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

On the surface this is a very strong rock record, packed with memorable tracks bearing QOTSA's loud, chugging hallmark sound. The album flows smoothly from one song to the next, helped by short intermissions between tracks by spoof radio DJs. It's hard to find one duff moment on this CD. What makes it truly worthy of all five stars, however, is the moments of genius that stick in the mind after repeated listenings; a sound here, a chord there, that reveal attention to detail and diverse influences that lift the record into a class of its own.
I would recommend this CD to anybody who appreciates unique, engaging rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving to the top of the pile... 11 Mar 2003
Format:Audio CD
Queens Of The Stone Age have seen their stock rise steadily over the last few years and with 'Songs For The Deaf' it seems set to reach new heights, the steady increases multiplying into an unstoppable force.
Recruiting Dave Grohl and Mark Lanegan certainly helps. What band wouldn't be improved by these two talents. Grohl is back doing what he does best, adding a light and shade to the overall sound that isn't witnessed often enough from the drumming in most rock groups (including his own, overrated, Foo Fighters). Lanegan adds his considerable songwriting talent to three of the tracks on offer, including the superb single, 'No One Knows' with its jaunty guitar motif and all-too-hummable refrain.
'No One Knows' forms the centrepiece of the opening triumvirate of tracks, all three swept along on the kind of riffs most bands would kill for. 'First It Giveth' in particular gets the pulse racing and some consideration to likely speeding fines should be given by anyone planning to play this song whilst driving.
The album takes on many moods after its high voltage opening, evoking 60s surf music ('Another Love Song'), 70s glam ('Gonna Leave You' and 'Do It Again'), Zeppelin-esque mystique ('The Sky Is Falling' and the awesome 'Mosquito Song') and the obligatory Black Sabbath homage ('God Is In The Radio'). There's even a Kinks cover version in there ('Everybody's Gonna Be Happy').
This may all make it sound like a record from another age. And in a way it is, no-one out there is making records like this at the moment. Yet there is still a very contemporary feel to the overall sound of the album.
It's also refreshing to hear a band using influences to do just that - influence - rather than copying them wholesale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best rock album in years... 26 Oct 2002
Format:Audio CD
I've only recently started listening to 'Queens of the Stone Age'. After purchasing the exceptional 'Rated R', I thought I'd give their new album a listen... and I was amazed. This really is the best rock album in years. I don't mean nu-metal, i mean rock album. Queens of the stone age are tight, loud and catchy as hell. I read some reviews on this album which say the album needs a few listens, but I personally found this album instantly addictive, AND I'M NOT EVEN A 'ROCK' fan, prefering the likes of Jeff Buckley. Another thing to note is Dave Grohl's outstanding drumming. I always considered him to be 'average' but from this album you'll see he is far from. Finally, ignore reviews which say the album recording is 'flat' and 'compressed'. The first 10 seconds of track 1 sounds that way, but that soon changes... you'll see...

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget other reviews, forget other bands... 16 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
Songs for the deaf is quite frankly, the culmination of nearly a decade and a half of hard work and experience in the business, and a group of musicians fulfilling their exciting potentials. Josh Homme has never sounded more confident vocally, alot of the tracks on QOTSA's third album being all over his range - whilst combining genial riffs. With the support of Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters fame, Nick Oliveri supplies the meanacing, creeping bass sounds that linger in the air only to be pummled just in time by Daves agressive, hard-hitting yet complex drumming style. Mark Lanegan returns for this album adding vocals to 'A song for the dead' 'hanging tree'and 'a song gor the deaf'. Songs for the Deaf is an instant classic that, although taking a darker, more melodic twist from 'Rated R' (previous QOTSA album) fulfills all of its promise. Troy Van Leeuw from A Perfect Circle supplies rhythm guitar and some excellent mandolin work when the haunting wails of songs like 'No One KNows' and 'The Sky Is Falling' are put into play. The album uses alot of different instruments to create their unique sounds, such as the mandolin, keyboards, effects and even a backing orchestral set at times. Queens Of The Stone Age fans will not be dissapointed. This album has done very well without losing that drug-induced QOTSA vibe, and new listeners will surley be hooked for good. I was. Having taken Black Sabbaths formations of stoner rock, and developed it through Kyuss, it is this incarnation of Josh Homme and Nick Oliveris work that stands out abopve all others. With the rest of the band playing an important part, Queens Of The Stoneage is becoming a household name - if your household is the dark rock fortress on the corner of Rock st. and Drugs ave. This band have definatley made their name and will forever go down in alternative rock history for THIS album. if you dont own it, your record collection is null and void.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2002's album of the year- no doubt 10 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the best modern-day rock albums. Whether it's Dave Grohl's amazing drumming, or Josh Homme's genius, or just the Homme-Grohl-Lanegan-Oliveri musicianship, something makes this album rock. And rock hard it does.

So, it's based completely on a radio station format. It opens up with the curiously titled 'You Might Think I'm Only Worth A Dollar But I Feel Like A Millionaire'- sung, or rather screamed by the unique Nick Oliveri (who has, by now left the band). And probably for the best as well. The music is absolutely brilliant. Credit needs to be given where credit is due, and even though Oliveri is a complete nutter, his music playing skills are not in question. He screams his way through the opening track, with some hammering riffs behind him. 9/10.

Track two, and the excellent 'No One Knows'. This time, Homme takes charge of vocals, and at least things calm down in that sense. The musi steps up a gear though. It's an absolute blinder, and one of the best rock tracks of the decade so far. 10/10.

Track three is the brilliant 'First It Giveth'. The chorus really makes this song, simply with the lyrics 'First it giveth then it taketh away'. Homme sings very well here, and it's another corker. 10/10.

Track four, 'A Song For The Dead' is, dare I say it, a 'Dave Grohl' song, more than anything. The music covers up his mesmeric drumming skills, especially the last 80 odd seconds. It's dark, and it's super. Mark Lanegan takes over on vocals here. But the main focus of the song is Grohl, and the song deserves 10/10 simply for his talents alone.

Track five, 'The Sky Is Fallin'', is a rather drift-away song, until the unforgiving guitars shoot through like proverbial arrows.
