Queens of the Stone Age: Rated ‘R’ Updated 05.09.2001, (cos my original version was crap.) Wow. This album is something else. At the moment, with rock music seemingly in the grip of endless Nu Metal and Pop-Punk clones, this is an album that truly pushes the boundaries of the rock...

“Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret”

published 06/09/2003

Pro10 pretty good tracks, mellow

Cons1 not so good track

A few days ago I was talking to Iain (Sohoblack) about CD’s we were currently reviewing, don’t worry mate I won’t name them in case you’re too embarrassed to finish them, but basically they formed a different side to his collection. And that set me thinking, by now you all know how much I love...

ConsNot as heavy as you might expect.

It’s actually “Nicotine,Vallum, Vicadin, Marijuana, Ecstacy and Alcohol... C-C-C-Cocaine” but that wouldn’t fit into a Ciao title. Once apon a time there was a band called “Kyuss” and the best way to describe it is “Stoner-Rock”. With the title of...

“Rated R - Great”

published 20/10/2000

ProMusically brilliant.

ConsMight not suit metal fans who don't see good music...

I have to say firstly that this is probably the best album that I have discovered all year. I think that it has aspects that can appeal to rock, punk and metal fans, well seeing as I have got most of my friends with differing music tastes to like and many to buy the album I feel I can say this...

[i]Rated R[/i] is the second album from rock band Queens of the Stone Age, released in 2000. Prior to this album, the band hadn't received a great deal of mainstream success with their eponymous debut. Essentially, this album would greatly help the band achieve heavy popularity due to their three...

“Monster in my parasol!”

published 16/01/2004

ProNot just your average rock CD.

ConsLast song drags on for 8 mins 40secs.

If you need an album to clear the demons from your troubled mind then this is the album for you. When I first listened to this album I could not believe the stunning originality of all the tracks. You won't find another band that sounds anything remotely like The Queens of the Stone Age. From...

“Rated "Reasonable"”

published 02/10/2000

ProHypnotic grooves

ConsMay disappoint those in search of heavy metal.

There are a handful of magazines that would like you to believe that this album is the new Nevermind. When are they going to realise that there isn't going to be "a new Nevermind"? That album marked a cultural shift and brought a genre to mainstream attention. Expecting the same of Rated R is...

‘Rated R’ has got all you need: the inlay warns the listener with notifications for each song: contains paranoid delusions, explicit sexual content, violence etc. etc. etc. The images are cool too; they seem to have been taken from films like Pulp Fiction, Trainspotting etc., but with...

“Stoner rock -or is it”

published 21/02/2001

ProAn album for all

ConsPerhaps the "double cd" selling point is a bit of ...

There are few good stoner rock bands on the scene at the moment, QOTSA bring a new original brath of fresh air to the genre. Their sound is unlike other bands in the genre and combine a range of different sounds on the album. The first track was released as a single and is probably the best song...

“Rated 'Great'”

published 05/09/2000

ProSimply a great rock album

ConsNone.

Since Kyuss disintegrated in the mid 90s, I’ve waited to see what Josh Homme would come up with next. It’s been worth the wait. The hype surrounding ‘Rated ‘R’’ has been immense, and, for once, this record definitely lives up to the hype. Opening track ‘Feel Good Hit Of The Summer’ is a...
