Queens of the Stone Age – Songs For The Deaf (2002)
You can literally see Dave Grohl smiling as he bashes away on this masterpiece. The last of the first trio of records QOTSA put out, and every moment on it is sheer joy, which is why old Dave is smiling so much. “First He Giveth” and “Go With the Flow” are, to me, the standouts but everything else is sheer magic too. The next record was not my fav (to say the least), but this one is a mega wonder.
