August 27, 2002 - E! Online: Songs for the Deaf Review
by staff
The hard-rock ranks would be wise to brush up on their Wayne's World impressions--because, no, you are not worthy of this massive Deaf jam. Tied together with hilariously inane deejay banter and powered by Foo Fighter Dave Grohl's assertive drumming, Deaf's heady, shape-shifting bombast is a sonic, butt-rockin' epiphany. Marrying shuddering power chords, trippy workouts and curiously catchy melodies, then going off on tangents that embrace everything from Nirvana-esque punk ("No One Knows") to psychedelic pop ("Another Love Song"), QOTSA flushes conventionality away like old bong water. Say hello to your new metal gods.
