5.0 out of 5 stars It puts the lotion in the basket!!! I love the lyrics., August 17, 2007
This review is from: Era Vulgaris (Audio CD)
This album is beginning to end a sonic work of art. I don't think I would call it a concept album, but it certainly has a cohesive feel that makes listening to it end too soon. Maybe it's a hint of classic progressive rock attitude. At the conclusion of this CD...I hit play again. I have liked QOTSA albums before, but I don't remember being as addicted to anything they have done like this album. There are great guitar parts, soulful singing by Josh Homme and Mark Lannegan, searing six string solos, layered sound textures, rock solid rhythm/percussion, burning bluesy roots, quirky thoughtful lyrics and melodic growling bass. They threw everything in but the kitchen sink into this amazing sonic brew...buy it and put it on repeat!

Oh yeah-I totally agree--this release is a sonic pièce de résistance. The sheer genius of this creation is realized only after, and upon, several listens. The artistic phrasing is textured & nuanced perfectly--simply put: it is sublime.

I am so very hip to what you are sayin', Brotha! Repeated listenings will just promote even more repeated listenings.
