Wretch is straight out of the garage, quite raw and unpolished, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Josh Homme was 17/18 in 1991 when Kyuss' debut album Wretch was released. Yup, you read that right. His development is apparent in Kyuss' later efforts, but that's not meant as a slight to his hard-hitting riffs on this album. Wretch is a bit slower and bluesier than their later stuff, which can make it sound harder. The sometimes brainless testosterone-charged lyrics (as illustrated by "Son of a Bitch" and "Big Bikes"), won't win any awards, but they mesh just fine with the dirty guitar/bass riffs.

The best tune on the album, and one of my top 5 Kyuss songs ever, is a little ditty called "I'm Not." It might not catch your attention right away, but after a few listens, it makes its way to the top. "Son of a Bitch" is a great example of Kyuss' bass-driven sound and bassist Nick Oliveri's sound comes through loud and clear on this whole album. "Isolation" fills out the top 3 on the LP, probably the fastest track on the album.
