These pioneers of stoner metal have 4 studio albums: Wretch, Blues for the Red Sun, Welcome to Sky Valley and ...And the Circus Leaves Town?
Which one do you like the most and why? And how would you rate other 3 albums?

It's tough but I'd probably go with Welcome To Sky Valley. That whole album is great and "Space Cadet" might be my favorite song they've written. I'd rank Kyuss's albums as follows -

Sky Valley
-big gap-

I also really like that Vista Chino record as well.

I agree with Morfiend above. I was SUPER into this band back in the 90's and although I loved "Blues for the Red Sun"- it was the first album of theirs I heard and I listened to it until my original tape wore out, I was blown away by how good "Sky Valley" was when I first listened to it. Almost every tune on there is just outstanding- it is their best one in my opinion. The other two are okay but not as consistent. "Wretch" actually has a couple good tunes on it; "Katzenjammer" is pretty good but the others are hit or miss.

I have only heard Blues for the Red Sun, so I am going to have to go with it. I always meant to check out more of their stuff, since I really enjoyed the one album I have heard, but it just has not happened yet.
