    i can't understand why everyone votes so high this album. In my opinion it's the worst album of them and i give you some reasons: 1. the production is horrible (why do they sound better live than in the album?). 2. The drums are soooo hiiiigh and so simples!(i hope grohl plays with them nevermore). 3. Only have 4 o 5 great songs, the other songs are just mediocre.(if we just i can't understand why everyone votes so high this album.

    I don't understand the hype. I have listened to the album, I have tried to like it....but it is just another mediocre album released by a mediocre band.

    I certainly appreciate Josh Homme and his vision for rock and roll, but as a whole, I cannot recommend this album. It starts out relatively strong, but takes a dive in the second half. Download "No One Knows" and "Go with the Flow" and leave the rest of the album alone.

  1. 'The Sky Is Fallin' is a beast.... 'God Is In The Radio' has got just such an awesome riff, like the Lord himself hotwired to a Marshall amp.

    While cliches abound... this huge music is delivered with panache. [#9, p.154]
  3. 'Songs For The Deaf' is a triumph, a record forged with fire and sweat in the pits of Valhalla... It is the very essence of Rock.
