Boris - Heavy Rocks (2002)

Boris is a Japanese three-piece band who combine apparently whatever the fuck genres they feel like, most prominently variations of doom, drone, stoner, sludge, noise, and a few other psychedelic things - also, most recently pop. This is my favorite of their full-lengths, it's amazingly catchy and heavy-as-fuck stoner rock. The production is ideal for the style, with emphasis on the crushingly massive guitars. The lyrics are Japanese, so I have no idea what the album's main theme is, not that I really care. This shit is great.
