    Hey, one question. Wasn't there a 1992 US edition on vinyl? What happened?

      Everyone who is pointing out the muddiness or quietness of vinyl pressings needs to know that this album just doesn’t sound very good. It was deliberately recorded with exaggerated bass frequencies throughout, and it’s too long for a single LP (which decreases volume). These aren’t pressing problems, it’s just the nature of the album.

            The end of the '80s through the '90s saw a few different R'n'R revivals, but none quite like the desert rock that sprouted from Southern California's cracked earth. A seemingly infertile landscape, there were no clubs, no hype, and hell, hardly any official albums released for a while. Blue collar dudes cracked beers, lit joints, and plugged into what were known as "generator parties", playing for desert-dwelling crowds that probably consisted of more lizards and scorpions than actual people. This was about as DIY as you could get. And crouching in the distance, beneath the red sun over the horizon, we can barely make out the silhouettes of a band called Kyuss. For all their sophomoric simplicity and slacker attitude, it would have been anyone's guess that they'd actually produce one of the most influential pieces of an entire new subset of rock music: Stoner metal.
            Get in your beat-up Camaro, point it away from society, and put this on. You'll get it. Gruff, heavy, distorted. Dumb lyrics. Crashing cymbals and down-tuned power chords. Or as Joshua Garcia belts out in "Thong Song": "No brains. All braaaaaawwwn."
            Shit-kicking cactus-crunching dirty rock music.
