Queens of the Stone Age
Queens of the Stone Age
Style: Stoner Metal / Stoner Rock
Release date: 7 March, 2011
Playing time: 60:11

Do we need yet another re-issue of this classic? Of course we do! It is a classic after all. We do especially need a re-issue when it is supplemented with three bonus tracks that have never been released on album before. All three tracks can be found on two different EP’s though. On top of that the whole lot has been re-mastered from the original tapes.

This might not be Kyuss and it is in my humble opinion not the best Queens of the Stone Age album either, but this is still nearly unbelievably good Stoner Rock and a must buy for any fan of the genre who has not this gem in the collection.
