Only real sound, that is what music needs. Don't try to be cool when you choose music. Just select what you really want to listen to at that moment. Music never exists for people around you but just for you.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Monster-0 is Daemon Hatfield, a song writer living in San Francisco. He writes catchy pop and electronica with a wide variety of sounds and instruments. He hopes his albums sound like a good mixtape. It's pronounced with a "zero," by the way. Monster-0 is the three-headed dragon that fought Godzilla in the old Japanese monster movies. Much of what Daemon produces is inspired by his childhood, videogames, and Japanese culture. Please to enjoy.

Monster-0 rocks! Not disappointed in this.
I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this album. For the most part, I don't like much electronic music or rather, I don't hear much electronic music that's any good. However, I wasn't disappointed by this album. For the most part, it sounds very well done considering it's one man at the helm. Each song sounds unique and whenever Daemon adds his vocals, he adds a certain extra flair to his tracks. My favorites are "Let's Say Our Goodbyes" (some vocals against a catchy acoustic guitar), "Let's Have a Sunset Together" (no vocals, just a sweet and semi-melancholy mix of electronic sounds), "Don't Worry About the World" (Daemon drops some more vocals in a very light-hearted tune), and "Entex" (no lyrics, just another awesome mix of sounds for a serene track). The only song I didn't really like much was "Fall Apart Again" and that was because there's a kind of reverberating sound that I feel overwhelms the rest of the song and makes it difficult to listen to. The only other artist I can think of that Daemon's music reminds me a little of is She Wants Revenge, but I can say right now, hands-down, I like Monster-0's music a helluva lot more than I like theirs. I am very pleased with my purchase and I'd highly recommend this album to anyone, even if electronic synth pop isn't quite your cup of tea. Scoop!

Here's the scoop:
The sample clips are too short to do some of the tracks justice. I was worried about several songs that turned out to be exquisite. To get a better idea of what to expect, head over to the Monster-0 MySpace page. As of writing, five full songs from Don’t Worry About the World are there. If you like what you hear even a little, know it just gets better with the full album.
Most of the tracks are mellow and soothing. Don’t worry if that is not your thing though, there are some very catchy tracks well. What really makes this album really shine is the amazing use of electronic synthesizers and tools to turn one man into a dazzling array of sounds. The voice distortion works remarkably well. I would not have guessed there were no other singers and it sounds great. There is a surprising variety of sound, constantly changing not only from track to track but inside each track. The aggravating repetitiveness that plagues the electronica genre is almost entirely absent. While not the focus of the album, clever lyrics to appear across many tracks. “Robocop vs. Terminator” is exceptionally well written. I smile every time I listen.
Not that Don’t Worry About the World is perfect. “Let’s Have a Sunset Together” incorporates some deliberate imperfections like gaps, stuttering, and scratches that don’t always work. Some tracks repeat the same pattern a few times too many before changing it up. I also prefer the electronic majority over the acoustic minority. Really though, this is all simply personal preference and nitpicky at that. This album is fantastic and I highly recommend it. “Keep Me Informed” has been stuck in my head since I first heard it and even my least favorite track is still worth listening to. Buy this album!

Awesome
I really like Daemon's (Monster-0) music. I'm not the biggest fan of electro, but the mix he creates with electro-pop is really awesome. Some songs I like more than others, but in general, this album is pretty effing awesome. All of the tunes are pretty catchy and really like-able. If you like pop/rock, this will do. As the tags say, if you like Mobey or Beck, Monster-0 is for you.

I could listen to this album for weeks on end and NEVER get tired of it!
This time last year, I had a solid hatred for techno/pop music (even though I never really listened to it). "I'd rather listen to Nirvana." I would say as I turned the radio dial "Techno is lame." Holy cow, was I an idiot. Monster-0 has opened my ears to the paradise that is "computer music".

This album brings me pure joy. Every song tells a heartwarming story; whether it be about having fun in life, or Robocop! Something worth noting is that this isn't strict techno. The album features some acoustic tracks that will soothe your eardrums like nothing else. The album kicks off with "Let's Have a Sunset Together", I can't even describe the song to you, it's just beautiful synth. The album then keeps the awesome coming with one great song after another; my favorites being "You Are My Drum Machine", "Don't Worry About the World", "Keep Me Informed", "Every Part of the World" and "Let's Say Our Goodbyes".

In closing, if you love techno, or maybe just haven't given it a fair chance, check out "Don't Worry About The World". This is easily the best album I've listened to since Nirvana's greatest hits CD. Yes, I'm a Nirvana fan boy, but I guess that goes to show that even a grunge-rock lover like myself can open their ears to the sweet sounds of Monster-0. Stellar record.
