Milking The Stars: A Re-Imagining of Last Patrol is a studio album by the New Jersey rock band Monster Magnet. Released in November 2014 just thirteen months after Last Patrol, Milking The Stars is a "re-imagined" version of the album with new songs, re-worked arrangements and two live cuts.

BackgroundEdit

On 10 September 2014, following a successful tour in support of Last Patrol, Monster Magnet would announce Milking The Stars, describing the album as a "What if?" alternate reality. The album features two live songs recorded at the AB in Belgium circa 2014, serving as a introduction to Chris Kosnik in the band.[1] The band would also premiere one of these re-worked songs in "No Paradise For Me" on that same day.[2]

Milking The Stars was released on 14 November 2014 in continental Europe, 17 November 2014 in the UK, and 18 November 2014 in the US and Canada. It would attain positive reviews from the likes of The Obelisk,[3] Smells Like Infinite Sadness,[4] Louder Sound,[5] New Noise Magazine[6] and Metal Temple, the last of whom awarded the album a perfect 10/10.[7]
