About Robot and Monster

Robot Monster is the ninth album by Canadian guitarist Don Ross, released in 2003. It is his third and final recording on the Narada/Virgin label. The CD takes its name from the Sci-Fi movie. Music critic Mark Deming, writing for Allmusic, wrote the album 'The disc is mostly balanced between the sort of aggressive, mojo-working-again kind of optimistic intensity and more reflective ballads that show a heart in the healing process. Knowing the story of his wife's passing from cancer makes the lush, languid, steel guitar-enhanced 'Goodbye Kelly Goodbye' a true tearjerker.' Critic Bernard Richter praised the album and wrote 'Each one of the 12 tunes has a strong musical foundation, and the listener while taken aback because of Ross' sheer virtuosityis easily pulled into the music itself.' All songs by Don Ross except as noted.
