My Formative Albums Of The 00’s: No. 9: Queens Of The Stone Age – Songs For The Deaf
Songs For The Deaf changed the way I listened to music. Before, I had never been into a band as cool or heavy as the Queens and as a result was taken prisoner by their sexy sounds. Like most people, the No One Knows sngle was my way in to the rest of the album, which paved the way for me to look back and discover Rated R and their S/T. I then assaulted myself with desert-friendly sounds like Masters Of Reality, Kyuss and Mondo Generator. It was awesome. I stumbled upon a trend of music that was seperated from the mainstream and was actually, well, cool.
If you havent heard this album all I can do is plead with you to listen to it. It will cdhange your life. That is all.
