I just bought the cd from Best Buy today for $10 and wow. It is without a doubt the best rock record in the past five years. I know its old but if you are a fan of hard rock you must pick this up today.

Which one is this? Songs for the Deaf? I got it for $12 (con DVD) and it was okay. There's only three songs on there that I love ("No One Knows", "First It Giveth", and "You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire"--incidentally, the Greatest and Bestest Song Title Ever) and the others are meh. But it's a better meh than most of what else is out there.

I'm gonna disagree and give that to "I Hate Every Bone In Your Body But Mine" by Poison. Now THAT'S a title!

Queens of the Stone Age put out what could have been the best hard rock album since the mid nineties. Too bad they recorded it inside a large tin can.

Compression baaaaaaaaaaad, very, very baaaaaaaaaaad.

I mean, I know there was a 'concept' to the record, that it was supposed to be an hour chunk of 'radio,' but at least give those with decent sound systems a chance to hear the songs sound good instead of taking the concept too far and compressing it before it ever gets played by a radio station (who will, of course, further compress the shit out of it).

The Perfect Circle and Tool albums that came out two or three years ago had the same problem. "Our shit won't be played on radio, but we can make it sound like it is!"

The worst part is, I instantly forgive them, as they are the reason I'm hearing Dave Grohl on skins again.


On the topic of great song titles:

Best Kissers in the World: "She Won't Get Under Me 'til I Get Over You"

Tom Waits: "Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis," "Bad Liver and a Broken Heart," and the ambitious, but never realized, "Conversation in a Car between Two Suspects After Having Knocked Over Yonkers Race Track with Three-and-a-Half Million Dollars, Riding in a '62 Nova, Headed in the Direction of East St. Louis"

I thought it added to the album. I took it as a shot at every ProTools homebrew/indytastic band with the guy who thinks "Hm... just a little more compression".

I mean, they had to know better... it's the only thing I can see that makes sense.

If you dig QOTSA, you may want to try some old Kyuss stuff as well. They were the original band for some of the members.

I dunno - is "Mama Get The Hammer, There's A Fly On Baby's Head" a real song?

Yeah, I saw Kyuss at some rathole in SF back in 1995. They were pretty awesome live.

The QOTSA album is alright. I'd say it's definitely a cut above most garbage rock that's out there.

However, as much as I like QOTSA, they were one of the most boring bands I've ever seen live.

I like Queens of the Stone Age as well, Got into them with their "R" record and this new one is good as well.

Is it me or does the lead singer look like Craig Kilborn's twin LoL
