One of the many groups that do not provide any original albums on CD
anymore is Steppenwolf. In most cases, Greatest Hits compilations are great
for those who first discover a group/artist. But for the avid Steppenwolf fan,
every studio album is a must to own. Steppenwolf's 1970 release, Monster
ensures John Kay and Company performing great classic rock on every track on
this original album.

Like the title track, which opens the album, "Monster/Suicide/America."
I'm sure there isn't anyone who hasn't heard this song, one of may Steppenwolf
favorites. "Draft Register", like many late-1960s songs dealing with
politics, is a great song for those who favor political-type compositions.
"Power Play" and "Move Over" are definitely two very powerful
songs, that easily fits the classic rock format. "Fag", like on any
other original Steppenwolf albums, is an blues/rock instrumental. "What
Would You Do (If I DId That To You)" has a funky beat, and again, on other
original Steppenwolf albums, the lead vocals are provided by another member
of the group. The album's closing song, "From Here To There Eventually,"
like the previous songs with John Kay on vocals, is another classic rock
The songs on Steppenwolf's Monster blends extremely well. A
political-inspired album, this album should get the nod of approval from any
classic rock fan, giving the thumbs up. Steppenwolf has always proved that,
despite Greatest Hits compilations, they have other songs that don't
surface on these G.H. compilations to become equally candidates to
the well-known popular Steppenwolf tunes.
