Dave and company return with another album of originals (+ a Stones cover). After last years near death experience for Wyndorf many thought it was the end but he pulled through and came back.

The dozen originals on this album are psychedelic, blues based heavy rock. Drawing heavily on the 70’s rock influence MM create a totally unoriginal and uninspiring disc. On previous releases there are some real great songs that just stand out but here the best offering is their cover of the Stones’ “2000 Light Years from Home” which works well into the overall vibe of the disc.

A decent disc of ‘Stoner’ style heavy rock. Nothing new here at all.
