4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent., 22 July 2008
This review is from: Songs For The Deaf (Audio CD)
Having achieved moderate levels of success with their self-titled debut and Rated R, Queens Of The Stoneage finally hit the big leagues with their third album, Songs For The Deaf. The last album featuring the revolving door policy of old, the QOTSA group on this album features Josh Homme, Nick Oliveri, ex-Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan and most notably, with the Foo Fighters in disarray, Dave Grohl making a welcome return to drums.

Songs For The Deaf finds Homme streamlining the sexy yet doom-laden groove of the previous two albums into something almost perfect. Mixed as a shift between radio stations from song to song, Homme covers more styles here than ever before. Big hit 'No One Knows' is a straight-out pop song; 'Hangin' Tree' is an unsettling, psychedelic groove; the band's trademark stoner metal is covered by the likes of 'First It Giveth' and 'The Sky Is Fallin'; and 'Mosquito Song,' a hidden track, is a completely bizarre, baroque psychedelic ballad, complete with timpani.

Completed by the unnerving, epic quasi-title track, Songs For The Deaf ensured Queens Of The Stoneage superstar status. Well worth a look for any fan of alt-rock or metal.
