    Again, as QOTSA release another album with a completely different sound to any of their others. A lot of my faovurite QOTSA songs are included on this album (Tangled Up In Plaid, Burn The Witch, Little Sister, Someone's In The Wolf) and had the last few songs been as good as the first 3/4s of the album, it really would be a perfect 10.

    This is a fantastically dark and atmospheric album from QotSA. The album maintains a unique and hypnotic tone that is equal parts dreadful, cocky, and creepy. The musical arrangement is phenomenal with great use of heavily distorted, fuzzy guitar tones and lap steels. This album is quite varied with each song containing it's own unique and memorable take on the Queens sound. An instant classic and an extremely underrated album. Expand

  1. The macho posturing can get obnoxious.... That said, anyone looking for a band that can mix and match metal, blues, thrash, punk, psychedelia, and grunge as the mood suits will be floored by Lullabies. [25 Mar 2005, p.70]
  2. It's the tension between Homme's conflicting impulses that pressurizes Lullabies to Paralyze's highest points and accounts for its lows.

    Sounds routine, obscure without much mystery. [Apr 2005, p.124]
