In 1998, if you weren't into extreme metal yet, and didn't get alll your music as pricey European imports, Powertrip was IT, man. This was where it was at, for mainstream, heavy rock 'n' roll. It's what you'd get if the bastard child of Kiss and Sabbath grew up raised on sci-fi comics and magic mushrooms. Lots of hardcore Monster Magnet fans prefer Dopes To Infinity, but to me, Powertrip is catchier annd more song-oriented, dialing back the spacey weirdness a bit to let the hooks stand out. There's really not a song I don't like, from the huge, fist-pumping opener of "Crop Circle" to the quiet, almost whispered closer "Your Lies Become You." But the big single "Space Lord" willl always have a special place in my heart: it was THE song the summer between high school and college. (Trivia: it was also the first video aired on MTV's TRL--remember that?)

Cool album of a man who got wasted because of the drug addiction but thanks God he's recovered himself right now and is kicking a** once again,i'm talking about the former "sex symbol" Dave Wyndorf...this release has some nice moments in the shape of "Powertrip"(the best cut in here IMO),"Crop Circle","Space Lord","Bummer" & "19 Witches"...i own a special edition that brings a 5 track live set additional CD which is cool also...83/100

Lemme tell you one more time just how much I love this disc. Sure, there were albums I enjoyed through the mid-'90's, but I don't think I'm rewriting my own personal history when I say that when Powertrip came out in '98, it was the first album that truly sounded like purely fun, larger-than-life, (sex, drugs and) rock 'n' roll in at least five years. "Space Lord" was such a big hit, coming out in mid-May, really taking off in June, and by July, it was welll-entrenched on the radio, and got heavy airplay even into the fall months. I remember them performing live on Rockline, and Bob Coburn, the host, commenting on how he was watching the water in the bottle on his desk jumping up and down, the band was so loud--something he never said about any of the mild, muted alt-rock bands that had (dis)graced the show for the past half-decade.

Buckcherry got the credit a year later for bringing back the good times, but really, they just brought back a certain style of trashy, L.A.-bred sleaze-rock. Monster Magnet don't sound a thing like GnR or Motley Crue or any of the other '80's bands whose return we were pining for in '98, but to me, they brought that first, oh-so-refreshing blast of grease and gasoline. Definitely on my short list of favorite albums of the '90's.

The live bonus disc Rick mentions is called Viva Las Vegas, and was only part of the show. The whole thing was actually recorded for a national radio broadcast. I found some of it on an old cassette I'd recorded in early '99, and it has songs like "Powertrip," "Atomic Clock" and "Tractor" that aren't on the CD. Have to say though, much as I love the Powertrip album, the live stuff isn't that good, and Wyndorf was extremely obnoxious onstage.
