Unlike many critics, I think this album is great. I just wish the whole thing was as twisted and punishing as Sick, Sick, Sick and Misfit Love.
I went into this album thinking it was the second worst by Qotsa. but this band keeps surprising me with their consistency over and over again
This album gets alot of hate being queen of the stone age worst album to date. However, in my own subjective opinion, this album has much more charactertics and charm as do their latest record "Villians". Their 2007 record "Era Vulgaris" showcase a more brash and slick side of Josh hommne as the production harkens to some early rock n roll. An enjyoable record that does have some glaring flaws but evens it out with some catchy ass tunes.
Album art is exactly the feeling I get after listening to it.
The first album by the band that I'm kind of iffy about. Sure, there are some bangers and a few good slow songs that I didn't think would work, but the album feels kind of drawn out and boring. It's not even that bad, hell some stuff could be on SFTD and I wouldn't mind, and there sure are the band's infamous chugging, dry riffs, but this album loses me more than it should. The more... 'sexy' lyrics do help it find its own identity though.
