The second Queens of the Stone Age album, R makes its stoner rock affiliations clear right from the opening track. The lyrics of "Feel Good Hit of the Summer" consist entirely of a one-line list of recreational drugs that Josh Homme rattles off over and over, a gag that gets pretty tiresome by the end of the song (and certainly doesn't need the reprise that follows "In the Fade"). Fortunately, the rest of the material is up to snuff. R is mellower, trippier, and more arranged than its predecessor, making its point through warm fuzz-guitar tones, ethereal harmonies, vibraphones, horns, and even the odd steel drum. That might alienate listeners who have come to expect a crunchier guitar attack, but even though it's not really aggro, R is still far heavier than the garage punk and grunge that inform much of the record. It's still got the vaunted Arizona-desert vibes of Kyuss, but it evokes a more relaxed, spacious, twilight feel, as opposed to a high-noon meltdown. Mark Lanegan and Barrett Martin of the Screaming Trees both appear on multiple tracks, and their band's psychedelic grunge -- in its warmer, less noisy moments -- is actually not a bad point of comparison. Longtime Kyuss fans might be disappointed at the relative lack of heaviness, but R's direction was hinted at on the first QOTSA album, and Homme's experimentation really opens up the band's sound, pointing to exciting new directions for heavy guitar rock in the new millennium.

 Wot a great album!!

this rock n roll pearl is Qotsa second studio album,

Oh man what a record,all the way from the Joshua Tree into my ears. With deep songs like "I Think i lost my headache" and party mode song "Feel Good Summer Hit" wich is based on the lead Singer Josh Homme drug experience one windy night walking to his hotell from, a party back in the Kyuss days. and ofcourse the awesome song "The lost art of keeping secrets" This is a must in your rock record collection /Luca Blanca

another great album with a lot of noisy guitars, great rythms and quite explicit lyrics (rated R). it's not garage rock, it's not (heavy) metal, it's not grunge, .... it's queens of the stone age and as such very original.
also more 'adult' (i.e. grown up) than josh hommes' other band eagles of death metal, where adolescent fun-rock is the focus. this is serious stuff with the fun-factor tuned down.
highly recommended
