Huge is the fourth studio album by American alternative rock band Caroline's Spine. Most of the tracks on the album were re-recorded when the band was signed with Hollywood Records for the their fifth album, Monsoon. The B-side featured several acoustic tracks, which were a significant departure from the band's usual electric guitar onslaught. Lead guitarist Mark Haugh even took the reins, writing and performing lead vocals for the song "On the Ground".
