QOTSA Rated R Reissue!

Honestly, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE are one of those bands I sort of stopped paying attention to after they released Songs for the Deaf. It’s not that their music quality diminished, but I grew tired of hearing about them. Top tier radio played the crap out of them, they started to play all the cheesy “key market” music festivals, their fan base started to reach to those that played Disturbed on regular rotation, etc. In other words, they became a rock n’roll success story. However, I must say that their stunning and pretty much perfect  album Rated R (2000) is one of the best rock albums I own. It’s part stoner rock, with a heavy dirty garage-punk vibe that is just catchy as hell from start to finish. That said, I’m pretty excited to hear it’s getting the reissue treatment and I can only hope they release a vinyl version as well! It’s a trip that this album is already 10 years old.
