View Full Version : Queens of the Stone Age

After a recent discussion of Queens of the Stone Age in the community thread I decided that we needed a place to discuss this band. This band has been one of my favourites for many a year now and I am quite suprised it took me until now to make a thread on them. So basically discuss anything Queens of the Stone Age in here.

I will start the discussion with 'what does everyone think of Lullabies to Paralyse?'. This album reached very mixed results, some saying it was their best to date and some saying it was garbage. I personally thought that it was a good album but not as good as there others.


Here are some songs for those who haven't heard Queens of the Stone Age:
Little Sister (http://s31.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=300DMD75PJDPY0O79VMDLMZ7PA)
Gonna Leave You (http://s31.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=32MRY2AV8FVFA0QS4WTMAT0HRR)
You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar But I Feel Like A Millionaire (http://s31.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0J2FVCETEW6PE11VSIDPR769BI)
When the links run out feel free to point this out to me and I will re-upload them.

I loved Songs for the Deaf, but I think that the new album suffers from the lack of Dave Grohl an Nick Oliveri on it. The drumming and bassing in a few of the songs actually carried it even though it was a great album. This one is good but not as good. Songs for the Daf would definately be in the top ten albums for me of the 00's.

Their Self Titled is their master piece so far for myself, but the other albums are all really good too.

I quite like Lullabies.

I like QOTSA, but LTP talled off and the second half of the album is quite poor. The first half is outstanding. LTP is not as good as SFTD or the self-titled album. The self-titled is my favourite album just ahead of SFTD. I think Rated R is an ok album and is in my opinion their worst album.

I am a huge fan of them! I like SFTD the most followed by S/T then Rated R then LTP. But I like all there CD's and I think they are better then Kyuss. And if you like them check out some other stoner rock bands like Fu Manchu, and Fireball Ministry, both kick major ***!

Second time, here in my home town luxembourg, I was first at the gate. RIGHT THERE up front.. caught josh's water bottle :)
Really really great band.. was increddible.. shame they didn't play my fav "first it giveth".. but wow.. such a huge band in a venue with 100? 150? people max... was best concert I've been too.. And I've seen Black sabbath last month ;)..

QUOTSA :) :) :) :) :)

definitely. i loved josh on songs for the deaf, but without nick and dave, the only thing that the new album has going for it is mark lanigan. i think josh tried to go to heavy on the new album, ditched his solos, and basically just started writing bad music (in my opinion). i also agree that the drums especially carried SFTD, songs like song for the dead wouldnt have been the same without dave grohl, and nick oliveri could always be counted on to have interesting bass lines, something that the new guy has a problem with. its a shame mark lanigan is still stuck in this band because hes a ridiculously talented guitarist and singer.

Lanegan.

Oh, and don't forget other talented musicians who played on the record like Alain Johannes, Chris Goss, Billy Gibbons, etc. The record has far more "going for it" then it could with Dave "the most overrated musician alive" Grohl playing the drum parts that Josh wrote for him.

i think josh tried to go to heavy on the new album,
Thats funny because most of the songs are the album are 10x more mellow than things they've done before.

ditched his solos,
At least 85% of the album has solos on it. Even the singles that get radio play. And the other 15% are either the finale song or songs less than 2 minutes. I'm starting to think you haven't even listened to the album.

songs like song for the dead wouldnt have been the same without dave grohl,
Funny, they played it with Joey Castillo and it sounded just fine. Dave Grohl did nothing for the band they couldn't do themselves, period.

and nick oliveri could always be counted on to have interesting bass lines, something that the new guy has a problem with.
That's an opinion that I'd easily argue. If anything, the basslines on this record are less repetitive and more melodic.

its a shame mark lanigan is still stuck in this band because hes a ridiculously talented guitarist and singer.
It's a shame you don't know what you're talking about.

a) Mark isn't "stuck" in the band. He chooses every time he plays with them.

b) Mark LANEGAN (notice the spelling) doesn't play guitar.

c) Shut up.

Also, Nick was kicked out because he's too much to handle while on tour. Josh is a rowdy guy himself but Nick is a drug fiend to the point where it became a problem for Josh. They still talk and are still friends. Frankly I wouldn't be surprised if Oliveri played on their next record.

That's weird, I prefer the second half. You silly pear.

My opinion on LTP is this: when I listen to something like Medication or Tangled Up In Plaid, it just sounds, to me, like other stuff they've done. It's the atypical (although still good) Queens formula. Tracks like Broken Box or You've Got a Killer Scene There Man is exactly what I expected from the new album--something new. Something where they take their distinct formula but apply it to a different approach and a different sound.

I unfortunately hear alot of people talk shit about LTP, and unfortunately, 90% of the time, it's because they expected SFTD part 2.

I've determined that most of these people only got into Queens through SFTD, and thus think that Queens may have just been a steady band who fired somebody.

What they don't get is this: every album, they do something different, but they do it in their own way.

