  • I loved QOTSA back in the day, around 2000 or so was when i first heard them. First album i had was the self titled debut and for my money its still their best album. Its the most raw, straightforward rock album they have. Everything else after that was meandering averageness. Rated R had about 4 or 5 good songs and the rest was just forgettable. I can barely remember anything off that album now. SFTD was great at first but the more i listened to it the more i got annoyed with the stupid radio bits in between every damn song, and the mid section of the album is totally just meh. It completely peters out until the final song. Never bothered listening to anything after that.
    Its the same way foo fighters went ****, too many side projects and not enough focus on their main bands and both foos and qotsa went to ****.




  • Think your man Mark Lannigan has some irish roots.




  • It's hard to say as they're all so different, their first self entitled album is my favourite, love every song on it. I started with Songs for the Deaf and found it quite hard to get into, but is said to be their best album. Era Vulgaris is a great album, a good variety of heavy and soft songs that I didnt like either at the start but now love. Rated R would be my least favourite but definitely has 2-3 big hits on it. Lullabies is quite eerie but worth getting into. ..like clockwork is an amazing album and their latest, I would probably start with that!




  • Never liked Era Vulgaris bar one or two songs. The first three are very good, Rated R especially good. I would hate to see them make the same album over and over.




  • I don't think they've hit the same heights since Olivieri (sp?) left. He brought a manic energy that countered some of tendency towards the droning sound the band can have.

  • They're the best rock band of the noughties by a stretch in my opinion.

  • So ...

    The easiest album of QOTSA to get is probably like clockwork

    After here is in my opinion albums from the easiest to find to the hardest to find

    Like clockwork...< Songs for the deaf < Rated R < Queens of the stone age < Lullabies to paralyze < Era vulgaris

    After my first was songs for the deaf , after in chronologic way i bought Like clockwork , rated R , at the same time lullabies to paralyze and queens of the stone age and the hardest album who i search for about a year was era vulgaris .

    After the rarest pearls of QOTSA , in rarity order (from the - rarest class to the + rarest )

    Classic albums < Deluxe editions albums < Singles Albums < some of their vinyles like ERA VULGARIS TIME ( who is in my possesion )

    The most rarest disc of Qotsa are probably the singles vinyles ( who are most of time with stickers as a gift ) who i search from some years .

    The rarest vinyl or the rarest merch of QOTSA is the single vinyle THE FUN MACHINE TOOK A **** AND DIED

    If you have more questions u can ask me

    hope i was helpfull

    I say this too.
    *cough* Porcupine Tree *cough*

    Unreal band ltogether, in my top 3.

    As for QotSA albums, if I had to choose favourites in an order:

    Like clockwork
    Lullabies to Paralyse
    Rated R
    QotSA
    SFTD
    Era Vulgaris


    And SFTD is high up on my favourite albums made too!




  • me my favorite albums in order from best to <<bad>> ;
    Queens of the stone age > era vulgaris > songs for the deaf > lullabies to paralyze > rated R > like clockwork

    Agreed. I think Queens have become a bit po-faced and self indulgent in his absence. Rated-R through to Songs for the Deaf were the peak years.




  • Not quite QOTSA but am watching / listening to this at the minute, a second album would be nice. First one was stand out brilliant.

    I disagree slightly, there's a lot of wankery on the album. Oh look what I can do, certain songs are over drawn. Could of been a sharper snappier album.

    Caught them in Download, excellent performance. I'd like to hear new material too.

    Ah but here, thats what super groups are all about. They're not QOTSA, FF etc......




  • Josh seems to have gone off the rails, kicking a photographers camera in her face and also at the same show spoke obscenities about Muse (who were billed after them) and referred to audience members as "retards" :eek:

    He didn't have the best of nights!

  • I think he was probably off his head, seemed genuinely contrite in the video he posted today.

    It was a ****ty thing to do, a real dick move, but let's not hope the reactions to this get too out of hand.

    Always struck me as a funny but very arrogant guy. He apologised, and as long as he sorts the photographer out for medical bills, a new camera and compensation, that should be that. A stupid thing to do, but we've all done silly things when off our heads.
    The social media mob won't have it though, until he is in jail most likely...
    Maybe Josh's arrogance finally caught up with him...
