Product Description

Amazon.ca

Any similarities that Queens of the Stone Age may have to Kyuss are probably inevitable--all three members of this group were in Kyuss at one time or another. The intention of this band, however, is not to create Kyuss 2, but to make its own brand of noise. Falling somewhere between Can and Canned Heat, the trio brings an occasional electronic aura to the guitar-based chug of stoner rock. While not as brash and earsplitting as their previous band (singer-guitarist Josh Homme--a Jack Bruce sound-alike--lays back where Kyuss frontman John Garcia would have yelped), these guys have made a debut album that is nevertheless an intriguing, aggressive, trippy aural journey that bows down to no trend. --Janiss Garza

Review

A bit too cerebral to fall under the stoner-rock rubric (Fu Manchu). -- Entertainment Weekly

This is my favorite album by one of my favorite bands, and yes, i heard them before you did!
I really can't think of another album where i wouldn't dream of skipping a single song. This album is so solid from beginning to end. Is that a testament to greatness or what? Every track is just as awesome as the one before it. Since they are all equal, i won't bother pointing out 'Mexicola', 'How to Handle a Rope', You Would Know', 'Avon', and 'You Can't Quit Me Babe' are my personal favorites. That would undermine my whole mission statement.
I'm bothered by the thought of being some lame best-of album producer, and having to cut a lot of these tracks out of a greatest hits cd because this band has done much better work on 'Rated R' and 'Songs for the Deaf'. I read every day the album is dying as an artform and i fear this may end up being one of the last truly great long players.
This album doesn't feature the sharp production or the polish featured on the last two albums, but it has a definite sense of style you don't find in bands usually forged from the ashes from the meltdown of another band. The example that comes to mind right now is Velvet Revolver. Does anyone in their right mind find their sound to be refreshing? The only bamds i've felt this way about hearing their debut in the last five years would be Rival Schools and Killswitch Engage...
Buy this cd and just leave it on repeat. I saw the movie 'Wrong Turn', which sucked, but i convinced myself i liked it for a short period only because it has two songs from this album on the soundtrack...
Let's hope Nick's departure doesn't ruin something that has almost single-handedly saved rock'n'roll...

3.0 out of 5 stars Their worst album... which still isn't bad! Oct. 1 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
It's their first and most boring album. But if you're buying it, you should already have an option as to how you feel about the music on this album. QOTSA are amazing. Their worst album is still pretty good! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful remaster Aug. 2 2011
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
The new double vinyl remaster with bonus tracks and gatefold sleeve are worth every penny you will spend on this album. The pressing is silent and extremely dynamic, the extra songs included are beyond the average filler most extra tracks inevitably wind up being seen as, coming from the long out of print gamma ray ep all real fans know and love.

Buy it,

James

5.0 out of 5 stars great album Feb. 12 2004
By Brian
Format:Audio CD
If you were to ask me what the best QOTSA cd was, I would have to say it would be their debut. Sure, "Rated R" and "SFTD" are great, but their debut is just better, even without Dave Grohl playing drums on their first album (or second). Overall great rock album.

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet mother of god Jan. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album, I can't say I like it as much as Songs for the Deaf because it's got nothing close to the same dynamics, but so be it. Josh Homme sounds pretty sweet, but that's not saying much. I love regular john, avon, you would know and give gonna leave you baby. I also love I was a teenage hand model, the sounds are trippy enough that it's a good closer. Get this album immediately, you'll be impressed. hurry up.

QOTSA self titled reigns supreme in my cd collection I guess, since I still listen to it regularly.
