  1. God Says No brings the New Jersey quintet into the millennium with the same sharp approach of their other four records--it's loud, it's brash.

    Less hook-a-minute than its predecessor, 1998's Powertrip, but with a more heavily articulated wallop. [Jun/Jul 2001, p.114]
  3. Here's music tailor-made for cruising down the road with the wind blowing through your mullet.
  4. Another appealing throwback to the best in '70s hard rock.
  5. 70
    On God Says No, Monster Magnet sounds more simply like a cross between Soundgarden and any of a dozen longhaired stoner rock bands.
  6. In contrast to the relatively concise muscle car that was Powertrip, Magnet's 1998 commercial breakthrough, God Says No luxuriates in a decadent psych-rock whirlpool, improbably bridging the chasm between the Music Machine and Nine Inch Nails.
  7. The new Monster Magnet album is kinda crappy, and they'd better check themselves before they quite irrevocably wreck themselves.

    Once again Dave Wyndorf and co. continue to progress their sound by introducing new elements into the Monster Magnet sound, all the while Once again Dave Wyndorf and co. continue to progress their sound by introducing new elements into the Monster Magnet sound, all the while remaining consistent and true to themselves. This band is definetly getting better with age and making New Jersey proud. "God says No" brings some bluesy moments and more hooks than any of it's predecessors. This may be the most unapologetic, pedal to the metal, take no prisoners, old fashioned rock and roll band in the world. Expand

    Really not a bad little rock record. Not a bad one at all.

    Good, more pop than the earlier albums though. Better albums are Superjudge and Dopes to Infinity.

    There are a couple of good tracks on it, but basically not nearly as good as any of the previous albums...sigh.
