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

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite album of all time... 7 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
This really is my favourite album of all time. I have to disagree with the review below saying that the two later queens albums are better. They can't really be compared in this way because the first album is quite different in style. Yes, they have progressed as a band, but this album will always remain my favourite because of it's lo-fi, dry sound. Another thing i love about this album is Alfredo Hernandez's drumming. This was the only queens record he played on and he has a real hypnotic, bare sound. Josh Homme's guitar is mind blowing on this album, especially in some of the solo's - like at the end of "Avon" (my all time favourite queens songs, along with "You Would Know"). If you really like Songs for the Deaf but arent sure if this debut is worth picking up think again!

5.0 out of 5 stars No your all wrong sorry! 2 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is QOTSA album presents them at there rawest lo-fi best buy far. The best songs on the album are Regular John, How to handle a rope and You cant quit me baby. In a music scene full of teenie boping heart break lyric pop punk and crappy goth metal bands with speach impedements this is real rock and roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Missing the point 25 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm basing this on the review before this one, where every single track is given a rating. Why? The album works because it works as a whole. Just like Kyuss's albums, the whole album is like one long, shape shifting song, and as such cannot be reviewed track by track. The basics are, this album rocks. Its bone crushingly heavy, surprisingly melodic and spookily hypnotic, and its difficult to choose between this album and 'Rated R' in terms of quality. I reckon buy them both, and buy anything else that Josh has had a hand in cos the guy is a bona fide genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning post-stoner masterpiece 7 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Drawing from their Kyuss and most defintely Desert Sessions pieces, Josh Homme and Alfredo Hernandez have created a blend of music that is the aural equivalent of suddenly understanding why the Universe exists. The album is delivered in a minimalist way that belies its depth and heaviness. Gone are the mammoth riffs of Kyuss, replaced by melodies that carry another type of heaviness, one that tunes into your mind and takes it down beyond any mind trip you've had. Suddenly everything makes sense. The world of music is made complete and everything is understood. Genuinely an album that makes all other music obselete, and that includes the genre that Homme has already blessed us with. Queens of the Stone Age have shifted the boundaries and created a whole new experience, one that is so perfect that it seems like a natural progression. Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 24 Feb 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album cannot be faulted in any way. There is not a dull song on the album and the level of musical talent expressed by Homme in all of the tracks is astonishing. If you are at all inclined towards rock or alternative metal and you do not own this album, buy it. Rated R, Songs for the Deaf, Lullabies to paralyze, Dessert sessions vol9&10 and Kyuss's Sky Valley are also worth considering.

4.0 out of 5 stars QUEENS DEBUT GETS LONG AWAITED REISSUE 7 Mar 2011
By nin/ja77 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It's taken a while but finally Queens Of The stone age have reissued and remastered their self titled debut album. This album unless you bought it back in the day is very hard to find any where for a reseanoble price, i can still remember finding my copy back in 2002 (just after Songs For The Deaf came out) in an Traditional Irish Music shop!! strange but true. The album was released on an independent label back in 1998 by Loosegroove records in the US and Roadrunner Records in Europe and now get's the reissue treatment courtsey of Rekords Rekords. This was Josh Hommes first record since the end of Kyuss and and a brief stint in The Screaming Trees and while it sold okay it wasn't untill their next two albums Rated R and Songs For The Deaf broke the band to a wider audience that people wanted to go back and buy the debut record.

The album is almost entierly played by Josh Homme as he play guitar, bass(under an alias of carlos Von Sexton) and piano as well as all vocals, Alfredo Hernández(Kyuss, Brant Bjork) plays most of the drums on the album. Regular QOTSA contributors Dave Catching, Hutch and Chriss Goss also appear. Despite being included in the album artwork and appearing in a phone message on the end of the album Nick Oliveri does not play on the album.

The album itself has stood the test of time and is full of unforgettable riffs and songs that still get played live to this day. there's not many better album openers than "Regular John" which is still one of the finest songs Homme has ever writtten and when played live can usually go on for 10 minutes, second track Avon originally apperared on Desert Sessions' Volume 3: Set Coordinates For The White Dwarf!!! in a slightly different form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Queens' sound at its most primal 5 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
A true tour-de-force of an album which paved the way for what was to come from Qotsa whilst also separating itself from a Kyuss-carbon-copy.
1)Regular John- A soaring, fuzzy, hypnotic riff that combines to startlingly brilliant effect with Homme's soft voice. 9/10
2)Avon- Achingly contemporary, this is a standout for the best bit of Qotsa drumming to be heard until a certian Dave Grohl came on the scene 9/10
3)If Only- Almost pop-like with its catchy chorus but this is so much better than anything you'll hear in the charts. A song for summer. 8/10
4)A groovy yet gargantuan track that pounds into your head. Homme's lyrics are very sharp here. Only tailback is the repeated riff that goes on for the last 2 minutes 8/10
5)You Would Know-A slow, psychedelic number that takes a few listens to like. Excellent chorus and a very unique song. 8/10
6)How to Handle a Rope= When it comes to Qotsa's best riffs, this is a genuine contender. However, the drumming, basswork and vocals match the guitar's excellence throughout to produce a Queens classic. 9.5/10
7)Mexicola- When you hear the bass rumbling at the start you know your in for a lot of noise and when it comes it winds your way into your head and doesnt get out. Superb stuff. 9/10
8)Hispanic Impressions- An instrumental, that sounds lightweight considering whats come before. Quite repetitive also, but an example of Homme and co's musicianship nonetheless. 6/10
9)You Can;t Quit Me Baby- Possibly the best bassline of the last 10 years and the best song ever to be wrtitten about a psycho-stalker. Truly breathtaking, epic. 9/10
10)Give the Mule What He Wants- A song that flows and stutters in equal measure but somehow works. Instantly loveable.
