  • Audio Mixers: Josh Homme; Marek; Trina Shoemaker.
  • Recording information: Sound City Studios, Van Nuys, CA (12/1999-02/2000).
  • Josh Homme's creation Queens Of The Stone Age, although they remain close to their rock roots, are a complex amalgam of atmosphere and textures. RATED R is a retro-sounding album, recorded on two 16-track machines by producer Chris Goss (Masters Of Reality) and GRAMMY award winning engineer Trinia Shoemaker.
  • The band's name pokes fun at the homophobic rednecks that Homme says used to attend Kyuss (his former band) shows. Some of the album's highlights are "The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret," "Feel Good Hit of the Summer" and "Better Living Through Chemistry." Former Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan has some sublime moments on a few tracks, including "In the Fade." RATED R is a unique, eclectic album.
Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (6/22/00, pp.127-8) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...A strange, category-evading rock record, a mystery disc of gravity and low humor, of punk aggression and love-bead contentment....improving on the strengths of [their] first album and shooting into areas that you wouldn't expect..."

Spin (1/01, p.73) - Ranked #8 in Spin's "Top 20 Albums of the Year [2000]" - "...Mysteriously beautiful, smartly stoopid psychedelic jams, complete with jet planes and monsters..."

Q (9/00, p.111) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...[A] mighty record....[They] may well have a sleeper hit on their hands..."

Uncut (10/00, p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...A revved-up jet engine of twisted Sabbath riffs and taut Krautrock rhythms..."

CMJ (5/29/00, p.3) - "...Continues to broaden [their] scope while introducing some experimental chutzpah to their sound....Fuzz guitar hero Josh Homme keeps listeners on their toes....successfully employing pop-flavored enhancements....markedly different from [their] debut..."

Melody Maker (6/27/00, p.75) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...No mess. No fuss. Just 12 songs of good, solid rock. Rock with all the [b.s.] stripped away....100 per cent unapologetic metal..."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.52) - "[A]n 11-step guide to hedonistic heaven..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.61) - Ranked #47 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "[M]aking their unique sound -- as relentless as metal, as eerily groovy as Can -- one of the world's most envied."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.110) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "RATED R leaps instantly out of its genre packet into a world where polka rhythms, free jazz and punk rock ramalama share airspace with repetitive Kraut-metal riffing..."

Mojo (Publisher) (9/00, p.91) - "...[They] can really kick it like The Stooges did, like Black Flag, The MC5 and Nirvana....you can't help but be smitten..."

NME (Magazine) (12/30/00, p.77) - Rated #1 in NME's "Top 50 Albums Of The Year".

NME (Magazine) (6/3/00, p.40) - 9 out of 10 - "...A heady mix of speed-addled punk rock, huge, sky-filling psychedelic majesty and sex-crazed black humor....It's just the best, most important rock album for years....The new rock royalty have come to claim their throne..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "[O]ne of the last great modern hard rock records and something deceptively tuneful, groove-bitten, and even melancholic."

Uncut (magazine) (p.105) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "There's an almost mathematical precision to the freak-outs like 'Better Living Through Chemistry'."
