    Ok, every past album QOTSA has at least two clunkers on it. This one does as well! I won't list mine here. Either way this is classic QOTSA. I am guessing most reviewers that have bashed this and wrote it off did so after two or three listens. I have had this on repeat in the car and thru the cans. There is a lot going on here, and its pretty effing great. Not there best, but some sonic bliss built in on many of these tracks.
  • Another instant classic by QOTSA!

    Standout favorites so far for me are Domesticated Animals, Fortress, Head like a Haunted House, UnBorn Again and Hideaway. Domesticated Animals: Intro with synth stuff (I’m sensing a trend), a stiff march beat that makes me feel like (we) are child prisoners working in a post apocalyptic toy factory. More darkness. love it. Tell us where you keep the gold! Fortress: About falling in love and heartbreak. Droning synth intro (!) into tender Homme sickly-sweet moment that almost feels Dave Ghrol-like; cheesy Missing Persons keys, but then punch line tickles right before the the gavel drops. Un-Born Again: More 80’s Genesis synth that morphs into another Bowie-eque or perhaps Iggy Pop-esque thing. Then some great Homme lyrics that will take years to absorb. Hideaway: This one sounded great on my car stereo. More retro keyboard 80’s vibe, but this time we find Homme actually sounding happy. This track seems like a leftover from the Iggy Pop session. The Evil Has Landed: Another pre-release track that seems like something that might have made another Them Crooked Vultures album, which will likely never happen. Homme’s vocals remind me of Jack Bruce era Cream. Takes about 5 minutes to break out into some good old fashioned rock and roll. 9 tracks feels kind-of short, but the songs do average about 5 minutes each, so there’s that.

    If it had never been mentioned that Mark Ronson had anything to do with this album, 99% of these complaints wouldn't be here. As soon as fans heard any mention of a "pop" producer laying hands on this album they were ready to shoot it down before flight. My guess - most complainers aren't really giving the record a chance & that's a shame.
  • Josh Does It Again!!! Another Instant Classic.

    First off, I have to start off by saying that I am so sick and tired of all these haters and people that claim to be QOTSA fans yet they are always living in the past. If I see the words "Songs For The Deaf" or "Nick Oliveri" one more time in a review, I will lose my mind! The beauty of this band is that it is constantly evolving with every single album and aging like a fine wine. A rarity in the music industry these days. With that being said, don't let the Negative Nancies persuade you into not buying this album. Mark Ronson has a pretty good track record, he knows what he's doing. It's a finely crafted masterpiece and one of those albums that you can put on repeat and listen to over and over again. The ONLY gripe I have is that I wish that there were more songs! Other than that, I am thoroughly impressed with the diversity on this album and it was worth every penny that I spent. I highly recommmed it to anyone and everyone!
  • Love it

    This has become my favorite album by QOTSA. I was underwhelmed at first but I have too much respect for this band to just drop it. After a few listens at different times of the day and in different states of mind, I have come to admire the layers of this album that simply not noticed at first. Most negative reviews have come before the album was released (perhaps teased a little too much) or immediately after release. I disregard all these reviews. This is a great album from the a great group.
  • Fantastic!

    There are albums in bands where they go off the rail and try something new. U2 had Pop, Coldplay had Mylo Xyloto, and fans either love it or hate it. Me? QotSA have always been a bit heavy for me, so this eerie, synth and groan filled album with beats that make my foot tap one minute and head bang another is a pleasant surprise for me. Definetly the highlights of the album was the first song of the album "Feet Don't Fail Me Now" where they seemed to channel Franz Ferdinand in their moans and beats, and "Un-Reborn Again", but the other songs are worth a listen too. Be warned though you'll find little of those loud guitar growls and vocal power from "Song's For the Deaf" and it wouldn't be suprising for a disgruntled fan to call this a watered down version of "Like Clockwork". Personally, as much as I like this album, I hope this is just a one time thing, and they revamp that aggresive sound you get in some of their previous albums that we all know and love.
  • A solid album.🤘🏼

    What makes Queens so amazing is they are always incorporating new sounds into their albums. Each album tells a story and Josh is your narrator. Just as many great rock bands before QOTSA, true musicians challenge the norm and never stay stagnant in a cookie cutter album sound. To appreciate this is to know what makes Queens of the Stone Age a true Rock & Roll band. But don't take my word for it. 💫
