5.0 out of 5 stars ahh... fresh air... deliver me from nu-metal, 23 Oct. 2000
This review is from: Rated R (Audio CD)
i'd just about given up on hearing a new(ish) band that sounded completely themselves and then i heard this. it's one of those albums that you couldn't imagine any other band releasing. there's a fair few style changes on the album but they all make perfect sense. there's a lot of guest helping out (particularly ex-members of the screaming trees) and qotsa still manage to keep the thing under total control. 'feel good hit...' kicks it all off and just as soon as that's done burrowing into your brain along comes 'the lost art...'to take up a few more of your cells... by the end of this album your head will have been plugged with so many favourite bits that you'll just have to play the whole thing over again. mark lanegan's guest vocals are amazing... the psych out of 'better living thru chemistry' will tap straight into your brain stem. ther are so many good songs on this album i could kiss the but of each individually but don't take my word for it... find out yourself. artistically the album is a perfect example of knowing when to hold back. they leave out things that lesser bands would have felt compelled to include but it makes the songs better. they play music like a stoned hemingway would have written. it's not quite rock and it's not quite metal but this album should have both camps drooling.
