This is exactly how i felt ten years ago when Queens of The Stone Age released their second album "Rated R", to understand why you have to go back to the year 2000 when the music world was all about Britney and boy bands and mainstream rock was dominated by loads of nu metal clones, so along with A Perfect Circle's "Mer De Noms", QOTSA's Rated R was a breath of fresh air, real rock played by real musicians! Now ten years later its being released as a two disc Deluxe Edition with a bonus disc of B sides and live performances.

Unlike their self titled debut album which was all written and performed by Josh Homme, "Rated R" was performed by a full by band with loads of guest spots as well. Most famously of course was the addition of Nick Oliveri on bass and vocals. Opening track Feel Good Hit Of the Summer starts of with Oliveri's driving bass and a name check of class A Drugs, and also has Judas Priest's Rob Halford on backing vocals, Josh has also stated this song was meant as a knife into the back of the neck of their stoner rock tag which he has always hated(totally agree with him on that one). The Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret follows next and if anything shows the band's softer side!

What can I say?! I bought this album belatedly after purchasing Songs for the Deaf, naively thinking that the aforementioned album was a one off masterpiece. How wrong could I have been?!!!
What a way to open an album with 'Feel Good Hit of the Summer'!! C-c-c-co-co- Cocaine!!! A hymn to hedonism i've been waiting for all my life . . .
There isn't one duff track on the album, and the variety of songs on display is stupendous. My personal favourite has to be 'Better living through Chemistry.
If there is a title to be given for the coolest contemporary front man, surely it has to be Josh Homme. The man just oozes charisma, whether it be his singing or guitar playing.
Lullabies to Paralyse is another immense album, but thats for another review ...

Queens Of The Stone Age
Rated Rx (Deluxe Edition)
(Interscope 2000/2010)

A fantastic version of a fantastic album, with more or less everything you could wish for in a deluxe edition of a ten year old album. The brilliant 11 track album is isolated on CD1 whilst CD2 contains all 6 B-sides (unlike the previous UK special edition) like `Ode to Clarissa' and `Born To Hula' and the great 2000 Reading Festival appearance.

Queens of the Stone Age arose in the 1990s out of desert storm created by the ashes of metal gods Kyuss, a band who featured both the dynamic presence of lead singer/guitarist Josh Homme and the wizard bearded bass fiend Nick Oliveri (if you have never heard "Gardenia" seek it out now). The special thing about QOTSA is that they are a unpredictable, super intelligent hard rock band who defy hard rock clichés. Homme maybe riff obsessed but they are classic riffs with interesting twists and turns, even on something as basic as the greatest steal of German "ommpah" music ever on the brilliant "No one knows". What other band could generate a debate currently raging on the Amazon music forum at the moment whether "Josh Homme is the sexiest musician alive"? Frankly I am rather agnostic about the point but its further proof that QOTSA have a cool credibility and remain the US's most vibrant heavy rock band not least of all in the ability to attract stellar "side musicians" like Dave Grohl and Mark Lanagan.

What a treat then to have their best album released (it was of course voted as the NME writers' album of the year in 2000) in this deluxe edition containing in addition a blistering performance from the Reading festival in 2000 and some wonderful curiosities including a sort of a cover of Carly Simon's "Your so vain" and a nice version of Romeo Void's new wave classic, "Never Say Never". It is the Rated Rx however that is the star of the show. In the ten years since its release it has aged wonderfully. Is there a better album opener on any stoner record than the stuttering "Feel good hit of the summer"?

Over 10 years on this album still rocks. Classic album. The version well worth price. You of course get the album, the B side tracks the came with the 1st edition. The version also includes tracks from the bands show at Reading festival in 2000.
