For those staring wistfully at their well-worn copy of Queens of the Stone Age's debut and wondering what went wrong, there's always the second and third generation stoner rock bands, the ones that aren't quite ready to veer off the beaten path. The ten song Coma is thickly steeped in that early desert sound – hard hitting and riff friendly but with enough of a pop sheen to keep it catchy. It seems odd to compliment the band on presumed source material, but really, it was good hearing music that has an obvious nod to both the QOTSA split with Kyuss and the one with Beaver. For those wanting something more direct, try the Fu Manchu-inspired “White Knuckle Drive” or the prerequisite slow burning closer "Gainer." Ultimately, Three Hours to Coma will be filed squarely in the “Sounds like Queens of the Stone Age” category. There's not a lot that separates them from the pack, but, as I've said in the past, that's not really the point. Traditionalists will definitely dig this one.
