Timothy's Monster is the fourth full-length studio album by Motorpsycho, and their first on a major label (it was released through EMI in Norway and through the independent label Stickman Records in the rest of the world). Released as a double-CD or triple-LP. A 4-CD version was released by Rune Grammofon & Stickman to tie in with Motorpsycho's appearance at the 2010 Øyafestivalen on August 14, 2010, where the band played the album in its entirety (albeit in a different running order).[1]
