Just came around to listen to this. Like Milking the Stars it's a scattershot, more psych-heavy reimagining of the original album. However the structure, the tone and the overall vibe is so different that it pretty much functions as an entirely new project.



Right now I feel that Cobars and Fire is stronger than Milking probably due to the bigger focus on the groovy, disorted riffing, rather than the acoustic renderings. The second half is especially strong, When The Planes Fall From The Sky, Ball of Confusion, and the closer are major stoner epics.



With this, Milking and Last Patrol I can safely say that Monster Magnet is in their trippiest musical period since the 90's. Hope they keep this level of quality up in their future releases.

Definitely. Dave finally seems to be in a really good place after his problems with drugs and I'm really hopeful for the band's new material.
