  • Fellow stoner rock gods Queens Of The Stone Age may have disavowed the aforementioned tag, but Monster Magnet continued eagerly embracing this tag right up through 2001's GOD SAYS NO. The band's sixth album was originally conceived by singer-songwriter Dave Wyndorf to be a conceptual, Hawkwind-like space-rock concept album, but the demos and lyrics were swiped during the frontman's cross-country trip to the studio. Forced to change gears mid-stream, Wyndorf whipped up 13 songs that impressively expanded on these long-haired Jersey natives' trademark sludge-rock sound.
  • Among the more adventurous trips these Red Bank rockers take are "Queen Of You" (with its electronica-driven beats and Middle Eastern chords) and "Kiss Of The Scorpion," a Farfisa organ-filled slice of psychedelic garage rock revolving around the ravings of a sexually ravenous incubus. Sex proves to be a popular topic whether it's the mellow, S&M-fueled "Take It" (featuring a whistling Wyndorf, wobbly Mellotron, and samba-spouting drum machine) or the fuzz guitar-saturated dirge "Gravity Well" awash in sexual boasts that sound like John Lee Hooker by way of White Zombie. Elsewhere, the riffs fall down hard and heavy on the chugging, Stooges-influenced riff-generator "My Little Friend," the thumping groove of "Doomsday," and the howling maelstrom "Medicine."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (2/01/01, p.56) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Their most over-the-top album yet....luxuriating in a decadent psych-rock whirlpool....Wyndorf brings the rawk: sexy, dark, melodic, celebratory and, above all, huge."

Entertainment Weekly (4/13/01, p.76) - "...The band's signature brown-acid hysteria shares time with suspensefully muted click tracks, adding an element of noir to a world view that was plenty bleak to begin with..." - Rating: B

Q (1/01, p.92) - Included in Q's "50 Best Albums of 2000" - "...This is sheer heavy glory..."

Uncut (2/01, p.79) - 3 1/2 stars out of 5 - "...Monster Magnet just interlock and rock like Steppenwolf on steroids..."

CMJ (3/26/01, p.4) - "...About the best thing going in hard rock..."

Melody Maker (11/14/00, p.52) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Dave Wyndorf is at his ridiculous, melodramatic and highly enjoyable best....after 13 tracks you emerge tired, wired and f***ed senseless from every direction..."

NME (Magazine) (11/25/00, p.34) - 7 stars out of 10 - "...Their unblinking dedication to the singular superfuzz groove assures them that special place in your blackened heart..."
