    A more straight-ahead release from the group

    Josh Homme & Co.'s third album, Songs For The Deaf, consists primarily of an accessible take on the stoner rock that has been Homme & Nick Oliveri's stock in trade for over 10 years up to this point. There is an engaging radio-style presentation to this album that makes it an interesting listen from start to finish. More of the tendencies to take some instrumental and musical left turns take a backseat on this release, but this is good driving music and probably compares well to the band's first s/t release for that reason. The more oddball QOTSA can be found on Rated R, Era Vulgaris, and the most recent release, Like Clockwork. This is definitely an enjoyable effort and definitely cemented Homme's status as one of the pre-eminent creative forces in rock music.

    Blindsided by this awesome album!

    I've listened to this album several times now after buying it and am glad I finally bought it. The hits from this album are likely 5 years or more old by now, but they still get air time on rock stations where I'm at. However, I usually buy CDs with hits on them just to hear the deeper tracks on the album. And this CD definitely delivers with "First it Giveth" and "The Sky is Fallin'." Those are two really catchy tunes. The rest of the album is solid, though perhaps less memorable, but they do end it with a hidden track that is catchy on it's own, "Mosquito." If you're familiar with the hits "Go with the Flow" and "No one Knows," and enjoyed them, do yourself a favor and checkout the rest of the CD. You'll be glad you did!

    I've avoided this band for a over a decade, due to the mainstream success of this album which I had attributed to their association with Dave Grohl(who I had lost interest in by the time this album came out). Looking back, that was a mistake. I'm now making up for lost time by enjoying all of their music. While this isn't my favorite QotSA album, its worth a spot in your collection if your a fan.

    Loving the band already, I purchased this album not knowing what I was in for besides the hit single. After listening to it, I was amazed on how deep the album really was. Takes you in different directions with different feels. An absolute Brilliant Album and shows the true depth of Queens of the Stone Age. I would recommend to any true fan of rock. 10/10

    One of the top albums of all time! Their other albums are good but fall short but this album is amazing start to finish, minus the song with a bunch of useless cussing in it. No One Knows and Go With the Flow are great as well as Song for the Deaf, with its syncopated middle section. Having Dave Grohl on drums was awesome. He was so much better than he was on Nirvana albums!

    Villains got me to listen to SFTD

    Jumping backwards from the latest Villains to SFTD is a bit jarring, but the evolution of their sound demonstrated by these 2 time points is what makes QOTSA and their music so fascinating. SFTD is a record of its time, as is Villians. And I enjoy them both. Can't wait to explore their other music.

    Killer rock record with some tasty guitar playing

    Queens of the Stone Age does a great job of creating a rock sound that's fresh yet familiar. The record has a great variety of energy levels and the ordering of the tracks gives the record a great pacing. The guitar playing, while rarely flashy, has a lot of fun, tasteful, and creative moments. The vocal style works well for their sound!

    This is probably the album that put QOTSA on the radar for a lot of people. And for good reason. Its some of Josh Homme's best. Plus, Dave Grohl on drums, great production. It's sort of a concept record that is meant to be a road trip. A great rock record that was made at a time when a lot of other "rock bands" were making garbage. Fantastic record.
