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.

A One Star Reviewer Needs A Brain

Hey Dingleberry, why would you rate the album as one star? Your gripe is with ITunes, not this masterpiece of music. Sure, blame the band- you don't look like too much of a moron. I bet they all got together one night and said, "I sure hope ITunes will include this album so we can only offer the clean version..." Got a complaint? Take it up with ITunes. People want to know what you think of the MUSIC, not of your take on the PMRC.
GREAT ALBUM. ONE OF THE BEST OF ALL TIME IN THIS GENRE.

AMAZING!!

this CD has never failed to amaze, it has some of the best uitar licks you may ever hear. The pounding drums and thudding bass. ALL the instruments are downtuned to C tuning. ULTIMATE STONER METAL!!! Josh Hommie is a guitar GOD! i love how he would play through a bass amp and get such high vibrations and power coming through the speakers. trust me, BUY THIS CD

You won't know what hit you.

Easily one of the greatest (yes, I said greatest) bands there ever was. They have a cult following and hundreds of bands trying to now sound like Kyuss. Some have come close, but there isn't anything like 'em. Listen to 50 Million Year Trip and if your jaw isn't hitting the ground when you get to the time change - you're a moron. 'Nuff said.
