Stone Age Complications is an amazing EP that contains six rare tracks: Who'll be Next in Line (a Kinks cover), Wake Up Screaming (a Subhumanz cover), No One Knows (Unkle Reconstruction), Most Exalted Potentate of Love (a Cramps cover), Born to Hula and The Bronze, two rare, original QOTSA tracks.

Individual track reviews:

WHO'LL BE NEXT IN LINE: A great Kinks cover also available on QOTSA's "Feel Good Hit of the Summer" EP. Josh Homme's raspy lyrics and edgy guitar in this song make it a respectable cover of the original. Overall, a pretty good track, though a different style than their other work.

Score: 8.5/10

WAKE UP SCREAMING: My favorite of the Queens' cover songs. The song starts off with a slow guitar riff and changes tempo many times throughout the song. The whole song has a creepy overtone, that fits the title perfectly. Josh's "screaming" in the song is very well done, and adds to the creepiness and also the excellence of the song. Overall, this song is amazing, and one of my favorite QOTSA songs.

Score: 10/10

NO ONE KNOWS (UNKLE REMIX): Probably the lowest point on the disc for me. The remix does imitate the paranoid attitude that the original song had. The original "No One Knows" has long been one of my favorite Queens of the Stone Age songs, but the remix seemed like a completely different song, only the lyrics (heavily distorted) seemed similar to the original. Overall, this song is not half-bad, though on an EP filled with amazing songs, it places itself among the lower tier of QOTSA tracks.

Score: 7/10

MOST EXALTED POTENTATE OF LOVE: This is a pretty good cover of the Cramps' original song. Josh Homme's vocals sound surprisingly like Erick Purkhiser's original vocals.

Complicated? Sept. 12 2004
By E. A Solinas - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Lambast-your-ears hard rock got its new champions in the Queens of the Stone Age, with their dark sound and screaming, heavy instrumentation. In "Stone Age Complications," they link together a six-song EP of their remixes, rarities and covers -- and the result is very solid.

It kicks off with a solid cover of the Kinks "Who'll Be the Next in Line," a bit more conventionally catchy than what the Queens of the Stone Age usually do, but still with the flavor of their work. After that is an eerie cover of Subhumanz's "Wake Up Screaming," and a buzzing, heavy version of the Cramps' "Most Exalted Potentate of Love."

But Queens of the Stone Age don't neglect their own material either. An unusual remix of "No One Knows" is included, very synthy and gothic. There are also two unused songs: "Born to Hula," a percussion-heavy rocker with lots of bass and cymbals, and the slowly built-up, distorted "The Bronze."

Usually compilations of B-sides, covers and remixes -- especially if they include all three -- are a mixed bag. But surprisingly, Queens of the Stone Age keep their EP solid and smooth. It feels like a bunch of puzzle pieces that click smoothly together, yet don't sound monotonous.

The instrumentation is still in fine form in "Complications" -- in true rock tradition, these guys mix heavy guitar riffs with grinding bass and some fast-as-lightning percussion. And there's a hint of dark, watery synth at the start of the "No One Knows" Unkle Remix, which gives a surreal edge to a song which wasn't surreal to start with.

The vocals are equally good -- Josh Homme, of Kyuss and the Desert Sessions, has a strong, slightly sweet voice. It's a little annoying when he launches into frantic howls at the end of "Wake Up Screaming," but he keeps himself restrained in the other songs. When he sings "Who'll be the next in line?/... Who'll make the same mistakes I made over you?", he even sounds stern, like someone delivering a lecture.

Queens of the Stone Age deliver a solid EP of their rarities, remixes and B-sides in "Stone Age Complications." It's not the best introduction to the band, but definitely a must-have for fans.

Hhmmmm... Aug. 8 2005
By Ferguson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I can only give this, the compilation of various Q.O.T.S.A songs from the split e.p's and b-sides, a four as it seems like a bit of a wasted oppurtunity since it's only 6 songs long and missing crucial ones.

The cover versions here, "who'll be next in line" by The Kinks, "wake up screaming" by Sub Hum Anz and "thee most exhalted potentate of love" are all superb and are all as good as the original songs (finally : someone has actually covered a classic song from those masters of cover versions, The Cramps, that doesn't suck and isn't an embarrasment to the original), "the bronze" is simply one of the best Q.O.T.S.A songs to date and "born 2 hula" also rocks but the remix of "no one ones" is dreadful and pointless. How Josh Homme included that but neglected rare Q.O.T.S.A classics like "spiders and vingeroos" from the split with Kyuss, "these aren't the droids you're looking for" from the split with Beaver and b-sides like "you're so vague" and "never say never" i don't know.

If you haven't got these songs then it's a must-have for "the bronze" and the 3 fantastic cover versions but i'd pay the extra to get the original ep's, personally, to get all their songs.

Previously Released Goodness April 25 2004
By Derek - Published on
Format: Audio CD
These songs go back as far as 1998, and any big fan will have them on singles already, but for someone new this is a great way to see what the queens record when they aren't making an album. They pick great covers, and these are two of the strongest Queens originals out there, especially the Born to Hula re-recording. It's probably the best "Rated R"-era song in my opinion. The remix of No One Knows, though? Eh.
Worth listening to for sure.

When this album came out it was such a great b-side disc. This is where I discovered Born to Hula and The Bronze- 2 of my favs to date I might add. The remaining tracks are great as well. Get it!

Look,I am a Queens of the Stone Age fan.Strange,because this band and Hermano came from Kyuss and i'm not a huge Kyuss fan.This is what it is:rarities and out takes from previous material.I like it,but i like their music.
