Many people have complained that Nick Oliveri leaving the band was a bad idea and that QOTSA now sound like they all had their testicles cut off, but I think they still sound good because they jumped off to a new sound. This is the band's darkest album (even darker than Songs For the Deaf) and it's easy to see why with the more creepy song titles lying in the tracklisting. If you don't have this album and liked the band's earlier work, but got disappointed from hearing the singles "In My Head" and "Long Slow Goodbye" get played to death, don't worry, this still would be an enjoyable album for you. Not only does "Little Sister" reflect on old school QOTSA and "Burn the Witch" show a good side to the band's change, but the best song on the album is easily "You Got a Killer Scene There, Man...", consisting of really smooth blues sounding music, a good dose of lyrics, and a catchy chorus of moans. A must buy for the fans of radio rock, even though you'll see a Parental Advisory warning on the cover.
