Monster is an album by Steppenwolf. Released in 1969, it was their first LP with new lead guitarist, Larry Byrom instead of Michael Monarch. The album was Steppenwolf’s most political one, making references to important issues at the time, such as the Vietnam War.
The album was the first Steppenwolf album not to feature a US top ten hit, though two singles from the album cracked the top 40: “Move Over” and “Monster”.

The group’s most political album, tackling then-current issues such as the Vietnam War, draft resisters, and the decay of justice in America. These were (and are) important topics, but these lumbering hard rock tunes were not an effective means to address them, politically or musically. It’s hard to make agitprop and pop mix, but even judged simply within the context of Steppenwolf’s records, it lacks memorable compositions, the unexceptional tunes burdened by lyrics that are too heavy-handed. –Richie Unterberger
