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.

In the meantime, Monster Magnet had managed to become one of the most successful and influential bands associated...
