Always liked Josh Homme, and Queens and Kyuss and his thing with Grohl and J.P.J., "Them Vultures What Weren't Straight" (Grohl even played with "Queens" for a while I think), and even recently dug something new to me, Josh with Eagles Of Death Metal. The two things I appreciate most about the man are a: his resolve and longevity... he broke into the music business as a teenager, has never looked back, has played with EVERYBODY, and is today quietly one of the most influential writers, performers and producers in rock music, and b: his seemingly effortless ability to write interesting, timely, thought-provoking songs....... and still mercilessly beat the living s*** out of his guitar!
Yes, I like it loud, and this DVD is really kind of a perfect storm for me. It is a study (a VERY successful one) on what electric guitars and basses (and they're all detuned... it's what all the kids are doing) can sound like given the proper amplification and the proper accompaniment of a ridiculously huge powerhouse drummer. This concert film is big, ugly, loud and scary!... And if you like Petulia Clarke... you're gonna freakin' HATE it!
Still interested? Cheers, all!

(Band audio commentary commentary available for bonus tracks)
So first of all, you will notice that the DVD has 6 more songs, and that's not including the bonus features. That's OK. While I wish there were two CDs so you get the whole thing on audio, it's still a darn fine live album. No Nick? No problem. As much as I love the Nick era of Queens, this live album still smokes. Normally, I don't give a toss for Queens without Nick, but I do own and love this. Yeah, there's tunes that I miss. Yeah, I miss his screaming. But the album makes up for it in pure tunage. (Nick's in some of the bonus materials anyways.)
There's a great mix of tunes from all the Queens albums, with a heavy leaning on Songs For The Deaf. There's even a couple Desert Sessions tune and an unreleased one.
This is one awesome set, and great value for the money. It's one I play at home, in the car, on the big stereo and on the earphones. Sound and video quality are fine. Don't expect a hi-def show from the Queens though. This is sweaty and rough.
My favourite part: Josh Homme gets pissed off at some kid throwing things at him, and berates said kid in front of the crowd a bit. His rant is quite hilarious and not repeatable here!
Lineup: Josh Homme, Joey Castillo, Alain Johannes, Troy Van Leeuwen and Natasha Shneider.
5 stars. Indispensible.
