloaded this album knowing nothing about this band and never hearing one of their songs but I'm glad I did. I was told this was a great band and now I agree. Standouts for me include Space Lord (and the remix), Heads Explode, Negasonic Teenage Warhead and to be honest pretty much the whole album. Great heavy riffs and catchy vocals.

Into Obscurity.... Almost

Like the previous post... I almost forgot about these dudes... they were huge at one stage and then Nirvana came into the scene... and well, their hits sort of dwindled. A compilation such as this is a brilliant way of bringing together some of the huge hits like Spacelord, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Tractor, Dopes To Infinity, and Powertrip. If you like old-skool, pyschedelic, funky, powerful, riff-packed, hard rock undertones such as that used by bands like White Zombie (later) and Black Sab (earlier) then it would be sacriledge to not buy this album. In your haste gathering recent sounds, don't neglect music such as this... its Gold!!!

Retro-rock visionaries Monster Magnet spent much of the 1990s struggling against the prejudices imposed upon image and sound by alternative rock fashion nazis. In fact, it wasn't until that movement's late-'90s decline that the band's dogged persistence finally paid off and their fourth album, Powertrip, catapulted to gold sales status on the strength of its massive hard rock hit "Space Lord." In the meantime, Monster Magnet had managed to become one of the most successful and influential bands associated...
