Guest review by

Monster Magnet's Spine of God is a landmark album. In a time when Hair Metal was on the wane, Thrash was making inroads toward the masses, Death Metal was growing legs, Alternative Metal was in it's infancy, and Grunge was just beginning to get some exposure, this was a release completely out of step with the times. Signed to the German Glitterhouse label and distributed by Caroline in the States, they were one of the originators of what would come to be called Stoner Rock/Metal. Now that the historical significance has been addressed, we can talk about the actual album, since being early doesn't mean it's good, even though it is.
