So hard to pick a favorite Kyuss song. I really like Phototropic, Asteroid, Molten Universe, Hurricane and Catamaran. No particular order.

2 weeks ago I only had ...and the circus leaves town.
Then I went a bought blues for the red sun, and not more than a week later Welcome to sky vallley and wretch.
I really love thumb,the first track off blues for the red sun.That intro sound thing is amazing.
For those who don't know,that kinda of warm sound at the start is flangered bass feedback.
I wish kyuss had continued after ...and the circus leaves town.
I think by that time they had perfected the art of that,chilled out,slow heaviness.

Would anyone else agree that catamaran sound slightly chili peppers-ish?

In a way I guess, but not really. I can't compare it to anything really.

This, i only have blues for the red sun and my brother has ...And the circus leaves town, i like what i've heard from sky valley, some of the songs like 50 million year trip and supa scoop and the mighty scoop are awesome because they have balls to the wall, dirty riffs followed by a spaced out interlude or something.

Comparing them to QOTSA is hard, i think Queens have some garage rock elements (stooges, kinks, etc), making them more approachable to a casual listener, whereas kyuss is straight, fuzzed out robotic groove, and the repetition of the riffs or Garcias vocals might be hard to take a liking to at first, but in my opinion its in a bracket of its own and is criminally underrated.

I listened to it last night and it does. It has a Chili Peppers structure to it like the interaction between the bass and guitar.

This band is underrated. Nothing beats the feeling Kyuss spread through their music.

I have a question thats been buggin me for a while. When was Nick Oliveri in Kyuss, because every video I've seen (except for thong song) looks like it has Scott Reeder in it (including Green Machine).

Left after they recorded Blues For The Red Sun, and apparently before they shot the Green Machine vid.

I actually done a presentation on Kyuss when i studied music at college, but i can't remember the specifics of it, going by what dead-fish said, and my own knowledge, Nick was in it from Wretch until Blues for the red sun, before this i believe they had a guy called Chris Cockrell on bass, i think that was during the Sons of Kyuss period, a little piece of trivia, Cockrell played keyboard in The Mars Volta for a short time as well after Kyuss, although this was about a decade later.

They are all fantasic songs, have you heard Supa Scoop And the Mighty Scoop, 50 Million Year Trip, and Freedom Run yet? They are some of my favourites, just because they start off pretty crazy but then go into some mellow freak out ****, i recommend those songs.

Freedom run would be an awesome song for a car racing game. In fact, I'm gonna listen to it now.
