Biography

Queens of the Stone Age
By Anthony Bourdain

It came from the desert.

What “it” was, exactly, is still a matter of debate. Are Queens of the Stone Age a band? An association? A concept? The intermittent issue of an unhinged Carlo Von Sexron? The toxic byproduct of other bands? A variously shrinking and expanding group of friends and likeminded visitors? Or a ... Read more in Amazon's Queens Of The Stone Age Store

Product Description

One of Rolling Stone's top 100 albums of the decade, Rated R from Queens Of The Stone Age marks its 10th anniversary with the expanded, two-CD Rated R - Deluxe Edition (Interscope/UMe). Added to the original album is a second disc with six B-sides and the band's memorable summer 2000 Reading Festival concert--featuring nine previously unreleased songs, including live versions of Rated R's "Feel Good Hit Of The Summer," "The Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret," "Better Living Through Chemistry" and "Quick And To The Pointless." The B-sides are "Ode To Clarissa"; "You're So Vague," a spoof of Carly Simon's "You're So Vain"; covers of Romeo Void's "Never Say Never" and the Kinks' "Who'll Be The Next In Line"; a live version of the album's "Monsters In The Parasol"; and a re-recording of "Born To Hula," an early QOTSA song. The other Reading Festival tracks are concert takes on "Ode To Clarissa," three songs from the band's debut album ("Regular John," "Avon" and "You Can't Quit Me, Baby"), and "Millionaire," a song originally from Josh Homme side project Desert Sessions.

Review

"the best, most important rock album for years...No gimmicks, no postmodern guilt-trip bullshit, just punk rock space-cadet genius, Queens Of The Stone Age's major label debut compromises nothing but still has mass appeal. The new rock royalty have come to claim their throne. Do not miss out on this." -- NME, September 2000

"In 10 years from now you'll still be playing this awesome album, and that's what really counts." -- Kerrang (KKKKK)

A must buy for Queens of the Stone Age fans.

Rated R is such an amazing c.d. The new deluxe edition is a lot better with live tracks and bonus music on the second disc.

The live stuff is great too, and has a couple really good songs off their first album.

In recent years, I've come to my senses and have resisted blindly buying neatly-packaged reissues of albums I already own. Remastering, particularly with albums that aren't very old, often consists of compressing the original album's dynamics and giving it a volume boost so it'll sound good on an iPod rather than a proper hi-fi. Also, in many cases, the bonus material isn't great enough to justify buying the album a second time. My love for Rated R, however, made me ignore my usual rules and take the double-dip.

As thrilled as I am to have the five b-sides, the live Reading Festival tracks are fairly average in terms of sound quality and performance. They're not bad, but I'll be surprised if I find myself really going out of my way to listen to them down the road. In fact, I kind of wish they had just thrown the b-sides at the end of disc one and released this as a cheaper single disc package. As it stands, it comes off like they were stretching to fill a disc up. Additionally, the CD booklet is basically just a slightly altered (and uglier) variation of the original one. No new essays or photos. Pretty lazy. Hey, at least the Rated X vinyl edition has a bunch of porn pics in the gatefold. QOTSA have so many great rarities and non-album tracks that I really wish they would just compile all of those tracks (as many bootleggers have) into one tidy package rather than scattering them across expanded editions of albums like this. That would be a pretty irresistible set.

Queens of the Stone Age arose in the 1990s out of desert storm created by the ashes of metal gods Kyuss, a band who featured both the dynamic presence of lead singer/guitarist Josh Homme and the wizard bearded bass fiend Nick Oliveri (if you have never heard "Gardenia" seek it out now). The special thing about QOTSA is that they are a unpredictable, super intelligent hard rock band who defy hard rock clichés. Homme maybe riff obsessed but they are classic riffs with interesting twists and turns, even on something as basic as the greatest steal of German "ommpah" music ever on the brilliant "No one knows". What other band could generate a debate currently raging on the Amazon music forum at the moment whether "Josh Homme is the sexiest musician alive"? Frankly I am rather agnostic about the point but its further proof that QOTSA have a cool credibility and remain the US's most vibrant heavy rock band not least of all in the ability to attract stellar "side musicians" like Dave Grohl and Mark Lanagan.

What a treat then to have their best album released (it was of course voted as the NME writers' album of the year in 2000) in this deluxe edition containing in addition a blistering performance from the Reading festival in 2000 and some wonderful curiosities including a sort of a cover of Carly Simon's "Your so vain" and a nice version of Romeo Void's new wave classic, "Never Say Never". It is the Rated Rx however that is the star of the show. In the ten years since its release it has aged wonderfully. Is there a better album opener on any stoner record than the stuttering "Feel good hit of the summer"?

Rated R is such an amazing c.d. The new deluxe edition is a lot better with live tracks and bonus music on the second disc. If you are a fan of QOTSA and have not listened to their earlier work then this is a must have. Also get the first self titled c.d. cause it is my fave of all of them.

This is a very special QOTSA album for me in it's original release form and this 2 CD extended release set is a true QOTSA fans treat and an album that has stood the test of time. They never showed of their range like they did in this one album musical journey. It's got a real experimental vibe with a lundry list of A+ tracks that remain some of QOTSA's biggest hits.

Disc ONE - The original disc in it's original form. That's right, they didn't mess it up and why in the world would you remaster something that was mastered perfectly to start with? I don't get the complaints there??? She's crystal clear and hittin' on all cylinders!!

Disc TWO - If you collect QOTSA tracks as I do, you will appreciate what you have here. I dare say Ode to Clarissa is worth $20 on it's own. The live tracks are great and the sound quality is good enough for me and should be for most people as well. I like to play the track Quick and to the Pointless live where it ends and goes into a little Led Zeppelin and then right into Better Living Through chemistry, man that is so badA$$!!! There's a lot of great stuff here that can be appreciated by the QOTSA fan such as myself.

Born to Hula has been around in so many forms and is AWESOME!! I gotta say though, if you can find a reasonably priced copy of the Stone Aged Complication (EP) used here on Amazon, snatch it up quick because this is where Born to Hula really shines and is worth the price of admission all by itself. I love the Kyuss version as well. Easily one of Homme's best.

This is a really great CD set and I don't get the lack of reviews. For whatever reason QOTSA even though from here seem to have their biggest fanbase overseas.
