Superjudge

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Monster Magnet; Genre: Metal

You're astride your gleaming Harley in the countryside, the wind is hitting you in the face, and Monster Magnet singer Dave Wyndorf is bellowing at you over a squall of eat-my-dust biker-rock guitars — and it feels great. Okay, so you don't actually own a motorcycle, much less one with a tape deck, but this New York band's bellowing major-label debut puts you in the driver's seat anyway. And just to prove they aren't good simply for the musical equivalent of a loud belch, they cap Superjudge off with a gritty, sitar-driven ballad that gives psychedelia a good name again. Enjoy the ride. B+
