YES. The one true stoner band. Kyuss aren't pre-QOTSA. QOTSA are post-Kyuss.

What's your favourite album? Mine has to be Welcome To Sky Valley. Gardenia blew me away the first time I put on that album, it literally blew me away...

Welcome To Sky Valley is an amazing album. Their stuff is reasonably hard to find in most shops. Admittedly I don't go searching them out very often, but all I've got is Sky Valley and ...And The Circus Leaves Town. I've found their Best Of, but not much a fan of Best Ofs.

To me, their music will always supercede Queens Of The Stone Age. I respect Josh Homme for carrying on the sound, but it's just not as effortless, I find.

I went to a HMV close to where I live and found every studio album except Sons of Kyuss and Wretch although I did find Wretch in another Store. That being said I bought Welcome to Sky Valley cause I prefer Scott Reeder to Nick, and I agree with redh0chilip3pp that Space Cadet is genius..

Wow, I definitely thought this band was gonna be more talked about here. Admitedly, I haven't heard a lot, but I definitely like what I've heard. I've been meaning to get an album of theirs for quite some time time, but it's just never happened.

Blues for the Red Sun is my favourite. Thumb, Green Machine, Thong Song, Capsized, and Writhe are great songs. The rest of the albums not bad either. Welcome to Sky Valley is great too with Demon Cleaner being my favourite Kyuss song. Great drums and opening guitar riff and, of course, vocals.

I love Kyuss man. Working on tabbing out Phototropic at the moment, I love that song.

I am a big fan of QOTSA. and though I am trying to understand all the hype about Kyuss, I still do not find them as good as Josh's new band. Sorry guys

Took me a little while to get into them too, but now I find myself listening to them more than QOTSA. My favourite album of theirs use to be Welcome To Sky Valley, but now I've taken more of a liking to Blues For The Red Sun.

There's a video of Gardenia [live] on YouTube (one of many) that's 13 minutes long. It's amazing and Josh has hysterical hair. Check it out.

Kyuss. One of my favorite bands of course (just look at my avatar.) Anyways, I've got Blues, Sky Vallen and ...And the Circus Leaves Town, and am in pursuit of the rest of the discography.

Oh, and I think Odyssey is my favorite song of theirs.

Love Kyuss, but whenever I try to get my friends into it, they can't appreciate it like we do.

My favorite album has to be And the Circus Leaves Town. Phototropic, Catamaran, Hurricane what else can you ask for?
