Sometime during the summer of 2002, after HS and before college, I gave a chance to the album “Songs for the Deaf” by Queens of the Stone Age. I was familiar with radio staples of the time “Go with the Flow” and “No One Knows”, and I had purchased 10 used CD’s priced 7.99 or above from the now defunct CD Warehouse in Goldsboro NC, making me eligible for a free used CD.

Now I will finally get to see them play in Asheville this September supporting their new release “…Like Clockwork”, which is an excellent addition to their discography. I must say, I’m a bit relieved it isn’t mediocre (like “Era Vulgaris”) or terrible (like the new Alice in Chains album).