Every album is a new crew. Dave Grohl wasn't expected to be on LTP. Stop bringing him up. Just like Alfredo Hernandez wasn't on Rated R, and Gene Trautman wasn't on SFTD. They change the lineup both for recording and touring on pretty much every album. The ONLY constants up to now have been Josh and Nick. Every album has it's own character, it's own vibe, and it's own sound.

When people say things like "well, the new album would have sounded better with Dave Grohl or Nick Oliveri playing on it, it's not the same" it sounds retarded.

WHO THE FUCK WANTS THE SAME ALBUM OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

I wouldn't have minded a second part of that gem, to be honest. But in my opinion, after 'I never came', it goes downhill. The songs get longer, slower and more repetitive. I've had other people yell at me for saying the second half is much worse, but it's just not my thing, not enough melody.

And I would have liked Oliveri on it, because I loved his clean vocals on songs like auto pilot and Another Love song. I also liked his bass lines, so nyah. :p

On another note, is the new bassist the old second guitarist? and do they still have two guitarists live?

They tend to switch instruments for different songs, as they are generally all multi-instrumental. For example, Alain Johannes generally plays bass for them on tour (and on the album) but he may switch to guitar on "In My Head" (since he wrote it). Josh always plays bass on "Burn the Witch."

They do play with two (or more) guitarists live. On this tour it's been Josh (as always) and Troy Van Leeuwen (formerly of APC).

Well I am a big fan of Qotsa as I have been alot LTP is good enough not the best but still good I like it I know alot do not like it because Nick is not on it (cmon he didnt contribute massive amounts to that band)

My favourite album at the moment is SFTD I dont know the song titles though because my cd broke and I got it for free off the guy because the case was stolen in the shop all I got was the disc and now that broke so now I have the ALBW.

QOTSA is right up there on my list of all time favorites. I saw them live on may 20th, they were absolutely amazing (as were the Eagles of Death metal). I think the new record is great, and unlike most, I love both halves. My favourite song off it is probably Tangled Up In Plaid. I've followed them pretty much their whole career, and will probably see them again when they tour with NIN.

The thing I love about the band is, every album is different. For example, "R" is kind of trippy and weird, more experimental I guess you could say, with songs like Better Living Through Chemistry. It's a little more mellow than the others. With SFTD, it's the head-banging, balls to the wall, fast tempo rock-a-thon (with the exception of Mosquito Song, of course). Then there's Lullabies to Paralyze, which reaches a happy middle ground, and is possibly the most accessible of the 4 (I dont have the self titled album). Although it doesnt quite have the drive and energy (mostly due to the loss of Nick), Josh shows some of the best songwriting and vocals of his career. Since all the albums have a different mood and feel, Queens ensures that you won't get bored of their sounds, and concerts will continue to be varied and exciting. I can't wait for when they finally come to Houston. Incidentally, my favorite track off LTP is Tangled Up In Plaid (because the SNL performance of Little Sister with WIll Ferrell on cowbell doesnt count).

There's a video for 'Someone's in the Wolf'? That would grant them like no success. My favourite song off LTP, but I don't think it as a single would do very well.

What are you talking about, I always bring up their self-titled one. It's without a doubt their best album too (and without Nick Olivieri, for those who claim he was a constant together with Josh, he wasn't. Josh wrote and played everything on the self-titled (aside from the drum lines obviously).

You Can't Quit Me Baby is the best QOTSA song ever. :)

I'd rate their albums

Self-titled
Lullabies to Paralyze
Kyuss/QOTSA split
Songs for the Deaf
Rated R

I like QOTSA without Nick better, I don't like his song-writing or playing all that much.

At first I didn't think much of the new album

but to be honest it's essential if your a true fan :)

Although it isn't their best by any stretch, it definately has some of the greatest moments on it

This Blood Is Love and Broken Box, awesome songs, although every song on that album is pretty much spot on

Still...Songs for the deaf ;) is still no.1 rock album in the last 10 years, nearly perfect

Rated R was like a mixed bag, very experimental, some great ideas, but lacking some depth, although Lost Art was an awesome, awesome song!! and In The Fade was pretty beautiful

Their self-titled is the 2nd best in my opinion, purely rock driven, just guitars, drums and bass :)

The drumming is heavy as hell and very reminiscent of some Kyuss stuff (Since Alfredo used to play in Kyuss ;))

Well, I think LTP is Queen's most complete album to date and every track is a killer although I hear a lot of people saying that the second half of the album, (past Little Sister), drags on a bit. I have to disagree. It's a complete change in mood and it gets darker but this is only comparing to the first 7 tracks which are the catchiest things ever.

Didn't Josh kick him out because he suspected that Nick physically abused his girlfriend?

i was told nick and josh were gay and that they had a marital tiff and josh kicked nick out.

It was in an interview with Zane Lowe, Josh said he found out that Nick was beating on his girlfriend (Nick's not Josh's) and said that's past music or something

At first, I didnt like LTP as much as Rated R or Songs for the deaf. However, after a few listens, I really like the album.

Self titled and Songs for the Deaf are the only albums that do something for me.

ive bought every album when it was first released. Self Titled, Rated R, and Songs for the Deaf are all fantastic in their own ways, though im not much of a fan of Lullabies to Paralyze. i just dont like that a lot of the songs on that album sound like they were only made to try and be singles, none of the other albums have songs like that.

