Fuzzed out sexy Stoner Rock
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 29/05/2013 09:12:26
this rock n roll pearl is Qotsa second studio album,
Oh man what a record,all the way from the Joshua Tree into my ears. With deep songs like "I Think i lost my headache" and party mode song "Feel Good Summer Hit" wich is based on the lead Singer Josh Homme drug experience one windy night walking to his hotell from, a party back in the Kyuss days. and ofcourse the awesome song "The lost art of keeping secrets" This is a must in your rock record collection /Luca Blanca

QOTSA: Quite Original To Strike Again
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/11/2011 11:09:52
another great album with a lot of noisy guitars, great rythms and quite explicit lyrics (rated R). it's not garage rock, it's not (heavy) metal, it's not grunge, .... it's queens of the stone age and as such very original.
also more 'adult' (i.e. grown up) than josh hommes' other band eagles of death metal, where adolescent fun-rock is the focus. this is serious stuff with the fun-factor tuned down.

Drug and alcohol crazed second album.

Moving clear of the Kyuss sound, QOTSA hit the public with a downright sleaze trip of an album. Hitting off with '...Summer', a song with no other lyrical content other than drugs, (sounding like Nick Oliveri's (bassist) tour bus shopping list) you can tell this ain't going to be an easy ride. 'Lost Art...', 'Auto Pilot' and 'Monster...' are all bona-fide QOTSA classics, and a little Punk-infused 'Quick...' and 'Tension Head' never did anyone any harm while taking the foot off the gas with 'In the Fade' and '...Headache'. A little varying, but never the less, great album.

The second Queens of the Stone Age album, R makes its stoner rock affiliations clear right from the opening track. The lyrics of "Feel Good Hit of the Summer" consist entirely of a one-line list of recreational drugs that Josh Homme rattles off over and over, a gag that gets pretty tiresome by the end of the song (and certainly doesn't need the reprise that follows "In the Fade"). Fortunately, the rest of the material is up to snuff. R is mellower, trippier, and more arranged than its predecessor, making its point through warm fuzz-guitar tones, ethereal harmonies, vibraphones, horns, and even the odd steel drum. That might alienate listeners who have come to expect a crunchier guitar attack, but even though it's not really aggro, R is still far heavier than the garage punk and grunge that inform much of the record. It's still got the vaunted Arizona-desert vibes of Kyuss, but it evokes a more relaxed, spacious, twilight feel, as opposed to a high-noon meltdown. Mark Lanegan and Barrett Martin of the Screaming Trees both appear on multiple tracks, and their band's psychedelic grunge -- in its warmer, less noisy moments -- is actually not a bad point of comparison. Longtime Kyuss fans might be disappointed at the relative lack of heaviness, but R's direction was hinted at on the first QOTSA album, and Homme's experimentation really opens up the band's sound, pointing to exciting new directions for heavy guitar rock in the new millennium.

The title says it all.
I was a little nervous when buying this album as I find some QOTSA stuff a bit weird, but this is my favourite album out of the 3 I bought in the same order (the others being QOTSA - Lullabies to Paralyze and Foo Fighters - There Is Nothing Left to Lose, which are both good albums anyway).
Plus, at the price of £5 it's a bargain!

A band worth believeing in
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 13/04/2008 16:42:20
Not a dud track on it, the album just flows so well. Just shows a band really growing into their music and is a hint of things to come. This is actually their second album the 1st is self titled and is now discontinued (actually better than rated R) but Rated R is a modern classic and at 4.99 a steal!!

A must have for QOTSA fans
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 16/01/2008 20:42:48
This is QOTSA's first and one of thier best albums. It has plenty of variety and with memorable songs it gets better with every listen. This isn't as long as the other albums its short but very sweet indeed. I love every song, my favourates include "The lost art of keeping a secret", "In the fade" and "Better living through chemistry". In my opinion thier albums are the definition of musucal pleasure and should be bought by all fans of alternative music. This is a truly brilliant album and a must have for QOTSA fans.
