Boy oh boy did I make a good decision, I passed up the chance to buy Pantera’s new one for Sky Valley by Kyuss. I’d never actually heard Kyuss’s music, but I’d heard a great deal about them. So I gave it a try, and damn this one is right there with TooL(my fav band). Kyuss has a unique sound and they’re music is like nothing you’ll ever hear. From Gardenia to Whitewater this is a great musical journey. The music really touches your soul. Though it would be hard to pick a favorite song I’d have to say Space Cadet is the standout track of the entire album. It really takes you away, whenever I listen to it (or the album in general) it’s like I’m in another world.It’s said the best music is the music you can fall asleep to well here it is. I strongly recomend you listen to this album while reading Tolkien for that mystical journey feel and the not knowing what to expect sort of feeling, because this album is full of suprises. Once you’ve heard Gardenia(opening song) you’ll be in awe. Kyuss had the talent and the balls to do something different and thought they never made it big, they will forever be remembered by those who have heard they’re music. Once you’ve heard the music you’ll be hooked and everything else (aside from TooL, soungarden and a few other metal bands)namely rapcore or numetal whatever you want to label that …, will seem like well… Take my advice buy this album, you’ll be doing yourself a favor.
