Stunning post-stoner masterpiece,
By A Customer
This review is from: Queens of the Stone Age (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.
