God Says No [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Three years after not only reaching the top but going far, far over the top of Mt. Rock Excess, this monomaniacal riff machine is revving up again -- and ready to show off a few new gears. Oh, don't worry, there's still plenty of pedal-to-the-metal bulldozing -- like the one-two punch of "Melt" and the appropriately titled "Heads Explode" -- but God Says No, the band's seventh full-length album, shows a more fully developed sense of texture and mood. That's most clearly evidenced in songs like the skittering neo-electronic "Take It," which leavens the monolithic guitar assault with a rhythm that's more hip-swivel than outright chest-thump. Likewise, "Gravity Well" ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Three years after not only reaching the top but going far, far over the top of Mt. Rock Excess, this monomaniacal riff machine is revving up again -- and ready to show off a few new gears. Oh, don't worry, there's still plenty of pedal-to-the-metal bulldozing -- like the one-two punch of "Melt" and the appropriately titled "Heads Explode" -- but God Says No, the band's seventh full-length album, shows a more fully developed sense of texture and mood. That's most clearly evidenced in songs like the skittering neo-electronic "Take It," which leavens the monolithic guitar assault with a rhythm that's more hip-swivel than outright chest-thump. Likewise, "Gravity Well" finds guitarist Ed Mundell exploring some gritty blues progressions that recall the more turbulent playing of Robbie Krieger. Still, the band's calling card remains Dave Wyndorf's phantasmagoric vision, a sometimes chilling, sometimes chuckle-inducing set of keys to the doors of perception. He's at his most head-spinning on "Silver Future" and "Doomsday," the latter of which also tosses some unusually personal revelations into the mix. God Says No is certainly a "progression" from Monster Magnet's more fearsome earlier days, but not one that's weakened them: To couch it in the trash-culture terms so beloved by the band, think of it as a 3-D horror flick instead of a regular old gorefest.
All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
Like other bands credited with pioneering the stoner metal scene in the early '90s, Monster Magnet continue to drift further and further from the trademark sonic characteristics distortion, psychedelics, space rock of the genre they helped create. And after stripping down their sound to a no-frills, streamlined attack on 1998's breakthrough album Powertrip, band leader Dave Wyndorf refused to sit on his laurels when it came time to devise Magnet's fifth album, God Says No. Instead, in a display of massive creative "cojones" and/or utter commercial suicide, Wyndorf leads the group into unexplored territory, and even seems to be having a little fun with it along the way his sex-drenched lyrical acid-trip fantasies remain as entertaining as ever. The result being that while Powertrip's single-minded urgency and unbridled power seemed to trap the listener behind the wheel of a drag racer on the verge of flaming out, God Says No is arguably the band's mellowest set yet, and certainly their most diverse. With their laid-back grooves and unexpected use of triggered electronic drumbeats, the title track and "Queen of You" are the best examples of this turn of events. And even when they do pick up the pace a bit, tracks like "Silver Future" also featured on the previous year's Heavy Metal 2000 soundtrack and the amphetamine surf rock of "Kiss of the Scorpion" never quite lose control on the scale of Powertrip's Stooges-fueled recklessness. Elsewhere, bizarre experiments like "Take It" featuring synthetic melodies set to karaoke-like drum machine rhythms and "Gravity Well" a distorted piece of Delta blues slide guitar topped with Wyndorf's lascivious innuendoes push the band's creative envelope to the bursting point. Older fans and recent converts alike may prefer the album's second half, where at least some of Magnet's lo-fi, fuzzed-out past and Powertrip's raw, unyielding sonic attack finally surface on tracks like "My Little Friend" and "Medicine" originally featured on the band's Spine of God album, re-recorded here. But new converts will get to savor all the band's flavors, including space rock anthems like "Melt" and "Cry," which hearken back to 1995's Dopes to Infinity with their familiar-sounding hypnotic riffs. In the end, some may be disappointed by God Says No's all-around sense of restraint, but open-minded fans will have to acknowledge Wyndorf's courageous insistence on breaking new ground with his continually inspired songwriting.

    God Says No, I say Yes!

    Monster Magnet are back. With their new album, God Says No, the force that is Monster Magnet are once again battering out ears with the most exciting rock¿n¿roll to come out in a long time. From the onslaught of opener ¿Melt¿ to the hilarious romp of final track ¿Take It¿, this album is an absolute winner. Singer/songwriter Dave Wyndorf has reclaimed some of the psychedelic territory that was notably absent on their previous outing, 1998¿s awesome Powertrip, but has lost none of the sheer grunt that the said album provided in abundance. The new single ¿Heads Explode¿ rips along at a terrifying pace, augmented by wild surf guitar and swirling organs, and the next track, ¿Doomsday¿, simmers with a barely concealed venom that is strongly reminiscent of The Stooges in their heyday. ¿Kiss of the Scorpion¿ is a crazy 60s styled go-go dancing track that sits alongside the menacing throb of ¿All Shook Out¿ and the hyper-blues of ¿Gravity Well¿. With ¿Down in the Jungle¿, Wyndorf is at his most wicked, and this is preceded by ¿Queen of You¿, where the band claims brave new territory in an electronic based composition. Despite the fact that many, if not all of the tracks are totally brilliant, the absolute highlight for me was the incredible epic masterpiece, ¿Cry¿. Extending itself to something like eight minutes, the song builds momentum to an almost unbearably intense climax, helped along it¿s way by Wyndorf¿s cool-as-ice vocals and some well placed sitar playing. All in all, this is an album that you must have.

