Biography

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

Product Description

Product Description

Josh Homme resurrects his Queens of the Stone Age project to powerful effect, following the departure of childhood friend and bassist Nick Oliveri. Lullabies to Paralyze, proves that Homme can continually mastermind freshly engaging and haunting rock-outs. The album includes the rock monster that is lead single, "Little Sister". The new record, the follow-up to 2002's "Songs for the Deaf", features guest appearances from Garbage's Shirley Manson, The Distillers' Brody Dalle, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, Ween's Dean Ween.

BBC Review

A lot has happened to Queens Of The Stone Age centrepoint Josh Homme since the band hurtled into the big time with the brutally brilliant Songs For The Deaf, and it's mostly been about ending. The Distillers' Brody Dalle has stopped being his squeeze, Nick Oliveri has stopped being his bassist and, briefly, his lungs stopped working properly.

Thankfully, none of this has stood in the way of QOTSA producing another belter of an album. Indeed, the quality of Lullabies To Paralyze is so high, you have to start to wonder if the band can actually put a musical foot wrong. Centring its artwork and its ideas on the fear of the unknown, of the fairytale forests and the wolves that will eat you as you sleep, it's dark in a truly Gothic way, but still buoyant enough to get you bouncing around the room.

It's long-time collaborator Mark Lanegan, not Homme, who sets the scene, turning all Nick Cave for the haunting of "This Lullaby".Soon enough, though, the album pitches into the familiar anthemic alt-rock that has already carved the band their place in history.

Picking highlights is like standing outside the witch's house in Hansel and Gretel and choosing which sweet to eat first; there's simply so much choice, yet you know that something lurks within. "In My Head" burns a catchy chorus into your skull, "Little Sister" plunges headlong into racing abandon, "Someone's In The Wolf" is an operatic epic of sublime proportions, and "Long Slow Goodbye" drifts endlessly on a desert road to sorrow.

As with QOTSA, you can't come into the presence of Lullabies To Paralyze expecting an easy ride, but be sure of one thing: if you dare to step into the darkness of the album's heart, you'll find plenty to reward you. --Chris Long

The rush of lengthy reviews for this album are a little tiresome, as is the ridiculous snobery of the reviewer who assumes that a fellow reviewer hasn't listened to QOTSA albums before 'Songs for the Deaf'simply because he alludes to the absence of Dave Grohl- get over yourself man!! The politics aside, this album is a joy. Guitar heaven from start to finish; highlights are the lush 'I never came' which does not 'drag on' as stated by a previous reviewer, but highlights the versatility of Nick's voice, and in placing this track straight after the excellent lead single 'Little Sister' ensures maximum impact. Other high points include CD opener 'This Lullaby' and the fantastic 'Broken Box'. As a whole, the album flows beautifully, yet is more experimental than 'Rated R' and 'SFTD'. Personally speaking I would say 'Lullabies To Paralyze' is the most complete QOTSA album. Bring on Carling Leeds 2005....

Initial signs for this album weren't promising. The sudden departure of Nick Olivieri marked the departure of the only constant member of Josh Homme's ever-changing QOTSA line-up, and Olivieri seemed as essential to the band as Homme himself. Things could've gone so easily awry for album number 4.
However Josh Homme's track record with other projects (notably Desert Sessions) should've been enough to confirm that he is more than capable of going it alone. Lullabies to Paralyze is a testament to this.
Impressively, the first two songs are knocked off within little more than 3 minutes. The gentle acoustics and tortured-larynx Mark Lanegan vocals of This Lullaby give way to the chugging, razor-sharp Medication, which sounds like a two-minute statement of intent.
The following track is arguably the album's highlight. Everybody Knows That You're Insane starts up as a wailing rock dirge, before a neat shift in tempo takes you into the simple and insanely catchy chorus. Tangled Up In Plaid and Burn The Witch are also superb, both stomp-along anthems of the highest order, before the album's most accessible poppy moment, In Your Head (which also appeared in the Desert Sessions).
Little Sister is fine, if somewhat underwhelming as a lead-off single, whilst I Never Came portrays a subtlety previously unregistered in QOTSA's past works. But it's the next two tracks, Someone's In The Wolf and The Blood Is Love that provide the album's backbone. Both lengthy, brooding, power-chord heavy anthems, they sit perfectly alongside one another. Both recall QOTSA's ability to find a great riff, and then completely bludgeon you with it.
The next three tracks show a dramatic shift in mood, and are amongst the sleaziest things QOTSA have done.

For those uninitiated with Queens of the Stone Age, think a little of all the best rock, hard rock and metal groups over the years: Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple et al, throw in a little Alice in Chains (ok, on a few songs, not overall) and a tinge of Soundgarden and you're closer. On this album, if you gathered Tom Waits to pen some dark numbers, catch Tom Yorke in HTTT mode and gather Rob Zombie and his band and lock them away in a basement and make them bash out an album, it might sound like this one, but seriously, QOTSA stand on their own, having carved out their own sound, you wouldn't mistake a QOTSA song for anything else. This album has vaulted them another step forward, fully realised, masterfully executed, and in my opinion is bound to be a classic and should looked back upon as so.
Josh Homme takes his Brothers Grimm influence to new heights with each song, pulling you in to the dark vortex, especially on "Tangled Up in Plaid," destined to be a fan favorite, it's got that "No one Knows" bounce and riffage, impossibly addictive, catchy, infectious; you'll play this one to death, trust me. "Burn the Witch," is a deliciously evil sounding number which, for me, I can hear a faint gospel/blues influence; it's a barn burning stomper in which you might envision angry mobs burning things and chasing heretics, or not out of place in a good horror film. For me it ends a little too soon, it hooks you slowly and then it's over, but a fantastic 3 and a half minutes. "I Never Came" is simply beautiful and wouldn't sound out of place on Radiohead's Hail to the Thief," (equal parts "Sail to the Moon," "2+2=5," "Go to Sleep" and "There There,")
"Someone's in the Wolf" and "The Blood is Love," are concert-ready riff wise, you can just imagine killer extended versions of these.

Over the last ten years The Queens of the Stone Age have consistently offered the perfect blend of talent and originality. With each new album, a new mesh of fragmented perverse thoughts have been combined with mold-breaking visions of song structure. In each of these albums artist line-ups have changed, but the core structure, Nick Oliveri and Josh Holmes, has remained constant. And with Nick's forced departure from the band, cynics have predicted the downfall of one of the modern great rock bands. However, Josh's perservering genious in Lullabies to Paralyze has proven the resilience of Queens.
Their fourth and newest album, Lullabies to Paralyze, contains more simple, less guitar heavy songs. The first single, Little Sister, represents the change in direction of the band. In it a repititious riff is combined with a cowbell, which can best be described as a metronome. The song ends with a radio unfriendly, wonderfully perverse minute long guitar solo.
Everybody Know's Your Insane is the only noticable departure from this catalyst, containing a soft and screechy one minute entrance. It then hurls into a pounding chorus, leading into two minutes of fast paced, guitar driven bliss.
While many claim this simplicity to be the demise of the band, it is in fact the repositioning of a band never meant for mainstream America. Every album they made, including Lullabies to Paralyze, has contained a coherence of darkness that, if noticed by TRL motivated listeners, would only last briefly.
The popularity of Lullabies to Paralyze will most likely reflect this unpopularity, especially since their next single appears to be Someone's in the Wolf. This seven minute song is the darkest on the album, containing hounding vocals and a twisted ringing guitar melody.
