Editorial Reviews

All hail the return of REAL ROCK ‘N’ ROLL! One of the planet’s most dynamic and enduring bands, the brilliantly bombastic Monster Magnet proudly carry the torch of all that is rock...and they do it louder, meaner, and far better than anyone else has in decades. The praise for Monolithic Baby! has already started to roll in (including a 5K review in Kerrang!) but take it from the mouth of the endlessly enigmatic and charismatic frontman Dave Wyndorf hisself: "This album is a real rock ’n’ roll affair, with big anthems and short, straightforward numbers, performed by two guitars in a driving bombastic sound and Monster Magnet’s unique flair. This is the real deal - accept no substitutes!

Customer Reviews

Almost every song on this album is supergreat.

The best way to go is to not have expectations at all, then you'll be blown away by this CD.
Dean A. Ingram
A much more serious rock album that kicks from start to finish.

In the post-Kyuss world of Stoner Rock, it doesn't seem like any band is capable of the epic songs anymore. Monster Magnet and Fu Manchu, 2 flagbearers of this genre, have tried to sell out(IMHO) with their last albums respectively. Unfortunately both failed to sell as many as they probably hoped for.
Now Dave Wyndorf and the band come back with a true rockin' record. What's most pleasing to see is that this album flows from one song to the next, something God Says No and Powertrip failed to do. They're also bringing back some of the less-produced keyboard loop sounds from the Tab EP of almost a decade ago. There are definitely hints of Superjudge and Dopes To Infinity on this record too.
There are not many bands out there that deserve to truly make some big money.. Monster Magnet is one of them. For more than a decade they've stuck to their own brand of spaced-out, power-riff madness influenced by psychadelia. Dave Wyndorf is one amazing songwriter who also pioneered the CD-ROM/DVD stuff before other bands got onto it. Ed Mundell is one of the juicest guitarists around(just listen to Atomic Bitchwax), and the drumming in Monster Magnet has always been excellent. For 2 albums they lost their way making commercial music while touring with the likes of Marilyn Manson and Slipknot(?).. but this time THEY ARE DEFINITELY BACK!!
4.5 stars from me.. but 5 out of 5 due to the fact that they've gone back to their roots. I hope this is the album that finally gets Monster Magnet to the star status they deserve.. Dave Wyndorf is the world's biggest rockstar who's not a big-time rockstar yet.. maybe this is the time.

As the Monster Magnet website declares: Rock Is Alive! Aside from MM and a few others, I can't think of too many bands who can make that claim these days. With all the sound-alike down-tuned no-solo "rock" out there these days, Monolithic Baby! is a welcome return to old-school hard rock. It is just a great hard-rocking, wacky, fun listen, with all the good stuff you expect from Magnet: pounding rhythm section, overdriven guitars, and some shredding solos, capped off by Dave Wyndorf's wacky view of the world. Definitely not as psychedelic as Spine Of God or even Dopes To Infinity, but overall, I think this is arguably their best work to date.

My song picks: Supercruel, Radiation Day, Monolithic and Master Of Light.

Monolithic Baby, the latest rock effort by southern New Jersey's Monster Magnet, sprung out of a random singularity that unraveled in the wispy fabric of space. It was born of a cyclopian rock-god dog-tired of puerile wailings layered over commerci-pop riffs. Monolithic Baby sprouted out of a meteorite that innocuously planted itself in a tract of Bruce Springsteen's backyard farmland in Colt's Neck. And Dave Wyndorf, the story goes, cloaked in dark garb, gained possession of this alien growth under shady, possibly criminal circumstances. And he heaved the monolithic spacerock into the sky. This tumbling mass bucked gravity and escaped the atmosphere's outer skin and inexplicably, Monolithic Baby reversed course and pierced again the exosphere on May 25th, 2004 and clobbered the North American continent with a Nagasaki-sized wollop. Monolithic Baby is pure metal wrapped inside a white-evil husk, set upon a plinth in Satan's museum of inspired artifacts. And Monolith Baby is more than that. It's the kind of album that you can leave spinning in your CD player at a listening volume at magnet midnight, and you can go to bed to it, and splay out your limbs in an X-marks-this-landing-pad-for-Wyndorf's-mindsplash, and saunter into your dreams drugged on the arresting sound of genuine, legitimate hard rock. So buy this freaking album if you need a transmutation of soul. Or if this age of terror and over-consumption got you down. Or if you just want to dream again.

One thing I always love about Dave Wyndorf is his lyrics. "Your stone monolithic, I smell it on your breath, you gotta 'bout nothin' to say". Rock lyrics are great when they can mean anything or nothing at all.
I love the the cockiness of Unbroken. "You can choke on your own medication, I can watch myself on t.v."
A little politics from Dave in CNN War Theme? "I'll see you all in June." It's about time someone in a rock band stood up and said something about the Iraq mess. All we get is Three Doors Down and their pitiful patriotic garbage. Of course it took an indie label to allow Dave to do such a thing.
Let's face it, many new rock bands come out and have nothing new to say. Monster Magnet have put out consistently good albums for over a decade now. This is one of their best. Like any band each album is good for different reasons. This one brings together the greatest metal/psycedelic/punk/stoner rock that they have done to some varying degree since Spine of God.
If you are looking for something ground-breaking, witty or enlightening this is not for you. If you want some good rock to drive fast with your windows down this summer this is it.
And just a bit clever to boot...

This is definitely Monster Magnet's best effort to date. A much more serious rock album that kicks from start to finish. Dave Wyndorf and Monster Magnet are leading the way to the return of what rock once was. The bonus dvd is also really cool with great live footage, videos, and an interview. You won't be sorry you bought this one!
