Interesting Piece of rock
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 29/05/2013 09:04:47
This is Qotsa 4th Studio Album with the title based on the mosqito song from past record "Song for the deaf". It good some great tracks more i would say its more dreamy and not as heavy as the past Qotsa records. It grows everytime you listen to it.

This is not following from "songs" but it is still QOTSA.
Right from the start this album grabs you, albeit "lullaby" does lead you into a false sense of security :) from then on you are on a rollercoaster ride.
As I say, this is not "songs", but is equally as good.
Much better than Era Vulgaris imo.

A bit of a grower.

With Nick Oliveri (bassist) booted out over personal issues, Dave Grohl going back to the Foos, only Josh Homme remains the original member from the last album (with a little appearance from Mark Lanegan). People expecting 'Songs for the Deaf 2' were hugely disappointed but that shouldn't reflect badly on this album. Apart from the strange opener 'Lullaby', tracks 2-8 are fantastic with 'Medication', '...Insane' and 'Little Sister' being the lead runners. Things get a little bland in the last third of the album with only 'Broken Box' and the wonderful '...Goodbye' keeping things above par. Take your time with this album.

Before heading into the studio in early 2004 to record the fourth Queens of the Stone Age album, Lullabies to Paralyze, the band's guitarist/vocalist/chief songwriter, Josh Homme, kicked out bassist Nick Oliveri for undisclosed reasons. Since Homme and Oliveri were longtime collaborators, dating back to the 1990 formation of their previous band, Kyuss, this could have been a cause for concern, but QOTSA is not an ordinary band, so ordinary rules do not apply. Lullabies lacks the manic metallic flourishes of their earlier work, and the gonzo humor and gimmicks, such as the radio DJ banter on Deaf, are gone ¿ but it all sounds like an assured, natural progression from the tightly wound, relentless Songs for the Deaf. That album contained genuine crossover pop tunes in "No One Knows" and "Go With the Flow," songs that retained QOTSA's fuzzy, heavy neo-psychedelic hard rock and were channeled through an irresistible melodic filter that gave the music a serious sexiness that was nearly as foreign to the band as the undeniable pop hooks. Homme has pulled off a surprise of a similar magnitude on Lullabies to Paralyze ¿ he doesn't walk away from these breakthroughs but marries them to the widescreen art rock of R and dark, foreboding metal of Kyuss, resulting in a rich, late-night cinematic masterpiece. One of the reasons QOTSA have always been considered a musician's band is that they are masters of mood, either sustaining tension over the course of a six-minute epic or ratcheting up excitement in the course of a two-minute blast, all while using a familiar palette of warm, fuzz-toned guitars, ghostly harmonies, and minor-key melodies.

As the title says, this album is possibly the most underrated in the collection. It has a more psychidellic feel than the rest of the albums, but this plays to the album's strengths in songs like "Everybody Knows You're Insane", "In My Head" and especially in "Someone's In The Wolf", which when heard live will blow your mind. Don't be a fan boy to Songs for the Deaf without listening to this one first, as it is a nice departure from QOTSA's sound which would return in Era Vulgaris. My favourite will always be "Rated R", but my favourite tracks lie in this album!

Best QOTSA album!!

This is the best Queens Of The Stone Age album. I personally think it's better than Songs For The Deaf. I agree with the guy who mentions "Everybody Knows That Your Insane" as in a "league of its own" it's a brilliant song, as is Little Sister, In My Head and Medication, infact I don't think there's a bad song on the album!!

It is very hard to produce a follow up to an album as good as Songs for the deaf. Queens of the stone age have not quite done it although this album shows brilliance in the first half it goes steeply downhill from track 7 Litle Sister. Best tracks Burn the Witch, Everybody Knows Your Insane and Tangled up in Plaid. All in all not as good as SFTD but worth a buy.

immense album , better than songs for the deaf, every one should stop blowing oliveri's trumpet. FRom the go you know its going into a different direction but you cannot name one song that is not worthy. "everybody knows that your insane " is in a league of its own and the other songs are pretty damn good to . BUY THIS ALBUM!

Alternately average and brilliant

Although not as good as Songs For the Deaf, there are a few songs on here that better what has come before such as I Never Came and Little Sister.

Different again from the rock gods

Not as good as songs for the deaf but definately worthwhile investing in this little gem. Totally different theme to the other albums again. 'Burn the witch' is almost certainly up there with their best efforts. 'I never came', 'This lullaby' and ' Long slow goodbye' are worthy of your purchase alone!
