Queens Of The Stone Age 'Songs For The Deaf'
‘Songs for the Deaf’ is the best rock record about eternal recurrence. There is a path with a definite start and a little less definite end, and along the way there’s acres of familiar terrain, signs of rock as it were in the past, as it always is. Loosely, it’s a concept record about driving from Los Angeles to the Joshua Tree with only a radio to entertain you. No tapes, no CDs, aux cables weren’t really a thing then. Bad U-Haul, worn down truck with 150k on it, they don’t say. The radio is meant to guide us through all the different ways *Deaf* rocks us, yet there’s more to it.

ANDY O’CONNOR
Andy O'Connor's mom bought him a copy of Fargo Rock City during his freshman year of high school, hoping he would become the next Klosterman and bring honor to the O'Connor name. Instead, he's a metal critic who lives in Austin, Texas, and who has written for Spin, Pitchfork, Noisey, and more. His metal column, DEAF FOREVER is on Vinyl Me, Please every month. At least he's the best metal critic living in Austin. @andy_oconnor

How we keep your records spinning.
Discover new music

Discover new music.

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.
Special editions

Score special-edition records (available nowhere else).

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Special editions
Swaps

Swap it out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
No contracts or strings. You can cancel at any time.
