Product Description

Queens of the Stone Age are back with their most groundbreaking work to date,' Lullabies To Paralyze.' Their new offering is a powerful, sonic, ride that further demonstrates how relevant this band is to today's music scene. Joined by ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, Seattle's finest, Mark Lanegan and a few other surprise guests. Interscope. 2005.

Amazon.com

Nick Oliveri may have departed, taking his naked bass playing skills with him, but Queens of the Stone Age remains in good hands with co-founder Josh Homme. Putting extracurricular projects like Eagles of Death Metal and the Desert Sessions briefly on hold, the restless front man keeps things dependably loud and sludgy on the group's third album. Monster riffs, choppy rhythms, explosive melodies, and, yes, even a generous serving of cowbell, propel standout songs like "Medication" and "Little Sister" on the follow-up to 2002's breakthrough Songs for the Deaf. Friends also lend a hand. ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons shreds through the reverberating "Burn The Witch," while Garbage's Shirley Manson and the Distillers' Brody Dalle join Homme for a tantalizing threesome on "You Got A Killer Scene." -- Aidin Vaziri

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 22, 2005
Format: Audio CD
The last album by the Queens of the Stone Age was "Songs for the Deaf," a frenetic collection of the hardest kind of rock. It was a thrilling, visceral experience, not one soon forgotten. Then nude bassist Nick Oliveri departed from the band, taking the wilder edge of the band with him. Oh, what would become of the Queens of the Stone Age?

Well, if "Lullabies to Paralyze" is any indication, then they are doing fine. This album relies on Josh Homme, and it's stripped down to... well, not down to the bare bones, but some very strong, lean sinew. The albums opens with a little acoustic ballad, "Lullaby," which starts things off on a strong footing.

From there on, things get stranger -- fast paced songs that just keep speeding up, ominous buildups, and nightmarish undertones.There are moments of quieter catchiness -- "Little Sister" seems perfect for the album's first single. And a few tracks feel a bit like filler. But overall, "Lullabies" is very much in the flavour of the Queens' second album, "Rated R." Only darker and somehow more whimsical.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Josh Homme gets to rule in this one. Truth be told, he ruled all through the Desert Sessions, Kyuss, and now he sits in the middle of the Queens of the Stone Age, like a sinister-but-not-evil mastermind. Oliveri's manic style and gimmicks are gone, and in their place is steady, dark rock'n'roll that takes strange and unexpected twists.

It's not a concept album, but it feels that way -- the mood gets generally creepier as "Lullabies" goes on. Fuzzy guitars, dark metallic riffs, and eerie harmonies get a few unusual flourishes, such as that broken music box. And Homme's vocals blend into the songs like another instrument -- great stuff.

Whoever was concerned what a post-Oliveri "QOTSA" would sound like need fear no more: the future is here and it's solid. There is a deceptive "easy" quality to the work, but trust me it is deceptive. Repeated listenings of "Lullabies" reveal a growing "adult" quality to the Queens work, but the intensity that attracted so many fans is still at work here and Homme and Company give everything they have to the project with the ensuing result being: one of the best rock albums to come out this year. (Granted, the year is still young, but my comment about "Lullabies" will be just as valid come December.)

Even more, unlike other "QOTSA" that held (in my humble opinion) a few misses as well as hits, there isn't a single bad moment on "Lullabies."

Although everyone is saying this isn't a concept album, "Lullabies to Paralyze" has a strong feeling all the way through it that make it nearly impossible not to want to listen to the entire thing. Over and over. A+ Effort!

This album is great. It grows on you the more you listen to it. In my opinion, it's better than Songs for the Deaf, and much much better than R (which I thought only had a few good songs). This album however is a great overall album - good songs the whole way through. Especially tracks like 'Everybody Knows That You Are Insane', 'I Never Came', 'Medication', and 'Someones In The Wolf' for which there's a film clip on the bonus dvd (in Australia). I think this album is a little darker and more melodic, which is a good thing in my book. It's also sounds more like their classic self-titled album (I need to listen to this new one a bit more before saying it's better than their first album, as it one of my all-time favourites). The absense of Nick Oliveri seems it will now prove what Kyuss fans have known all along that Josh is a very talented musician, as the first QOTSA album also proved (I'm not saying that Nick isn't very talented himself).

I've been a fan of Josh Homme since his days as the guitarist for Kyuss. I had the pleasure of seeing Queens at a hole in the wall tavern in Sacramento CA for the release of their first album. It was one of the best shows I've ever seen and I've been a devoted fan since. This band is amazing. It is the defining sound of what rock n roll should be. Listening to this record makes me feel like it is ok that I missed the legends such as zeppelin,the doors, black sabbath, and the kinks. Josh and QOTSA have become a modern day rock giant for all to enjoy. Do yourself a favor and buy this record and listen to it as loud as you possibly can. This is the new standard by which all others shall be judged.

I'll be honest: when I heard "Little Sister" a few weeks ago, I was less than impressed. I was fairly apprehensive that QOTSA were going to take the low road and produce a substandard record to satisfy their pocketbooks.

Not the case. The band sounds better than ever, even without Nick Oliveri. Some of the grit and off-the-wall strangeness is gone, and that's probably because they don't have Nick to open this album like he did on "Songs For the Deaf." However, what it lacks in rawness is made up for in creativity. The songs are driving and unmistakeably QOTSA. In an industry where these guys were once the exception, and then the norm, they've proven themselves once more to be a step above the rest.

"Little Sister" is my least favorite song on the CD. Songs like "Everybody Knows That You're Insane" are edgy and stay with you. The "Wolf" (not sure of the exact title) song trails off, descends into some surreal noises, and comes blazing back for a finale, staying true to the QOTSA roots.

All in all, a great album that won't leave my CD player for quite some time.
