Album Review

Strategem was an unexpected failure, delivered exactly at the moment when Big Head Todd & the Monsters could have broken into the mainstream. With its follow-up, Beautiful World, the group regained its musical strengths. The Monsters jam with an expert grace throughout the record, particularly with guests John Lee Hooker and Bernie Worrell, and producer Jerry Harrison helps keep things focused.

Good Album, with a few standout songs and a few less than excellent songs

During the late '80s and early '90s, Big Head Todd & the Monsters (the Colorado-based trio of guitarist/keyboard player Todd Park Mohr, bassist Rob Squires, and drummer Brian Nevin) built their audience through constant touring, playing college towns across the country. With these tours, they built a solid fan base before they had even signed to a major label. Although they released a number of records, they weren't quite able to transfer the live appeal of their laid-back, slightly jazzy blues-based...
