EDITORS’ NOTES

Dopes to Infinity is hardly lacking for the sweet-leaf riffs and primal howls that made Monster Magnet stoner-rock demigods, but the narcotic haze clears to reveal an arsenal of chiseled hooks. The dizzying, disorienting swirl of “Negasonic Teenage Warhead” cedes to a righteously fist-pumping chorus, and “All Friends and Kingdom Come” is an apocalyptic anthem propelled by a splendorous ‘60s-psych groove. But the biggest surprise is “Dead Christmas,” which hitches dulcet, Doors-like organ tones to a cool, Santana-esque rhythm.
