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!Read more ›
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 ...
Rated Rx (Deluxe Edition)
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.

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"?Read more ›

'Rated R' is regarded by many QoTS fans as being the peak of their recorded output. I like the album, but in my humble opinion it falls just short of 'Lullabies to Paralyze' and... Read morePublished on 18 Mar. 2014 by WOOLLY MAMMOTH
