5.0 out of 5 stars Kyuss at their most accessible, 10 Nov 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Welcome To Sky Valley (Audio CD)
"Welocome to Sky Valley" is my second favourite album of all time. This may not seem like much of a recommendation at first, but it is worth bearing in mind that my favourite is "Blues for the Red Sun", also by Kyuss. Before you go tramping off in search of "Blues....", I really must recommend that you get this one first. Kyuss are not a famous band, and so they don't get much time on radio or t.v. Chances are that anyone who is reading this and doesn't own a Kyuss album already is coming to Kyuss through a more famous band, such as Queens of the Stone Age. Therefore, it is best to listen to the Kyuss album which is most friendly to newcomers, and this is it. "....Sky Valley" is the most highly produced Kyuss album, and is probably the smoothest on the ear. Songs such as Demon Cleaner and Space Cadet are incredibly listener friendly, and I have yet to find the person who doesn't like Supa Scoopa and Mighty Scoop. Probably the roughest songs on the album come towards the end, but the album finishes with one of the greatest, most liquid jams of all time, Whitewater. There's a joke track at the end called Lick Doo, and it is completely out of character for Kyuss. Gardenia possesses one of the greatest riffs ever, and N.O. one of the most screamable choruses.
Overall then, this album is a class act, and a superb introduction to a truly awesome band. With it in your collection, you will be ready to tackle the might of "Blues...".
Why are you still reading. Buy the album......NOW.
Don't make me come out there.....
