QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE ! 10 years ago…

March 21, 2005…


Album: ‘Lullabies To Paralyze’
Artist: Queens Of The Stone Age …
Core of the band: Josh Homme – Troy Van Leeuwen and Joey Castello.
Release date: March 21, 2005 – 10 years ago !
My impressions: dynamic stoner rock exorcism – their most melodic album with Josh Homme calling all the shots after Oliveri’s departure – heavy riffs and drones all over the canvas and some creepy lullabies – at times a bit inconsistent, sagging and losing steam but definitely a hard rockin’ cracker to spin again !
Highlights: Medication / Burn The Witch / Little Sister / Broken Box / “You Got A Killer Scene There, Man” …
Collaborators: the lead guitar and backup vocals for ‘Burn The Witch’ are provided by ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons – Mark Lanegan (‘This Lullaby’ & some backing vocals) – Chris Goss – Jack Black – Jesse Hughes (Eagles Of Death Metal) – Shirley Manson (Garbage) and Homme’s wife Brody Dalle…

Album review ratings – 78 / 100
