    Following 1995's DOPES TO INFINITY, which contained the successful single "Negasonic Teenage Warhead", Monster Magnet is back with a vengeance. POWERTRIP is a phat, funky, heavy, danceable record that assaults the senses. These guys rock, but with a flair and excitement that incorporates some other musical styles as well. Monster Magnet are a metal band for the 90's--plenty of thunderous riffage, accented by various other elements thrown into the mix.
    While POWERTRIP's first two tracks, "Crop Circle" and the title cut, are straight ahead heavy tunes, "Space Lord" ventures into some funky territory. With an acoustic intro, the track is reminiscent of early Red Hot Chilli Peppers or Mindfunk. "Temple Of Your Dreams" has a great dance groove and "19 Witches" has a Pulp Fictionish surf guitar feel to it. "See You In Hell" is straightforward rock with some keyboards thrown in, while "Tractor" goes the punk route. POWERTRIP, while definitely a heavy album, provides enough different styles to appeal to fans of any of the above mentioned genres. All in all, Monster Magnet goes outside the boundaries of traditional metal to produce a record of groove-laden depth.

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (7/10/98, p.76) - "...Imagine FUN HOUSE-era Stooges on a sci-fi (or psilocybin?) kick. Wyndorf's lyrics may be absurd comic-book claptrap...but POWERTRIP's music is monstrously mind-bending." - Rating: A-

    CMJ (1/11/99, pp.7-8) - "...13 tracks of pounding hard rock glory...sounding a battle cry that's as evil as Black Sabbath, as dirty as the Stooges, and as righteous as the MC5's 'Kick Out the Jams.' A complete juggernaut..."
