Queens of the Stone Age 

Lullabies to Paralyze

Queens of the Stone Age
Lullabies to Paralyze
(Interscope)
Queens of the Stone Age’s last album, Songs for the Deaf (2001), was a coming out party for a never-more deserving band. Alternative rock didn’t get any better, with lead singer/guitarist Josh Homme tearing up fuzzed-out party gems with a revolving who’s-who of music greats, including Gene Ween and drummer Dave Grohl. But the regulars moved on to other projects this time around and Lullabies suffers from what is basically a Homme solo project. He pulls it off on highlights such as the churning “Little Sister” and the foreboding, moody centrepiece “Someone in the Wolf.” But the similarity of songs throughout the rest of the record could mean it’s time for Homme to find a new batch of muses.
