It seems to me that QOTSA is the closest to being unanimously appreciated by /mu/. Really, you cannot find any flaw in this band.
>you cannot find any flaw in this band
Proves that mu uses shit audio equipment for their music listening. Their music quality is almost unbearable to listen with any decent audio system. Can artist stop going to the loudness war maymay? Its embarrassing to both the artist and listeners alike.
>like clockwork didnt have good production....
> every proffesional producer i know thinks its amazing from a production stand point
nah i guess ill take some guy from a Vietnamese pottery image websites opinion instead.
The objective ranking of QOTSA's discog: Rated R > ...Like Clockwork > S/T > SFTD > LtP > Era Vulgaris
Also you're fucking retarded if you think the production on ...Like Clockwork is shit.
the reason everyone love qotsa is simple. they have it all.
swag *see smooth sailing*
groove *see misfit love*
wierdness *see the fun machine too a shit and died*
heaviness *see anything from songs for the dead*
Beauity *see suture up your future*
Artistic direction *see every album being starkly different yet still maintaining stylistic consistancy*
masterful lyricism *see if i had a tail*
they really dont have a weak point.
Man, I really wish I could be as cool as you guys, and listen to shitty music that no one cares about in order to feel better about the fact that no one likes me because I'm an anally retentive asshole who sees every conversation as a battle for mental superiority.
rated R is ironically over rated.
i really like it but its not their best album by a fucking long shot and it seems like everyone acts like its their magnum opus.
and lullibies is good but thats about it. i like some of the songs on there buts not anywhere near their best
IMO #1 like clockwork #2 songs for the deaf #3 era vulgaris

Things that helped get into them too was shit like seeing Josh Holme doing different projects and kinda just doing what he does the entire time but with variation, it's refreshing.
Anybody else ever have weird progressions for getting into bands?
Yeah, I have that kind of progression too sometimes. I missed out on their dual show with NIN because I wasn't a big fan of them at the time and regret it.
>Be turning 20 in a few weeks
>Only just discovering how great bands like NIN, QOTSA, Deftones etc are
>/mu/ widely considers this stuff "immature" to listen to at this age
Any other bands like these that I should know of?
QOTSA is one of the best acts live. Their I Appear Missing live version is absolutely breathtaking, especially the extended instrumental solos near the end.
Though, you don't want to disturb Josh while he is playing.
No idea man, I got a bunch of desert rock recc's thought from a classmate though.
Listening to some Unida band, they sound like earlier queens stuff. Also some band called Karma To Burn, they're alright.
Then there's Orange Goblin and Kyuss which are pretty good. Even Clutch to a certain extent.
You should not. Those are albums by Kyuss, not QOTSA.
Here is the official ranking of QOTSA albums:
>Like Clockwork>Songs For The Deaf>Rated R>Lullabies To Paralyze>Era Vulgaris
