I did a search, and there are no threads specifically about these fellas, and I figured I'd correct this injustice. For those of you who don't know, this is the band Josh Homme of QOTSA was in before QOTSA. What's everyone's favorite album? I was told that Blues for the Red Sun was best by a number of people... it's got a nice vibe to it, but few hooks. It's just kinda there. And the Circus Leaves Town on the other hand, since I bought it about 2 years ago, I've listened to it at least over 100 times. But then again, I got "Blues" about a month ago and it hasn't had time to settle with me. I also Dig Scott Reeder moreso than Nick Oliveri on bass, Scott's tone has more presence, and his grooves more often play off the guitar instead of following it. Size Queen's "Chorus" part I think is a perfect example, Josh Homme is playing a fast little guitar riff, but the bass/drums are slow and heavy, therefore it has this huge groove to it instead of just METAL!!!!!!
