This album served as a blue print for everything that followed from QoTSA.

It represents a band creating their very own sound for the first time and is perhaps most notable for its strong compositions and Josh Homme's distinctive vocals. The bass is a driving force behind the sound as well as some distinct harmonies that you would expect to find on something a little more 'easy listening'.

I find it hard to fault this album - it really is a great listen and if you know your QoTSA, you won't be disappointed.

Dirty Rock n Roll with a Stooges feel.

This really is my favourite album of all time. I have to disagree with the review below saying that the two later queens albums are better. They can't really be compared in this way because the first album is quite different in style. Yes, they have progressed as a band, but this album will always remain my favourite because of it's lo-fi, dry sound. Another thing i love about this album is Alfredo Hernandez's drumming. This was the only queens record he played on and he has a real hypnotic, bare sound. Josh Homme's guitar is mind blowing on this album, especially in some of the solo's - like at the end of "Avon" (my all time favourite queens songs, along with "You Would Know"). If you really like Songs for the Deaf but arent sure if this debut is worth picking up think again!

Drawing from their Kyuss and most defintely Desert Sessions pieces, Josh Homme and Alfredo Hernandez have created a blend of music that is the aural equivalent of suddenly understanding why the Universe exists. The album is delivered in a minimalist way that belies its depth and heaviness. Gone are the mammoth riffs of Kyuss, replaced by melodies that carry another type of heaviness, one that tunes into your mind and takes it down beyond any mind trip you've had. Suddenly everything makes sense. The world of music is made complete and everything is understood. Genuinely an album that makes all other music obselete, and that includes the genre that Homme has already blessed us with. Queens of the Stone Age have shifted the boundaries and created a whole new experience, one that is so perfect that it seems like a natural progression. Genius.

This is QOTSA album presents them at there rawest lo-fi best buy far. The best songs on the album are Regular John, How to handle a rope and You cant quit me baby. In a music scene full of teenie boping heart break lyric pop punk and crappy goth metal bands with speach impedements this is real rock and roll.

I'm basing this on the review before this one, where every single track is given a rating. Why? The album works because it works as a whole. Just like Kyuss's albums, the whole album is like one long, shape shifting song, and as such cannot be reviewed track by track. The basics are, this album rocks. Its bone crushingly heavy, surprisingly melodic and spookily hypnotic, and its difficult to choose between this album and 'Rated R' in terms of quality. I reckon buy them both, and buy anything else that Josh has had a hand in cos the guy is a bona fide genius.
