Queens of the Stone Age
By Anthony Bourdain

It came from the desert.

What “it” was, exactly, is still a matter of debate. Are Queens of the Stone Age a band? An association? A concept? The intermittent issue of an unhinged Carlo Von Sexron? The toxic byproduct of other bands? A variously shrinking and expanding group of friends and likeminded visitors? Or a ... Read more in Amazon's Queens Of The Stone Age Store

By D. Hall
Format:Audio CD
It's a bit of a funny one, this... Almost a statement of intent rather than just another album:

As has already been stated numerous times, this is certainly one album that takes a bit of getting used to. If you're just discovering QOTSA this probably isn't a great starting point and even if you're already a bit of a fan it probably won't grab you straight away.

For one thing, you'll have to get your head around the way it's been mixed - On first listen certain high frequencies you'd expect to hear in a music recording simply aren't there, meaning that the album sits in a slightly uncomfortable, not-quite-low-fi sounding grey area... And if you're anything like me (ie. already concerned that you listen to far too much loud music) it might cause you to panic temporarily in the belief that you've gone fifty per cent deaf overnight. Repeated listens however, will reveal that the album is actually quite cleverly mixed and although it may not sound particularly conventional, somehow it helps the album to feel that little bit more twisted and awkward and a bit, well, seedy really.

Once you've gotten used to the mix you then have to contend with the hugely raw, angular nature of the songs. Genuine use of melody is pretty sparse but therein lies the secret of this album - The more you listen to it, the more little hooks and catchy lyrics start to leap out at you seemingly from nowhere, and that's when the cleverness of it all dawns on you. It's almost as if the songs in their entirety aren't really the focal point of the album at all but are merely Generation Game style conveyor belts laiden with lots of cool stuff and the occaisional grand prize; a means of keeping everything moving along until you see something you really like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Am i listening to the same album???? 4 July 2007
By Gigs
Format:Audio CD
Seriously, i cant believe anyone would give this album such a low score. I can only assume these people heard "No-one Knows", and thought all QOTSA was from the same mould. This is, in my opinion, the best and most consistent QOTSA album. Every tune has the weird, grungey, dirty feel which i so love about there music. It is almost unclassifiable, and all the better for it. This is'nt Bon Jovi, this is a challenging ride which is a very rewarding experience. Listen to it a few times and the subtle groove which cuts through the entire album comes to the fore. Stand out tracks are "Sick, sick, sick" and "Make it Witchu", but every track is a gem. Buy it and make your own mind up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 30 Dec 2009
By kiwi
Format:Audio CD
Ok,so to start with, I'm not gonna mention THAT album (apart from just then). Seriously though, 5 years in the world of music is a long time. The only real constant since then has been Homme himself, who seems to grow with confidence and audacity as a composer with each release.

Take the opener, turn on the screw. The trademark gush of guitars is there, but timed to perfection with joshes' groaning(in a good way) and the static drumming. Which means that I don't mind when it breaks down into the same guitar solo and the same abrupt finish that seems more at homme on livelier tracks. what follows is nothing short of a monster of a track, (which I won't describe since thousands of reviewers will have focused on it previously) but even that finds its' match here. A choice track could be the eerily good 'into the hollow' or singles 'make it wit chu' and '3's and 7's'. Despite the air of disappointment surrounding the album, I find myself glaring at the fools expecting sftd 2. If that album was a trip cross the desert, and lullabies a haunting grimm fairy tale, then this album is nothing of the sort. qotsa seem to have captured the essence of life in a 50's power station (not like I'd know), and that suits me just fine.

Don't believe the doubters. Find it. Buy it. Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best QOTSA album yet 9 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
I never used to be more than a casual fan of this band, but this album has changed all that. The rhythms are complex and pounding, lyrics intelligent and razor sharp, and when they slow down for tracks such as "Make it Wit Chu" they display their diversity and cool.

Buy this if you are sick, sick, sick of the bland music-by numbers that fills the charts. This is QOTSA's most consistently brilliant album yet.

3.0 out of 5 stars only a bit sick sick sick 20 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
Its growing on me, definitely a return to their earlier stuff, and there are some great rocking bits there, but I'm not viewing this as an old friend just yet. Hopefully my mind will be changed when I see some of this stuff live. Josh though is still some talent to be reckoned with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Killer Queens Album!! 4 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely brilliant QOTSA album, with loads of future classics throughout the track listing. My only gripe is the new version of "I Wanna Make It Wit Chu" but that's only because I know the Desert Sessions original.

I ordered my copy through this listing and received the German Edition of the album, which has the regular artwork and tracklisting with the new re-recorded version of "The Fun Machine Took A S**t And Died" as the sole bonus track instead of the UK version which features "Running Joke" and "Era Vulgaris" as bonus tracks. Just personal preference, but I think the German tracklisting is far more streamlined and works better than the UK version, while obsessive fans may prefer the Japanese import version which has "Running Joke", "Era Vulgaris" AND "TFMTASAD" as bonus tracks...
