Review of "Rated R - Queens of the Stone Age"
There are a handful of magazines that would like you to believe that this album is the new Nevermind. When are they going to realise that there isn't going to be "a new Nevermind"? That album marked a cultural shift and brought a genre to mainstream attention. Expecting the same of Rated R is, frankly, asking too much. It's good but not a classic.Neither is it as original as claimed. There's definitely more than a hint of Soundgarden in its bombastic grooves, although it's not actually that heavy. Aside from self-assured opener Feelgood Hit Of The Summer and the aptly-titled "Quick & To The Pointless", it's moderately paced and may disappoint those in search of intense rawk and twiddly guitar solos.
Mind you, it's definitely a grower. Maybe I'll have changed my opinion in a few weeks.
