Having listened to this 9 times, I truly believe its not a good record. It doesn't have many flaws but it has two basic ones: first off, its underwritten and second is that certain tracks are quite longer than they should have been. There are no tracks for me that are true standouts but there are good ones. Those are If only, you would know, how to handle a rope, mexicola and you can't quit me baby. The rest are not worth one's time in my opinion.

The first step of Kyuss' well groomed younger brother. More rock and less stoner...

None of the band's later material even come close to that sludgy, desert feel of their their debut. It's clear that Homme was still sticking with that stoner feel of Kyuss and I will admit that QOTSA did go on to do better things, but their early material is the stuff I come back to the most. I just love the hypersexual attitude and some of the bizarre, robotic performances on here. It does come off a bit basic, but it's absolutely timeless for me at least. Definitely check out the 2011 ... read more
