EDITORS’ NOTES

With Josh Homme feeding his guitar through a bass cabinet, Nick Oliveri digging his basslines deep enough to rattle the earth’s core, and John Garcia howling from some sun-scorched spot in the middle of the California desert, Kyuss’ second album married early grunge to late-’60s acid rock—planting the seed from which stoner rock sprouted. Gut-churning slabs of ultra-distorted, tripped-out sludge like “Thumb” and “Molten Universe” plow ahead like bulldozers reshaping the moon—picking up steam, sending meteors into orbit, and leaving craters in their wake.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

The True Feel Good Hit(s) Of Summer

From the oversized and loud drums, the deep grooving bass and that fuzzy-loud-it'll never get old-guitar sound.
I came across this from simply listening to Pandora or iTunes Radio and decided to travel along and see who they were.. As soon as you hear this song, it'd make you want to jump inside your truck or car and blow s--- up in the hot desert with this blasting through your ears enough for everyone else to take notice. Without a doubt, 11/10 stars right here.

Kyuss Then,
Kyuss Now,
Kyuss Lives Forever.

what?

Any jerk that thinks this music has anything to do with Dio is an idiot. Almost 25 years after its release there are still bands trying to be this heavy. Dio was great but wasn’t this at all.

Oh...what i have missed

Here I was...pleasantly surrounded by my Electric Wizard, Orange Goblin, and High On Fire riffs and thnking i had all i needed in stoner/doom. People Had said Kyuss! Kyuss! But i wouldn't listen. Then I stumbled onto this gem. Incredible! Just an amazing cd by musicians who truly know what they are doing. listen to these people and GET THIS!!!
