iTunes Review

Kyuss’ fourth studio album was its last full-length before the band’s 15-year split, which found guitarist Josh Homme founding Queens of the Stone Age before performing with Eagles of Death Metal and Them Crooked Vultures (with Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones). The raw production and stripped-down songwriting on ...And the Circus Leaves Town has aged remarkably well since its 1995 release. “Hurricane” opens, throwing sonic punches and sounding like a tougher sibling of Queens of the Stone Age. “One Inch Man” is even catchier and more simply arranged. “Catamaran” boasts the cleanest guitar tones, and it comes close to propelling the band beyond its blueprints until Homme’s guitar growl triggers the chorus like so many rock songs of the '90s. The 34-minute triptych “Spaceship Landing” closes on an epic note.

Circus Freak!

Words cannot describe this Masterpiece - equal in my opinion to Sky Valley. KYUSS left town and left us wanting more...alas....this was the band's last album. This is one of those disks that you just press play and snap one through - and you are ready for a heavy trip. Phototropic is a blended and layered psychotropic like nothing I have ever heard. Spaceship Landing picks up where Sky Valley left off with THICK riffs - I say it's the heaviest song ever. These guys were so far ahead of everyone else that they got lost on their way out of the desert. Now their disks are like buried bones in the sand. Quite a find for those lucky enough to dig 'em up. But I don't know about the CLEAN LYRICS.

Finally!!

I love that first song "Hurricane" It goes well with NFS MW, Carbon, and even high stakes, and you're speeding at 200+ mph and ramming things as well. I love the guitar in that song. Get it NOW!!!

One of their best

I find it hard to describe Kyuss which is partly why I like them so much. If you're a fan of bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains, and Tool, odds are you'll find something to like. Their music is fast, hard, and raw and this is definitely one of their best albums. This one and Welcome to Sky Valley are my two favorites.

Biography

Formed: 1990 in Palm Desert, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

Hailing from Palm Desert, CA, Kyuss (pronounced "kai-uss") has become something like a heavy metal equivalent to the Velvet Underground. Although they are widely acknowledged as pioneers of the booming stoner rock scene of the 1990s, the band enjoyed little commercial success during their brief existence, but their combination of sludgy, down-tuned guitars (often played through a bass amp for maximum, earth-shaking intensity), spacey jams, galloping thrash metal rhythms, and organic drums became...