My mate has downloaded a Big Day Out video 2003 from when QOTSA were at their peak, and also a Kyuss vid from the bizarre festival in 1994 :)

He's putting them onto a disc for me later, can't wait :p

Aside from "In my head" (which is an older song featured on Desert Sessions 9 & 10 and re-recorded for LTP) and "Little Sister" (which is just a sub-par song, anyway) I don't hear any tracks like that.

I don't understand what makes a song "try to be a single."

I swear people think up the most retarded reasons to follow the popular opinion on LTP.

none of the other albums have songs like that.

None of the other albums have songs that fit in the "single" category? Nice try.

I also disagree with you there and I think that Songs For The Deaf has more songs like that. I also think that the songs on Lullabies to Paralyze fit perfectly together and make a great atmosphere. The album has really grown on me in latter weeks and I might even go as far as to say it is their masterpiece.

Great band. Ang great albums.

i dont really think they were made to be singles in a complete sense, it just seems like theyre missing something that the older songs had. i guess the older songs had more parts to them and the newer ones kind of feel to me like they were just thrown together, is what i mean by single style.
dont get me wrong il give LTP a good listen every now and then, there are a few good songs on there, i just dont like it as much as their other albums.
i especially dislike the last few songs on LTP, namely Skin on Skin and Youve Got A Killer Scene There Man. imo they leave the album end on a bad note.
Long Slow Goodbye is a good song, but it practically never ends. good regardless.

For those who haven't seen the video for Everybody Know That You're Insane you can see it at that website. Go into Media and then click on 'This Is Some Crazy Shit'. IMO it is a great song and a hilarious video

The first one's the best and the latest one the worst. They're all good though.

If you like the first albums then you should check out The Bronze from the EP split with Beaver. The Bronze is the best song with QOTSA, it's just that simple.

Desert Sessions, Kyuss, Eagles of Death Metal, everything that Joshua Homme touches becomes good music.

But you should all listen to they're first two albums + the song The Bronze I promise you it's worth it.

Now I'm kinda a QOTSA newbie but a friend told me her take on them. It wasn't very flattering towards Josh. So my question is, is he a control freak? Doesn't change the music for me, I'm just curious.

Hi!

The Queens Of The Stone Age are one of my favourite bands.
They sound absolutely innovative and I can always find new finenesses and melodies in their records.
This year in June I saw them in Berlin and that was the best concert I've ever been. I've never heard such great improvisations and also I've never seen so much stoned people like there. :D

Thanks for your attention

Rapp Scallion

P.S. Sorry for my bad English

They should call it Videos for the blind :lol:


Tangled up in plaid is my favorite song off of lullabies at the moment.

I still don't have Lullabies, but I listened to it online and didn't really like it all that much.

I definately agree with the name Videos for the Blind. Seriously, it would be awesome. My favourite song off Lullabies... recently has been Broken Box.

I agree with the it being able to grow on you, it took about three full listens through for it to happen to me, but now it is one of my favourite albums.

I've ordered Lullabies to Paralyze, hasnt arrived yet, I admit that I only own 1 other qotsa album SFTD(which is awesome) but I have heard some of their older songs and think they're kool, also seem them live and were fantastic! 1 of the best bands i've seen live. im sure their newest album wont disappoint me even with the absence of dave grohl and Nick. Their drummer can play all the qotsa songs just as well as grohl can and the new bassist, well hes a bassist, no offence to bassists but most can be replaced without anyone noticing any difference. I think Nick was on of those bassists.

is it even a QOTSA song?

The Bronze is on Stone Age Complications, and I think it was previously released on another album that Queens of the Stone Age did with Beaver.

Lullabies To Paralyze has been really growning on me recently, I didn't like it much at all to being with.

Everyone should check out the video to Someone's in the Wolf, its very cool (http://mms.sonix.de/universal/rock/queensofthestoneage_someones_300.wmv).

Does anybody know why the QOTSA self titled album is so expensive on half.com? It's the same way for Masters of Reality's "Sunrise on the Sufferbus" and it's ridiculous.

Also, does anybody know which songs it is actually Josh soloing on? Namely, "Song for the Dead" and "God Is On the Radio." Would I be correct in assuming that Troy has basically taken over as the lead guitarist in the band? I know that Josh plays the solos on "Little Sister" and "Everybody Knows You Are Insane," but what about the others?

I hope this thread survives, it's the 2nd or 3rd QOTSA thread. None of them seem to survive, which is odd, because QOTSA is teh ****.

It's because they don't produce it anymore so it's rare.

I was watching the DVD the other day (man, so sweet) and I was wondering if there was anywhere I could procure me a MP3 of The Fun Machine Took A Sh*t and Died?

I know it was exclusively vinyl released, but maybe it leaked or something?

You'd need a copy of the vinyl, and a way to get it onto your computer.

Oh well, I'll just figure out a way to get it from the DVD

That is a good song, if you ever get it, you should send it to me.
