As far as stoner rock as a genre is concerned I’m not the guy to talk to. When I hear the term “stoner rock” I think of two things instantly – that one Goblin Cock music video where the band is in these reaper outfits on a beach. But I only think of that after I think of WELCOME TO SKY VALLEY by KYUSS. So, again, I’m no authority on the genre, but I know great music when I hear it.
In my far from humble opinion “Sky Valley” deserves a spot on any 90′s top 100 list and it should easily break the top 50 of those list (I don’t usually check lists, but if it isn’t on all of them there’s a problem). Originally released in 1994, Welcome To Sky Valley is Kyuss’s third album and is considered to be their magnum opus by many. I’m quite fond of 1994. Some of my favorite records of all time were released in ‘94. Maybe I’ll make my own list.
