Stoner rock mainstays Fu Manchu are approaching their quarter-century anniversary, but they've still got some new riffs in them. 'Gigantoid' is their latest full-length, continuing their fuzzy, pummelling legacy of neanderthal repetitive desert-rock riffing, scorched-earth guitar solos and monotone drawled vocals.

Gigantoid lacks the fun and carefree sound that attracted me to their music in the first place, and that's okay. Fu Manchu got older and started taking a more serious approach to crafting their music. All bands change over time, and this is simply the natural direction that Fu Manchu went. I'm neither happy nor sad about it, and as a fan, I listen to Gigantoid with that understanding. I would recommend this release to long-time fans, but to those unfamiliar with the band, check out every album from No One Rides to King of the Road.
