Monster Magnet have re-imagined/re-vamped 2013's "Last Patrol" adding four brand new tracks, and some exclusive live ones. They have made the vocals sound even more like Eddie Vedder vomiting into a flask and have sandpapered off any edges to reveal a chugging, bluesy Hootie smoothie.
8/10 gbar Customer review, 4th March 2017
Describing Milking The Stars as a remix-album would be to miss the point. Although most of these songs are trippy takes on their Last Patrol-counterparts, the gods of rock and roll have graced us with new instrumentation and even a couple of original cuts. Liberal amounts of psychedelic organs are key to unlocking those fabled weird doors of perception, distancing the band even further from the cock rock that characterized most Monster Magnet releases post Dopes To Infinity. Sacrificing the hard rock edge of “Mindless Ones” in favor of acid-tinged heavy psych, the redressing is surprisingly natural, suggesting that this reimagining did not come impulsively. After all, if Last Patrol hinted at a return to the band’s roots, this version is simply a logical continuation.
