5.0 out of 5 stars Best rock album in years..., 26 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Songs For The Deaf (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...

I agree that this is a great rock album... but not the version on this CD. The first 60 seconds of track 1 are the only bits of the album which AREN'T flat and compressed. There are some good tunes and riffs on this album and it certainly does rock, but I'd rather this CD release (2002 version) hadn't been compressed so much and had some of the punch left in it. Maybe one day a high dynamic range recording will be made available. If that ever happens then the music lurking somewhere underneath the distortion and clipping on this album is good enough that I'd buy it again.