    MONSTER MAGNET - God Says No ... back to roots?

    Monster Magnet are back again with their 5th full-length album ''God Says No''. This album is a leap back to their roots combining elements from their older albums ''Superjudge'' and ''Dopes To Infinity'' as well as their previous, more mainstream, album ''Powertrip''. ''God Says No'' is on the other hand more psychedelic than ''Powertrip'' but on the other it's more accessible and mainstream... This album is pretty hard to describe as other than Monster Magnet album. After couple of listens to the pre-release mp3's I had I was really worried. The album sucked! But I listened to it couple more times and got into it. This is another great release from MM, in my opinion this is better than ''Powertrip''. Thank whatever ''Leaping Lizards'' (a song that was on the promo) is taken away from the release. That song sucked real BAD. I wish they had included ''1970'' (a STOOGES cover that's on the ''God Says No'' single) on the album because that's one great rocking mofo! RECOMMENDATIONS: Melt, My Little Friend, Down In the Jungle, Cry

    God Says No, I say ''Oh Yeah!''

    What do you get when you mix seventies sci-fi B-movies, comic books, bong-culture, sex and rock and roll? Why Monster Magnet of course. It's been their formula from the get go, and ''God Says No'', the bands fifth album with a major label, is no departure from their space-rock heritage. The album still has touches of the Hawkwind and Sabbath influences, and the lyrics still spin tales of sex - ''make my c**k like a pistol, slap you up-side your brain'' - and the excesses of consumer culture - ''a rocket sled utopia/ a self-imposed myopia''. So I suppose you're wondering ''what's the big deal? It sounds like there's nothing new here.'' Well, this album is different, without being a departure from their previous releases... hmmm, how so? For those already indoctrinated into MM's oeuvre, it may well be the height of their musical achievements so far. With songs like the hedonistic yet cynical rip-roaring opener ¿Melt¿ and the troposphere-threatening rocker ¿Heads Explode¿ (the first single) you¿ve got your hard `n heavy rock, or more appropriately RAWK! But you also get songs like ¿Cry¿, a song that puts Gladiator to shame in the epic genre, and the subdued and somewhat rueful ¿Queen of You¿. ''God Says No'' seems to have the mix just right. It may not have the over-all thematic thrust of ''Powertrip'' (1998), but it is a better-crafted, more sincere attempt to make your speakers blow flames like the tusks of the bull-god on the cover, and then dowse these flames with surprising melancholia from Dave Wyndorf and his New Jersey crew. For newcomers to Monster Magnet, this album is the perfect introduction. It was my first MM album, and trust me, it won¿t be your last. I now own the full gamut. If you dig classic Black Sabbath, or are a devotee of Stoner Rock (though that label is deplorable), or if you loved the groove of early nineties bands like Soundgarden and are looking for a new band to carry rock into the future ¿ Monster Magnet is that band! And ''God Says No'' is that album!

    god says no, but we all say yes

    Every new album of Monster Magnet shows that his frontman Dave Wyndorf is searching new sounds forgetting all about the older albums. After Spine Of God and Superjudge (the first two albums with a clearly alternative feeling) arrived Dopes To Infinity, with his psycho-space sounds and without the distotion of their predecessors. After becames Powertrip which it says ROCK!!, with the guitars louder than never. And finally arrived God Says No, the last album, which is the actually the most complete album of the band, searching rock sounds in all the ways. The album seems to start with the classic MM, ''Melt'' it's probably the song with the nearliest sound of the other albums of MM, but it's only the start; the second one ''Heads Explode'' is just a new dimension ,probably the most commercial song of Dave Wyndorf career, but this is not a problem, it's just a very cool song with a superb rhythm that you will not able to stop of listening. Then becomes ''Doomsday'' (dark rock) to lead into ''God Says No'' that it reminds me to The Doors. The album keeps growing with new sounds to MM ''Kiss Of The Scorpion'', ''All Shook Out''(dedicated to Marilyn Manson), ''Gravity Well'', ''My Little Friend'' and ''Queen Of You''. The last tracks ''Down In The Jungle'', ''Cry'' & ''Take It'' confirms that is not an common album of MM, it seems to be a new exploration of Dave Wyndorf to search more sounds, more fans and , why not, more money.

    Monster Magnet Rocks

    Monster Magnet is one of the greatest heavy bands out there today. Incorporating heavy sounds with psychedelia, and a garage band edge, Monster Magnet is firmly placed in the realms of metal and space rock. This album incorporates techniques gleaned from all of their past experience, almost creating a montage of their capabilities. Songs like Heads Explode, Doomsday, Melt, Kiss of the Scorpion, and Down in the Jungle (on the European releases) show the heavy side of the band, as evidenced on their previous album, Powertrip. Songs like Queen of You and God Says No show their tributes to styles the precede them. Cry is a outstanding song which is rooted in psychedelia with heavy outbursts. Wyndorf's lyrics are evocative, empassioned and at times psychotic. If your into heavy guitars with a psychedelic bent, Monster Magnet is for you!!!
