A solid first effort that should not be overlooked. While it only has a few standout tracks (If Only, Avon), the album holds well as a whole. I enjoy this album most when I play it front to back, whereas I often struggle to pick a song from this album that I want to hear alone (aside from the aforementioned). No dull moments that I can immediately think of.

All round a solid album, but definitely not masterworks like some of their later releases.

Great album. Not as big in production value as the later albums. But raw and direct.
No outstanding tracks here imo..
Points for track title: 'These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For' :)

This might be my favorite of theirs. The bass on this album is a forced to be reckoned with.

Walkin' On The Sidewalks is actually my favorite song... usually I don't like such repetition, but it works very well for that song.

Very solid album.

Robot rock. A great way to start their career. It has a lot of impressive riffs, and stands the passage of time very well.

Best: If Only, You Can't Quit Me Baby
Worst: Walking On The Sidewalks

Their most authentic effort - direct, hard, and great simplicity.

Rock solid debut from QOSTA (one of my favorite groups), the sound mainly abridges the sandy stoner rock of Kyuss and the more diverse sound of QOSTA. There are a lot of great songs on here but the easy winner is the hooky yet melancholy "If Only", which ranks among the best of Homme's work. Other highlights include the murky and psychedelic "You Would Know", the galloping "Regular John" and "Avon", the ominous riffage of the unrequited love song "You Can't Quit Me Baby", and the imagery heavy "Mexicola". Besides that most of the songs are sufficient but not necessarily memorable in the Queens' catalog. But the music skills here are impressive, especially Homme's bass playing. All in all, a great album, but it is easily overshadowed by Homme's later work.

While I do hate the cover art I prefer th QOTSA's debut more than their subsesquant albums, this one was more unique and had a power thats missing in the rest of their discography. In first listen you may not like it much except for the opening track which is OMG. But in subsequant listens you will unravel the album and starts to see through the layers of similar sounding songs to see its hidden personality of each songs.
