QOTSA share much in common with my old 5.0 Mustang. It didn’t have any options, sounded like a beast at idle and ran like a mother when you opened it up. It couldn’t handle corners at all, but that never mattered to me. It was a machine with attitude. Just like these guys. QOTSA take a pure distillation of 70’s rock sensibility and drop it into the chassis of 90’s grunge to create something better than both. Simple, catchy rhythms, heavy riffs and lots of drums make this power trio an A list selection for any hard rock fan. If you want complexity in a power trio, buy some Rush, but if you just wanna rock, buy QOTSA.
