All I have to say about this disc is wow. Imagine Queens of the Stone Age with a little harder sound, and you have a vague idea of what Smoke Follows Beauty sounds like. While the disc is continually plagued by weak-sounding vocals, the instrumentation is simply amazing. In fact, as I continued listening to the disc, I found it easier and easier to tune out the vocals and just listen to each strain of the guitars and other instruments. While each of the tracks are at the longer end of 4 or even 5 minutes, the time melts away as if it were nothing. Pick up this disc, as this transcends anything I can say about it.
