Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.70
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hey'd never again groove like this, with gurgling Teutonic drones swallowing Stooges chords and intercepted radio cross talk."
Spin - 1/99, pp.119-120
7 (out of 10) - "...While there's really nothing in this collection worth trading in those Melvins albums for, it's strangely compelling to hear how Homme and his cohorts killed many an afternoon in a thick THC haze with Can's TAGO MAGO, then worked it into their patented pedal abuse..."
Q - 12/99, pp.126-127
4 Stars (out of 5) - "...deriving maximum power from a sound stripped to its core elements (Homme's bone-hard riffs and mournful vocals and a juggernaut of rhythm section)..."
Kerrang (Magazine) - p.52
"[With] an array of influences as wide-reaching and sprawling as its sound."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.93
3 stars out of 5 -- "Queens Of The Stone Age were edgy, sarcastic and perfect for rock and metal audiences sick of Korn and Disturbed."
Uncut (magazine) - p.91
4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] a belief in timeless, classic riffs and also more toothsome and unswinging structures..."

Instead of trying to recreate the sound of his former band Kyuss, Josh Homme took a new approach to music. He crafted tight hard rock songs that were heavy on melody and light on vocals. While there is still a lot of fuzz coming from the amplifiers, the vocals are softly interwoven among the chords. There's no screaming or rock & roll antics, and the group takes an almost lo-fi attitude to heavy metal -- an interesting combination that produced instant radio gems like "Regular John," the extreme ranges on "Avon," and the smoky, blues-influenced "Walkin' on the Sidewalks." Queens of the Stone Age are creating a new blend of heavy metal that makes it acceptable to produce creative music that doesn't rely on testosterone as the driving force. ~ David Thomas
